Here is an excerpt from the article.

Warner added that the oil and gas industry is “adopting technology pretty radically.” In fact, some of the technologies Pedigree uses originated in the oil and gas industry, typically referred to as SCADA (Supervisor Control and Data Acquisition systems).

“We’re kinda like a SCADA on steroids,” Warner said. “If we can use technologies to monitor, track, manage equipment and streamline logistics with cellular networks and data networks – everyone wants to make the whole oil and gas delivery process and service process very streamlined and so the educational market is already there.”

Announcing the OneView Mobile Fluid Monitoring Solution

The Pedigree Technologies OneView® platform now allows for continuous remote monitoring of fluid levels in moving tanker trailers

(FARGO, N.D.) — Pedigree Technologies LLC today announced the release of a mobile fluid monitoring system in partnership with Pro-Fab Industries Inc. of Arborg, Manitoba and Titan Logix Corp. of Edmonton, Alberta. When used alongside the Titan Logix TD80™ liquid-level gauging system, the Pedigree Technologies OneView platform can be used to remotely monitor levels of crude, produced water, acid, jet fuel and other liquid chemicals being hauled in tanker trailers.

The TD80 gauging system is used to send fluid level readings to the OneView platform, which combines the data with the tank’s real-time GPS location. This allows a company to monitor tanks and other assets remotely and ensure proper handling is taking place. Pedigree Technologies Director of Product Management, Joshua DeCock said, “The main benefit of this feature is that companies can track where and how much fluid is picked up and dropped off. This gives traceability and helps ensure people are not dumping illegally or handling fluids improperly.”

5 Summer Safety Tips for Your Fleet

In the Midwest, there is a common adage that there are two seasons — winter and road construction season. As we enter the summer months and road construction season, temperatures rise and roadways become obstacle courses with lane closures. Road work can be especially challenging for the larger vehicles in your fleet.

Check out these five safety tips that will help keep your business operating smoothly as temperatures soar and delays occur.

 

1. Be Careful in Work Zones

There are about 87, 606 crashes annually in road construction zones. Slow down, leave enough room, and watch your blind spots!

2. Pay Attention to Road Signs

Even on familiar roads, signs might have changed to include information about road closures and conditions.

3. Perform a Summer Inspection

  • Check tire treads and pressure.
  • Check wiper blades.
  • Change oil.
  • Check brakes, battery, radiator, cooling, and air conditioning systems.
  • Check lights (headlights, brake lights, turn signals, etc.).

4. Get Maintenance Reminders

Pedigree Technologies OneView platform allows you to schedule maintenance based on usage or timing, record maintenance history and activities, and receive automatic alerts when upcoming maintenance is due.

5. Remember HOS Rules

As days get longer, drivers might be tempted to push their hours of service (HOS). The OneView electronic logbook solution, ELD Chrome and Cab-Mate devices, helps ensure drivers maintain HOS compliance. OneView even sends notifications to the dispatcher when drivers are approaching their driving limit.

Did You Know?

About 1/3 of work zones with lane closures occurred primarily at night.
The most likely hours of the day for a lane closure was between 9-11 a.m., while the least likely was 6-7 p.m.
