“Foghorn gets a big win with Saudi Arabia’s Aramco: Foghorn, a startup providing data processing and analytics at the edge for industrial IoT clients, has signed a deal with Aramco, the oil and gas giant. Aramco will use Foghorn’s software for analyzing camera input in its plants and on its rigs. Specifically, Aramco will use it for in-plant safety where the system will look for workers or equipment that are out of compliance with safety codes, and on rigs to detect potential issues and then automatically shut down the process as opposed to waiting for human workers to notice them and manually shut the process down. It will also use computer vision analysis for flare detection to control emissions. This is a pretty big win and adoption of technology for such a large oil and gas provider, so it’s a big deal for Foghorn. (Foghorn)”
