The Ignition Firebrand Awards recognize system integrators and industrial organizations that create innovative industry solutions.
Long Beach, CA – SCS Engineers and Corso Systems jointly received a 2019 Firebrand Award today at the annual Ignition Community Conference. The firms won recognition for their next-generation visualization and control system for landfills and pipelines.
The pilot project took place at the San Timoteo Landfill in San Bernardino County, California. The County needed a complete landfill enterprise solution easily accessible online and mobile-enabled. SCS and Corso use SCS’s Remote Monitoring and Control, or SCS RMC® to upgrade and provide a flexible, scalable platform integrated with Ignition 8 and Ignition Perspective. The next-generation options include 3D imaging from drones and virtual reality (VR). SCS uses aerial data from their drones to compose topographic mapping, 2D images, 3D renderings, GIS, thermal, near-infrared (NIR), and methane leak detection for waste facilities.
After flying the San Timoteo Landfill, uploading the imagery, and mapping the facility, they embed both the 2D images and 3D rendering into Perspective. The team can take those rendered images and apply them into a Microsoft HoloLens VR headset as well, which allows decision-makers at San Bernardino County to “walk the site” from their offices. Now, landfill executives and operators can view their sites remotely from any device, anywhere. Other benefits include:
The firms and SCS RMC® have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback. SCS RMC® is now rolling out similar solutions at more landfills. A video on the 2019 ICC Award website explains how the system works and what landfill owners and operators can expect.
