outcomes with safety monitoring and automated leak monitoring, detection of fire, smoke, and PPE, while strengthening security through proactive activity monitoring. Osperity’s platform delivers instant awareness of situations at remote and distributed upstream, midstream, and downstream locations, either on-demand or in the case of an event. We transfer video and data from mostly remote geographical locations over an efficient low-bandwidth LTE network. Thanks to analytics on the visual sensors at the edge, we can cut down on data consumption. Analytics in the cloud minimize false positives and provide oil and gas companies with timely accurate information at all times.

To significantly reduce false positives, Osperity uses a two-stage process where video analytics are used to detect movement, and images from the motion event are then analyzed with an algorithm to confirm the presence of a vehicle, person or other specified anomalies. This process greatly reduces the false alerts in outdoor environments. Exception-based alerts are then sent to users that have subscribed to these types of events. As such, users get alerts that are accurate and actionable. Energy companies both big and small are realizing the necessity of emergent technology to stay relevant and
