IBM Uses Satellite Tech for Energy and Utility Industry | Via Satellite


IBM unveiled new technology to reduce power outages by helping energy companies predict where trees and other vegetation may threaten power lines.

IBM worked with Oncor, the largest utility company in Texas and the fifth largest in the U.S., to develop a solution tailored for the energy and utility industry, to help improve operations and provide reliable electric service for millions of customers across the state.

The Weather Company Vegetation Management – Predict is built on IBM PAIRS Geoscope, a technology developed by IBM Research.

The system processes massive, complex geospatial and time-based datasets collected by satellites, drones, aerial flights, millions of Internet of Things (IOT) sensors, and weather models.
