Vision™ is an open edge-to-cloud operating system that allows multiple different stakeholders to collaborate on Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions. Vision™ reduces the complexity, costs, and time to deliver a complete system by providing common, pre-integrated components that simplify the deployment of edge apps and routing of real time data from the edge to cloud-based data services.
The Vision™ Edge Operating System (O/S) resides on intelligent edge devices (such as Morpheus) and is comprised of Linux, Docker, and a system supervisor. Vision™ Edge O/S interacts with the Vision™ Device Manager to:
The Vision™ Device Manager is a visual, cloud-based tool that gives users the ability to interact with remotely deployed devices running Vision™ Edge O/S.
Built into Vision™ Cloud, Vision™ Data Router allows users to route data pushed from edge apps to pre-integrated data services in real time. Developers can configure their own data services that are published for internal use. You are in control of your data. Route data to multiple services and remove access to data whenever you want.
Each user has access to a private app store within Vision™ Cloud that is only accessible to your company. This means that internal developers can build highly valuable edge apps that are published in a controlled manner to internal users and devices. If you want to monetize these edge apps, they can be published to the public app store. The developer that publishes the apps is able to set the monthly per device price that the customer is charged. Vision™ keeps track of all installations and manages both the billing to the customer and the payment to the developer.
The Vision™ Edge App Builder is a set of tools within Vision™ Field that helps the user interact with a device locally in development mode to load and manipulate applications. We provide you sample applications written in C/C++ and Python that are built in Docker containers that run as part of the Vision™ Edge O/S.
The Vision™ Object Registry is a cloud-based community driven database of standardized object types in Vision™ Cloud, each containing a set of resources that define the data that is represented.
These objects can be used by the edge apps to gather and transmit data in real time in a consistent manner. Cloud based monitoring services receive this data and can access the object types in the registry to programmatically learn about new devices and how to store their data.
The Vision™ IoT Solution for Oil & Gas is inherently secure through a number of methods:
