STARKVILLE — Camgian Microsystems has closed on a contract with FCC Environmental and Gateway Tire to deliver a new enterprise machine-to-machine (M2M) solution that supports centrally managed tracking, forecasting, collection and accounting of used oil materials generated across disparate automotive retail locations.
The solution, built on Camgian’s Quantus Sensor Fusion Engine, comprises low-power, cellular based sensors that communicate on-site fluid inventory and associated data analytics from 56 Gateway locations across seven states. Information collected from the sites is stored and aggregated in a cloud-based software application, which supports various analytical, visualization and reporting functions. These include predictive analytics that enable forecasting of servicing requirements; advanced data visualization dashboards for improved operational understanding; and reporting tools that provide real-time servicing alerts and status messages to desktop and mobile devices.
“This program demonstrates the power of our Quantus technology and its ability to cost effectively deliver M2M solutions in new markets,” said Gary Butler, chairman and CEO of Camgian Microsystems. “With Quantus’ integrated sensing, communications, and analytics technology, we can deliver solutions that add tremendous value in terms of operational efficiency and understanding. ”
FCC will utilize the Quantus solution to drive down operational cost and improve customer service capabilities. This includes the ability to improve route planning through better understanding of Gateway’s serving requirements provided by Quantus. Quantus sensing applications will also support spill protection by providing alarms based on specified detection thresholds. Quantus will provide Gateway with an enterprise view for all of their retail sites along with history of all used oil transactions. The benefits to Gateway include maximizing revenue from their used oil supply through increased visibility, theft prevention, and streamlining reporting and transactions.
“At Gateway, we are very excited to finally have this kind of cutting edge technology to help us maximize our profits in the waste oil market,” said Alex Yelton, program manager at Gateway Tire.
