Welcome to Aridea Solutions
Aridea Solutions is a company composed of engineers, software developers and executives with decades of experience in information technology all over the world. Through their experience in mining, oil & gas, healthcare, and other industries, they saw the exciting rise of new technologies that could interconnect things with people and information systems. With these observations, they set forth to bring the new technologies to market.
What is the Internet of Things?
These emerging new technologies are collectively referred to as the Internet of Things or IoT and at a fundamental level, IoT is simply about making things smart. From smartphones, smart cars, and smart homes to smart power grids and smart cities, IoT’s scale can be global and enormous, or it can fit in the palm of your hand. The concept is simply to connect things to the internet and use the algorithmic power of information systems to improve efficiencies and drive innovation.
The team at Aridea Solutions is passionate about IoT. Founded in 2014, they surveyed the landscape and found a blind spot in the market. Many companies in IoT industries are focused on a personal scale or urban environments. On the personal scale, fitness trackers, shoes with microchips, smart watches and other wearable technologies connect people as things to the Internet and track various health and activity data. In the urban environments, international corporations are trying to make smart cars, smart cities, and smart power grids.
But the blind spot in IoT innovation is even larger than people or cities, both in scope and market potential. That blind spot is the Earth itself. And the Earth can become smart through environmental monitoring.
With environmental monitoring, Aridea Solutions’ team will connect human assets and information systems directly to on-the-ground, real-time data from things like water, air and weather for industries and institutions that are required to monitor their environmental impact.
Real-time environmental monitoring will divert the man hours used for compliance measurement to more productive tasks. This provides real-world savings on compliance cost, improve data accuracy and spurs innovation.
The Terralytix Platform
To accomplish their goals, the Aridea Solutions team developed the Terralytix Platform, a suite of hardware and software products that allows operators and executives the ability to monitor and control remote and mobile assets from any internet connection.
The core on-the-ground technologies behind the Terralytix Platform is the Terralytix Edge and the Terralytix Transport. The two systems connect sensors and remote automation the Internet. Once on the internet, the data connects to information systems for alerting or automation and can be viewed on the Terralytix Portal from a single pane of glass.
Aridea Solutions has also developed Terralytix devices for specific market applications, such as the Terralytix Edge Buoy for water quality monitoring and the Terralytix AST Cap for monitoring chemicals in aboveground storage tanks.
