Additional Projects

Deployed at one of the world’s largest retailers, Bright Wolf enabled monitoring and remote control of cold chain transportation and refrigeration assets inside distribution centers and on the road.

Conditions such as temperatures, modes, set points, fuel levels, door openings, engine hours, alarms, location, gate arrival time, and gate departure time can be monitored and recorded. In addition, full two-way control allows turning units on or off, changing set points, changing modes, and the ability to perform diagnostics. While in transit, the fleet of refrigerated trailers are remotely monitored and controlled for an end to end digital chain-of-custody.

Global fleet management & intelligent monitoring for a water treatment and waste management enterprise.

Providing safe and reliable sources of drinking water to communities worldwide is no easy task. Monitoring and managing a wide array of equipment operating in diverse environments requires a unified edge development platform and remote device management capabilities.

Real-time fluid loop and filtration monitoring for a Fortune 500 industrial fluid management leader.

Remote monitoring requires a real-time window of critical measurements revealing the current overall health of both filters and fluid. Predictive maintenance is made possible by detecting early warning signs through the use of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence. Configurable set points with flexible notifications flag pending issues, and secure mobile applications empower operators on the go. The solution also enables global inventory management and asset tracking.  

Bright Wolf helps a cooling system vendor keep their industrial customers’ operations running safely without chemicals.

When your customers need your systems to “just work” so they can run their own manufacturing, energy production, and other industrial operations, reliability is paramount to success. Remote monitoring, fleet management, and integration with CRM and ERP systems enable them to keep their customers cool and safe from bacteria and corrosion in thousands of installations without the use of toxic chemicals.
