Product Journey Map
Pollution-Recognizing AI (Ove-C)
Ove Cam uses "Polarized Light + RGB" technology that analyzes multifocal images. The cameras installed in areas with high risks of oil spills and cameras mounted on robots "take images from different angles and combines those multifocal images" to come up with the "final oil spill image," which leads to a high recognition rate. In water surface's case, sun glitters occur due to "waves, tides, and wind" to mar the image, unlike on land surfaces. For that, Sheco uses its "Polarization Solution" based on machine vision polarization cameras for a more improved oil recognition rate. Using either RGB data in environments without sunlight (e.g., nighttime, rainy days) or polarization data in sun-glitter environments, the AI boasts a very high recognition rate in all kinds of environments. The traditional oil spill detectors are all imported products with a high price range, which did not contribute to the democratization of the local market. However, using Sheco's pollution-recognizing AI, Ove Cam is easy to implement in "sea and water zone facilities with high oil spill risks," with an excellent cost efficiency and performance on par with the other established products. Ove Cam is prepared to deal with accidents efficiently by employing drones to overcome the limitations to maritime surveillance in terms of time, cost, environment, human resources, etc.
Ground Control System (GCS) - Dashboard Integration
"Ground Control System" (GCS in short) enables easier control with slam-based mapping. Using robots with the built-in GPS, it can remove pollution from specific spots using the touchscreen dashboard, as well as clean up designated areas repeatedly and periodically with Point to Point (P2P) mode. In addition to that, the dashboard also shows robot data (e.g., battery remaining, pollution loaded, damaged and malfunctioning parts, and water-processing chemicals loaded) and operation data (e.g., water quality measurement, amount of fresh water in the environment, water temperature, and management information) in real time, and the collected data can be managed and viewed via the server.
Smart Water Business (SWB) System
Integrating ‘robots, self-operation, data servers, dashboard, and other features’, the SWB System runs robots to manage water resources 24/7 as well as managing and displaying the data collected. We manage "water resource improvement level, characteristics of each specific local environment and pollution, and social value created" before and after implementation, and publish annual reports on "water quality ESG operation." In the data server and dashboard, it is also possible to link outside IoT devices(drones, ships, etc.) to integrate and manage demanded data on single server as well as unify for management via "automatic operation" technology applied onto other equipment as necessary. The solution can be used in places needing mass smartification for "water resource management and ESG data collection" such as "smart city, harbor, grid."
Sheco Co., Ltd. is building a diverse business portfolio using environmental mobility.
Water resource management systems can be configured using different models depending on different water zone environments, facility characteristics, and cleanup goals.
