Vedanta collaborates with IIT Madras incubated start-up for AI based safety technologies.
Vedanta, India’s leading producer of metals and oil & gas, has teamed up with Detect Technologies, an IIT Madras incubated start-up which is a winner of the Vedanta Spark program, to implement AI based safety incident detection by deploying T-Pulse® HSSE Monitoring System across all Vedanta business units.
The collaboration is in line with Vedanta Group’s commitment to Zero Harm by implementing AI enabled safety monitoring of workplaces which is a key initiative in its digital transformation roadmap.
Vedanta Group CEO Sunil Duggal said: “This partnership will further augment Vedanta’s capabilities on technology led safety enablement. Detect Technologies’ AI and computer vision solutions will help us enhance our digital safety monitoring across all business units.”
The solution will utilize and detect Vedanta’s infrastructure for relaying and analyzing feeds and dashboard reporting. The module will be implemented to identify Unsafe Acts & Conditions under various categories such as Job Safety/ Hazard Communication, Work at Height, Traffic Interference & Vehicle Safety etc.
T-Pulse® offers centralized and scalable technology stack designed for plug and play deployment. Engineered for risk minimization and mitigation through actionable insights, T-Pulse® has witnessed proliferated deployment across major caution intensive workplaces such as construction, petrochemicals, logistics, power, metals, mining, pharmaceuticals, and fabrication yard. In deployment across Vedanta facilities, it has been instrumental in augmenting compliance by enabling effective responses in environments ranging from onshore drilling to Zinc manufacturing.
Detect Technologies is an IIT Madras incubated start-up and the winner of Vedanta SPARK 1.O initiative. It is a leading Industrial AI enterprise, offering SaaS based solutions primed at re-engineering and automating industrial processes to achieve 100% safety compliance and zero downtime of assets.
Vedanta Spark is a global corporate innovation, accelerator and ventures program which aims to enable start-ups that leverage transformative and sustainable technologies to create large-scale impact in partnership with group companies of Vedanta. Last month, Vedanta rolled out the SPARK 2.O accelerator program for start-ups with a focus on driving sustainable digital transformation in the natural resources sector.
