Cortex Auto is our industry-leading rig telemetry, analytics and autonomous drilling package, featuring live video feed and systems monitoring of important rig status, safety, productivity and ground condition data. Cortex Auto allows fully remote or off-site rig control, with potential to operate from anywhere in the world.
SAFETY: Real time rig monitoring including warning and alarm systems, remote expert review, tech technology and incident reporting.
PRODUCTIVITY: Instant-by-instant overview of all aspects of the drill rig and drill hole sequence, tracking more than 100 direct and derived variables into a real-time digital model of the drill rig.
ASSET HEALTH: Monitor for control and reporting of pre-starts, service intervals and component life-cycles. Integration into customer preventative maintenance programs.
VISIBILITY: Local high-density database on rig, synchronises to remote servers through proprietary Cortex communications protocols.
ADAPTIVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI): Drilling optimised by machine learning based on ‘best driller’ performance. Productivity and asset health improved through automated best-practice operation of the drill rig.
AUTONOMOUS DRILLING: Parking the rig on the drill pad, setting up of the control terminal and initiating the control sequence. Precision control via Cortex’s Remote Terminal. Sequenced operation for rig setup pack-up, rod loading, or automatic engine management, initiated by single button press. Automation can be coordinated across the entire operating rig fleet.
