HP and Shell Collaboration
HP and Shell are collaborating to develop a wireless sensing system to acquire extremely high-resolution seismic data on land. HP and Shell will use their complementary knowledge and experience to produce a groundbreaking solution that can sense, collect and store geophysical data.
The new system reflects the breadth of HP’s portfolio. It will be delivered by HP Enterprise Services and includes a recent breakthrough in high-performance sensing technology from HP Labs – the company’s central research arm – and the company’s Imaging and Printing Group. Additionally, the system uses HP ProCurve networking products along with HP storage, computation and software products.
The sensing technology and this strategic relationship with Shell are cornerstones in HP’s blueprint for an information ecosystem that empowers people to make better, faster decisions to improve safety, security and environmental sustainability while transforming business economics. Sensing solutions are positioned to provide a new level of awareness through a network of sensors, data storage, and analysis tools that monitor the environment, assets, and health and safety.
