M2M, acronym for “Machine-to-Machine”, is the communication constructed between devices, mobile vehicles and workers: they will be able to exchange infinite amounts of information and carry out complex operations without any need of human intervention.
M2M is an automation technology allowing relevant strategic advantages and guaranteeing outstanding improvement for the business implementing it. This technology can be exploited in many industrial fields, which is what Aton proposes with its solutions.
In particular, in the Energy&Utilities sector, by means of its geo-localization and telemetry solutions, as well as the use of RFId technology, Aton offers its customers new possibilities to innovate and develop their businesses.
Geo-localization - .onGeo
Geo-localization solutions have currently become an indispensable tool for Companies basing their business on product & service sales by means of mobile resources distributed over the territory.
Aton’s localization solutions allow you to know mobile units positioning at any time. Moreover, it is possible to control whether the vehicle is still, if its engine is on, if it is unloading the product, how much product it transports and if it is unloading it at one of our customers’ or not.
In case of unloading at a place not corresponding to one of your customers’, the system immediately shows the anomaly, allowing the operator at your premises to control whether it is a new customer, a fraud attempt, etc.
In case it should be a new customer, it is possible to register data immediately and associate them to a position by means of geographical coordinates with distance tolerance from the registered coordinates: it may in fact occur that the place where the product is unloaded should not coincide with the exact position of the street No. in our data, as tanks may be located far away from the buildings they supply the product to.
.onGeo implies the possibility of creating notifications by means of various formats (mail, sms, etc.) to be warned at any time about a certain event under monitoring, and of consulting the progress of a given parameter both on geographical map or graphic report.

- Optimizing product distribution (trips, vehicles loading,..);
- Reducing distribution costs.
Real-time Data Gathered from over 1,000 Distributed Customers
Aton’s telemetry solutions use state-of-the-art technologies. They are based on M2M (machine-to-machine) applications which allow remote coordination of huge amounts of reading devices - specifically, tank meter readings and tank level-detector readings -.
The devices are distributed over the territory and connected by means of point-to-point radio relay stations as well as via data mobile network, thanks to Aton’s extended partnerships with the most significant telephone carriers.
All the information gathered and instructions sent to on-the-field devices (it is, in fact, feasible to send commands to a remote device) are collected and centrally managed by specialized data centres and then cloud distributed via web, round the clock, 365 days a year.
