IRIS will work by integrating real-time data from the BPCLs 18000 retail outlets, 25000 tank trucks, and other physical locations. It will offer a consolidated view of all of BPCL's operations. The solution will also enable more than 100000 BPCL workforce across the country to make faster and accurate decisions which even includes preventive maintenance.

Leveraging Artificial Intelligence, Analytics, and Machine Learning technologies, the IRIS platform is expected to trigger automated alerts and actions, such as rapid response to equipment failures and alarms on hazardous situations. The solution will accelerate sales at fuel retail outlets by minimizing infrastructure downtime and ensure consistent fuel quality, notes the announcement.

The new platform will also accept more than three million inputs per second from the automated sensors, IoT, and camera devices deployed at all key locations. The sensors will track performance based on parameters such as safety, equipment health, fuel stock, compliance, and increased asset uptimes. 

The solution will also get support from the call centers in Chennai and Noida.
