Grounding Bots for Forward Potential in Energy Industries

Technical Bots are computer communication components utilized for better functioning systems including: subscriptions; technical assistance; account management; claims and files; customer service; and emergency updates. Bots, within the scope of this article, is not a slang term for “robots” or an off-hand reference to policy procedures named for easy reference. Instead, bots is a technology term referencing technical development system components. Bots are engineered to provide technical information functions as well as communication work. Classifications of bot use prevalent include: trader bots, gaming bots and environmental bots. Within Energy Industries environmental bot use and industry communication facilitations such as customer service adds provide cases in point for a standard implementation of bot technology in the future.

Bot applied communication technologies are often combined with other developments to create tailored bot use. Infrared sensor inclusions, computer program integrations, encoders and decoders are some examples of bot technology applied assists where new developments in equipment and system designs benefit from bot useage. Field communications in the Energy sectors, plant management systems, and energy efficiencies in alternative energy use are arenas with needs compatible for bot design support. Usually useful in infrastructure component builds bots are not featured as independent characteristics of value to system or technology users as often as bots give worth to capabilities enhanced or enabled by bot stylized creations.

Chatbots are specifically engineered technical bots paired with AI (Artificial Intelligence) to enhance and service communications systems across various computerized industries. (https://onestopmedia.com.au/chatbot-technology/). Near Field Communications (NFC) requires bot use for encoding/decoding tag transactions and transmission speed relay facilitation. Both types of communication technical bot integration can enhance Energy industries field customer service implementations through applications for emergency response situations, spot purchase and billing transaction satisfactions, and repair validation verifications.

Commercial bots on the market are not the same as “green” bots developed by ingenuity independents. Commercial bots are integrated in framework decisions. “Green” bots are usually farmed for improvements and individual entrepreneurial enterprise. (See examples of commercial bot frameworks: http://blogs.aspect.com/bot-framework-s-comparison/) Plant management use of bots usually requires bot tailoring for industry and company specific intentions and embraces commercial bot level standards. Plant robotics use bots in several design types to utilize best efficiencies and robot functions. These design types include: aggregation, swarm programming, algorithm communication interpretation among other use categories. Plantwide computer regulatory systems (as found in nuclear energy) engage bot integration as crucial to plant development success in areas such as alert and control functions.

Alternative energy systems are incorporating bots for greater energy efficiencies through system function increases. Solar energy is one arena where plans and building schematics show bot use as selling and enhancement incentives for investment. Energy sector research and development programs, including backyard inventors, are reaching for bot inclusions in biofuels and home energy regulatory recycling eco-environments. While bots will not determine the future of energy use, conservation, and production they are important investments and enable quick, translatable and efficient functions to increase energy system values.
