The team of ISR Laboratory CrazyLoc wins the 1 prize at Aramco Upstream Solutions Technathon 2019

The team of ISR Laboratory CrazyLoc wins the 1 prize at Aramco Upstream Solutions Technathon 2019 with price of 300 kRub. There were very challenging tasks for tracks AI, IoT, and Swarm of Drones. About 25 teams from different Universities (MSU, Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, Skoltech, etc.) participated in the challenge. 

They developed the network of smart seismic nodes to determine the location and size of possible oil and gas reservoirs​ based on acoustic survey. Winner team members are:

Alexey Fedoseev (MS2, Space and Engineering Systems)
Juan Heredia (MS2, Space and Engineering Systems)
Igor Usachev (MS2, Advanced  Manufacturing Technologies, student of Robotics course)


1st place at the Aramco Upstream Solutions Technathon 2019 (prize of 300 kRub, 25 teams participated), Team CrazyLoc: Juan Heredia, Aleksei Fedoseev, Igor Usachev, technology: Design of a Smart Seismic Node, Skoltech, Moscow 13-15.

The team has developed acoustic sensor network with the internal preprocessing based on ESP32 with the ESP-NOW Wi-FI communication protocol. The localization of the sound source was analyzed on the server using LSM method. The developed technology accurately detected all of 3 sources at the random position.

The application of the smart seismic node in oil and gas industry is acoustic survey to determine the location and size of possible oil and gas reservoirs. Shock waves are produced by vibrators installed on the large trucks. Traditional seismic acquisition employs wired system of geophones to record the seismic waves bouncing back. Using wired system makes the deployment and data acquisition process challenging. Wireless smart seismic node potentially can considerably reduce the time of the deployment, perform the quality control, and achieve energy-efficient solution.
