Patent
Itron Inc. | Date: 2011-06-24

Radio messages may be transmitted by endpoints delivering utility consumption data. A portable unit may traverse a route among the endpoints and obtain the consumption data. If the endpoints are sufficiently grouped, communication between the portable unit and a plurality of endpoints may be possible in a same power cycle to a radio of the portable unit while the portable unit is at a single location. In a two-way communication environment, the portable unit may send commands to a plurality of endpoints during a single power cycle, which may result in responses from the plurality of endpoints during the same power cycle. Such communications may be performed with endpoints that are ahead of a current endpoint on the route being traversed, and may constitute read-ahead data. Read-ahead data reduces power cycles to the radio, because when the portable unit reaches an endpoint on the route whose data has previously been read, a power cycle is not required.


Patent
Itron Inc. | Date: 2011-06-24

Following an explosion, fire, flood, water damage, or other event, consumption data of utility resources such as gas and water may be used to determine a cause of the event. For example, an interrogation may be used to read data logging data from a data collection device. The data logging data may include a record of consumption data for a resource spanning a time of an event. The data logging data may be analyzed to determine whether a utility providing the resource was responsible for the event.


Patent
Itron Inc. | Date: 2011-06-24

Radio messages delivering utility consumption data may be transmitted by endpoints. Each endpoint may contain a meter, such as an electric, natural gas and/or water meter. A portable unit (such as, for example, a handheld meter reading unit) may traverse a route among the endpoints and obtain the consumption data. Endpoints may send messages, periodically and/or in response to a command. Such messages may provide flags or other data indicating a condition of the endpoint. The flags or other data may be interpreted by computer code or logic within the portable unit to determine the condition of the endpoint, if a conditional command is indicated, and if so, which conditional command. Having selected an appropriate conditional or reflex command, the portable unit may transmit the conditional command to the endpoint and record data contained in a reply.


Patent
Itron Inc. | Date: 2011-06-22

In a distributed meter data management (MDM) system of a smart grid, a network computing device, such as a network router deployed in the field, may receive data from one or more utility meters, sensors, control devices, or other utility data collection devices that are communicatively coupled to the network computing device. The network computing device may process the data received from the utility data collection devices to generate processed data usable by a consumer. The network computing device may also send data to and/or receive data from a centralized control system, MDM system, and/or smart grid analytic applications at a utility central office. The network computing device may then provide the processed data directly to the consumer, with or without first sending the data to a centralized MDM system of the utility.


Patent
Itron Inc. | Date: 2011-09-23

Consumption data of utility resources such as gas and water may be used to detect conditions that, left unchecked, may lead to a natural gas explosion, flood, or other event. A data collection device may be configured to monitor consumption of a resource through a utility meter at a location in substantially real time. The data collection device may detect abnormal consumption of the resource at the location, and transmit an alert indicating the abnormal consumption of the resource to a remote computing device. The data collection device may additionally initiate a mitigating action to prevent an event based on the abnormal resource consumption.
