Automating HTML reports of sensor data

The Advanced Technologies and Projects team at Google uses Plotly Enterprise with IPython notebook to automatically generate reports of Plotly graphs. The HTML reports are emailed to company executives, who open the report graphs in Plotly Enterprise for further exploration and pdf download.

Liquid metal batteries for utility-scale storage

Ambri uses Plotly Enterprise with Research Box to develop new chemistries and cell materials for its liquid metal batteries. The business development team uses Plotly with RStudio and Excel to generate client cost saving curves for Ambri commercial deployments.

Plotly is core to our research and development efforts at Ambri, and serves us along the entire spectrum of our data needs from operator input to data analysis and visualization. The Plotly platform enables Ambri engineers and scientists to quickly and easily digest large quantities of data and gain insights into how our batteries and processes are performing on a real time basis. These insights are critical as we work towards Ambri’s mission to create cost-effective, scalable, and safe energy storage technology that will change the future of the electric power industry.

Collaboration and institutional memory for IPython notebook

Dr. Pekka's team at VTT Finland uses IPython notebook and Plotly to share data and build institutional memory within the research group. The creator of IPython sits on Plotly's advisory board and helps steer Plotly's Python client development.
The Plotly Enterprise solution also acts as a corporate memory and it is extremely easy to reuse plots and embed them into any web content.

VTT senior scientist

Quantum computing research

The Center for Quantum Devices at the University of Copenhagen uses Plotly for instrumentation dashboards and ad-hoc graphing inside IPython Notebooks.

Autonomous, underwater robot R&D

Blue Robotics uses Plotly with Excel and Python to graph the motor performance results of their underwater robots.
Using Plotly lets our customers quickly visualize key performance data while allowing them to closely inspect the data as well. That's a huge advantage over static plots for us.
