Helsingborg City, together with Infracontrol, provider to StadshubbsAlliansen, has conducted a pilot project providing life-saving equipment with IoT devices that can detect if any part of the equipment is missing.
Connected items, Internet of Things, has long been tied to the need for costly power and communication. But with the new, low-power and wireless technology LPWAN (Low Load Wide Area Network, also known as LoRa), it is possible to use power-efficient and cost-effective sensors in completely new applications. Several of the members of the Infracontrol Community, including Helsingborg and Norrköping, now take advantage of the new technology to detect errors before they can solve problems.
In Helsingborg City, one of the pilot projects has been implemented. Read more here: We provide life-saving equipment with IoT devices that can detect if any part of the equipment is missing. The alerts are sent via our LoRa network to InfracontrolOnline, which then ensures that the information reaches the correct person for action. We are seeing great opportunities with the new technology for detecting faults and shortcomings in the city’s infrastructure.
