MyAirCoach presents asthma monitoring system

The MyAirCoach project has developed a mobile health device and sensor-based approach connected to a patients mobile phone that measures asthma indicators and collects information to support patients and healthcare professionals. Through monitoring asthma indicators and collect a patients physiological, environmental and behavioral information, it helps patients and healthcare professionals to control the effectiveness of asthma treatment and to prevent severe asthma attacks.

CNet developed a mobile app within the project, that enables to use available indoor and outdoor measurements of asthma indicators to assess the air quality and the personal risk to experience an attack. The analysis of the personal risks can aid patients in their self-management and help to avoid severe asthma attacks.

“The purpose of the app is to make life a little easier for asthmatics in Stockholm,” says Peter Rosengren at CNet.

MONICA Hackathon aiming to enhance experience at the stadium

The second Hackathon of the MONICA project took place on 26th to 28th October 2018 in Leeds. Seven teams from Finland, Germany, Spain and the UK took part in the challenge for designing digital technologies that could help enhance sports fan engagement and experience at the stadium.

The winner Pauline O’Callaghan impressed the jury with a solution for augmented hearing that enables stadium visitors to control their auditory environment during games. Pauline O’Callaghan, a young electronic engineer from Berlin, won €5000 prize money with her winning solution ‘Hearability’.

The solution, an augmented hearing device for spectators with the mission of giving everyone control over their auditory environment, makes events safer and more inclusive to all. O’Callaghan presented several use cases including one that enables turning down the volume of a game when listening to what your friend is saying next to you and turning it up again when finished. The judges, including innovation and technical experts as well as stadium and project representatives, were impressed by the inclusivity aspect and the variety of possible use cases inside the stadium and elsewhere. As part of the prize, Pauline O’Callaghan will now receive six months of business support from MONICA to help her progress her winning prototype.

Grain Cloud awarded with Elmia Innovation award

Grain Cloud was in June nominated for the Elmia Lantbruk Innovation Award. The nominated product Grain Cloud, which has been developed by CNet together with our customer Skandia Elevator, is a smart farming app and cloud service that collects information from the grain management system. It shows, among other things, the transport systems and machines that are running, estimated drying times and keeps track of the inventory in several silos. The app sends alerts if there is a downtime in the drying process, machine failure and in need of service.

In September Grain Cloud was honored with the Elmia Silver award 2018 for its innovation. The Elmia Agricultural Innovation Award seeks to honor innovative agriculture and agricultural production technologies. The selected products receiving the award are considered to provide a contribution to the development of Swedish agriculture and inspiration for the continued development of the industry.

CNet one of finalists in Fortum AI Hackathon

There are four global megatrends that shape the energy sector: climate change and resource efficiency; urbanisation; new technologies and digitalisation; and active customers. These megatrends will bring profound changes not only to how energy is produced and sold to customers, but also to how it is consumed in our daily lives. Fortum is now looking for novel AI-assisted services for customers’ homes and have organised a hackathon challenge AI Comes Home. CNet has been selected as one of the finalists for this hackathon that will take place 7-8 December. We will participate with a intelligent digital assistant that combines both video and voice input to guide consumers in living a more sustainable life.

Monica develops IoT technology for large cultural outdoor events

As part of our innovation area Smart Cities we have started one of the largest European projects on deployment of IoT solutions in large scale applications. Focus  of the Monica project is to deploy wearable IoT technologies together with the latest sound management technologies to improve security, sound disturbance and user experiences at large otu door events such as music concerts, sports games, street festivals and other outdoor shows. CNet is developing the monitoring tools for providing a common operational picture together with a set of different apps for visitors as well as security personnel.

Providing enjoyable and secure outdoor events have become a top priority for modern cities, but at the same time they need to have solutions for reducing noise and annoyance for the surroundings. This challenge will be solved by the Monica project.

CNet delivers first IoT-based post-harvesting system

In cooperation with our customer Skandia Elevetor CNet has developed Grain Cloud, a smart agriculture app and cloud solution that quickly and easily gives an overview of all processes and devices in facilities for drying and storing grain. A main component in such facilities are grain elevators, which are used to transport grain into silos. An essential function is the protection of the grain from the elements and allowing that the grain is stored keeping it suitable for purchase through tracing quality and temperature.

Grain Cloud makes the harvesting more efficient. Calculating and keeping track of drying and transport times, while warning in case of a malfunction. It also facilitates planning and division of labour, enabling a more efficient harvest season and higher yields. Additionally, the app allows keeping track of the inventory, regardless of time and location. It also makes maintenance easier because it tracks the utilisation of all devices and provides reminders when it’s time for service.

CNet has successfully delivered and installed the first system running in several farms.

CNet Blockchain Presentation at IoT Innovations Days

Blockchain technology enables IoT developers to create a new range of innovative applications that allows a set of independent actors to share data and execute business transactions in a trusted environment without having to use proprietary networks and centralised trusted third parties. The Blockchain represent a distributed ledger of transactions that all parties can share and trust. Potential applications range from financial transactions, food traceability to distributed electronic patient records, In the COMPOSITION project we are researching, developing and evaluating blockchain solutions for supply chain management and trusted product traceability to support factories of the future. Blockchains are also used to establish a trusted agent-based market place for automated tendering and negotiation supporting trading.

IoT Enabling of the Lidingö Bridge

We have started rolling out an IoT solution for monitoring of the Lidingö Bridge. This bridge is a railway bridge connecting the island of Lidingö with the city of Stockholm. The bridge is old and needs careful monitoring to ensure the structural integrity of the bridge.

The IoT sensors report vibrations, tensions, temperature etc., which gathered and sent to a cloud solution. The data is reported using the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) format and an open API allows smart phone apps to be created to render the data and process it for advanced analytics
