We will participate and exhibit the results of our R&D project IoTBridge at the Eureka Innovation Week in Stockholm 26-27 April. Roads and bridges are critical infrastructures in a city. Repairs and maintenance work immediately effects the traffic situation. Manual inspections of road and bridge conditions are costly. These problems are tackled by the IoTBridge consortium in which CNet is a part. We are combining different types of sensors embedded into wireless sensor networks which exchange information utilising cloud technologies. Data on the use of bridges and status of various parts is analysed to optimise inspection intervals and maintenance to reduce the costs for upkeep and ensure safety. A first installation of the system is done at the new Årsta Bridge, a railway bridge in Stockholm. This is part of our innovation activitities targeting Smart Cities and Infrastructure Management.
CNet today participated and made a presentation at an international M2M for Smart Cities Workshop in Copenhagen. Sustainable urban development is recognised as a key challenge at a global level. The ‘Smart Cities’ model provides opportunities and challenges for cooperation on issues related to areas of energy, water, health, transport, environment, information and communication technologies.
During the workshop CNet presented the Almanac project and our work on how to integrate IoT Data and Business Data to achieve real business process improvements of the city operations. We are also researching and developing a federated storage architecture for big data processing and advanced resource and service catalogue functions to support semantic interoperability of heterogeneous resources, devices, and services.
