CNet launches GoEasy mobile IoT sensing gateway

The first version of the GoEasy mobile IoT sensing gateway is now available. It is equipped with a Galileo-receiver, an air quality sensor, a sound level sensor and a communication chip.

The gateway is designed to be mounted on bicycles and electrical scooters. The sensors in this gateway continuously measure the NO2 level and the sound level. The measurements are transmitted using NB-IoT (Narrow-band IoT) to the GoEasy cloud. The Galileo chip gives the precise position where the measurements are taken while the vehicles are moving. The GoEasy gateway run on battery or can be powered through a USB Connection to an electrical bike or scooter battery. When a sufficient number of vehicles are collecting data in the city, GoEasy will be able to create a complete air and sound pollution map in realtime over the city. This data will form the basis for development of a new generation services for citizens.

The first service is AsthmaWatch, which will help and guide asthmatic people to avoiding polluted areas in the city. A first test of the GoEasy gateway will start during May in the cities of Copenhagen and Stockholm.

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.

For people with asthma, their inhaler plays a central role in managing the condition. These simple drug delivery devices have been used for decades to deliver medication to the lungs. Regular treatment with inhaled controller medication helps to keep asthma under control and, for some patients, ‘rescue’ or relief medication can limit the impact of an exacerbation (or ‘asthma attack’). The myAirCoach consortium, where CNet is a member, has been working to extend the utility of inhalers by developing adaptors to make inhalers smarter to improve outcomes for patients. Companies, hospitals and universities – in collaboration with patients – have been working to improve inhalers so that we can get as much information as possible about how the patient uses their device and information about the state of the lungs and the immediate environment.
