IoTBridge monitors Vuonjokk bridge in North Sweden

IoTBridge has acquired its first project, a railway bridge in the very north of Sweden. The bridge will be equipped with two accelerometers and two strain gauge sensors during summer.

Due to deformations in the embankment, the sagging of the rail has caused abrupt changes in the stiffness, creating a bump for the train to pass over when entering the bridge. As a rehabilitation action, concrete foundation slabs have been installed adjacent to the abutments in the transition zones in order to spread the change in stiffness over larger distances The collected data is transferred to the IoTBridge cloud and analysed. The main objective of the measurements is to verify the efficiency of the rehabilitation measure.

IoTBridge publishes new web site

Cnets subsidiary IoTBridge launched today their new web site, www.iotbridge.se. IoTBridge is focused on developing and marketing products and services for Bridge Health Monitoring using IoT and AI technologies.


IoTBridges Edge Gateway offers a reliable and flexible monitoring solution for bridges. It supports both wireless sensors and wired sensors. This greatly reduces the deployment cost of the sensor system. The Bridge Edge Gateway can intelligently make local computations depending on the application needs. Measurements are transferred to the IoTBridge Cloud over standard mobile connections not requiring any expensive proprietary communication solutions.

CNet creates spin-off IoTBridge

We have now started a new spin-off company, IoTBridge, to commercialise results from our innovation projects Monica, IoTBridge and InfraSweden2030.

IoTBridge is focused on developing and marketing structural health monitoring of bridges using IoT – Internet of Things and AI technologies according to Peter Rosengren CEO for CNet.

IoTBridge has been founded by CNet and two world-leading researchers and bridge experts from the Department of Structural Engineering and Bridges at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, Professor Raid Kharoumi and Associate Professor John Leander. IoTBridge will combine CNets IoT and cloud technologies with structural engineering algorithms for damage detection and life time assessment.

IoT for next generation infrastructure asset management

We are using Internet of Things to monitor the health status of old bridge in our new project “Smart assessment, surveillance and management of critical bridges”. The old Lidingö Bridge will be equipped with IoT sensors that reports about various damages on the bridge and how it reacts to vibrations and weather conditions. The data is received, processed and analysed in a cloud solution delivered by CNet. The project is part of a new programme, InfraSweden 2030, for the future infrastructure in Sweden. The project is carried out with KTH, SICS and Uppsala University.

CNet exhibits IoT Infrastructure Asset Management Solutions

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.
