Deployment of 20,000 smart building IoT sensors using LoRaWAN

Beyond Eyes, a brand initiated by Heijmans N.V., a major Dutch construction-services business, with CSU Cleaning Services BV, deployed over 20,000 LoRaWAN-connected IoT sensors for Heijmans’ clients in the Netherlands, as part of their innovative Smart Building concept. Beyond Eyes uses wireless sensors from CLICKEY to collect anonymous data on a building’s utilization, occupation, usage, and indoor environment. Sensors are then connected through the private LoRaWAN® IoT network managed on Actility’s ThingPark® Enterprise IoT platform, where data is aggregated and then forwarded to Microsoft Azure IoT Hub using using ThingPark Enterprise Azure connector.

TRX Systems was awarded funding through the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program (PSIAP) to test, validate and harden the TRX NEON Personnel Tracker solution to support wide-scale public safety deployment. TRX is partnering with the Arlington County Fire Department (ACFD) to conduct extended testing during which the TRX 3D location technology will be used by all personnel at Station 5, serving Pentagon City and Crystal City, to validate usability and performance and to better align the solution with first responder needs.

Open-source wireless GPS/ GNSS hardware

Septentrio has announced the opensource resources for their GPS/ GNSS module receivers: mosaicTM wireless orsimply mowi. It combines the Septentrio mosaic-X5 or mosaic-H module receiver with a dual-mode Bluetooth and integrated Wi-Fi from the ESP32- WRover programmable module by Espressif Systems. It is an addition to the already existing mosaicHAT board, designed on the Raspberry Pi platform. The mowi project facilitates GNSS positioning for robotic and autonomous devices, on a hardware level.

Development of fully autonomous multi-purpose vehicle

Oxbotica and AppliedEV have announced a collaboration to develop a fully autonomous, multipurpose electric vehicle capable of being deployed in a wide range of environments for a variety of commercial applications. The project will see Oxbotica integrate its autonomous vehicle software with AppliedEV’s programmable and configurable EV platform. The vehicle will be driverless, marking a huge step on the journey towards commercial autonomy.
