PUBLIC SPACE MANAGEMENT
Locating available parking
Knowing the occupancy level of parking lots and garages is extremely useful to parking facilityoperators - empty spaces mean no revenue. Optimizing parking facilities also helps reduce air pollution as drivers can find a vacant space in a moment, and guarantees available spots during big events and peak traffic times. Tracking is done remotely and automatically for 24/7 monitoring.
Improving food safety
Food temperature monitoring is crucial for facilities that
provide meals for school children or patients. IoT solutions
can help ensure food safety procedures are observed by
accurately monitoring the temperature of food storage
facilities. The temperature monitoring device sends an
alert in the event of abnormal temperature levels, so staff
can act in real time to restore the correct temperature,
avoiding microbial contamination and food waste.
Improved bike sharing services
Bike sharing is becoming extremely popular in cities to
tackle the challenges of climate change and offer residents
an alternative way to commute.
With timely updates on the location of bikes sent through
the Sigfox public IoT network, cities and bike-sharing
companies can operate services more efficiently by
matching demand to supply, according to areas where
bikes are needed. This not only helps to curb irresponsible
behavior such as illegal parking and bike hogging, it also
reduces problems of theft and vandalism.
Monitoring user satisfaction
User feedback is essential to improve public services and increase satisfaction. It’s even better when you can get that feedback in real time immediately after the experience.
Install a small, customizable, connected dashboard or button to collect user feedback effortlessly, using color codes to trigger instant responses as guests leave public service buildings. The data is then available in the cloud for visualization and real-time satisfaction insights. Alerts based on specific thresholds or results can also be triggered for a faster response.
Improved data collection for
better air quality monitoring
Sigfox-enabled sensors are easy to install and so cheap to run that an entire city can be covered, enabling dozens of metrics to be tracked such as humidity, temperature, air quality and more. Some cities have installed sensors on moving locations such as trams and buses to collect even more data throughout the day.
With increased availability of data, it’s easy to build interactive, real-time mapping of air pollution and improve pollution prediction through Machine Learning.
Collect consumption data
Put an end to manual on-site meter readings and dataprocessing of water, gas and electricity consumption. You can now monitor and optimize your remote assets in realtime, detecting issues such as leaks and breakdowns. Service companies can also automate billing and remotely activate and deactivate services. IoT-enabled meters can transmit data immediately over the Sigfox public network with no pairing or configuration required and no need to replace or recharge batteries for years.
Remote monitoring of water
IoT sensors provide crucial data on important water infrastructure conditions to help prevent malfunctions and flooding, as well as increase maintenance crew efficiency. Monitoring the level, pressure, turbidity, Ph, salinity, ORP and flow of water remotely means you can prevent overflows, track drinking water supply and monitor waste water network and treatment operations.
Monitoring and maintaining
street lighting networks
Plan maintenance operations by detecting overheating, power supply shortage and broken bulbs with IoT-enabled sensors. Deploy workers only when necessary instead of carrying out routine maintenance checks. Install IoT-enabled light intensity sensors to remotely control light intensity for energy savings.
