Did you know that in Helsingborg, tiny sensors on objects all around us are tracking everything from air and water temperature to the position of bicycles?
They also monitor the indoor climate of schools and sports facilities, let trees order water when they need it, and can tell waste services when your recycling bin is full and ready to be collected.
In the smart city, these inexpensive and energy-efficient long range (LoRa) sensors send information and receive instructions through a wireless network called the Open City Hub. Practically anything can be connected – if it makes life in the smart city safer, more efficient, more convenient, or just more fun.
The Open City Hub is basically connectivity as a service, open to anyone using LoRa sensors, and includes high security with multiple-level encryption to keep the information safe. So, how would you like to use it to improve daily life?
Get help with your ideas and receive updates as the network and applications continue to grow at the City Hub Alliance site. Or you can watch a short movie or read this white paper to learn more about how LoRa sensors and the Internet of Things work.
