Data utvecklar Öresundskraft

För att erbjuda relevanta tjänster hanterar Öresundskraft stora mängder av både strukturerad och ostrukturerad data. Just nu utvecklar energibolaget tillsammans med Microsoft en plattform för all hantering och arbetar utifrån begreppet data som infrastruktur.

Sensatives kommentar: En spännande evolution pågår inom vår kund Öresundskraft. Ett moderniseringsarbete där man blir mer och mer data-drivna. Vår partner Atea och Öresundskraft jobbar tillsammans för att utveckla verksamheten och ta fram en helt ny och framtidssäker IT arkitektur. Till detta levererar Sensative Yggio som IoT-integrationslösning vilket passar väl in i den nya arkitekturen.

Trialing OSCORE for end-to-end IoT security in resource-constrained devices | u-blox

The new lightweight security protocol to secure CoAP messages could well become an industry standard. We implemented it in a smart city project.

New security technologies tested in a Smart City project, where, among others, U-blox and Sensative co-operates. In this blog post U-blox describes the OSCORE protocol in more detail.

In the system drawing below, there is a cloud service mentioned. That is where the U-blox part of the system connects to our platform Yggio, providing full end-to-end encryption from device to cloud service.

The 5 Layers of the Smart City

Today many cities find themselves unable to truly harness the potential of the smart city technologies available. In order to maintain the orientation and focus on a practical way to make cities smarter it can help to focus on five distinct layers of the smart city that need to be understood and managed.

Sensative take:

Cities often start with a vertical use case, for instance, building systems for smart lighting. This could be considered “easier” since it is controlled by one internal department and you could let one supplier deliver all HW and SW for an immediate effect. However, this is not necessarily the best approach to build a foundation for a Smart City. It just solves one of the thousands of imaginable use cases in a city.

The city should start with a Smart Architecture like the one discussed in this article. Then it becomes much clearer what requirements to put on the different suppliers. This architecture must be open, based on standards, and horizontal to cover all use cases, departments, suppliers, and technologies. This enables data sharing between use cases and departments and opens up for the reusing of taken investments in many new use cases.

When selecting the IoT platform that perfectly fits in this architecture it is not that easy. How to select a platform that doesn’t lock you in? Where you retain complete control over all data, where you easily can add new technologies, new data-flows, new vendors, mix cloud providers, and add new internal or 3rd party services that are cross-organizational. Where you also can integrate your city with your neighbors to share services, data, and cost.

It is based upon these requirements we’ve developed the Yggio IoT integration platform.

FIWARE Marketplace

The FIWARE Marketplace showcases the best solutions and services based on FIWARE. Do you want your solution to be featured?

Sensative’s IoT platform has just been officially approved as a Powered by FIWARE-platform.

“FIWARE Platform Service Providers offer FIWARE as a Service on private and public clouds in which they are operating. Also, Platform Service Providers can deploy FIWARE platform instances on-premises for their customers. Anyone can create a FIWARE instance on their own and on their premises. But it is also possible to choose a company that offers FIWARE platform services.” – like Yggio with all the added functionality.

Yggio is now published on the Fiware Marketplace in the platform section.

Sensorer varnar för höga vattennivåer – UochD

Under lucka 14 i Future by Lunds julkalender berättas det om att man använder sensorer för att varna för höga vattennivåer i Malmö stad.

Ytterligare en intressant tillämpning på Sensatives IoT-plattform Yggio.

Hur är det med julstämningen i Grands matsal?

Julkalender med sensorer – Ett klassiskt ställe att fira julen i Lund på är på Grand Hotel, som etablerades 1899. Ett mått på hur livat det kan vara är såklart ljudnivån, som faktiskt mäts med sensorer. Tänk om Lunds akademiska kör skulle äta julbord, till vilken db-nivå kan de ta julsångerna?

Hur roligt är det med julfest?

Viktiga frågor som denna kan mätas med IoT-teknik. Vi gör ett försök med Grand Hotel att mäta ljudnivåerna runt julbordet.

Och en riktigt God Jul till er alla!

Hur står det till på vinterförvaringen?

Julkalender med sensorer – ‍Under vintern förvarar vi ofta våra saker – eller till och med fordon – i ouppvärmda och ibland fuktiga förråd, garage och källarutrymmen. Samtidigt är det ofta trånga utrymmen dit det kan vara svårt att ta sig för att inspektera status på till exempel textiler eller fordon. En modern lösning på problemet skulle kunna vara att använda en fuktsensor.

Fuktmätning med Sensatives LoRa Strips, Yggio för integrationen och data visat mha Microsoft PowerBI. Ett enkelt demo av möjligheter. Men vi kommer inte att utveckla detta vidare till en kommersiell tjänst. Någon som vill? Hör av er!

Smart building trends: Predictions for what’s to come – Smart Cities World

Franco Castaldini, ThoughtWire, rounds up the smart building trends to look out for.

Harbor Research has noted four critical needs for IoT platforms as they evolve in 2019 and beyond, including:

  • Enablement of real-time temporal, spatial and state-based contextual processing
  • Providing tools for development of real-time, stateful applications
  • Simultaneous and asynchronous action on any type of information from any device, storage or streaming source
  • Configurable software platform architecture enabling both peer-to-peer and client-server distribution of service

If you want to see all these abilities in action, and more, take a look at Sensative’s Yggio platform.

The Connected Ship | Nordic Innovation

This project will support a more sustainable, digitalized and connected maritime industry.

Ships are increasingly being automated and maritime equipment is often controlled by software and programmable devices. However, these control systems on-board are isolated vertical systems dedicated to specific tasks that are not able to communicate with each other or share data.

The goal of the Connected Ship project is to develop and implement a horizontal ship digitalization platform to connect the different digital automation systems and sensor networks across different communication standards on board a ship. This will allow for the shipowners to access and analyze more relevant data to improve vessel performance and reduce costs.

The Future of PropTech Will Be Mass Integration | Propmodo

The past several years have demonstrated that real estate technology is on an upward climb, delivering undeniable value to the largest asset class in the world.

“…an interconnected system in the workplace will no longer be a thing of the past, the linking of manpower, technological devices and other items of business will become a necessity as opposed to just a perk. Office users now use 50 different tech products throughout their day, and none are connected, making being productive less than simple. “

The biggest challenge for property owners is the plethora of systems, vendors, and technologies already installed in the buildings. Adding new tech like IoT makes it even harder to integrate and build upon.

What you do need is an operating system for the building, a platform that handles all the technology in the building, providing a standardized way of developing services and applications, very much as a computers operating system manages all the internal components and attached peripherals. SW developers do not need to address what a manufacturer of the memory board, hard drive or printer has implemented, it is all managed by the OS.

The OS for buildings is called Yggio, provided by Sensative.
