VIVAVIS IoT-Hub - The base for Smart Cities
The Internet of Things (IoT) involves the interconnection and exchange of data between everyday physical objects and the internet. This includes electric household appliances, devices for environmental monitoring (e.g. temperature and CO2 sensors), but also status indicators and sensors for the monitoring of events.
It is also possible to install specific sensors within energy supply infrastructures. These sensors provide, for instance, information on the state of transformer substations or on the filling level of elevated water reservoirs. Moreover, IoT sensors support the compilation of data for the establishment of Smart Cities; this includes, for example, devices for the monitoring of parking spaces and for the optimisation of traffic flows in busy areas, as well as the monitoring of vehicle charging points, to enable troubleshooting and improve forecasts.
VIVAVIS IoT Hub serves as a connection with IoT infrastructures and receives data from different sensors. Thereby providing a safe bridge between the different IoT networks and technologies on the one hand and the VIVAVIS expert systems on the other hand. VIVAVIS IoT Hub makes sure that the data acquired by the sensors are provided to the downstream expert applications in a standardised form. A first overview of the IoT data is provided by the VIVAVIS dashboard.
