By 2050 up to 80% of the world’s population will be living in macro-cities, this raises a lot of new technological challenges that improve the management of resources, infrastructure, and wastes. The aggregation of all these technological solutions is called the Smart City, it includes a bunch of digitization projects for public lighting, parking, air quality, watering, transport, and much more.
IoT plays a crucial role in the development of these cities, allowing simple access to every data source and providing:
Over the last 30 years, buildings have acquired great technological advances that simplify their maintenance and improve people’s comfort. Traditionally, ad-hoc wiring and centralized systems have been used for each facility, IoT is revolutionizing this environment, providing a common infrastructure for every solutions and additional services thanks to the interoperability of systems.
Thingsboard offers essential functionalities for a successful IoT deployment:
There is a multitude of applicable use cases, especially in large structures such as hotels, campuses, offices, and neighborhood communities such as: Air Conditioning, access or occupational control, Irrigation systems and much more.
The integration of building infrastructures can be done by means of IoT and old standard connectors.
IoT provides multiple benefits for asset management projects, providing real-time information that can be used to plan responses to future events such as purchases optimization, asset tracking to improve productivity in the base of current asset status, as well as ensure the security and safety of the asset.
This technology is providing a lot of opportunities to create new products and services that continue to increase the advantages of asset management. From Thingsboard we are helping hundreds of companies on this labor by providing them with:
Industrial IoT is a growing tendency that proposes connecting all structures, machinery, vehicles and even operators to a server where data is processed as a whole. This produces multiple benefits such as management decision support, remote monitoring of equipment, development of predictive maintenance systems, and digital twins.
The role of IoT in these solutions is always to provide an efficient and secure basis for the connection and management of machinery in real-time, the key functions in which Thingsboard offers solid and reliable support for this technology are:
Compatible with every industrial protocol (Modbus, OPCUA, ProfiBUS) and IoT technologies like LoRaWAN, Sigfox, or 4G Thingsboard allows to collect, store and analyze real-time data, share results of the analysis with customers and end-users or forward data to third-party analytics frameworks.
Fleet management is a technology that minimizes the risks associated with vehicle operation, improving efficiency and productivity by monitoring assets to know their location and status, improving maintenance and simplifying supply logistics.
The integration of an advanced IoT platform equipped with real-time data analysis and hyper-connectivity of systems allows to add to the usual fleet tracking products elements that monitor the load and the vehicle environment, providing them with advanced capabilities to improve efficiency, increase the safety of cargo and operators and even develop new strategies and business avenues.
Thingsboard platform allows to create Fleet tracking infrastructures saving time and costs during the development and the deployment of the solution by providing the following features:
ThingsBoard IoT platform provides out-of-the-box components and APIs to dramatically drive down effort required to create smart metering solutions, resulting in highly improved time to market, reliability, and competitiveness of your solutions. By our estimates, companies may save up to 90% of their product development time when utilizing the following features and benefits of ThingsBoard:
The ThingsBoard IoT platform provides production ready server infrastructure to connect your smart meter devices, collect, store and analyze smart metering data, and share results of the analysis with your customers and end-users.
