World : Telensa launches smart city networks sensor solution

As well connecting third party sensors over multiple wireless networks, Urban IQ allows the data collected to be visualised on a dashboard.

Connected street lighting and smart city data applications provider, Telensa, has introduced an open solution designed to connect sensors using smart streetlight infrastructure.

As well connecting third party sensors over multiple wireless networks, Urban IQ allows the data collected to be visualised on a dashboard.

Smart city sensing

According to Telensa, the evolution of smart city sensing is at an early stage, and cities cannot predict the mix of sensors and networks needed to support future projects.

Urban IQ uses the light poles’ position to host multiple sensors, connected using the “best-fit lighting” and cellular networks. Telensa said it has created Urban IQ to enable cities to deploy sensors today and to support any future smart city strategy.

Sensor types already deployed include air quality, environmental, waste, drainage, road quality and gunshot detection. Products have been running in pilots for the past 12 months in the US and UK and are now commercially available.
