RPMA-enabled IoT solution to provide air quality monitoring, serving municipal customers.
Ingenu Inc.™ today announced it will be demonstrating the capabilities of an environmental monitoring solution, integrating its RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) network technology with the Libelium Plug&Sense! Air Quality monitoring device and PTC’s ThingWorx® IoT platform.
The solution will be demonstrated in the Ingenu booth during the Smart Cities Summit event, taking place December 6-7, 2016 at the Courtyard Boston Downtown, in Boston, Mass.
The demonstration will simulate an environmental monitoring solution measuring the air quality index (AQI) of Boston as an example. The RPMA-enabled Libelium Plug&Sense! device will collect information on levels of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone and will provide evaluation and assessment of AQI and preventive alerts and insightful actions based on the data collected. In turn, the ThingWorx platform will provide automated predictive modeling and will deliver prescriptive and simulative intelligence to bring environmental data to end-users.
Joshua Builta, vice president of product management at Ingenu, said:
“As levels of air pollution continue to increase across the globe, environmental monitoring is of utmost concern to municipalities and a major facet of their smart city initiatives. Governmental regulations are also driving adoption of environmental monitoring solutions for cities, so implementation of this type of solution is top-of-mind with city managers and city CIOs.”
In a recent report by Transparency Market Research, the global market for air quality monitoring equipment stood at $4.2 billion in 2015, and is predicted to reach nearly $9 billion by 2024.
Ingenu is currently building out its nationwide Machine Network across the United States, and is targeted to serve over 100 major metropolitan areas by the end of 2017. The Machine Network provides more than 100,000 square miles of wireless coverage for a host of IoT applications, and is ideal for smart city applications such as environmental monitoring.
