Smart Waterways

Your Challenge

As waterway operator you have many lakes, river and canal sections, locks, bridges and other assets to manage. Live data on the state and use of your waterways and assets allow you to operate your network more efficiently, and to better inform your bridge and waterway users. However, conventional sensoring solutions for waterways are quite basic and prohibitively expensive. But no more!

Our Technology

Mobility Sensing combines the latest Internet-of-Things (IoT) and edge computing technology. Allowing our sensing solutions to be fully autonomous:

  • No mains power – significantly lowering the installation costs
  • IoT radio communication – IT secure

Data from sensor devices is continuously collected and validated by our cloud service. You can view both live and historic sensor data in our dashboard in maps, lists and charts. Use the export function of the dashboard to analyse your data in Excel or other information systems. Ingest live sensor data into other information systems using our easy to use and secure API.
