DAVOS MATRIX by CTI Software brings AI to IoT

Last year DAVOS MATRIX started its presence within IoT as an intelligent service that can call you on your mobile phone as soon as the emergency situation detected by wireless sensors develops. Now it has made a big step forward integrating the IQRF wireless technology.

Thanks to the presence of the IQRF wireless technology, the system has completely new functionality. Our intelligent lighting control allows remote management of public lighting and industrial luminaires, including monitoring of unusual operating conditions. It is designed for all types of luminaires.

In addition to automatic behavior of the lighting system, it is possible to change the settings of individual luminaires manually by an authorized user. If the luminaire provides the option of adjusting various lighting intensities (dimming), this parameter can be changed as well.

The control unit (including IQRF gateway) communicates with all the luminaires wirelessly via the IQRF meshnetwork. At a short point in time, it sends all the IQRF receiving modules in the luminaires requests to change settings or query the current status. The IQRF receiving modules send back to the control unit responses to its requests and, moreover, transmit all memorized error states since the last communication.

IQRF receiving module can be placed directly inside the luminaire’s construction if the dimensions allow it, or attached to a plastic pocket above the luminaire (via the NEMAconnector). The receiving module checks the connected luminaire for its functioning. At defined intervals, the drawn current is measured. It can then evaluate deterioration or degradation of the luminaire in order to prevent an early failure.

Next to this project we plan to use the IQRF technology also in our air quality sensors as it is the best solution for local stationary deployments. Together with our telephonyalarmnotification service DAVOS MATRIX can bring an excellent added value for many IQRF based devices and solutions.

Thinking about the wireless IoT application? Take advantage of the IoT Starter Kit!

We used the new IoT Starter Kit to get the sensor data and turn on / off relays. The application can be easily complemented by additional HW and SW extensions.

Because all necessary software and services are already ready for it and made available to the public, the development of the wireless IoT application is easy and fast. Tutorials are also available for the kit, which will take us through all the basic steps.

IQRF Summit 2017 – early birds prices available until the end of March only!

IQRF Alliance and partners invite you at a two-day summit where you can expect more than 30 interactive presentations and 12 hands-on workshops from the IoT field. You will find here real examples from areas of smart cities, smart buildings and homes, industry, security and transportation.

Among the presenters you will find representatives from companies such as Microsoft, O2, AAEON, NETIO products, MICRORISC, Aledo, Protronix, IQ Home, CITIQ, DATmoLUX, RehiveTech and many others.

 

Date: June 7th to 8th, 2017

Location: Clarion Congress Hotel Prague

Registration: www.iqrf.org/summit2017/registration

 

Solutions presented at the Summit are based on the IQRF technology, one of the leading wireless mesh networking technologies on the market. IQRF operates on sub gigahertz ISM bands to collect small data from devices and/or to control them. Extremely low power consumption of this platform enables devices to work on batteries for many years. There are hundreds of thousands devices running on this mature technology since 2008.

Among the topics presented you can find here solutions of parking, lighting, temperature monitoring with energy savings, sensory monitoring of indoor air quality, industry safety and much more.

One of the key topics presented here is a system for remote monitoring and management of an IQRF network through a gateway with installed client software. Monitoring data are sent to the back-end in a cloud to be processed and visualized and remote devices to be controlled. This solution enables operators to solve most of the necessary operating interventions remotely, including software upgrades and changes in a device configuration in the IQRF network. Experts in work with sensoric data, among other things, will show how you can work with gathered data in case of failure of connection to the Internet.

The Summit will host the final of the international competition IQRF Wireless Challenge III and authors of the best projects will present their solution to the professional public.

Moreover, there will be a networking event enabling informal meetings of all participants, discussion on interesting topics and establishing new business partnerships.
