    According to the World Health Organization, air pollution is causing around 467,000 premature deaths in Europe every year. Cities around the world are committed to improving air quality by drastically reducing the main contributor: road traffic. In most of the cases, drastic measures are being taken by capitals like London, Paris or Madrid forbidding private cars usage on given days or during seasons. However, this is not enough. With powerful technology-enabled tools, cities can improve their decision-making process.

    One example is the successful project developed in Chester City (United Kingdom), where Advanticsys Internet of Things technology has been used to reduce air pollution caused through traffic congestion by linking air quality measurements to a local authority’s traffic management control system. The project aimed to test the feasibility of developing an integrated data platform for Chester city centre. The focus was on linking a novel air quality network of low cost wireless sensors with the traffic management within the city centre to alleviate air pollution ‘hot spots’ caused by queuing traffic.

    Advanticsys provided a scalable low-cost wireless sensor network which included air quality sensing units measuring key traffic pollutants: nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM).

    Dr Hannah Newton, the project lead, from UK-based company C-Tech Innovation said: “We have installed air quality sensors in the Cheshire West and Cheshire (CWAC) air quality management area for comparison alongside the CWAC pollution analysers. These sensor units are mounted to the lamp posts in the area and communicate over the mobile network. The project concept is to create air quality sensors that can be linked to a city’s traffic management control system (traffic lights, signage etc.) to help alleviate hotspots of pollution caused by heavy traffic.”

    The end-to-end solution provided by Advanticsys is completed with the Concordia Cloud platform, where the data from sensing units are being sent in real time. The platform also includes events notification by email.

    Comments Off on Spanish DSO Selects Advanticsys Monitoring Solutions for District Heating and Cooling Project

    Advanticsys extends its projects portfolio with an automated meter reading project in one of the largest District Heating/Cooling networks in the south of Europe, operated by Spanish company Sampol. In particular, this project, located in Palma (Majorca – Spain) provides heating and cooling to the Balearic Islands University (UIB) and the Balearic Islands Innovation Park “Parc Bit”. Built in 2000, it comprises a tri-generation plant providing heating and/or cooling to 25 different customers.

    Sampol, as DHC operator, requested an end-to-end solution for remotely collecting meters data previously installed. Advanticsys deployed a system based on its datalogger MPC-330 with M-Bus interfaces to read data from Kamstrup meters and to send them periodically through csv files to a remote server. In parallel, a Modbus TCP connection was enabled to support real time data collection from company SCADA.

    Vélez-Málaga Municipality monitors urban air quality making use of ADVANTICSYS M2M technology
    Comments Off on Vélez-Málaga Municipality monitors urban air quality making use of ADVANTICSYS M2M technology

    ADVANTICSYS completed the deployment of a complete air quality monitoring solution at Vélez-Málaga, located in the South of Spain. The Municipality requested to have online information concerning different gases concentration values so that they could take appropriate actions when needed.
     
    Thus, following customer requirements, ADVANTICSYS proposed a monitoring station composed by the following sensors: PM10, O3, NO2, SO2, CO and H2S. Monitoring stations are able to push data periodically through a GPRS connection to the Advanticsys® Concordia Cloud Platform , hosted in ADVANTICSYS servers.
    Its features include:

    • SCADA with real time data update
    • Data collected stored in cloud database including maintenance and backup features
    • Communications tested continuously, registering events and generating alarms if link to the station is lost
    • Alarm sending function through email
    • Alarms defined based on maximum, minimum or band thresholds
    • Historical data shown in graphs and tables
    • Data can be exported to csv files
    • Multi-monitor support for control center
    The cloud platform is developed as a web server so supervision can be done from any remote location connected to the Internet with no need to install any additional software, apart from a web explorer.
