As retail businesses begin to reopen following lockdown and government restrictions, many companies are looking at technology and IoT solutions to help comply with new regulations, while also safeguarding their staff and customers. IoT technology can assist retailers in a post-covid-19 era and give shoppers peace of mind as they return to the high street.
Retailers and supermarkets have introduced new “one-in-one-out” rules designed to enforce social distancing and limit the spread of coronavirus. IoT and people counting technology can be used to automate the process of one-in-one-out, therefore, reducing cost and improving safety.
Monitoring bathing water quality with IoT reduces cost, improves coverage and provides real-time measurements. The use of IoT technology offers rich datasets and real-time alerting for bathing water or pollution events.
An LPWan (Low Power Wide Area Network) is a type of wireless network , well suited for IoT and sensors, where low-power, long-range data communications is a requirement. Typically LPWan technologies have data-rates of less than 100Kbps so are not comparable to broadband, but are well suited to data transmission from IoT sensors. Read more
Smart Parking sensors are intelligent IoT nodes that are installed in parking spaces, or within road-side spaces, and are able to detect the presence of a parked vehicle. The sensors can then trigger events for use with intelligent parking apps or for intelligent parking enforcement. Manx Technology Group can design and supply Smart Parking solutions for parking applications in the UK or Ireland, including the sensors, LoRaWAN network, back-office systems and Smart Parking Apps.

Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can enhance the operating models and efficiencies of utility companies, particularly those involved with water and sewage. Utility companies are no stranger to IoT technology, with numerous deployments of smart-grid and smart meters throughout the world. IoT technology is, however, developing fast, and the newest range of sensors and comms technologies have the potential to transform the industry. Read more
Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is perhaps one of the most critical indicators of water quality. IoT (Internet of Things) dissolved oxygen sensors are used to measure the oxygen content in water, in real-time accurately, and transmit the results back to a central database or water monitoring platform.
How do IoT air particulate sensors compare to the reference-grade equipment used by agencies and Government bodies? In this post, we look at the level of accuracy that can be achieved using the Libelium Smart Environment compared to more expensive reference equipment.
The ability to remote monitor river levels is possible with IoT technology. IoT allows you to monitor river levels in multiple locations accurately, and the data can be transmitted back wirelessly in real-time. In this blog post, we look at the different components and sensors required to monitor river levels.
Sick Building Syndrome describes a situation where the occupants of an office or building suffer from nonspecific health issues or feel under the weather when spending time in the building. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can monitor several parameters that may contribute to sick building syndrome, including pollutants, legionella, VOC (volatile organic compounds), temperature, moisture, CO2, light and noise levels.
