Today, Damir Mandić, Mayor of Karlovac, Mate Botica, Member of the Managing Board and Director of Transmitters and Communications Ltd. (OiV), and Zvonimir Jurin, Member of the Managing Board of KONČAR – Electronics and Informatics, have officially signed an Agreement on the implementation of the pilot project titled “Remote meter and sensor reading – SenzoriKA”.

The project will include the implementation of a “smart city” test system with data visualization for the citizens, which will allow the collection of data on the consumption of all energy sources and water, as well as information about air quality and temperature, collected waste and parking space availability.

The system is based on an integrated solution designed by OiV and KONČAR – Electronics and Informatics, which uses the OIV Smartino IoT (Lora WAN) technology for the transfer of data, and KONČAR’s MARS software for data processing and visualization.

The system enables the acquisition of data from devices produced by different manufacturers, as well as the monitoring and control via the LoRaWAN low-power radio network, which allows the use of battery-powered devices, and all data are available to the business systems of the city companies, and, if necessary, to the citizens.

Said technology covers a wide range of applications, including water meters, gas meters, electricity meters, management and control of public lighting, air quality sensors, parking lot occupancy, sensors for monitoring water levels, temperature, humidity, and water quality sensors, and GPS tracking. In addition, it allows the integration of other technologies and the existing terminals into the LoRaWAN ecosystem.
