› Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are a powerful instrument enabling user to be connected with sensors and actuators
WSN are the evolution of environmental monitoring and actuating systems, for complex remote operations.
Wireless networks are made up distributed units, capable to transmit sampled data from the field, using the internet, directly to final user.
Interesting data are continuously updated, allowing to evaluate the evolution of observed phenomenon. This is possible with a sampling scale and rate as low as few meters and few minutes, unimaginable until few years ago.
Technology improvements make also possible to remotely operate for actuator programming and activation.
› Netsens’ vision
Netsens was one of the first companies to develop and produce solutions based on wireless sensors and actuators networks. This results also in several scientific papers and proceedings from international congress, meetings and research projects, where Netsens has been involved in.
Our Company realized that the following requirements are mandatory for a satisfactory implementation of WSNs in real applications:
- Simple installation, not interfering with other activities and environment requirements
- Long battery lifetime, even without solar panel recharge
- High communication reliability
- Scalability and modular expansion.
For this reason Netsens developed innovative and proprietary technologies, both in hardware and software, full matching with application requirements. The development of competitive products allowed Netsens to rapidly gain a leadership in its commercial area.
A peculiarity of Netsens is the “system vision”: the Company invested on the development of a proprietary communication platform, as well as several strategic sensors. This represents the perfect integration of all the key elements of this system.
This results in a remarkable cost reduction for the Customer, with less intermediations and fees, and in an efficiency improvement, since the whole system is composed of equipments designed to fulfill specific requirements, and not just integrated.
With continuous R&D investments, our Company targets to enforce its leadership position in viticulture and agriculture application, as well in environmental and industrial monitoring, and in infomobility applications.
