Helium, the American company offering a decentralized, open-source IoT network based on public LoRaWAN® access points since June 2019, is now compatible with Abeeway, an Actility subsidiary specialized in fused multi-technology low-power geolocation, to provide a whole range of IoT geolocation use cases using Abeeway’s smart sensors, suitable for outdoor & indoor asset tracking as well as people’s safety. A dedicated Starter Kit is now also available on ThingPark Market to try it out. Watch the next Helium Uplink Webinar on June 10th - “Introducing Abeeway LoRaWAN GPS Trackers” - to learn more about asset tracking use cases using Abeeway devices on Helium network.
Abeeway Micro Tracker can be attached to keyrings, placed in a bag, hidden in a bicycle, or attached to a pet collar. They can also be used as a call or SOS button. The Compact Tracker and the Industrial Tracker target asset tracking for construction and industrial environments. The Smart Badge focuses on visitor tracking and people safety for hotels, factories, construction sites, hospitals, etc.
For example, Bouygues Construction locates more than 20,000 pieces of equipment in real time, while Volvo Group improved its trucks factory operations thanks to Abeeway. Over 39,000 Abeeway sensors are being deployed in Saudi Arabia by The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, as part of an extended IoT security solution for its construction workforce and vehicle fleet.Abeeway Smart Badges can be used for Proximity Detection & Contact Tracing for Covid-19. The solution ensures that people keep a safe distance from each other and reduces interactions, avoiding temporary shutdowns of operating plants with enhanced security measures, but also tracks all interactions between infected and healthy individuals to instantly identify potential contamination clusters and warn employees before they return to work.The Abeeway trackers are immediately available with a cloud-based device management application which allows them to monitor the devices, their location and to easily configure them. A cloud location platform is provided for easy interfacing to third-party IoT platforms using easy JSON and REST based APIs. A driver is also provided for integrators wanting to interface third- party applications from the Helium data feed.For consumer use, later in the summer, a mobile app will be available for Android and Apple phones, which will provide a simplified configuration interface and will allow you to locate your own trackers as well as share their position with others, so that everyone in the family can know where the cat is. The app also allows users to define custom zones and receive notifications once an item (or a loved one) leaves or enters those areas.
