We want to go to mobility 4.0! No more annoying traffic jams or searching for parking spaces in a crowded city center. New technical possibilities for predictive traffic control for road, ship and rail traffic are already a reality and are sometimes referred to as "smart traffic", which is part of the digital innovations in the age of the "smart city". There seems to be no lack of creativity in the applications, yet the basic problem is of a real nature. Urbanization, air pollution from ever more traffic, and resource scarcity demand solutions. Mobility 4.0 points the way toward data-based networking and digitization of transport, or the entire range of transport infrastructure. This includes, in particular, the optimization of traffic and the integration of monitoring systems.
audako enables, among other things, the monitoring and control of a traffic system. In the field of traffic monitoring, the task includes monitoring a large number of measured values in real time from widely distributed locations and, with actions at the right time, directing traffic to different lanes or waterways (e.g. for shipping) to ensure the flow of traffic. audako has all the technical functions to collect enormous measurement data (Big Data) from smart meters and sensors in the database. The analysis of the data is automated. This data is converted into intelligent information (Smart Data) and is available visualized on the dashboard. The possible uses of our audako IoT platform in the Mobility 4.0 world are very diverse.
By bundling the functions of an IoT telecontrol system and using audako Edge Gateways, real-time data transport can be achieved cost-effectively. With the flexible combination option, countless manufacturer-independent substations can be connected. You can network different traffic systems and devices. Our audako Edge Gateway devices are physical devices with integrated IoT technology. It serves as a connection point between the cloud and other smart meters. An audako Edge Gateway can pre-process data locally and meets high real-time requirements. Real-time data is important for predictive maintenance, sensor status reporting, level control and monitoring, asset tracking, and critical event security.
Our monitoring system for traffic route construction will impress you. The use of several level probes throughout the construction site ensures permanent real-time monitoring. If a control level exceeds a previously set limit value, an alarm is triggered and the responsible employee is notified. Operating costs can thus be saved, as time-consuming manual readout and control service times are eliminated.
audako can do that too: Intelligent control of automatic bridges. Our condition monitoring system through the use of intelligent sensor technology helps to measure expansion and strain gauges. The collection and analysis of relevant data on impact and resistance changes in real time are carried out in the IoT platform using intelligent algorithms.
audako can help you to enable smart networking and control of lock operation and the associated pumping stations. You can optimise energy generation or use, or forecast water levels in the harbour basin. The entire water traffic can be controlled and operated more efficiently via the audako IoT platform.
The maintenance of bridges is a time-consuming and costly undertaking, especially in times of climate change and increased traffic volume in cities. Our audako Condition Monitoring System is able to analyse conditions on bridges in time and to predict their progress before any damage occurs. Corrosion, relative humidity and temperature values are monitored wirelessly using intelligent sensors, which are crucial for the load-bearing capacity and long-term stability of the bridge.
With audako IoT platform you create your goal to networked traffic. audako takes over the intelligent control of traffic flows such as rail, cars and ships based on analysed data on traffic volume, weather influences or environmental factors. The data is automatically collected from intelligent sensors, thermometers and meters for analysis purposes to enable predictive traffic monitoring. Based on the smart data, environmental zones can be set up, for example.
How can you avoid traffic jams on roads, escape the often nerve-racking search for a parking space and at the same time minimize C02 emissions? The solution: With audako Egde Gateways you can. Data is collected and evaluated in the cloud over long distances. audako takes over the coordination: you are conveniently guided to free parking spaces via app.
With audako you can digitalize your waste management. Fill levels of waste bins and waste containers can be monitored automatically by IoT fill level sensors and this in real-time data. The sensors communicate wirelessly with the cloud. You are notified at an early stage if a limit value is exceeded. Annoying checks are a thing of the past. Thanks to GPS, you can plan your routes more efficiently and save on operating costs.
audako monitors your critical control parameters completely automatically with our monitoring system. If a limit value is exceeded, you will be notified via intelligent alarm functions. You can integrate your existing smart meters such as sensors, thermometers or other measuring devices into audako. Our audako monitoring system can be used, for example, in air freighters for temperature monitoring for vaccine or food transport.
On large ships, several water treatment processes usually take place. This can be the purification of waste water or ballast water before it is discharged back into the waters or the extraction of drinking water from seawater. audako has all the condition monitoring functions such as automatic level measurement by sensors or pressure regulation on pumps to measure, control and monitor the entire process of treatment and extraction.
The remote access system from audako gives you flexibility and expands your maintenance management options. The remote access solution is easy to implement, user-friendly and offers a high security standard. External access can be defined individually. When an incident occurs, the responsible employee does not necessarily have to be on site. You can call up your data at any time and rectify many faults directly on the device. A mobile remote control facilitates the monitoring of e.g. technical devices. The fast response time for the elimination of malfunctions or emergencies increases the productivity and service life of your technology.
The audako IoT platform informs external maintenance teams or an on-call person with a variety of alerting options, enabling quick action. audako sends notifications taking into account the available personnel according to the work plan, responsibilities and the alert escalation rules. In audako you can work with different user roles, which are assigned different rights, duties and views depending on their responsibilities. You can integrate a camera monitoring system for support, which additionally performs visual monitoring around the clock. You save yourself cost-intensive routine checks. In addition, you increase functional reliability through short monitoring times and weather-independent control frequency.
With audako you can find out in real time which operating resources and goods are available or in use. With geofencing, you can determine the current location of your assets. The position data is permanently transmitted to the audako IoT platform via 5G with multi-net SIM cards. There is an immediate alert and notification to the user if critical condition values are exceeded or if a construction equipment leaves the defined geo-coordinates of the construction site. audako Asset Tracking is a simple and cost-effective solution for permanent real-time monitoring of your assets. The integration of GPS monitoring into your audako solution is quick and uncomplicated. The trackers used are almost maintenance-free, weather-resistant and a cost-effective investment thanks to their long battery life.
All data of the traffic infrastructure converge in the cloud, which allows you to control and manage the entire traffic. Other modes of transport or solutions can be integrated into the audako IoT platform without any problems, thus achieving greater networking of the infrastructure and also of different modes of transport with each other.
