The FutureIOT joint research project develops IoT solutions for practical challenges in the “City.digital” and “Agriculture.digital” project domains. Robust radio transmission is provided by the mioty® LPWAN technology.
What characterizes large sites such as airports is that they not only cover a particularly broad area, but they also feature a very high number of sensors and various radio signals. Covering an area of 15.75 km², the Franz Josef Strauss Airport in Munich has thousands of water meters. Produced by different manufacturers and belonging to different generations, these meters previously had to be read manually, which was time-consuming and labor-intensive. To reduce this cost point and ensure stable transmission of the meter readings, the airport wanted an efficient solution.
As part of the environmental sensor technology subproject in the “City.digital” project domain, the FutureIOT joint research project is building an IoT infrastructure at Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss Airport based on standardized mioty® technology. For this purpose, three fixed base stations were installed and several water meters were equipped with sensors. The meter readings are transmitted hourly to a central platform via mioty® using end-to-end data encryption. The three mioty® base stations provide complete and stable coverage of the entire open area of Munich Airport.
