In a pilot project lasting several weeks, Stadtwerke Garbsen measured the CO2 concentration in a kindergarten and two schools. The aim was to enable Corona-compliant operation and healthy indoor air. The results are now available: In June and July, 54 sensors regularly sent CO2 data from rooms with different ventilation options to a central server. If the real-time analysis revealed an excessive carbon dioxide concentration, the sensors gave an acoustic and visual signal to ventilate. The values from the entire measurement phase were evaluated by the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen during the summer vacations.
First Smart City project relies on mioty
An antenna on the roof of the city hall, which has been in place since March, receives the data from the participating institutions. To expand network coverage, STadtwerke Garbsen has installed an additional mobile radio antenna on the roof of the school building. To set up the intelligently networked city, Stadtwerke Garbsen had deliberately chosen Mioty over existing standards such as LoRaWAN. They want to use the wireless technology to implement not just one large-scale project, but a whole range of applications. They are currently planning projects that can make waste disposal more demand-driven and traffic safer and more ecological.
