Neuron sensors and IoT contribute to sustainable development

A few days ago, Neuron sensors was the first solution to be presented when Innovation Norway presented theexplorer, a digital showroom for Norwegian green and sustainable solutions.

Why are sensors part of the solution?

According to the World Economic Forum, IoT (the internet of things) could be a game-changer for sustainability. But how? Sensors do not produce renewable energy. They cannot cleanse water, plant trees or remove microplastics from the sea – at least not alone.

Addressing the increasing amount and complexity of stuff

The environmental problems we face today are by and large caused by extensive use of technology. IoT represents an opportunity to use technology for the better.

The amount and complexity of things, infrastructure, production processes and buildings increase day by day. We cope with this complexity with educated personnel and computers and algorithms more advanced and powerful than ever before. But, without reliable data from the physical world, decision-making is guesswork and valuable resources are lost in the knowledge gaps.

IoT enables other technologies to improve

Wireless sensors and IoT are a new toolbox to gather data and get a more complete perspective on the things we use to live and produce. Better oversight and insight allows us to improve efficiency and develop better solutions for sustainable development.

Neuron wireless sensors deliver a steady supply of facts (every other second) that enable people and machines to learn and make better decisions. And that saves time, money, energy and environment.
