Another interesting solution that originated from tech incubator hub:raum is digital monitoring solution for bridges, tunnels, buildings, and other infrastructure objects made of concrete. BS2 Sicherheitssysteme implemented its solution in the access road to Düsseldorf Airport’s fuel tank farm. There are some 50 sensors in the road surface and bridge copings, they measure temperature, humidity, and corrosion. Sensors are using Deutsche Telekom’s  NB-IoT connectivity for data transfer.

Usual practice is getting the material samples for laboratory extraction of the information about the road condition, now they can use data from sensors to identify critical conditions or irreparable damage to the concrete structures. I know that there’s also some development of similar solution in SEE region and I hope we’ll see it soon as a commercial product on the emerging market of IoT.
