Heliot Europe presents innovative IoT solutions for digital transformation of the logistics sector

Bled Strategic Forum has developed into the leading international conference in Central and South-Eastern Europe, offering a platform for expressing opinions on modern society and its future. Not only domestically, but also abroad the forum gained the reputation of a meeting place where participants can exchange their views openly, seeking solutions to economic and social challenges.
This is one of the reasons why Heliot Europe, the largest provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions on the Sigfox 0G network in Europe, is attending the forum. The group operates in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein, and since 2019 also in Slovenia. In just ten months the Slovenian team has already achieved a network coverage of 50 percent of the range planned for 2021/22.

0G from Sigfox is in the air: complete solution for smart indoor air quality monitoring

“As important as the air we breathe” – air quality has always played one of the most central roles in our lives – and in times of a global pandemic, indoor air quality control takes on added importance. Pollutants in the air – including CO2 (carbon dioxide) – also generally pose one of the greatest risks to health. This makes it all the more important to keep a constant eye on the quality of indoor air. With the “Better Air” campaign, Sigfox Germany now offers a powerful, easy-to-manage and turnkey solution for gaining control over air quality. For all interested commercial customers and public institutions, a complete test package is therefore available for a limited period at a special price – to try out how easy and uncomplicated it is to keep an eye on the air quality.

The Internet of Animals: Today’s Sheep Radio with 0G

Long since standard in modern logistics, the Internet of Things (IoT) is now also moving into alpine pastures. Locating and controlling animals, planning and maintaining pastures – the management of an alpine pasture takes a lot of time. So much time, in fact, that in 2019 the Raumberg-Gumpenstein Federal Agricultural Research Station (HBLFA) launched the two-year practical project “Pasture GPS” for more efficiency in pasture management. For the series of tests, which has now ended, 85 Austrian alpine pastures were equipped with GPS trackers from the vehicle industry, which run via the classic GSM mobile phone network. On the alpine pastures that had no network coverage for this, the grazing animals radioed with the trackers from Digitanimal via the Sigfox 0G radio network from Heliot Europe, which is operated under the name Sigfox Austria. After two years, project manager Reinhard Huber draws a positive balance about the series of trials: “At first we were worried whether our farmers would even want to be part of the project, but in the end we had such a great demand – it was a complete success!”
