Light pollution can have a negative impact on flora and fauna. Smart illuminated advertising systems adjust their intensity according to the lighting conditions of their surroundings, saving electricity and reducing light emissions.
Smart solutions and wireless connectivity enable remote maintenance. As a result, service technicians no longer need to travel as often. Not only do they work more efficiently, but they also reduce their fuel usage and emissions.
Sensors in transport containers monitor the condition of goods, preventing food from spoiling or products from being damaged. This reduces the overall amount of food waste.
Devices for digital administration, scanning processes, as well as asset management not only save paper, but simultaneously make processes faster and more efficient.
A "digital twin" is a digital copy of a physical machine or component. It allows emissions for manufacturing processes to be avoided by simulating and optimizing physical products and processes.
Networked sensors provide early warning of machine failures. This increases their longevity and reduces their consumption of resources. Thus, companies save raw materials, fuel, and electricity.
Large amounts of energy are wasted when lights are left on in buildings at night, or when empty rooms are heated. Automated building control of windows, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning ensure optimized energy consumption - and thus lower emissions.
A lot of heat escapes through elevator shafts in buildings. With an IoT-powered box, companies and building managers can determine how much energy is being lost through their elevator shafts - and react accordingly.
Fleet vehicles are equipped with trackers that provide information on location as well as milage and fuel levels. Software plans the most efficient routes, saving fuel and reducing emissions.
The sensor-equipped bins indicate their fill level so that the routes of the disposal vehicles can be optimized. This reduces CO2 and increases customer satisfaction thanks to need-based emptying.
Bike sharing solutions allow travelers to reach their destinations without producing emissions. The LTE-M radio standard makes it possible to find and unlock bikes in the shortest possible time using a smartphone, increasing customer satisfaction and user-friendliness.
Networked charging stations ensure that e-cars are charged in the cheapest way possible and avoid overloading the power grid. For example, they trigger charging processes when electricity is particularly cheap or when surpluses are available.
Sensors continuously collect data such as water levels, tides, snow, ice, and precipitation worldwide to warn of extreme weather events. Radio modules with IoT SIM cards ensure fast data transmission.
Modern and networked streetlamps contain solar panels, wind turbines, and an integrated energy storage. This means they can illuminate streets without tapping into local power supplies, all while using less energy and causing fewer emissions.
