We are a startup inserted in the context of smart cities, Internet of Things (IoT) and sustainability. We have developed a Water Distribution Management System, with the main focus being the automatic detection of leaks in the distribution network.
We received support from FAPESP through the PIPE-FAPESP program, and in 2016, we were incubated at the Sorocaba Technology Park, where in the same year we were finalists of the Inovativa program (cycle 2016.01).
In January 2017, we signed an important partnership with the sanitation company Águas de Votorantim. We had the opportunity to test, and validate, all technology developed until then.
In June 2017, we won first prize in the Innovative Startup Award at the 47th Congress of ASSEMAE – National Association of Municipal Sanitation Services, being recognized by the sanitation market as an innovative company.
With the increase of the urban population and its agglomeration in large centers, the “Smart Cities” have been identified as the future of city management. Its development can bring greater sustainability and real improvement in the services provided to citizens. Here are some examples:
The IoT or “internet of things” has been presenting itself as the next step in technological development. This tendency allows physical objects (buildings, machines, traffic lights, automobiles, etc.) to collect data and transmit it without the need for human intervention.
The great revolution caused by IoT is the possibility to control environments and situations automatically through protocols and control rules. See the following examples:
One type of IoT application is IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). Its focus is specifically the application of sensoriments and controls in the industrial context. The field of application of IIoT is very wide, since within the industry it is very important to have control of the operation of machines and equipment. Such control may in some cases be critical to the health and safety of the company’s employees. See the following examples:
