EV Charging & Smart Grids

EV (Electric Vehicle) charging and local microgeneration/storage will create a whole new market in energy.

Utility Infrastructure

Monitoring and control will allow for more efficient utility infrastructure, saving money and precious resources.

Privacy & Security

Keeping devices and data secure from evolving threats needs security designed in from day one and an ability to apply patches remotely if security flaws appear over the deployment lifecycle.

Integration of Services

Imagine if air pollution sensors and dynamic road use charging were linked to create dynamic road pricing to reduce congestion? This level of joined up thinking will be possible as services integrate, modifying behaviours and improving environments.

Scale

Many Smart City developments to date have been too fragmented to impact society outside of small pilots. Wider deployments of successful systems will yield all the benefits of scale and begin to deliver real impact.

Assisted Living

Health and activity monitoring devices approach medical diagnostic quality, supporting fine grain monitoring of patients away from hospitals and helping the most vulnerable participate in their communities.

Connectivity

Ubiquitous high bandwidth data & massive Machine to Machine (M2M) communications will drive a wide range of new services. From millions of building management sensors making comfort and efficiency enhancing adjustments to latency free remote working.

Parking & City Planning

Apps to help find and pay for parking are already rolling out. Longer term trends may see separation of car parks from areas of densest population. Vast areas of our cities that have traditionally been given over to car parks will be re-used for housing, offices or green spaces.

MaaS

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) will take-off in cities with private car ownership diminishing and public transport becoming more personalised. But will people want to share their cars?

With sensors embedded everywhere from consumer devices to city infrastructure, we can capture and translate your environment into meaningful information. Whether you’re looking for a new sensor for a niche application or a wide area network made up of thousands of nodes, our scientists and engineers have decades of experience in providing customers with field-proven solutions.

Plextek Joins ARM Mbed Partnership to Support IoT Innovation

8th January 2020: Innovation and design consultancy Plextek has been named an ARM Mbed Partner and joins the growing ecosystem of leading embedded and cloud companies, component manufacturers, system integrators and OEMs committed to driving innovation in IoT.

Drones for Mission-Critical Use

Nigel Whittle, Head of Medical & Healthcare, features in Critical Communications Today this week. Drones have the potential to revolutionise public safety operations in areas such as fire and rescue. But there are regulatory and logistical barriers.

Vehicle Asset Management System

Vehicle Asset Management System (VAM) products enable efficient management of vehicular fleets (e.g. fleets, emergency services and heavy equipment/machinery) and offer driver-behaviour monitoring for the vehicle insurance markets.

Intelligent Mobility

Autonomous vehicles must be capable of sensing their environment, including moving objects and people, so that they can move safely with little to no human input or risk. The de-risking exercise involves testing and validation using real-life scenarios in a controlled environment.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring

A market leader in tyre pressure monitoring was going through a transformation of their product from Analog to Digital. A product that worked in their labs and limited trials failed when put to test in the real environment.
