The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 5 startups & scaleups developing innovative wireless sensor solutions. Moreover, the Heat Map reveals regions that observe a high startup activity and illustrates the geographic distribution of all 199 companies we analyzed for this specific topic.
Ackcio – Wireless Monitoring
Wireless sensors record data from various kinds of interfaces and transmit it over short and long ranges. This is one of the reasons startups and scaleups are exploring their use for remote monitoring of assets in multiple industries. Additionally, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) integrate a large number of individual sensors in a scalable and cost-efficient manner.
Ackcio is a Singaporean startup that offers sensor solutions for wireless monitoring. Ackcio Beam is a scalable system that enables operators to add or replace nodes in a sensor mesh network. These include analog, vibrating, digital, relay, and gateway nodes. The solution monitors sensors in construction, mining, as well as other remote or hard-to-reach sites.
Vicotee – Scalable IoT
Advancements in the internet of things (IoT) and related technologies are transforming multiple industries and sectors. Wireless sensors, generally retrofittable and customizable, help companies scale their IoT operations. These wireless sensors enable the automation of data collection while requiring little maintenance and low power.
Norwegian startup Vicotee provides a range of wireless sensor technologies for various industries and applications, including smart cities, agriculture, logistics, among others. The startup’s Aurora Sensor portfolio lists sensors to track location, temperature, and acceleration, as well as humidity, indoor environment, distance, and water level. Additionally, the Vicotee Cloud stores and visualizes data collected from the sensors for easy analysis.
Nighsense – Industrial Automation
The recent growth in industrial automation is concurrent with and, in large part, due to wireless sensors. Unlike wired solutions, these sensors are easy to install and upgrade, are low-cost to deploy and maintain, and decentralize automation. By combining data collection and data transmission in a single device, they open new efficiencies, such as monitoring moving parts.
Nighsense is a Canadian startup that develops sensor solutions for industrial automation. The startup uses long-range wide area network (LoRaAWAN) technology for its temperature and humidity sensor. It also offers an IoT hub for indoor and outdoor applications, including smart cold chain monitoring.
MachineMax – Wireless Telematics
Telematics combines telecommunications and informatics and finds applications in multiple industries, such as automotive, healthcare, and manufacturing. Wireless telematics further opens opportunities for startups to develop innovative applications. Wireless telematics also enables seamless and safer communication between devices and infrastructure.
British startup MachineMax offers an equipment management platform based on wireless telematics. The solution includes a battery-operated wireless sensor that connects otherwise unconnected machinery to track location and performance. It uses cloud-based algorithms to integrate, store, and analyze incoming data to deliver real-time and actionable insights.
Radio Bridge – IoT Data-as-a-Service (DaaS)
As companies transition to Industry 4.0, there is an increase in the adoption of IoT-based solutions. However, setting up the required infrastructure is often not within the means of startups, particularly in industries where there are other significant costs involved. IoT data-as-a-service solutions enable businesses to collect actionable data without investing in setting up the IoT infrastructure. Wireless sensors stand out as an easy plug-and-play method to achieve this.
Radio Bridge is a US-based startup that provides IoT data-as-a-service. It installs end-to-end systems for temperature monitoring, site security, air quality monitoring, water leak, and pipe freeze detection, etc. The startup also customizes LoRaWAN, a low-power wide-area network (LP-WAN), sensors to meet the specific needs of the customers.
