|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||March 2019 - September 2019|
Purpose and goal
The project would evaluate the possibility of using IoT technology, to be able to directly report events and errors that may occur with an automatic door to users and service providers. Our prototype of an IoT solution corresponding to both purpose and goal and presented real-time information on the status of the door. Translated into practical use, the user can work proactively and prevent or foresee future mistakes, saving both time and money through faster service and shorter downtime.
Expected results and effects
By connecting different door functions and testing these in-house, we were able to confirm that all responses to the events and errors that occurred and could be reported and reported in real time. The information was presented online via a web application on a computer, tablet and smartphone, in order for a user and / or a service provider to act accordingly.
Planned approach and implementation
We have developed a prototype consisting of hardware with associated software, which monitored and fault-detected the automatic door locks. The hardware has communicated with a database, whose software has translated and made the information presentable on a computer, tablet and smartphone. The door automation and prototype have been installed in a Mock Up to easily test and track the entire chain of real-time information from event to user.
