The high numbers of moveable bridges in The Netherlands has prompted Mobility Sensing
to develop BridgeSense, an IoT application that provides real-time information about the status of the bridge and therefore if the waterway is obstructed or the road impassable.
Based on solar-powered sensors, the technology can be retrofitted to bridges in a few minutes and reports bridge opening to the LoRa and NB-IoT data communications networks where it can be accessed by all traffic information providers as open data. Fitted in pairs to provide a failsafe system, the units work automatically and have an operational life of three to five years.
