Sensors installation by a third party

+1 vote
Hi everyone!

My experiment requires the installation of numerous sensors in the city. In order to get a price estimation, I've contacted with a third party company. After this, checking the Organicity technical environment, I've seen that many sensors have been installed in every city within the city cluster. My questions are:

- Does Organicity offer any third company support for performing this task?

- Is there any problem if I use a third company for this task even if the provided sensors data is stored in an intermediate infrastructure?

- Could anyone recommend me a sensor brand and/or model for installing sensors in car parks? I need to know whether the car park is free or not.

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Hi Sergio,

generally speaking, Organicity deals with data rather than devices. This way, in your experiment you will need to integrate the data gathered from your sensors into Organicity using the corresponding APIs. We cannot 

I'm asking your questions below.

- Does Organicity offer any third company support for performing this task?

No. Sorry, it is not actually a task considered within the experimentation support carried out by Organicity. Bear in mind that experimentation may run in several countries, so it would not be affordable.

- Is there any problem if I use a third company for this task even if the provided sensors data is stored in an intermediate infrastructure?

There is not problem in hiring third party companies. In this sense, please, do not forget to fill in the budget accordingly.

- Could anyone recommend me a sensor brand and/or model for installing sensors in car parks? I need to know whether the car park is free or not.

Sorry, I'm not aware of any ready-to-sell solution. Maybe other people can be more helpful here.

Best,
