Stimio offers remote monitoring IoT solutions for railway companies to optimise operations, enable condition-based and predictive maintenance, reduce safety risks and increase service availability for rolling stock and infrastructure.

Wirepas’ Mesh technology provides a scalable and cost-effective solution to connect and localise sensors. With a unique low power mesh operating technology, the solution allows the creation of fully battery-operated networks with years of battery lifetime. Associated with Stimio’s IoT edge software-driven sensor portfolio and cloud platform, the complete solution overcomes wireless connectivity issues when deploying several IoT devices in a single moving train. It allows device-to-device communication and remote control of connected sensors while saving battery consumption. As more and more use cases are aimed to be deployed in a single rolling stock, the Wirepas Mesh technology provides great outcomes for data collection and transmission.

David Dorval, CEO at STIMIO: “We are pleased to welcome Wirepas as a new network solution provider. Their mesh network allows us to answer the increasing demand for supporting more and more agile, efficient and power friendly architectures. Combined with embedded machine learning algorithms, it creates another major breakthrough for the railway industry both in terms of autonomy and scalability.”

“We are very happy to welcome Stimio to the Wirepas’s ecosystem,” said Jani Vehkalahti, SVP of Sales at Finnish-tech company, Wirepas. “Stimio offers a a wide range of solutions designed in a modular way, evolutive by nature, friendly to use and easy to deploy on the field. They have great technological expertise which combines mechanical and software engineering, wireless telecommunications, and data analysis. Stimio will be a strong partner to help predict failures, analyse abnormal behaviour, and give insights to understand root causes and solve the issues.”
