MAKING SMART CITIES HAPPEN
“With SIGFOX, FastPrk sensors no longer need any local network infrastructure, since they now connect directly to the FastPrk platform, via out-of-the-box connectivity”, says Ignasi Vilajosana, CEO of Worldsensing
Worldsensing is a technology company created in 2008 in Barcelona, which designs and develops pioneering wireless technology solutions based on machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
The company recently deployed the largest intelligent parking project in the world in Moscow (including 14,000 sensors ) by installing Fastprk, Worldsensing’s parking solution. After the first phase of Fastprk’s deployment in Moscow, in November 2012, Worldsensing became one of the 17 companies that, according to Pike Research, are shaping the Smart City ecosystem. Since then, the company has grown exponentially, selling its solutions in countries such as USA, Middle East, and China.
Fastprk also won the Stockholm Smart City Living Labs Global Award 2011 and the IBM Smart Camp 2010 London Award. The company serves three market sectors with solutions offering significant operational advantages:
1-Smart Cities, with Fastprk as the main product
2-Smart Infrastructures, launching Loadsensing, which offers sensing solutions that enable the predictive maintenance and monitoring of large infrastructures
3-Smart Acquisition, deploying Spidernano, one of the most advanced wireless seismic acquisition systems.
Today, the company employs 30 engineers and executives based in its London and Barcelona offices
