We work to create a safer world
Monitoring what matters
Lives are at stake when large-scale civil infrastructures fail us. Investing in remote monitoring pays off. It is estimated that every dollar dedicated to making infrastructure more resilient generates $4 of economic value.
We have a global footprint in supporting the most complex civil infrastructure projects.
To ensure the quality of life for decades to come, solutions are needed today.
Most civil infrastructures across the globe are structurally unsound. Low-maintained dams, bridges, tunnels and mines pose a risk to our lives.
While climate change increases the frequency and intensity of natural hazards, many civil infrastructures are not robust enough to deal with increasingly severe, violent or unpredictable weather. At the same time, efforts to protect society from the growing frequency and severity of infrastructure failures are lagging.
At Worldsensing, we monitor large-scale civil infrastructure to help prevent life-threatening incidents. With the ambition to leave a mark for future generations and to positively influence human progress, it is our purpose to use our IoT expertise to create a more resilient world.
The global IoT pioneer
We are the front-runner in IoT remote monitoring.
Our technology is used across
mining, construction, rail and structural health
to monitor how geotechnical, geospatial and structural conditions impact civil infrastructure to prevent life-threatening incidents.
We serve engineering customers in more than 60 countries with a network of global partners across all continents to build a more (climate) resilient world.
