Our mission is to revolutionize the way cities and traditional industries manage operations.
Worldsensing is a widely recognized global IoT pioneer.
We provide customers with the tools to make the right operational decisions based on real-time intelligence. Our insights enable operators to understand the performance of distributed infrastructure, make predictions, improve efficiency and prevent disasters.
We use wireless sensor technology and real-time software solutions to provide operational intelligence to operators and decision makers.
This is what we call Connected Operational Intelligence.
We work with customers in more than 50 countries across 5 continents, reinventing the world we will live and work in tomorrow.
In the next 20 years, the urban population will grow from 3.5 to 5 billion people. Industries, cities, and authorities need to find ways to manage the ever changing demands of a world lost in translation.
To ensure the quality of life for decades to come, solutions are needed today.
We believe smart technologies can improve how we live and work. Operations based on intelligence have the power to change our lives for the better.
This is why we do not only help customers to transform their operations, we also thrive to constantly adapt, innovate and change the way we work ourselves to prepare our planet for the future.
Our purpose is to make operations more efficient and our planet more sustainable:
– By empowering cities to work more efficiently and safer through real-time mobility information.
– By making inner-city parking easier, reducing traffic jams, and helping millions of drivers to save time.
– By making critical infrastructures, such as bridges and dams, safe.
– By preserving monuments and our cultural heritage.
– By creating safer work environments and predicting landslides, floods, infrastructure fatigue and collapse.
