Worldsensing’s work on tunnels and other infrastructure featured on Dutch cable TV


Worldsensing’s value in civil infrastructure projects including tunnels and railway lines has been showcased on Dutch television. Worldsensing Chief Executive Ignasi Vilajosana appeared alongside Jasper Schuur, co-owner of measurement systems and software vendor Geometius, in a two-minute video aired on RTL 7, a Dutch cable television channel.

“As a company, what we do is we provide connectivity technology to monitor critical infrastructures, for example dams, railways, metro lines, bridges, tunnels and also mines,” Vilajosana explains in the clip, which is available on YouTube.

The video, part of RTL 7’s Business in Europe program, which showcases companies looking to grow in the European market and brings them to the attention of investors in the Netherlands, shows Worldsensing’s IoT remote monitoring technology being used in a tunnel. Such environments are of growing interest for Worldsensing customers, prompting the launch of a tunnel-wall embedded Smart Tunnel Lining Solution.

“One of our biggest strengths is that we provide technology that is ultra-low power and uses long-range radio, which means we can deploy our devices in the field in an unattended way for many years, helping our customers to capture data in harsh environments,” Vilajosana says in the video.

Wireless Geotechnical Monitoring

Schuur notes that Dutch infrastructure is often aging and needs replacing or upgrading, enhancing the need for careful monitoring before, during and after upgrades. “Monitoring can you help you to say if it’s still in the right specs and if there are any risks in using the infrastructure still,” he says. “With the partnership [with Worldsensing], we are able to include all the data from different types of sensors in one software package, to get the end customer one overview of all the data he needs for his monitoring projects.”

Business in Europe has served as a Dutch launchpad for a variety of fast-growing technology companies. Other recently featured businesses include technology rental specialist Grover Group, mobile sales communication company Wiraya and offshore environmental data tech developer Eolos Floating Lidar.
