Worldsensing joins European Union’s coronavirus response manifesto

Barcelona, October 2020

Worldsensing has joined public-spirited organisations across Europe in endorsing a European Union manifesto to freely share research work that could help beat the coronavirus pandemic. 

The manifesto is part of the EU Coronavirus response that aims to reinforce public health sectors and mitigate the socio-economic impact of COVID-19 across the European Union.

Worldsensing’s endorsement of the manifesto means the company has committed to fight the spread of COVID-19 by sharing any relevant research and development results from European-funded projects, via tools such as the Horizon Results Platform.

Worldsensing’s leading wireless solution, Loadsensing, is already helping many organisations to operate safely through the pandemic by simplifying remote monitoring tasks and reducing the need for site visits. 

Loadsensing enables real-time data acquisition of geotechnical, geospatial and structural sensors as well as remote device and network management, so tailings dams, bridges, tunnels and other important assets can be remotely monitored 24/7 to see if they are structurally safe and sound.

“As a business, we have been fortunate in being able to operate normally with remote working during the pandemic,” says Worldsensing’s CEO, Ignasi Vilajosana. “But, naturally, we are committed to doing as much as we can to combat COVID-19. We’re delighted to support this EU initiative.”
