Alps Electric will be demonstrating its IoT sensor module, a combination
of sensor and telecommunication technologies, both of which are
specialties of the company, at the World Internet of Things Expo (WIOT).
Composed of small, low-power-consuming, highly accurate sensors and a
telecommunication module, it enables measurement of such environmental
data as atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity, and illuminance,
as well as 6-axis (acceleration and geomagnetic) sensing.
Verification tests using the IoT sensor module are already conducted by
many partner companies in Japan. A variety of IoT solutions based on the
test results, including remote control of agriculture and preventive
maintenance of factories, are being introduced at the exhibition site.
If you come to WIOT, visit the Alps Electric booth.
