  • Remote data collection project to open new doors for flowmeter firm
    12 April 2018

    Remote data collection project to open new doors for flowmeter firm

    Mainstream Measurements Ltd has formed a £120,000 Knowledge Transfer Partnership
    (KTP) with the University of Huddersfield to develop software and communication
    mechanisms that will allow the meters to be read remotely, as well as integrate into
    standardised industrial control systems, such as MODBUS.

    The breakthrough will be a massive advantage for companies involved in applications such as effluent monitoring, water distribution, industrial flow and water distribution, who need to monitor flow in order to deal with issues such as blockages and flood risks.

    The challenge of the KTP is that there is no dominating data communication protocol in the
    Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, and this is particularly true within the water industry, using a cellular infrastructure would be costly and consume too much power, which is highly detrimental to devices running on battery power in remote areas.

    The LoRaWAN communication protocol could be the answer, and this is being investigated
    by the KTP. It is also expected that the KTP will help Mainstream boost its R&D capacity and add software engineering to its range of expertise.
