Innovation: an anti-collision system for ski resort vehicles

23, Oct 2019 | Innovation, R&D

e-novACT develops an innovation based on IOT to indicate the proximity of vehicles on the tracks.

Every year many accidents – sometimes fatal – occur on the ski slopes between track vehicles (snow groomers, snowmobiles,…) and other obstacles. The e-novACT’s IoT study office has developed an innovative system based on autonomous connected objects that alerts the drivers of such machines.

Based on LoRa communication, it continuously monitors the proximity of an equivalent box and warns of danger by a visual and audible alarm.

The tests carried out this season in an Alpine resort have given full satisfaction and the extension is already being studied.

More features can be added. One example is the geolocation of the box, which allows better guidance of the emergency services in the event of an accident.
