“We are delighted to have been recognised with this award for our work alongside our customer, the City of London Corporation. This deployment is a fantastic example of using technology for sustainability, another exciting use case for IoT applications. It highlights the flexibility of the Wi-Sun wireless network for towns and cities, who have invested in street lighting control and want to enhance the development of IoT sensors in urban areas quickly and cost-effectively,” said Mark Cooper, Solutions Manager at Urban Control.
“We are pleased to be recognised for our work with Urban Control on this innovative sensor network, which will help the City of London avoid disruption from climate change-related weather events such as flooding, heatwaves, and drought. This scheme forms part of the City Corporation’s ambitious Climate Action Strategy, which commits us to achieving net zero carbon emissions for our own operations by 2027 and supporting the achievement of net zero for the City as a whole by 2040,” said Keith Bottomley, Chairman of the City of London Corporation's Port Health & Environmental Services Committee.
