IoT technology for train corridor
0G network operator Heliot Europe and communications specialist Sigfox Ukraine have formed a joint initiative to expand the coverage of the trans-European rail corridor with IoT wireless infrastructure.
The aim of the expansion is to increase the transparency of cross-border goods transports via the rail network, which connects Western and Eastern Europe as well as Ukraine with the North Adriatic part of Slovenia via Romania, Poland, and Slovakia.
The technical upgrade of the corridor will improve the predictability of grain deliveries, the tracking of goods and the cooperation between railway and logistics companies, the two companies said. (ben)
