An IoT network improves the efficiency of the infrastructure and logistics of the scout camp Kliffa
A scout camp that attracts thousands of participants is a massive logistics operation and requires an efficient infrastructure. In the experiment carried out by the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Scouts and Guides, a fast to set up IoT network monitors the infrastructure and logistics.
What kind of problem is the project trying to solve?
The district camp brings a total of 5,500 scouts and guides to the Evo campsite near the city of Hämeenlinna. The camp requires a considerable amount of infrastructure and logistics solutions: water supply, cold chain, electricity, waste water, vehicles, deliveries, etc.
In the experiment, a local IoT (Internet of Things) network will be set up to monitor the functionality of all this, making it possible for the camp management centre to monitor and control the consumption. Among other things, this enables a real-time reduction of the carbon footprint of the camp.
Objective: Quick to set up IoT network for events and worksites
The objective is to create a model for implementing a quick to set up a local IoT network that enables the monitoring of selected items in events or on construction sites, for example.
The idea is to produce a model that can also be used in processing a permanent Smart City network.
What is done in this project?
In the experiment, an IoT network and the required sensors will be determined, designed, tested and implemented for the needs of a district scout camp with 5,500 participants.
The network is used for monitoring the status and consumption of logistics, electricity, water supply, cold chains and waste water infrastructure, as applicable. A centralised data store, an overview of the situation and a visualised map view will be produced for the management centre. The information will also be used for calculating the carbon footprint of the camp in real time.
The trunk connections will be realised by using a LoRa radio frequency network that collects the data from industrial standard sensors. The implementation is documented and published for public use.
What kind of results will be obtained?
Knowledge-based leadership and management leads to savings, particularly in emissions and consumption. Continuous measurement enables proactive maintenance. At the same time, a tested operational model is produced for future use in construction projects.
The results of the experiment and the implementation model will be published and thus, anyone planning and organising a construction project or a mass event will benefit from them.
