The next step in traffic informationSystems that deliver high quality data and are easy to deploy
Sensebit started out as a development project at the Ångström laboratory at Uppsala University. The team behind the project soon formed Sensebit AB as they realized the need for new and better technology for traffic data collection. The Sensebit team set out to create a system that was easy to deploy, and more cost efficient, while producing accurate traffic information. The result was low power vehicle sensors based on magnetometers combined with an API and web interface where users can interact with their sensors and extract traffic data. The system soon gained the attention of transport authorities, municipalities and consultancy companies and is today deployed around the globe.
Innovation and sensor networks
The team behind Sensebit has since the start grown quite a bit with new members. The new members range from researchers within the wireless sensor network field to web developers. By combining experience and knowledge within these rather different fields, Sensebit has the ability to create systems and products that incorporate everything from extremely energy efficient circuits to intuitive web interfaces. Even though the team has grown quite a bit, our philosophy is to keep teams small but competent to be able to keep innovating within new areas and always deliver the best products in the field.
