Product manager

« We design and provide monitoring tools for rotating machines. We know which data has to be collected and how to use it. But we had to lean on an experienced partner in the field of wireless data acquisition systems. HIKOB provided us with a reliable and robust wireless stack and we can count on HIKOB to support us towards ISA100 compatibility. »

« Together we developed in a record time a very efficient system for which the sensor and the wireless repeater are ATEX Zone 0 certified. We will continue to improve the solution to stay at the top performance in the market regarding technical features and cost effectiveness. »

« We are constantly looking for embedded data collection equipment that few companies are able to provide. Therefore, we chose HIKOB solutions for their advanced features in embedded systems and signal
processing. »

« With this system, we equipped the world champion Kilian Jornet in order to gather data on the level of impacts supported by his body and on his running technique. Thanks to HIKOB we have been able to develop a more suitable trail running equipment. »

« The HIKOB system allowed us to connect various types of sensors required to ensure the monitoring of the Parc des Princes stadium roof structure. Easier to install than a wired system, the choice of HIKOB solution turned out to be extremely beneficial. HIKOB perfectly met our needs, the quality of their technical support services has been very effective. »

« HIKOB enabled us to provide a reliable and efficient turnkey service. This successful collaboration encourages us to develop new projects together. »

Jean-Marie VILLEDIEU

Operations Manager

« We were looking for a wireless sensor technology as we failed to develop our own sensor internally. There is no doubt that buying an off-the-shelf system was the fastest way to achieve our performance and planning objectives. We selected HIKOB: They are experts in this domain
and they master such technologies. »

« Once installed in the pavement, no worry with the lifetime of the HIKOB WISE COW sensor: we are secured with a 10 years lifetime. It doesn’t require any maintenance, it is undetectable preventing us from vandalism.
It is a very attractive system! »

François CHARPILLET

Research Director

« We selected HIKOB because our requirements were to rely on a turnkey and reliable system operational 24/7. HIKOB has been able to exceed our expectations with a very innovative solution by succeeding to implement a network of 500 sensors embedded in the slabs »

« This is a unique concept at this stage. Since this implementation is a success, we are currently thinking about a new generation of smart slabs which could be commercialized on a larger scale. »

« I can say that HIKOB embedded wireless magnetometers are very simple to implement. It is very interesting for our department efficiency. »

« A vehicle presence detection system used for public lighting control is a very interesting lever in term of energy consumption reduction for a city such as Lyon. »

Jean-Claude TRICOT

Jean-Claude TRICOT

Associate Professor - Centrale Lille School

“We were looking for a miniaturized and  low priced system. Radar technologies are very expensive and hard to implement. HIKOB provides a small, efficient and affordable system. It doesn’t require maintenance operations as the wireless sensors are embedded in the road and have an autonomy of several  years.”

“We are thrilled to be under discussions with the french railway company SNCF, partner and first user of the technology to install new sensors on others railway crossings.”

“HIKOB INSTANT IRVE system is based on a technology whose efficiency has previously been proven in fields as demanding as road traffic counting and traffic control. It enables us to guarantee to managers the efficiency of the charging stations service and to offer to electric vehicles drivers a continuity of service. In addition, the HIKOB NETPULSE APP portable application facilitates the implementation and the action of the teams in the field. By integrating this efficient and scalable solution, in line with our SmartCity and SmartGrid strategies, we are greatly enhancing our level of service.”

“Convinced of HIKOB INSTANT IRVE system relevance to make the information of the charging stations availability more reliable and also very satisfied with the relationship and the support of HIKOB teams, I am relying on HIKOB for future deployments.”
