Ginger and Signalton collaborate to provide wireless sensor network solutions for the smart city through connected innovative vehicles. Ginger is a London based company that aims to transform local transportation using shared, low-speed, clean, electric vehicles such as bikes, scooters, and micro-cars. Signalton is an Ankara based company that specialises in sensor electronics, digital signal analysis, algorithms and software to provide solutions for sensor networks, IoT (Internet of things), and smart information systems.
Ginger's electric vehicles, equipped with Signalton's IoT devices, act as a mobile sensor network traversing each and every street in a city. Sensor electronics, analysis algorithms and embedded software incorporated into the IoT devices enable air quality assessment and noise level measurements in addition to the location based tracking of vehicles. Both temporally and spatially distributed data collected throughout the city can be analysed to find out about traffic status, congestions and traffic-induced air and noise pollution. Such information can then be used by local authorities to better plan infrastructure and traffic.
