Mayflower to present at HEA Annual Conference

On Thursday 31 October, Mayflower Smart Control will be presenting a technical paper at the HEA Annual Conference, Exhibition and Awards Dinner 2019 at Celtic Manor Resort and Hotel.

Working in partnership with Vaisala, Ricardo and Slough Borough Council, Mayflower’s Senior Product Development Engineer, Muhammad Ali, in conjunction with partner representatives, will be providing insight into our latest smart sensor deployment.

Following a successful DEFRA funding application by Slough Borough Council, Mayflower’s latest smart sensor deployment will be focused around monitoring air quality and pollution levels in the vicinity of schools in Slough. The aim of the project is to monitor NO2 emission levels, created as a result of vehicle emissions during peak periods.

Patrick Mitchell, Head of Mayflower, said: “presenting a technical paper at this year’s HEA event is an excellent opportunity to provide insight into just one of the projects we are currently working on with our partners. Muhammad and Paul are looking forward to presenting the paper and will be available to discuss with delegates similar innovative initiatives enabled through Mayflower’s new smart city capabilities that can help them transition cities and towns towards the future.”

The Mayflower Smart Control team will be available throughout the day to exhibit their latest product developments, including interactive demonstrations of the new Mayflower Smart City Platform.

Stephen Stead, Director of Strategy and Digital Services for SSE Enterprise, added: “we have developed the platform to address a number of key local authority drivers. Specifically, the platform will allow local authority and third party sensors and devices to exploit the Zigbee and LoRa communications protocols provided by underlying smart lighting systems as well as additional protocols such as 3G and 4G. Its App Store approach coupled with third-party data feeds, will stimulate innovation in city services that utilise these sensors and devices. This coupled with the detailed analytics supported by the platform will maximise opportunities for service optimisation and cost reduction. We are very excited by this this and future planned developments, such as the connection from the street light to in-home devices.”

The full event day programme for the conference is now available to view online.

If you are attending the exhibition, please come and say hello, and don’t forget you can also vote for us as HEA-HEMSA Member of the Year Award in the HEA Awards.

We look forward to speaking with you on 31 October to help realise the future of Smart Cities.
