In theory, cities will use the data generated to implement new programmes designed at improving the health of citizens

Internet of Things (IoT) enabler Telit Communications Plc (LON:TCM) has designed a wireless sensor to be used in robotic lawnmowers made by Swedish outdoor power products giant and Flymo owner, Husqvarna.

The device will allow cities which use the lawn mowers to maintain their green spaces collect data about the environment such as air quality, water and noise pollution and sound levels.

By being able to do both things at once, Telit said local authorities would save time and money.

Telit has built the sensor box which sits on top of the mower and uses the AIM-listed firm’s HE910 cellular module to transmit the data. The Telit IoT Platform then “seamlessly” connects, manages and delivers the data in a ready-to-use format.
