Kuzzle has deployed its IoT solution to turn Aix-en-Provence TGV into a smart station. The aim of this project is to enable the station's equipment and infrastructure to report information in real time on dashboards or on a mobile application.
The first phase of the project, implemented on summer 2018, only focused on station lighting to provide a mobile and web-based application for turning lights on and off and adjusting light intensity.
The second step, completed in February 2019, consisted of connecting other infrastructures and reporting real-time alerts in the event of a malfunction. Lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, elevators, sliding doors, escalators, electricity consumption and air quality are monitored.
For SNCF Gares & Connexions, the first challenge is to know the status of its equipment and whether it works or not. Then, it is "to understand in which situations these equipments start to dysfunction"
