After winning ‘Proof of Principle’ support in our IoT competition last year, Welsh start-up WaveReach worked with the Hartree Centre to cut an estimated 6 months off time to market for its new Lighthouse communications product, bringing the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) to rural regions with limited mobile infrastructure and Internet connectivity.

As well as trialling the product on a self-contained sensor network at the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory, the Hartree Centre assisted with integration and testing of security agents to make the communications even more robust.

“Access to the Hartree Centre’s outstanding scientific and technical capabilities has given us a springboard that will help unlock the huge business opportunities offered by the IoT.”
