The Port of Huelva’s innovation challenge
The Port of Huelva needs a non-point fog sensor to report the visibility meters, a need that has not yet been covered by the market but that we are sure that the entrepreneurial ecosystem of La Lonja can address.
The weather effect that most affects the Port of Huelva is fog. This phenomenon can lead to its closure a certain number of days per year on a recurring basis, because of the impossibility of pilots to board and carry out their work.
In this regard, it is necessary to have a clear measurement of the fog in the pilots’ boarding area, so the density of the fog can be known in advance for decision making.
Therefore, it will be necessary to have a fog sensor which sends back a measure of meters of visibility, so that objective values of the density of the fog can be obtained.
The sought solution will need to be integrated through NGSIv2 with a FIWARE Platform, in which at least the destiny )in meters of visibility and location) will be loaded.
With the solution resulting from this first innovation challenge, the Port will gain competitiveness in the management of the traffic and in the provision of services to users. Will you help us?
