Internet of Things

Internet of Things allows connecting objects, machines, sensors and actuators of any type to the Internt. The wireless connectivity unfolds the possibility for many applications not imaginable a couple of years ago.

Radio technologies available today offer low-cost solutions that can be adapted to any application. To this aim, it is crucial to know and thoroughly study them in order to take the advantage in the most effective and efficient way. The spectrum of radio technologies for IoT applications becomes even broader nowadays. It is fundamental to follow this development in order to be able to make an optimal choice for each application and user need.

The analysis of risks related to the territory, precision farming and smart farming are considered  by the EU as priorityIoT applications. These application areas require long-range wireless connectivity for the acquisition of data from sensors placed on the ground, in rivers, in water. Sensors are often distributed over  mountainous or hilly areas,  which are difficult to access. Moreover, very often, they are deployed over areas of many square kilometers. In these cases the use of drones for the collection of data by means of radio technologies allowing for communication with ground devices at distances of 10 Km, is essential. It is estimated that the reduction of the operating cost, compared to the standard common means of displacement where human personnel is obliged to go to the inspected field, is considerably greater than the 50%. The drone can also be equipped with photo cameras to monitor environment and facilitate the inspection.

Smart environment

Similar approaches to the one IDESIO proposes, although with use of systems with shorter transmission range, have proved extraordinary for the monitoring and control of civil infrastructure, installations and other intelligent spaces. The drone in this case can inspect the structures from a vicinity and combine the data collected by sensors with thevideo shootings of the critical points. Where, instead (for example: indoor spaces) the drone is not necessary, the same device for the data acquisition via radio can be installed on the ground.


The inspection of civil and industrial structures such as wind power plants, bridges, dams, power lines, resort to the use of drones to approach quickly and securely to the points that need to be observed, allowing operators to get in real time images and information on the ground.

Including IDESIO gateway system in the pre-existing camera-based inspection activities allows operators time to get additional data collected from sensors located at the observation points. For example, a civil structure can be monitored by means of mechanical vibration sensors; nodes can record data on internal memory and supply them to the drone, and from there to the ground. The combination of image and sensory data enables optimal inspection.

Smart Farming

The discovery of animals scattered over a wide territory can often be burdensome and consuming in terms of time, effort and cost, particularly in forest environments or valleys. By equipping the animals with a radio node, a drone with a flight of a few minutes  can identify and localize them within an area of ​​tens or hundreds of square Km.


Vineyards, orchards, wheat fields. A perfect yield requires constant monitoring of the environmental and climatic characteristics as well as the crop quality monitoring. The combination of the sensors from the ground and photogrammetric collection capabilities guarantees the best control. Effortlessly.

Industry 4.0

Warehouses, depots, production environments. Wireless technologies in indoor environments allow the efficiency of space and labor utilisation. Without cables.

Smart Cities

IoT solutions for Smart City, Smart Building. When the drone can not fly due to regulatory reasons, it can serve the end user from the ground.
