Smarter data for smarter decisions
Sentinel is a industry leading sensor designed to gather evidential data on the natural and built environment developed in partnership with Intel and AAEON Technology.
Sentinel is a standalone device that is easily deployed on street lighting and buildings. It monitors and classifies objects in its field of vision through the use of Computer Vision and Machine Learning.
Data is processed on 'the edge' within the sensor with anonymised data transmitted to SSE Energy Solutions Smart Infrastructure Platform. Data is visualised in the platform to give actionable insights to optimise energy infrastructure, road networks, and revitalise towns and cities.
EV charging infrastructure is a critical part of our energy network as we transition to a low carbon economy.
We're piloting Sentinel at SSE's EV charging hub in Glasgow. Here it is gathering various data sets including EV car queue length, bay blocking, and visitor flows to food, beverage and retail outlets.
