Mapotic and Hardwario cooperate to display sensor IoT data in an attractive manner

Hardwario innovates many industries with smart IoT sensor devices. One of them is smart cities, which thanks to intelligent technologies can save energy and increase people’s standard of living. In cooperation with Mapotic, a new service was created, with which sensor data can be effectively used on the map.

The concept of smart cities uses digital, information and communication technologies to improve the quality of life in cities. It focuses on the efficient use of existing resources, the search for new resources, the reduction of energy consumption, the elimination of environmental burdens, the optimization of transport and data sharing for public purposes.


Hardwario is a Czech IoT startup bringing innovations to various sectors using new generation low-energy IoT devices.  It focuses primarily on low power devices and networks, that bring IoT to a number of new areas where it couldn’t be applied before – from Industry 4.0 to smart cities.

Benefits of the joint Hardwario and Mapotic solution
  • automated data transfer from sensors to map
  • possibility to add additional information related to the location
  • statistics and clear display of real-time values ​​from individual locations
  • use in smart cities, logistics, industry 4.0 etc.

“Mapotic is an ideal platform for displaying data from all of our devices that have a relationship to the location.”

Alan Fabík, Hardwario founder

Objective of the project: Creating a connection of cloud IoT services including the ability to display sensor data on a map in real time

For the smart cities project it was necessary to provide a clear visualization of the sensor outputs on a map. It was also necessary to create extensions that would allow the connection of sensors from individual locations and clearly visualize sensor data, including detailed graphs with value history.

Another important goal of the project was creating the possibility to perform various analyzes and predictions based on the data obtained. These predetermine the solution for use in public and private services, from public space maintenance to monitoring, for example in transport or industry.

Challenges we faced while working on this project

An automated link between the Hardwario cloud and a map visualization platform built to handle millions of records
Automated data processing from several sensors located in the device and continuous display of the results in real time
Graphical representation of sensor values using graphs
Ability to add other relevant information to the locations, for example, measured variables or data added by administrators

Implementation: Easy and attractive visualization of geographically relevant outputs

Hardwario innovates the IoT segment with advanced devices that last up to years of operation without battery replacement thanks to Low Power technology. An example is the Chester device, suitable for monitoring and sending values ​​from various locations, which we used in the pilot phase of the joint project.

Data API bridge that converts and processes data for Mapotic

When the device is activated at a given location, sensor values ​​are sent to the cloud service (IoT Hub) on Hardwario’s side at regular intervals. There is an API bridge that converts and processes this data to allow them to be displayed in Mapotic. This can be data on current temperature, humidity, reading time, battery status of the device, etc.

Ability to send additional information to meet the needs of other fields

If necessary, the spectrum of information sent can be further expanded and different information can be transmitted. For example on air quality (dust particles, CO, SO2), pressure, light conditions, noise and much more if required by the current project.

Extension and connection to other systems

For individual measurements from sensors it is possible to set value limits, that will, for example, send a notification to the administrators, etc. The displayed datasets can easily be extended with additional information, and additional information can be added to the sensors. Whether manually (notes, comments on operation), or by linking with other systems.

Easy to use daily and monthly charts for practical use

Thanks to the Mapotic platform we created an extension displaying the measured values ​​in well-arranged daily and monthly graphs. This page can be embedded in any website or application separately. Thus, the municipality can integrate these charts directly into its website and make them accessible to its inhabitants.

Telemetry and display of data from sensors and devices in real time on maps

The result: A tool for better monitoring and decision making not only for smart cities

By connecting the Hardwario and Mapotic platforms, a service has been created that displays sensor data in a new context. It is suitable not only for smart cities, but can also be used in industry, agriculture and social services.

Key benefits of sensor data visualisation solutions
  • easy and clear visualization of sensor data on a map
  • transfer of all readings from sensors to the map in real time
  • overview of individual locations
  • graphs enabling closer analysis of values ​​at individual locations
  • Easy integration of individual locations within web presentations and applications
  • Simple display of current measurements on public digital bulletin boards such as “city lights” or “digital signage”

European structural and investment funds Operation programme Prague – Growth Pole Czech Republic.

In 2020, the company Mapotic, s.r.o received support from the European Structural and Investment Funds, implemented through the Operational Program Prague – Growth Pole of the Czech Republic and drawn through II. call of specialized vouchers (reg. no. CZ.07.1.02 / 0.0 / 0.0. / 16_027 / 0000607). The support was aimed at the participation of the Mapotic s.r.o. at the Prague implementation site in order to increase the competitiveness. The expected output is innovation and launch of other services and products of the company.
