MoMo Remote Sensor

WellDone

MoMo (mobile monitor) is a low-power and flexible mobile infrastructure sensing device with an integrated GSM cellular connection.

MoMo is a modular remote data collection platform which can be used to retrieve sensor data and aggregate it in a central location. This data can then be used to visualize large infrastructure systems, identify weak points and individual failures, analyze trends, and inform plans for future development. It can also trigger automatic notifications to the right people should something go wrong.
