Are you ready for the Internet of Counting Sensors?
Electric buses driving autonomous, Ride-Hailing services through apps, what will be next? We believe there should be an empty seat available for you.
Real-Time Ridership in the Cloud
IRMA onAir is the cloud-based, IoT operating system from iris that connects to counting sensors of your fleet. It serves as data source for your real-time apps and business intelligence solutions in the Cloud.
Bring your own Mobile Router
Use your own LTE mobile router for streaming APC data into the Cloud or use the IRMA Hub, created by iris.
A typical mobile router for passenger counting applications comes with GPS, GSM and Ethernet support.

Light-weight IoT protocols
The IRMA counting sensors speak modern IoT protocols such as MQTT and HTTP to send passenger counting data into a Cloud. Then the data is stored and made available to ITS and CAD/AVL systems.
MQTT and HTTP are communication protocols which are both used in the IoT domain for data transmission across wireless networks, such as GSM.
MQTT is an IoT publish/subscribe protocol that sends your APC data instantly to a Cloud-based. The data gets distributed immediately to third-party apps subscribing to it. Host your own MQTT Broker on-premises or use IRMA onAir SaaS in the iris Cloud.
HTTP is a well-known protocol based on a request/response approach, originally designed for serving websites. Nowadays it is also commonly used for IoT use cases. HTTP requires hosting an HTTP server in the Cloud, which can be acquired through IRMA onAir SaaS or hosted on-premises.
You build the App, we provide the ridership data
IRMA onAir is scalable and real-time. Integrate our counting data into your mobile apps and let your customers know which route to take according to vehicle load. They will be thankful and experience less stress during rush hours.
Popular Cloud BI platforms connect to IRMA onAir
IRMA onAir BI is SaaS brought by iris. There is a maintenance dashboard that helps with diagnostic analysis to maintain your APC fleet. Get rid of sabotage easily and know exactly when it and where it happened.
