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 is BI ready. Third-Party tools such as Microsoft Power BI Service connect to the Web-API easily to retrieve all the counting and maintenance data on a daily basis.

While we take care of 99% counting accuracy, you can improve the network, plan vehicle capacities and report to authorities.
