Telia in project to digitalize underground mining

A project that makes it possible to digitalize operations in mines with the ultimate goal to increase safety and efficiency in the rugged underground mines.

The participating partners in the project are ABB, Atlas Copco, Boliden, Ericsson, InfoVista, RISE, Telia, Volvo Construction Equipment and Wolfit. The common ambition is to enable mining operators, maintenance personnel, equipment and machines from different suppliers to be connected and share data. The parties believe it is an innovative way of thinking that enables new services that can be used in other industries as well. Telia, Ericsson and InfoVista develop the mobile network built in the mine and test technology that, in the future, can be used in the next generation mobile network, 5G.

Nobina and Telia innovate on smart transportation

Nobina, the largest bus transport group in the Nordics, cooperates with Telia in Sweden to develop solutions for smarter, more sustainable travel and public transport in the future by analyzing anonymized mobile data. The innovation divisions of Nobina and Telia Company worked together using crowd analytics technology to test how the use of aggregated and anonymized mobile network data can be used to better understand travel patterns. The cooperation helps to gain better insight into how passengers move not only when they travel but also to gain information more quickly regarding new travel needs, to be able to offer better solutions that meet society’s requirements.

The results show that new technical solutions such as crowd analytics combined with data can contribute to many different improvements for society, such as improving mobility and communications.

Ecofleet and Telia team up to create greener car fleets

Sense is Telia’s cloud-based connected car solution.
A mobile app and a small piece of hardware give vehicle owners access to services and features such as vehicle diagnostics, positioning and 4G wi-fi connectivity.

Ecofleet is the first enterprise partner to connect to the Telia Sense enterprise platform with the pupose
of taking environmentally-friendly vehicle fleet
management to the next level. Data on greenhouse gas emissions based on fuel consumption is collected in real time from the vehicle. At the end of each trip, Telia Sense transfers the information to Ecofleet who compile emissions and event reports for its enterprise customers and keep a close eye on emission values and other vehicle data.

Using data to optimize driving, which not only reduces fuel cost but also has a clear environmental benefit is technology at its best. It clearly shows the ambition to create innovative Internet of Things ecosystems.
