AUTOMATED RUTT DETECTION
The customer is a leading global supplier in farm management. Tritech, as development partner, has developed and deployed a robust IoT systems for automated rutt detection of dairy cows. This has lead to an optimization of milk production and profitability for the farmer.
RADIO BASED SOLUTION FOR RUTT DETECTION
In this project, Tritech has developed a new radio-based system for automated rutt detection of dairy cows.
The system is based on radio-based activity meters located on the cow. The device communicates with Receivers usually located in the ceiling of the barn. The Receiver are then connected via a "system controller" to the farm's "Farm Management System" where data is analysed to give the farmer an optimal rutt detection for each individual dairy cow. Through a repeater function at the receivers and an opportunity to place them in a solar powered outdoor cabinets, one also cover grass land farms.
Tritech has been technical responsible for all components of the system such as:
- Activity meter (placed on the cow)
- System controller
- Wireless, solar powered repeater
- Integration to Farm Management system
The products are designed for high volume manufacturing and are today delivered in large volumes worldwide. The products are designed for extremely tough environmental and certified to be sold globally.
The system gives the farmer an automatic rutt detection that reduces reproduction costs and optimizes milk production, and thus the overall profitability of the farm.

THE HOME DELIVERY OF TOMORROW
One of the key challenges for the transportation industry is to secure the transport from door to door, and given access to the final door.
Without a master key the transporter can be granted access for a certain purpose and a certain time. This can happen through a technology development where today´s and tomorrow´s access control systems can be accessible through mobile phones and smart wearables by delegating access to a certain user.
A smart lock can send an encrypted digital key to a user that is valid only at certain times on specific dates. The digital key is stored safely and securely on their mobile device. Easy and secure key management for everyone you temporally need to let in to your home such as food delivery, parcel delivery, the cleaner, etc. The concept is available for a number of use cases.
Tritech has since 2016 been involved in developing this concept together with the customer, The customer introduced the idea and Tritech was instrumental in verifying the technologies behind the idea. Step one was to verify that the technology works in large scale to the right costs and that services for different types of users can be created in a straight forward manner.
The main project is now targeting a limited roll out in 2018 and full scale roll out from 2019. It is about to build an end to end encryptions and security system which can grant access to different users in a flexible way – software implemented in end nodes, mobile app and in BE Access Control Systems, ACS, end2end. The ACS is the heart of the solution, which host and control encryption keys and access.

TECHNOLOGY FOR SMART ENERGY SYSTEMS AT RECORD SPEED
Tritech was asked to build the software for a communications hub for smart metering.
Together with several suppliers in a global project, Tritech has delivered a communications hub for gas and electricity meters. The communications hub communicate with a central system via cellular networks and wireless mesh radio. The communications solution will be permanently connected to the internet, it has been designed with extremely rigorous requirements for security, robustness and scalability.
Tritech's part of the solution has included the communication hub's core features, such as mesh technology for communication, security solutions for the Internet of Things, and how software can be downloaded to the communications hub during operation. With requirements on reliability and security.
The project has been challenging due to a short time schedule, especially when certain requirements were not set when the work was commenced and that the smart metering communications standards were not initially set. The work has been pushed forward in an agile fashion, where the system solution has gradually evolved. Over 2 years, a large number of Tritech engineers have worked to design and build the communications hub software. Tritech has been one of three software development hubs globally. The others have been located to the UK and in Asia.
