Make low-cost, real-time gas measurement a reality
This project responds to the problems that the gas industry often faces: the profitability of collecting data in real time. Gas meter data that was manually read by agents once a month is now collected by the NCU on an hourly basis, and sent daily to NICIGAS Stream.
The data collected is used to visualize and predict the amount of gas remaining in households, which allows faster replacement of gas cylinders and improves the quality of service to its consumers. In addition, the NCU also reports meter incidents. In the event of an earthquake, the gas valve is programmed to close automatically, bringing convenience and real-time security to properties. The NCU is energy efficient and should last more than 10 years on internal batteries.

New Technologies Let More Live The Off-The-Grid Life
While we tend to think of sustainability in terms of systems, communities and the planet, there is much to learn from the growing examples of individuals turning their homes into self-sufficient eco-spaces. Indeed, innovation is largely what has allowed them to disconnect.I'm interested
