Anchormen built an Azure Data Hub to store, clean, and analyze all types of data received by the customer in a central place which is then capable of providing insight to stakeholders via a number of dashboards. The Data Hub uses Azure services and best practices such as the IoT Hub for device management, Cosmos DB to store the data, serverless Functions for processing, and Azure Event Grid messaging functionality. Initially used by the Analytics team at Louwman, the question then became, “What else can we achieve with this data?”
After providing several use cases, it became apparent that there is a lot of potential with streaming data from Welzorg’s scooter fleet. The next step was to connect the Data Hub to the Scooters. The ambitious project was done in collaboration with several parties. Louwman providing the infrastructure, IVRA Electronics providing the scooter batteries supplemented with sensors for carrying the incoming data from Welzorg’s scooters, Vodafone used as the carrier IoT network, and of course Anchormen to put all the parts together.
