Comcast and Universal Parks and Resorts are teaming to use low-power networking technology for Internet of Things projects at its Orlando location.
The Orlando resort plans to use Comcast’s MachineQ platform to enable quick testing and launching of IoT projects aimed at increasing efficiency at the park.
Wireless sensors throughout the park can detect temperature, location and energy consumption and can be placed on assets to be monitored, such as fleet vehicles.
Planned potential uses include smart outdoor lighting, tracking mobile vehicles such as golf cars and water leaks.
The Machine platform is similar to cellular or Bluetooth, but requires less power and can send data over wider geographic areas and into hard-to-reach location, according to Comcast.
