The CEO of Sensfix, Balaji Renukumar, had a riveting conversation with Dana Blouin at the radio program “The Future of Businesses in South East Asia” on the future of business, particularly focusing on the transformative power of the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI in the context of automation and integration.
The journey of Sensfix is one of inspiration, ignited by personal challenges and driven by the quest to innovate. Stemming from experiences in the energy sector, the core idea was to smartly maintain city assets like streetlights and expand it to other urban fixtures. The goal? Auto-detection of failures and maintenance needs without any intervention from asset owners. This realization led to the development of the Sensfix cloud, a mobile app, and a web platform. Integrated with state-of-the-art IoT sensors, they presently manage over 600 assets across 50+ townships in three distinct countries.
The standout feature? Assets, be they streetlights or traffic lights, have the capability to immediately report any malfunction to their owners. And it doesn’t stop there. They can also automatically summon the nearest available service personnel for instant repairs and maintenance.
Sensfix’s innovations did not go unnoticed. Based on the solutions and their potential, the Malaysian Government extended an invitation to Sensfix to conduct a Proof-of-Concept in Kuala Lumpur, targeting the repairs and maintenance of smart city assets. It’s a proud testament to our team’s dedication and our commitment to push the boundaries of what’s possible with IoT in the urban landscape.
