ThingWave is a technology provider for Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Our products and services can be used in industrial- and consumer-based applications. We provide a state of the art solution for ultra-low power sensing, mesh networks, gateways and cloud systems. Our wireless sensor can be used to monitor a large number of different physical phenomena such as temperature, load, forces, vibrations, etc. etc.
ThingWave has pioneered the use of IoT technoliges for rock bolt and ground support monitoring. Our platform can be integrated with diffeent types of rock bolts, and can send status information about elongation, strain, breakage, and seismicity to our gateway using a state of the art wireless mesh network. Our system have been field tested in active mines and delivers a monitoring with up to ten years of lifetime on each bolt. The bolts and monitored 24/7 and anomalies are detected immediately and reported back to our cloud system. From here, alarms are generated to the mine staff so they can take the correct actions.
ThingWave's vision on Industry 4.0 is to provide our customers with technologies and expertise on Condition monitoring, Digitalization of processes and mines, plus safety and security. Our idea is to help our custumers with solutions for reducing costs for maintenance, increased safety and security, large-scale monitoring of equipment, machinary, and others. ThingWave can also provide consulting services where we together with our customers deliver customized solutions for our customer's needs and requiremensts.
ThingWave winner of ABI pitch contest
The ThingWave's Industrial IoT rockbolt won the ABI pitch contests.
"We make the bolts smart. We have received a good response from the industry, and now we are ready to do little larger installations", says CEO Jens EliassoncloudGo to source

ThingWave is collaborating with the Boliden, Ericsson and Luleå University of Technology in the PIMM project
ThingWave is collaborating with the Boliden, Ericsson and Luleå University of Technology in the PIMM project to test the next generation of smart rock reinforcements. ThingWave's Smart rock bolt monitoring system has been installed in 400 m. depth in the Kankberg mine. The use of Ericsson's 5G infrastructure enables individual rock bolts to be monitored in real-time continuously. Any deviation in tunnel deformations is detected and alarms are generated within minutes.

Two research teams win SEK 400,000 each for innovation ideas
Two research teams at Luleå University of Technology has won SEK 400 000 each on a pitch contest for innovation in the mining industry – the ideas were the smart mining bolt ThingWave and the eco-lubricant SustainaLube.
Our product had a strong connection to the program call that was about investigating new technologies for application in the mining industry, and we were at the right level. It feels great to win this contest, it will be our second pitch win in a row now, says Jens Eliasson, Associate Professor of Industrial Electronics.
Previously, the group won the prestigious contest IPSO Challenge in the United States. The company ThingWave has developed a system that can lead to greater safety in mining. The mining bolt has a transmitter that monitors and displays certain errors, with the help of Internet of Things, for example, if the bolt is about to release. The team consists of five people who are researchers and entrepreneurs from Luleå.cloudGo to source

ThingWave has three different type of products that can be combined to create the optimal combination for your Industrial Application. The TW Mote is an ultra-low power sensor node, with high energy efficiency and fully customizable sensor platform. The next step is the TW Galaxy, a data collector and an analyzer that can check on real-time the data of all the connected motes. Finally, if you have a big network of motes or you require advanced processing, there is the TW Universe, a fully custom cloud solution that can handle all data and control all your motes remotely.
