22/05/2019 - ThingWave tests the world's first 5G-connected rock bolt platform

Last week, ThingWave together with Ericsson, Boliden and LTU Business, tested our new 5G platform for Digitalized Ground Support.

The use of 5G enabled our low-power IoT platform to transmit status information from rock bolts to our cloud server.

This gives real-time decision support to mining companies so they can provide a safer working environment and achieve higher efficiency.

08/03/2016 - 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.
