Innovation in mobility - eletricity reading and registering via GPRS
Posted on 1-Jul-2003 20:37. | Tags Filed under: News.



Found this report on the NZ Herald: "A mobile Wap application and open source software is transforming the task of electricity meter reading and showing the efficiencies wireless can bring to companies with technicians working in the field.

West Auckland-based Electricity Management Services (EMS), has traded paperwork for wireless records updates as its technicians install and maintain thousands of electricity meters for clients such as Mercury Energy.

Using Siemens handsets, the technicians connect to a Wap portal, sending data about power usage as measured by the meter, the status of the job, and details of the work carried out, over Vodafone's GPRS network."

Much more information in the link below.
