By embracing new technologies Vortex IoT offers tailored solutions for delivering cost effective deployments and evidence based interventions to asset, device and resource management that will enrich any organisation's decision or command & control solution and capabilities. Our IPR and innovations include a blend of intuitive cloud and fog-based systems, Edge Computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and blockchain security combined with bespoke IoT sensor design capabilities.

Vortex IoT combines cloud capabilities with business intelligence and bespoke design of low-power wireless sensor networks to deliver step change enablement to operations management.

Air Quality Monitoring (AQM)

LiPAPS is Next Generation Cleantech, hyper-local Particulate Matter Sensor for industrial and Smart City applications.

Integrated Smart Parking System

OptiPark turns existing light poles into smart IoT nodes delivering new urban datasets.

Rail RCM Solution

RODIO (Railway Optical Detection of Intrusions and Obstructions) is a RCM solution for detecting obstacles on rail tracks.


The World Health Organisation estimates that air pollution is the cause of 7 million premature deaths every year (4.3 million from ambient outdoor pollution, and 2.6 from household).


LiPAPS offers continuous, real-time, particulate monitoring for harsh environments, providing a network of pervasive and scalable sensors for smart cities systems utilising existing light pole infrastructure.

In total British drivers waste an average total of nearly 4 days every year looking for parking spaces. This has both a negative effect on the environment and our own customer experience.


OptiPark monitors parking usage in real-time, detects vacant on-street parking spaces, classifies vehicle types (petrol, diesel & electric) and measures traffic flow, noise levels and air pollution.

Network rail spends over £300m annually due to the impact on delay-minutes RCM challenges such as:

Tree fall, Rock fall, Trespassing, Animal intrusion, Landslides & subsidence cause.


RODIO is a scalable and cost-efficient RCM solution for detecting obstruction and intrusions for rail infrastructure.

Vortex Mesh Network (VMN)

Mesh networking is the backbone of everything we do at Vortex IoT. Our Vortex Mesh Network is an ultra low-power cognitive wireless network designed for IoT connectivity in harsh industrial environments.

Intelligent Edge

Our solutions are often designed to stream data for continuous monitoring. Managing 'Real-Events in Real-Time' produces significant volumes of data. We place ruggedised computing power close to our sensors to reduce latency and only send meaningful data to the cloud.

Digital Access Management

The SensSecure platform virtualises the physical key of a lock. It's the optimal solution to access control management through the use of IoT.


The Vortex Mesh Network is a self-contained, self-organising, self-healing and self-configuring wireless network based on Silicon Lab’s low-power wireless mesh protocols (Thread).

Key features include:

Vortex’ proprietary protocol offers long-range (>30km) using multi-hop messaging and minimises battery consumption using cooperative energy-aware networking by dynamic topology reconfiguration, dynamic sampling rate and dynamic resource allocation to conserve energy.



Intelligent Edge provides a private, low-latency and secure network of data centres physically deployed close to the sensor nodes to reduce backhaul traffic to cloud servers.


Our edge processing, storage and IP gateway capabilities are powered by DELL’s Edge Gateway and Servers. Vortex IoT and DELL have entered to a strategic partnership in 2018 offering joint Sensor-Mesh-Edge solutions for our industrial case studies.


The Gartner Group predicts that by 2020, IoT will reach 26 billion connected devices. The challenge is to capture, analyze and effectively gain insights from the massive amounts of data these sensors and devices collect, in order to drive your business forward.


An Edge Gateway, with powerful dual-core Intel® Atom™ processors, connects varied wired and wireless devices and systems, aggregates and analyzes the input, and sends it on. Because the Gateway sits close to your devices and sensors, it sends only meaningful data to the cloud or control center, saving you expensive bandwidth.



SensSecure delivers a flexible and scalable enterprise solution to virtually manage access control to any organisation's facilities.


From a full feature desktop application that is delivered as-a-Service with intuitive management dashboards, a full audit trail and complemented with approved apps downloadable from Apple App Store and Android's Play Store.


Key feature include:

Secure digital token Infrastructure based on prove Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

The Vortex IoT System

With ever more sensors attached to personnel, vehicles plant and equipment there is a greater need to secure and validate the produced data prior to processing.


The Vortex IoT System is a multi-layered, scalable and modular solution. The sensor layer can comprise of both “off the shelf” sensors and "bespoke sensors" whose data can be transmitted across our multiple networks.


Data collected by the sensor layer is passed to the Edge Computing IoT Gateway where it is securely validated, enhanced and responded to using Sensor Fusion, Machine Learning and AI. 


Actionable and structured data is passed as an output to either on-premise architecture or cloud storage where data analytics can be applied for visualisation and analysis of essential business and operational insights.


Ultimately real-time data can be presented securely to interested parties for management and operational purposes.
