Connected Sensors

Cimes Connected Sensor

Smart and connected solutions for mobility and infrastructures

The connected autonomous sensors developed by CIMES measure the characteristic physical parameters of your equipment, your vehicles, and your industrial or architectural infrastructures in real time.
The key: ultra-precise information to improve your performance, increase your profitability and safeguard your assets.


Non-intrusive, CIMES solutions can adapt to any type of regulatory and technical environment, including the most restrictive: rail and air transport, load-bearing structures, etc.

Stand-alone battery life

With a long-lasting battery, CIMES sensors offer an operating time of 3 years without recharge, thanks to their exceptional energy efficiency (Wake on-demand process).

Safety and protection

Designed for demanding environments, CIMES connected solutions are fitted with high level protections: IP67, Atex, etc.


CIMES solutions combine the power of local broadband (WiFi, radio, bluetooth) and the omnipresence of low-bandwidth global networks (Sigfox, LoraWan and GSM).


CIMES connected solutions are based on measurements validated by advanced numerical models and a custom-made calibration.

CIMES connected solutions provide new answers for the rail and road transport, heavy industry and civil engineering sectors.
