Why the name niosense? What does he mean?

The name niosense was inspired by the element niobium (Nb) combined with the word sensor. Niobium is a metal which, added in small quantities to alloys, significantly improves their resistance to high temperatures. At niosense, that's what we do: we add a small amount of high-level intelligence to the city's sensor chain to induce major impacts.

What is the meaning of the niosense logo?

The niosense logo separates the two components of the name using two different colors to clearly identify the application of each component to form a complete solution. The dot in the center of the n represents the human and the n itself represents the extension of that human to increase his presence and interactions with his environment.

The simplicity of the lines of the custom font demonstrates our commitment to making every project simpler and more efficient.

Overall, the niosense logo describes our identity and our mission to make cities better for all citizens through the use of innovative technologies and placing people at the center of all strategies.
