MXC Improves Public Health in South Korea

MXC Improves Public Health in South Korea Greener and Safer Outdoor Space, Powered by MXC

MXC, EnLink, and MatchX are building smart city solutions to improve the quality of life in South Korea. Combined, these solutions assure Koreans that:

  • the air they breathe is safe
  • their favorite outdoor location isn’t plagued by mosquitoes
  • every possible step is being taken to evaluate the risk of impending earthquakes

This is blockchain at work, with full integration, and implementation.

No Mosquitoes? Bingo!

South Korean summers are full of sun, outdoor activities and picnics. Unfortunately, they are also full of mosquitos. EnLink’s IZAP Pro is an LPWAN enabled insect trap that collects valuable data about insects, and the surrounding environment. With sensors installed in over 13,000 parks, the collected data has the potential to provide unique insights about park pests in South Korea. MXProtocol enables these devices to list the data on the MXC Cortex (inter-chain data market). Data listed in the market can be used by developers wishing to give potential picnickers insight into mosquito levels in local parks.

Busting the Yellow Dust

Air quality in South Korea is a real danger to public health. Yellow dust from China’s Gobi Desert invades Korea, carrying with it, variety of pollutants including heavy metals, bacteria, and viruses. EnLink manufactures an LPWAN enabled fine dust sensor and alarm system that provides real-time air quality warnings. By connecting air quality sensors to the MXC Cortex, developers can easily integrate live, localized data into apps designed to tell people when it’s better to stay inside.


Ground-splitting earthquakes require groundbreaking solutions

Though Korea is relatively protected from earthquakes, it is not immune. Earthquakes in 2016 and 2017 demonstrated that new technology is required to assess risk and warn people when the probability of an earthquake is high. EnLink manufactures an LED light with a built-in earthquake sensor, making it possible for people to crowdsource the data needed to build an earthquake detection system. Integration with the MXC Cortex lists all of the data from each individual sensor on one platform for simplified data analysis and integration.
