Grove Group invited on UK DIT trade missions

Grove Group were privileged to be invited by the United Kingdom’s Department of International Trade (DIT) on two trade missions to China and Portugal respectively.

In May, the DIT invited Grove, along with four other technology companies, to present our work on IoT and Advanced Analytics to the Vice Mayor of Chongqing Municipal People’s Government, who was on a state visit to London. Grove’s successful presentation resulted in them being invited on a Big Data trade mission to Chongqing, China in October. At this trade mission, representatives from Grove were introduced by the Vice Mayor to six companies who are wanting Grove to assist them with their Advanced Analytics and IoT requirements.

Whilst in China, Grove visited the Xiantao Data Valley and participated in the opening of Thundercomm, a joint venture between Qualcomm and Thunder Software Technology Co. Ltd. Thundercomm will focus on developing products and technologies for local companies that aim to create the next generation of drones, VR devices and wearables, and robots.


Grove is working on a number of exciting projects including the correlation between air pollution PM2.5 & PM10 with the disease COPD.


After the success of their visit to China, the DIT invited Grove, along with six other companies, on a trade mission to Portugal. The purpose of the visit was for the invited companies to collaborate with Altice Labs, Portugal’s largest telecoms provider. The collaboration was focused around Smart Cities and IoT.  

Grove’s contribution to the collaboration is a platform that focuses on reducing the cost of maintaining cities. The system processes data from multiple sources, such as sensors or existing data, to deliver an optimised operating schedule using prescriptive algorithms with embedded machine learning. This system will help allocate omnicompetent teams more efficiently, reducing the cost of city maintenance. The platform will be implemented for a variety of services, amongst them waste management, asset tracking, smart parking, smart lighting and smart houses.
