Luka Mustafa, Founder and CEO, Institute IRNAS

Studying wildlife in remote areas of the world, with a goal of implementing informed conservation strategies, required a simple and time-efficient method to build a network covering vast inaccessible areas. As an answer we have developed a bundle of solutions – from animal trackers and static sensors to drone automated signal coverage mapping across water, tree-tops and other inaccessible locations.

Thomas Telkamp​, Co-founder and CTO, Lacuna Space

The coverage of The Things Network continues to grow impressively. But there likely will always be gaps in coverage between the cities and in remote places on the Earth. Lacuna Space is flying gateways on satellites to fill in the voids, enabling monitoring in remote locations or tracking of mobile ‘things’, no matter where they are.

Introduction to Workshops

13:30 – 15:00

Lunch

Workshops

The afternoon hand-on sessions designed for the participants to gain the right skillset to develop real LoRaWAN products and services will be running in three parallel tracks.

As well, you will be able to get to know your MicroClimate sensor at the microclimate.network info point throughout the afternoon.

  • Track A: Network & Cloud Explore building robust networks. Envision and implement cloud integration and deliver value to the customer.
  • Track B: Devices Explore hardware implementations of LoraWAN devices.
  • Track C: Education/Mixed Empower the next generation of engineers to build solutions with LoraWAN.
  • microclimate.network info Point Get to know your MicroClimate sensor

15:00 – 18:20 // microclimate.network Info Point

Dr. Tomaž Šuklje,
Co-founder, Lecturer and Researcher, microclimate.network initiative

At microclimate.network info point you will get more details on how to get around the microclimate.network platform. Learn how to configure your own MicroClimate sensor. You will also get instructions how to install the MicroClimate Sensor at your favourite micro location.

Steve Roberts, Technical Director, RECOM group

Battery-powered IoT nodes need to run reliably for a long time without changing batteries.

Coin cells don’t have enough capacity to run a LoRaWAN transmitter for more than about 70 days. Multiple battery packs are expensive. So what can be done to get years of life from a single battery? Which techniques work and which don’t?

Thomas Kupfer, Marketing Manager Emech Central Europe, Avnet Abacus

Starting with antenna basics, this workshop intends to provide an overview on antenna types and solutions for ISM Band based wireless applications. It covers important parameters for selection of appropriate antennas and shows what has to be considered when datasheets are compared. Another topic will be antenna positioning and its connection to the active part of electronics.
