IoT for Challenging Environments: Electrical Grid, Remote Areas and Animals

  • 13:00 - 15:00 • 16th April 2020
LoRaWAN surprises us often, working well in the most challenging situations. At IRNAS we design IoT solutions embedded in elements and building blocks of the electrical systems, power transmission components and expose them to direct lightning strikes. We work with partners to take LoRaWAN devices to the most challenging industrial and environmental conditions, and work towards achieving a lifetime equal to the object they are associated with. This talk will walk you through design choices of system integration, considerations to achieving very long lifetime, interesting lessons learned and it will also feature an electrifying demo.
