Panel Session: Successful LoRaWAN product stories and implementations

As a participant you will receive your own LoRaWAN MicroClimate sensor unit to take home!

MicroClimate sensor units are used for air temperature, relative humidity and pressure measurements. Sensor units are based on LoRaWAN technology, which enables autonomous data stream on long distances (up to 10 km) and low power consumption. MicroClimate sensors use two AAA standard batteries, which ensures up to three years of maintenance-free operation. All sensors are connected to the open platform by default. Alternatively, sensors can also be integrated in any cloud platform.

The Things Network

The Things Network is building a network for the Internet of Things by creating abundant data connectivity, so applications and businesses can flourish. The technology they use is called LoRaWAN and it allows for things to talk to the internet without 3G or WiFi. The Things Network is built by the community with more than 42 000 members. Everyone can contribute by placing a gateway and expand the network. The more gateways are placed, the larger the coverage. At this moment, there are already around 3950 gateways up and running.


The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.


At Institute IRNAS we strive to apply the vast scientific knowledge to everyday reality by creating effective, affordable and well-tailored future-proof hardware products and IoT systems. We believe in an open-source world and sharing. We aim to empower the world with technologies that improve lives, let that be an advanced communication system, IoT device for specialized applications, open medical device or 3D bioprinting.
