LoRa pilot

Published: Thursday, 09 February 2017

8th of feb 2017 - ComResult and partners launched a LoRa pilot in Drenthe (Netherlands) to field test the in-house developed LoRa node. LoRa (Long Range) is the latest 'Internet of Things' (IoT) technology which allows to connect physical 'things' to the internet.

Our state-of-the-art LoRa node allows real-time monitoring of groundwater wells and rain meters and is capable to communicate over long distances (10 km or more). Of course it is designed for low-power consumption (battery lifetime of several years) which lowers maintenance costs and adds value to the end-user.  For the pilot LoRa coverage was created in the pilot area, thereby using the TTN network. 

 For this project a corporation was established between Ultracasting, Calcoric and Empowernow in 2016.

An article about our IoT pilot was published in the "Dagblad van het Noorden" newspaper (Dutch article - here). For more information please contact us.
