The new sensors will utilize a star network architecture with each
gateway capable of handling millions of transactions per day making it
an ideal system to easily deploy any number of applications from smart
metering to remotely monitoring train tracks.
“To realize our vision of a Smarter Planet, we must improve the usability of instrumented sensors and devices to securely and efficiently manage large volumes of data,” said
How does it work?
The additional range provided by LoRa, of up to 15 km, will eliminate the need for repeaters in these applications, significantly simplifying the system design and lowering the total cost of deployment.
The Semtech SX127x IC for the end nodes and the SX130x for the gateway are extremely low power, making the system ideal for battery operated devices. The adaptive link rate capabilities maximize battery lifetime, improve capacity of the network and improve scalability. The LoRa modulation also provides significant improvement interference robustness compared to traditional modulation techniques.
IBM Mote Runner is an easy to use, infrastructure platform for WSNs. The software is based on a highly-optimized virtual machine tailored from scratch for resource-constrained hardware environments with tight power and resource budgets. Uniquely, the platform even allows applications to be loaded and updated over-the-air even after deployment, similar to the way mobile apps are updated on smartphones.
The development environment of IBM Mote Runner comprises a complete tool chain to develop applications in high-level object-oriented languages such as Java and C#, providing support for source-level debugging and network simulations to ease application development and testing. A web-based deployment and monitoring framework, in concert with edge and backend servers, finally make IBM Mote Runner an end-to-end-solution for the development, deployment, integration and visualization of wireless embedded applications.
IBM Mote Runner has been widely used in a broad range of Internet-of-Things applications including the monitoring of snow accumulation in the
