LoRaWAN is a networking protocol for connecting gateways and devices. • Excellent for transmitting small amounts of data over long distances with little power. • Helps solve the “data communication over wiﬁ is a customer support nightmare” issue. • Helps solve the “wiﬁ devices use a lot of power” issue.
which are picked up by strategically-placed The Things Network gateways. • Gateways send readings to The Things Network. • Application on The Things Network sends readings to Amazon IoT service where they are archived in a database. • A web application visualizes the archived readings.

Amersfoort’s custom board). • Look at a broader range of sensors (particulate matter, solar radiation, radon, sound, etc.) • Explore the possibilities of using LoRaWAN to manage water and electricity meters at scale. • Roll out devices to citizens and start to gather data. • Continue to be curious.
