LoRa® Geolocation is a new way to locate devices in rural and urban areas based on the LoRa platform. The traditional way to track a device location (moving or static) is to install a GPS sensor within the device. This is a common solution for 3G/4G GPRS trackers. However, for LPWAN solutions, GPS isn’t a good fit. LPWAN solutions by design are low-power, and long battery life (up to 10 years). However, GPS sensors are power-hungry and can reduce the battery life of an LPWAN sensor by a factor or 40-50.
You’ll feel proud when you see your kid all dressed up in their Halloween costume ready for Trick or Treating. Last year you were leading your little zombie around the block, now they’re going it alone with their friends. It’s exciting for them, but all parents worry when their kids are out alone after dark.
When there are no road signs for miles around, when you’re short on time or when you can’t work out how to provide directions to your current location, a GPS Tracker could provide the emergency services with just enough information. They’ll receive exactly what they need in order to find you – no more, no less.
“Despite the majority of us having GPS enabled smartphones, less than 1 in 20 people have a reliable way to locate their loved ones in case of emergency or concern. We still rely on SMS or phone calls to locate people, and this isn’t good enough”, according to GridLocate Founder Adrian Drewett.
