LoRa GeoLocation

LoRa Geolocation

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.

Why having a mobile phone won’t help you in an emergency.

“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.
