An associate professor at the Savoie Mont Blanc University, Sylvain Montagny specializes in microprocessor systems and the Internet of Things (IoT). In his role at the university, he is in charge of the postgraduate master’s program in Electronics and Embedded Systems. Montagny and his colleagues on the teaching staff of Savoie Mont Blanc University have created a course dedicated to LoRa® and LoRaWAN®, based on the curricula of the following courses:
An innovative software and hardware solution designed to enable cost-effective and energy-efficient asset tracking and management solutions, the LoRa Edge™ asset management platform addresses a wide variety of use cases and scenarios, thanks to the versatile and configurable components that make up the system. Furthermore, it uses Semtech’s LoRa Cloud™ geolocation capabilities to significantly reduce power consumption by determining asset locations in a cloud-based solver.
A wealth of information about the LoRa Edge asset management platform is available. Here, we’re packaging it all up in one place to make finding what you need easier.
Sylvain Montagny, Associate Professor at Savoie Mont Blanc University, is passionate about the Internet of Things. So passionate, in fact, that he teaches a course at the university where students learn to create their own Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol.
This week Semtech and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a collaborative effort, resulting in a new offering from AWS that integrates LoRaWAN® network connectivity with AWS IoT Core: AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN. A new way for customers to connect and manage wireless devices via the Amazon Cloud, AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN builds on the open LoRaWAN networking specification, which, in turn, is based on Semtech’s LoRa® chipsets.
Just getting started developing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with Semtech’s LoRa® ICs? Interested in how to build and deploy a device? We have a great technical paper that will walk you through how to build a device from scratch using off-the-shelf components.
The LoRa Alliance® is a global association responsible for designing, promoting and certifying devices for the open LoRaWAN networking standard for low power, wide area networks (LPWANs). LoRaWAN is an open networking protocol that delivers highly secure bi-directional communication, mobility and localization features used for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. LoRaWAN networks operate in the unlicensed portion of the RF spectrum. People and companies broadcasting using this portion of the spectrum do not need a license from a governmental body to do so. With 148 LoRaWAN network operators in 162 countries, LoRaWAN networks account for more than one third of all LPWAN deployments in the world, according to industry research firm IoT Analytics.
In the How to Use LoRa Basics™ Station technical paper from Semtech, Anton Beitler provides in introduction to LoRa Basics Station including:
The LoRa Cloud™ collection of services are designed to ease the development of common tasks related to LoRaWAN® networks and LoRa®-based devices. Currently, this suite of services includes the following:
As you may recall, in May of this year Helium, Semtech, Arm, STMicroelectronics, and the global developer community at Hackster.io teamed up to give developers a little extra incentive build LoRa®-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications using connected devices designed to make the world a better place.Overall, there were 335 registrants, contributing a total of 46 qualified contest entries, covering a variety of themes, such as:
We launched the LoRa® Developer Portal a little more than a year ago. Our goal was to provide a central hub for developers and solution providers in the LoRa ecosystem; a place to find education and training materials, best practices, user guides, and more. To this end, we have been providing the following resources:
