Talk: THE FINAL FRONTIER: LoRa® CONNECTIVITY EVERYWHERE
The coverage of The Things Network continues to grow impressively. But there likely will always be gaps in coverage between the cities and in remote places on the Earth. Lacuna Space is flying gateways on satellites to fill in the voids, enabling monitoring in remote locations or tracking of mobile ‘things’, no matter where they are.
We will describe the recent advances in satellite technology that have made this economically feasible, and also describe the technical challenges to be overcome, for example: establishing links over hundreds of kilometres and Doppler effects.
We will describe the results from experiments with our first satellite and also the trials that we will be performing later this year once the next three satellites are in-orbit.
Talk: How to create a better AI (Provisional)
An exploration of how data from IoT can lead to improvements in AI by overcoming the historical biases and flawed methods that current algorithms have been built from.
Talk: Using LoRaWAN-collected data to build a digital twin
With LoRaWAN, and TTN, it’s relatively easy to collect a lot of data from a multitude of sensors, but what are you actually doing with this data?
How are you using this data to gain meaningful insights into your monitored system?
The use of Digital Twins is a hot topic in IoT and in this presentation David will go through what a Digital Twin is, the collection of large-volumes of LoRa data and then building a simplified Digital Twin of the monitored systems to gain better understanding of the overall environment.
Workshop: Installing and configuring InfluxDB to Collect, Store and Visualize IoT Data
IoT data is, by its very nature, Time Series Data, and for that, you need a Time Series Database to collect, store, visualize and react to your data.
In this workshop I’ll get you up and running pulling all your TTN data into InfluxDB and creating both visualisations and alerts based on the incoming data.
Talk: DIY LoRa from Orbit
FossaSat-1 is a 5cm sided pocketqube satellite developed by Fossa Systems, a non profit juvenile association based in Spain and dedicated to the development of picosatellite technologies.
FossaSat-1 will test LoRa IoT telecommunications from space without the need of any ground infrastructure. $5 transcievers with monopole antennas at 10mW will be capable of connecting to the fully free and open network. FossaSat is a fully open source project developed by a group of Students from all over the world. Fossa aim to democratise access to space by reducing launch costs and democratise access to IoT by reducing necessary ground infrastructure.
This talk will also cover some of the less known characteristics of LoRa regarding its long range and behaviour at extreme settings (36,000km range at 7.8khz SF12 and TCXO modules) as well as practical tests beating national LoRaWan records.
Talk: The future of deep learning is 8-bit: Building smart sensors
Using optimisation techniques, machine learning models can now run on small microcontrollers, enabling raw sensor data to be turned into actionable insights locally.
This technology is the perfect partner to LoRaWAN sensors, enabling just the event metadata to be transmitted.
This workshop talks about hands-on low level Embedded engineering. It revolves around the problem of powering and running ultra-low power devices. It teaches you to respect batteries and how to test if they are up for the job. After attending you will have the confidence in designing your own Ultra-low power device. You will learn what to do and what to avoid.
What users will need to participate in the workshop
A bit of time (30-40 minutes) and a listening ear.
What level of knowledge / experience is required for the workshop
Workshop: 868 MHz antenna design
Workshop where we build a reference for each member to take home.
