Utilising a technology called LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) devices can be created inexpensively with massive range and low power consumption. This makes it ideal for the creation of sensors and devices that can be left in remote locations. This workshop is a practical demonstration that will take people through the process of building simple devices that can be connected to the Things Network.
Venue: Hebden Bridge Town Hall
Saint George's Street
Things Happening on 4 September is a one day symposium that will explore the potential of Long Range Wide Area Networks. From building the underlying infrastructure to deployment of sensors and devices, it is an opportunity to see what is being developed, and learn from the people who are doing it.
