internet of things

The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as "connected devices" and "smart devices"), buildings, and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.

Event
Together with Waag, Internet Society Nederland organizes an evening about LoRaWan on 26 November 2015. LoRa is a new technology to connect devices on a long distance to the Internet. The LoRa-protocol (LoRaWAN: Long Range Wide Area Network) has especially been developed to meet the high demands of The Internet of Things. LoRaWAN is also very energy efficient. Objects are able to function up to three years on one battery charge.

With technology that is just a few months on the market, it is possible to build an internet network for things without 3G or WiFi. It reaches way further than WiFi, around 10-15 kilometers, and it does not need a mobile subscription like 3G. Next to that, the energy consumption is very low which makes devices last three years on a single charge. This technology is called LoRaWAN™, an acronym for Long Range Wide-area network.

 

Project
