Watch Irnas talking about Generic Node at The Things Conference
Irnas creates solutions for IoT sensing and edge computing by combining a variety of networks and using in-house built modules. Irnas LR1110 PoC incorporates Generic Node Tracker Edition design allowing it to build several applications using one device. Some of the Generic Node use cases include:
Indoor/outdoor movement tracking for retail: shopping cart, high-value product tracking, and more.
Asset movement tracking in logistics, warehouse facilities, building sites.
Alarm trigger: in retail stores, warehouse, etc.
Animal tracking on farms/in rural areas
Some visual demonstration of Generic Node use cases implemented by Irnas:
Tracking position of KORUZA FSO links
Asset tracking of car accessories
Monitoring of door usage
Irnas' LR1110 PoC optimizes a multi-purpose device to fit even the most robust industrial use cases. Generic Node and Irnas’ fully potted solution solves issues that usually come with single IoT devices: there is no need to reset your device or having a fully new IoT device for different use cases. It is easy to adjust a form factor to implement any of the above-mentioned use cases, as well as add energy harvesting or primary cell for a long-lasting solution.
“We have seen a need for a single-purpose device that tackles a particular challenge. The Things Industries have been developing Generic Node, which is a great example of a well-built design that allows modifications, but at the same time having a stable core. On that basis, we have created a robust version of this to put into an industrial environment.” Luka Mustafa, Founder and CEO at Irnas.
The Generic Node's source-available implementation allows for a wide range of integrations and continuous system development. The functionality of Generic Node may be used as-is or customized to suit particular needs. The device's on-board components are the product of a series of design decisions that emphasize security, low power consumption, and long range.
