At the meetup on Monday we agreed that that we should work together to get the network of 150 particulate/air quality monitors onto the Lora/Things network.
I said I would look at how we retro-fit the existing monitors and test the software changes needed for the esp8266 based devices to talk over Lora rather than wifi. I also said that I would look at what the next generation of monitors should look like.
Steve has been terrific and already lent me some kit to play with and is arranging for a permanent Lorix gateway to be installed on my house to cover the rivelin valley.
However, this is still quite a lot of work, so I think we will need to work together. I've started talking about what we need to in 2 places:
- the Sheffield Digital internetofthings slack channel - if you're not already on that platform, you can sign up at https://sheffield.digital/slack/
- a trello board to help us manage and collaborate around tasks - you can sign up for that using this link https://trello.com/invite/b/wqQr3Aba/91d686c972070b5099c304027f32da53/cleanair-thingsnetwork
Feel free to join in the conversation and help us get the biggest network of air quality monitors on the biggest Things Network in the UK.
