Addressing personal safety in town centres with LoRaWAN
Student safety is a growing concern, with women being particularly targeted.  Nobody has invented a "creepy guy" sensor, but LoRaWAN sensors play an important role in helping university students feel safer on the streets of Reading (UK).  This talk describes how a 19-year old trainee's idea inspired Thingitude to work with local government and the university to deliver a city-wide network of sensors and MyWay - a personal safety app co-designed with women students.  The talk also looks at how making street-level data available on an open data platform can create wider benefits for the town.

5G or LoRaWAN? It is just LPWA…
The wireless landscape is ever-changing. The public networks are entering the 5G era, where everything from massive IoT to mission-critical communication will be under one umbrella, 5G. For years LoRaWAn and the IoT-technologies of 4G has been having a continuos tug of war. On one side, the LPWA technologies are grandfathered in from the 4G networks and are now a part of 5G. On the other side LoRaWAN, as is the only viable long-range LPWA after the Sigfox sunset in 2022. But is it a negativ tug of war? Are not mixed landscapes with several alternatives to connect IoT devices resulting in better technical solutions, one technology pushing the other forward. Would NB-IoT exist without LoRaWAN? So let us compare NB-IoT/LTE CAT-M1 and LoRaWAN and see what they offer. What about the · security · range · battery life · ease of deployment · roaming · capacity · cost of ownership -how do these and other key performance factors of the cellular alternatives compare to LoRaWAN? -can the IoT market be divided into different use-cases that fit one technology over the other? Or is it simply just different takes on solving the same problem? 5G development New European 5G standards, 5G NR+ that completely changes the 5G landscape as this is a non-cellular 5G standard. DECT NR+ 5Gs key metric is that it is a technology that does not need any existing infrastructure; it is instead built to be decentralised. NR+ is based on MESH technology; it should work autonomously without a fixed network and meet the need for massive IoT for companies that want to communicate with machines. NR+'s core values include becoming a democratised 5G standard and a standard that has both a low investment cost and a low carbon footprint. Like LoRaWAN, it utilises free frequencies. Is this possibly a new competitor to the LoRaWAN ecosystem?

Digitalising property services with IoT technologies and cloud-based software platforms
IoT technologies and cloud-based software platforms are enabling businesses to digitalise their processes and services; for Morgan Sindall we are using our own analytics platform, goldeni, to digitalise our property services teams. In this session we will explain how goldeni provides our property services team with remote insights into commercial and residential building health. We will showcase how by deploying IoT sensors and LoRaWAN networks in and around the properties we manage, we can gain insights into asset and building operations, performance, internal conditions and energy consumption. Thanks to our AI and machine learning algorithms, goldeni can determine maintenance requirements (prescriptive maintenance) based on need and look at asset operations to predict when an asset is likely to fault.   For property service team’s IoT technologies are facilitating a change in how we manage and maintain properties. It’s no longer about reactive or planned maintenance, the future is predictive and prescriptive maintenance.

Smart Valley - A digital transformation enabling resilience and sustainability in a rural community
Hope Valley is a ‘honey pot’ destination within the Peak District National Park. The current infrastructure is increasingly felt by a range of stakeholders to be insufficient to effectively support and manage the needs of residents, industry, farming and a dramatically rising number of visitors. A challenge that has been exacerbated by the covid 19 pandemic in both the short and longer term. The consequences of this situation is proving detrimental to the natural environment - which the national park status is intended to protect and enhance. It also reduces the quality of life for residents, the experience of the area for visitors and potentially the health and well being of both groups.. The areas of concern include; ● Transport infrastructure (Routes/footpaths/trails, availability of public transport, car parking, congestion) ● Pollution (air quality, noise, light pollution - dark skies, littering - fly tipping, fires) ● Information (advice and guidance to visitors and residents, signage and directions in real time) ● Resources (presence of emergency services, council officers, park rangers, residents, user groups and volunteer agencies) ● Investment - ensuring that the allocation of resources reflects the numbers of people in the area to support and meet their range of needs In this presentation we review the development of the Smart Valley project from initial requirements through current status, technology deployed, results and forward plans.

2.4 GHz LoRa in Global Logistics Use Cases
Supporting global transportation and logistics with a global frequency plan can be challenging if operating in the sub-gigahertz frequency domain. The allowed frequency depends on the region of operations, e.g. Europe relies on 868 MHz while US allows the use of 915 MHz. LoRa 2.4 GHz comes with the advantage to be a global frequency that only requires a single certification and connects the world for transportation, logistics, and warehousing use cases.

Building LoRa Applications with the Blues Wireless Notecard
When building IoT applications, it's not uncommon for projects to rely on multiple communications technologies. You may choose approaches like LoRa, Bluetooth, or Thread for local network communication, but if your devices need a connection to the cloud, another technology like Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Cellular is usually in play. The problem, however, is that combining these technologies can often be expensive, or require a mishmash of devices that are difficult to form into a deployable solution. At Blues Wireless, we're simplifying wireless with a combination of tools, products and services that make it easier than ever to build and deploy IoT apps using LoRa, Cellular, and Wi-Fi. In this workshop, the Blues team will walk you through the creation of a real-world LoRa-based solution that quickly integrates with Cellular, Wi-Fi, and your own cloud services.

You may choose approaches like LoRa, Bluetooth, or Thread for local network communication, but if your devices need a connection to the cloud, another technology like Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Cellular is usually in play. The problem, however, is that combining these technologies can often be expensive, or require a mishmash of devices that are difficult to form into a deployable solution.

Saving wild elephants using Digital Twins and Edge computing
We are saving the lives of wild elephants using edge machine learning and Digital Twin concept, which blends and correlates real-time streaming IoT data together with other inputs. It then applies machine learning, AI, and advanced modeling techniques to create a dynamic virtual model. This includes, real time tracking and predicting their next movement and geolocation (using behavior informations such as how they act when they feel safe, angry, protective, etc) which make our solution usable offline. Tens of thousands of elephants are killed every year for their tusks (WWF). The decline in tourism revenue due to COVID-19 is leaving African wildlife vulnerable to poaching and the number of killed elephants is considerably increased. The project was born from collaboration between InnoDeep and NGSDroneRED , sponsored by Microsoft and supported by AlbanuFondation South Africa. We are saving the lives of wild elephants using Edge machine learning and Digital Twin concept.

IoT to the Rescue: Saving the Apple Orchard
In the talk, we will demonstrate how IoT helps to prevent apple trees from dying off due to faults in the irrigation system. The benefits of using IoT are demonstrated in practical implementation in the apple orchard in South-East Slovenia that uses a timer-based irrigation system. The pain of farmers was not knowing whether the irrigation works or not. In spite of water softening, the system seldomly clogs. Due to the differences in soil type in different parts of the farm apple trees can have too much or not enough water. For both cases the result is the same - apple trees die off. LoRaWAN soil moisture sensors network provides the solution for the challenge. In collaboration with the ITC - Innovation Technology Cluster, we have employed TTN, a network of sensors, and insights platform. In collaboration with farmers, we have built the interface that gives just crucial data, since they reported that existing platforms are too complicated for them. The project will be upgraded with microclimate sensors to predict frost, for which active protection (water spraying) is used. The system consumes enormous amounts of water that cannot even cover the entire orchard. With the help of IoT and AI, farmers will be able to localize areas with potential frost and reduce the consumption of water for active protection.
