Adding machine learning to your LoRaWAN device

During The Things Conference this January, Jan talked about the combination of LoRaWAN and on-device machine learning (TinyML). This is an incredibly powerful combination, as to preserve power and bandwidth LoRaWAN devices often resort to sending very little data. A device for monitoring machine health by observing the machine’s vibration pattern might just send the peak motion every hour, discarding interesting potential fault states. With machine learning you can analyze the full signal on the device itself, and just send the conclusion (‘abnormal vibration pattern seen’) to the network.
