For a couple of years, Thaumatec has been sponsoring Team Projects Conference at the local University of Science and Technology; this year, Thaumatec helped to develop two student projects. One of the projects was LoRaMiG – LoRa Main Independent Gateway, which was chosen as the Best Hardware Project by the jury on the Team Project Conference. It was a great honor for us because the competition was tough and all the teams presented amazing devices. That’s why we have the need to mention the importance and more details of LoRaMig.
Thaumatec built the solar-powered Lora Gateway because we believe, that this device can solve a lot of global problems and help many businesses. LoRa is a low power, wide area networking protocol, designed to wirelessly connect battery operated devices to the Internet in regional, national or global networks. LoRa is the best solution for using a lot of sensors to monitor huge areas, for example, forests, crop fields and vast spaces. If we would have data from fire sensors from the whole forest we could predict it and prevent the destruction of natural environments. Another great use of solar-powered Lora Gateway is for optimizing agricultural results, an example of it would be measuring the humidity of soil for irrigation purposes and use less water.
