Since mid of April Empa, Laboratory for Air Pollution / Environmental Technology, operates our LoRaWAN CO2 sensors next to their Nabel reference site to conduct outdoor calibration. The devices transmit readings over Swisscom LPN, based on LoRaWAN technology. In the next months we will roll out more than 300 CO2 sensors over whole Switzerland.

Check out our new demo together with OrbiWise. OrbiWise provides a full network software solution for LoRaWAN-based networks. Our sensors and application server fits perfectly in combination with the network server from our partner. The demo shows a piezoresistive pressure and temperature sensor for level metering applications like water supply, waste water, ground water or surface water.
On February 6th 2017 swiss television news SRF Tagesschau reported about our project Carbosense and presented our newest LoRaWAN sensor for CO2.
The focus of E-world energy & water is innovative solutions for the energy supply of the future - from generation, through distribution and storage to retail, efficiency and green technologies.In the area of storage, decentralised facilities and energy services, the trade fair is growing constantly.Numerous exhibitors present themselves at Germany’s largest Smart Energy trade fair with its focus on renewable energy and intelligent technologies.
We are sponsoring Make Zurich 2017
Make Zurich is the civic tech and LoRaWAN hackathon for a better city. It will take place from February 3-4.
It will bring together the local hacker/maker community and the city administration to explore new ways of solving the problems of cities with the help of open networks and civic tech.
There will be six real needs of different departments of the City of Zurich that could be solved with LoRaWAN and civic tech.
The nodes communicate using novel LoRaWAN technology. LoRa communication is an excellent candidate to realize such distributed monitoring applications. With its long range capabilities and low power characteristics it is ideal for the current monitoring setup.
Sensor data from our nodes are sent from below ground, inside sewer manholes and retention tanks to a LoRa gateway located on a roof of a public building. Gateway and network server infrastructure is operated by Loriot.io.
Visualization of sensor data, data export and data access run on our cloud infrastructure. We are looking forward to see first results from the field tests in the near future.
Yesterday a new LoRaWAN gateway was brought online by Swisscom LPN near Aarau (Wasserflue). Our node located in Fehraltorf recording precipitation successfully transmits its data over this gateway located more than 56km away!
The node is part of the research project Urban Water Observatory from Eawag, Department Urban Water Management in which the urban water cycle is monitored with spatially distributed sensors to answer pressing questions regarding future developments of water infrastructure.
The node further sends data over LoRaWAN gateway located on top of Bachtel since last Friday. Already before data has been received from the gateways on Zürichberg and Uetliberg.
It is great to see how Swisscom LPN network grows and data reliability and coverage increases.
