Smart Industrial Control
Industrial operations can benefit from the deployment of IoT-connected sensors for various always-on monitoring functions. Due to the long range, low power, and long battery life of LoRa®-based devices, sensors in manufacturing plants or mobile industries can relay critical data to a LoRaWAN® network where it can be analyzed and businesses operations can be optimized.

Building an Asset Tracking Solution Using LoRaWAN with Semtech LoRa Cloud and AWS IoT Core for LoRaWANLoRaWAN has been applied to a variety of applications including smart water metering, smart buildings, safety and compliance monitoring, smart agriculture, health monitoring, smart electrical metering, construction and mining monitoring, and smart homes. One of the most critical applications where the low-power, battery-operated advantages of this approach is of greatest value is asset tracking. The low power and long range of LoRaWAN lend themselves to asset tracking applications in a complementary fashion. Semtech’s LoRa Edge (LR11xx) chipset provides a comprehensive solution which solves for indoor and outdoor location by incorporating both GNSS for outdoor and Wi-Fi scanning for indoor location. It achieves this with 10x lower power than traditional GNSS-based solutions, using a combination of compute on the chip and cloud. Read more
