Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Green Stream, a environmental technologies firm helping to build safer, more resilient communities through the power of smart technology, has incorporated Semtech´s LoRaÂ® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and Senet´s LoRaWANâ¢-based network into its autonomous flood sensor systems for use in coastal areas, including towns and cities, the company said.
Green Stream´s solutions utilize LoRa Technology, a proven technology leader used in IoT environmental solutions. Green Stream´s end-to-end flood monitoring solutions are designed using commercial, off-the-shelf ultrasonic sensors and easy-to-deploy LoRa-enabled gateways. The data is communicated over a LoRaWAN-based network provided by Senet, a provider of Cloud-based LoRaWAN services platforms that enable the on-demand build out and management of IoT connectivity.
The Green Stream LoRa-based flood sensors are autonomous, requiring no external power or wired network connection. Each sensor is a self-contained, weather-proof, solar-powered unit that comes with a universal mounting bracket and extension arm. These sensors are small enough to be installed on top of crosswalks, light or electric poles, and bridges. The rugged sensor gateway is positioned above a body of water or over dry land.
Semtech´s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers, and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.
Green Stream is contributing to the smart cities movement by combining Internet of Things technology with remote sensors, advanced electronics, distributed power, cloud computing, and data science. Their vision is to use our platform to provide micro-local environmental information for a more informed public, more automated and more thorough environmental assessments, and smarter, safer, more resilient communities.
