For the second time at the Mobile World Congress, uRADMonitor now participated as a finalist of the LoRaWAN™ Challenge.
The event took place on Tuesday, the second day of the MWC week. uRADMonitor was presented in front of an audience of IoT professionals including representatives from the LoRa Alliance™, Semtech, STMicroelectronics, EBV Elektronik and others.
Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to WT | Wearable Technologies – the organizers of this event.
The big show
There were so many amazing things to see, ranging from innovative low power + high performance processors (eg. The Intel Movidius processors), focused 5G RF beams, IOT gadgets of all shapes and roles as well as many components for the new technologies entering the market (LTM Modems, other RF Data Modems, etc).
Last but not least, there was the glytering stuff as fell, in the form of fancy new phones (Samsung S9) , VR gadges and other consumer products.
The Romanian Pavilion
It was a place to meet friends from some of the companies that participated last year at CeBIT 2017. ARIES-TM took good care of organising the Romanian Pavilion at MWC, and things turned out really great.
Orange FAB startups
It was amazing to meet fellow participants to the Orange FAB program. Here’s BOX2M, a startup from Bucharest. Their presentation stand was collocated with the big Orange pavilion – a fancy space and an interesting display.
The uRADMonitor devices
Surely, some of the existing uRADMonitor devices were present at MWC. During the flight, a model D unit recorded all parameters, including aircraft location, speed, altitude and ionising radiation levels. This was interesting, as despite the missing internet connectivity, the SDCARD held all data until a connection became available upon landing.
The onboard GPS module functioned perfectly, including at altitudes above 10000meters. The Ionising radiation would raise with altitude, since the rarefied air would let the cosmic radiation pass unobstructed.
The model A3 got an even better exposure since it was presented during the LoRaWAN™ Challenge pitch, see the video at the begining of the post.
Will certainly be looking forward to the next editions of this impressive event.
