2021-06 – IoTLab at Parco San Rossore for the EU AFarCloud project

June 2021

L. Davoli and G. Codeluppi participated to the General Assembly of the European project Aggregate Farming in the Cloud (AFarCloud), Call H2020-ECSEL- 2017-2-RIA-two-stage, project ID 783221. The General Assembly was held in online mode because of COVID-19 situation, while, in the meanwhile, the Italian partners (UNIPR, UNIVAQ, RoTech, Archa, CNR, ESTE) met in the Parco San Rossore, Pisa, Italy, to perform maintenance operations and new deployments. In particular, the Italians have installed a new LoRaWAN GW (connected to the TTN public network) in the Marmo field, north of the Park. The system can provide Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN connectivity to nearby sensors 24 hours a day up to several km, thanks to the energy management system, the powerful solar panel, the powerful 5.8 dBi antenna, and LoRaWAN sensors.

Have a look at the team in action in the Parco San Rossore, Pisa, Italy!
