Join u-blox at Embedded World to test yourself against high precision technology, control a mesh network, and light up the night!

Join u-blox at Embedded World 2018

With the recently launched u‑blox F9 platform, we’re taking high precision positioning technology to the next level. Join us at our booth for a fun demo that lets you test yourself against precision automation to experience its benefits first‑hand. Our team of sales and support engineers will bring you up to speed on the potential of this groundbreaking technology – the first of its kind to offer centimeter‑level positioning accuracy for mass market applications. Embedded World is the very first opportunity to learn more about the next‑generation applications u‑blox F9 enables, and how it can help you to improve your offering.

Embedded World 2018 u‑blox group photoBy now, you may have heard about capillary mesh networks and their promise to wirelessly connect billions of connected “things.” But have you ever run one yourself? And how do they work? To show you, we partnered with Treon, Wirepas, and Wapice to set up a sensor mesh network that uses a capillary gateway to connect to the cloud. Fitted with u‑blox NINA‑B1 modules, the sensor nodes monitor indoor environmental quality and use Wirepas Mesh to connect to each other and to a Treon Gateway, which transmits the data to a Wapice IOT‑TICKET cloud platform – for example, over the NB‑IoT or LTE Cat M1 network using a u‑blox SARA‑R4 module. Come see us at our booth and we’ll be happy to give you an overview of new markets opportunities in emerging building, industrial, and smart city applications that capillary networks enable.

Cities are an arena that is already being transformed by the Internet of Things. This year, we partnered with FlashNET to show you how a smart street lighting platform leverages wireless connectivity provided by our ultra‑compact SARA‑R412M multi‑mode module to make cities safer and more sustainable. In addition to enabling autonomous operation, remote monitoring, and predictive maintenance of streetlight networks, Flashnet’s inteliLIGHT® streetlight controller use the SARA‑R412M to establish secure cellular communication with established smart city cloud platforms over NB‑IoT or LTE Cat M1 and 2G networks, enabling wide‑ranging smart city applications. You’ll also find out more about how our SARA‑R4/N4 module series provides the technological flexibility you need to develop global smart city solutions.
