LPWA (Low Power Wide Area - the wireless network that can cover a wide area with low price and power saving) is a wireless communication network technology for IoT. Similarly, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) realizes power saving with short distance radio. This IoT solution combines the two radio technologies together. It consists of "LPWA gateway" with LPWA / BLE functions, and "BLE tag" with BLE functions.
When a person, a car, or something with the "BLE tag" approaches the "LPWA gateway", it can be detected with the BLE functions, which will provide the access information to the cloud via LPWA.
By managing the place whereby the "LPWA gateway" is placed in advance, it is possible to identify "where" and "what" is approaching. This can be applied to various services or applications.
Parking space sharing service - Lending out vacant monthly-rented or personal parking lot, or vacant space as temporary use parking lot. It is possible to build the management system easily by installing the "BLE tags" on the cars, and the "LPWA gateways" in the parking lots to be shared.
"LPWA gateway" installed in the parking lot detects the approaching vehicles equipped with the "BLE tags" and notifies the cloud. You can see which cars, and where they are parked exactly on the cloud.
Identification of the parked cars and the start/end parking time
With the increase in the demand for delivery service due to expansion of the business from the Internet mail order, loss due to re-delivery in home delivery service is becoming a problem recently. Reduction of re-delivery due to customer's absence can be achieved with the Home Situation Management System.
Install the "LPWA gateway" at home. The returning of the person with "BLE tag" or "smartphone" with BLE function will be detected and be notified to the cloud. You can check who is at home from the cloud.
Identification of the person at home and the time he or she returns/leaves the house
In the actual service provision, it is necessary to be very careful in protecting and handling of the home information. For example, it is necessary to introduce a mechanism that enables subscribers to control the disclosure party, such as limiting the disclosure party to only a specific home delivery service company.
Murata LPWA Module (low power consumption; wide range communication) couples with Murata BLE Module (low power consumption; short range communication) - We propose this solution that combines the features of both companies.
With the cooperation with IoT / M2M cloud platform "CUMoNoSU", IoT cloud system can be easily constructed.
*We do not sell "LPWA/BLE Tag Linking Solution" as a finished product. This is just an example of how Murata products are used in actual applications.
