Winning projects were chosen from three different categories: Healthcare, Agriculture and People's Choice. Two LoRa-based applications, Vital Signs and Field Vitals, were rewarded prizes to further develop their applications. Vital Signs created an application that puts sensors and charging technology in fire department uniforms (i.e. jacket or helmet) and Field Vitals developed a long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) soil sensor that monitors moisture. LoRaWAN is designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost prohibitive to connect.
"LoRa Technology is already being used in many vertical markets including agriculture, smart city, smart building, and logistics," said
