Tracking indoor and outdoor by GNSS and cell ID

Tracking test: Main trip to Amsterdam

Field test: tracking indoor and outdoor In order to demonstrate the tracking goods and assets across borders, a field test was executed over several days in different countries and different methods of transport. In addition to delivery vehicles and cars, trams and walking were also used. The car was parked in an underground car park […]

NB-IoT for smart bin / intellegent container

akorIoT SensPRO - NB-IoT , LTE-M, GPRS reference design

Enquiry for a smart waste container We have already developed many antennas for metal containers on GSM, UMTS, NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRaWAN and Sigfox. For us the radio technology does not make a big difference. The akorIoT SensPRO is already a reference design for such a smart bin. Request for the smart waste bin Hi Harald, […]

Low cost BLE-GPRS-GPS-gateway

Bluetooth-GPRS-GPS-gateway

Are we able to make a mint of money with such a low-cost BLE-GPRS-GPS-gateway? If yes then it makes sense to follow a train of thoughts listed in my IoT M2M Cookbook. Everybody can make such a gateway real for less than USD 15. In my IoT M2M Cookbook – excerpt here: http://www.gsm-modem.de/M2M/m2m_iot_cookbook I explained […]

NB-IoT shield with Arduino header renamed to akorIoT

NB-IoT Shield Arduino

The idea for the NB-IoT shield with Arduino header was conceived in summer 2016. We then produced the first version of the NB-IoT shield at the M2M Summit in September 2016. The second generation was shown to readers of my IoT/M2M Cookbook in our end of the year mailing and it has proved extremely popular; we […]

HARdunio – Arduino footprint NB-IoT shield update

Arduino shield with NB-IoT module

We have extensively tested the HARduino board over the past few days. We have been testing the GSM version due to the lack of NB-IoT coverage in the region of our office in the North of Germany but both NB-IoT and GSM exhibit the same characteristics in the tests we carried out. The AT command set […]

World’s first free and open IoT out of the box with NB-IoT module with Arduino header

NB-IoT-LTE-Cat-NB1-M1-Arduino-Shield

Many IoT / M2M Cookbook customers asked me for an evaluation kit within the last two years. I launched the first version during M2M Summit in September 2016. In February 2017 the multicellular version came true. The working name is HARduino because it has an Arduino R3 compatible UART interface. HARALD – ALD + duino […]

Waterproofed Android smartphones, tablets and pet trackers

Android devices and pet trackers for life, not just for Christmas – original blog posted in Nov 2011 As Janis Joplin sang, “My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends”. Two of my friends own an iPhone and they always buy the latest smartphones. I will “make amends” and skip buying  a tablet for […]
