Introduction to the Digital Catapult & our Weightless-N project with Camden

A session at Over the Air 2015

Friday 25th September, 2015

12:15pm to 1:15pm (GMT)

The Digital Catapult is a national centre designed to advance rapidly the UK's best digital ideas and to help unlock new value from sharing closed and proprietary data. One of our key areas of focus is IoT and most recently we have been working closely with Camden Council to deploy a number of sensors a various locations across the borough to monitor intrusion and CO levels. To allow data backhaul from these remote locations we have deployed a trial Weightless-N based radio network. The talk will cover the project, the user cases and the network involved.
