In this activity, you are going to create a geolocation tracking environment. In this environment, you will facilitate the creation of a system that lets you monitor the movements of your belongings, specifically your Smart Badge, via a mobile application (AMA). The backbone of this system is LoRaWAN® networking technology, which will be used to transfer location messages from your Smart Badge to backend systems.
The badge you’ll be using is designated with LoRaWAN® connectivity, enabling seamless communication with LoRaWAN® gateways. This badge is equipped with geolocation capabilities based on GPS, WiFi fingerprinting, and BLE beaconing. It will periodically transmit its location data across the LoRaWAN® network. LoRaWAN® gateways will pick up these signals and forward the data to a backend platform.
