Semtech and lar.tech Enable Smart Ranching with LoRa Technology

November 29, 2018 / IoT.Business.News

LoRa-based sensors track cattle wellbeing and location in real time. Semtech Corporation announced that lar.tech, a Russian smart technology innovator and member of the LoRa Alliance™, has created an Internet of Things (IoT) cattle monitoring solution leveraging Semtech’s LoRa® devices and technology. The LoRa-enabled GPS tracker and biometric sensor monitor the animals’ vitals and whether animals have strayed from their designated areas. “IoT solutions built on LoRa Technology represent an important emerging trend in ranching and smart agriculture,” said Alexander Trubitsin, Head of Development at lar.tech. The lar.tech LoRa-based device is tagged on a cow’s ear and wirelessly transmits real-time data on the cow’s location, reducing the chances of wandering or theft. Additionally, the tag monitors animal motion, letting the rancher know if the animal is over or underactive, as well as observes the animal’s body temperature and detect...
