Event: Deep dive into LoRa-based wireless monitoring in tunnel construction

Barcelona, May 2019

Worldsensing organizes a technical workshop during GEO Business 2019 in London focusing on tunnel construction for metros and high-speed trains

Barcelona, May 2019
When using a wireless-based system to monitor operations there are several considerations to take into account to make the most of this technology. One of the key parameters is range, or the distance across which information can be transmitted; this is linked to the type of radio communication used.

Knowing the differences helps making the right choice

LoRa is one of the communication protocols available to wirelessly connect battery-operated “things” to the internet in regional, national or global networks. There are several LoRa-based solutions on the market, and knowing the difference in terms of performance helps to make sure that requirements are met for each project.
For their Internet of things (IoT) based wireless monitoring services, Worldsensing uses LoRa technology to cover the requirements of the geotechnical monitoring sector in particular. The technical experts at Worldsensing consider LoRa the best technology available due to its long transmission distance, strong protection against interference, low power consumption and low- cost data transmission.

Learnings from globally renowned metro and high-speed train projects

With the aim of discussing how construction projects can maximize the benefits of using an IoT-based wireless system, Worldsensing is organizing a workshop with special focus on the aspects to be considered for metro and high-speed train tunnel construction projects. During the session, the main evaluation criteria will be outlined in terms of monitoring precision, accuracy, consistency, scalability, robustness and compliance to international standards.
Real case studies will be presented where LoRa technology is applied before and during the tunnel construction of metro and high-speed train projects including:
Grand Paris Metro Project
Purple Line Extension in Los Angeles and Purple Line Rail Link in Washington D.C.
Fornebu Metro Line in Oslo
The workshop forms part of the conference program of GEO Business 2019, the event that provides an international forum for experts on geospatial technologies and solutions taking place in the UK every year since 2014.
