Internet of Things

Sigfox, the global Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) connectivity provider, recently hosted a final pitch event in the San Francisco Bay Area in which participants of Sigfox’s inaugural Hacking House program, hosted at 42 Silicon Valley, presented three IoT solutions to real-world problems to mentors and technologists.

Sigfox’s first-ever Hacking House program drew 12 participants – including students, developers and freelancers from around the globe – who underwent intensive IoT and Sigfox technology training over the course of three months.

Applying their IoT knowledge and working in collaboration with Sigfox project managers, device makers and startup executives, participants operated in project teams to create three IoT solutions to some of today’s most pressing technological, environmental and business problems using Low Power Wide Area connectivity.

The IoT solutions developed and presented for the first time at the Hacking House final pitch event include:

Connected Seals – designed to create accountability within container shipping, this solution alerts companies engaged in import and export activity when container seals are removed. In contrast to competitive solutions, this application delivers the information needed in a simple, cost-effective and recyclable way.

Lali Wildfire Detection – created in response to California’s recent wildfires, this application identifies and alerts firefighters when and where a fire starts, providing them with the information needed to quickly reach and contain the fire before causing widespread damage.

42 Robolab – to help retailers deliver top-notch customer experiences in an ecommerce-dominated world, this application powers a connected shelf that tracks inventory in real-time, providing data on top-performing products enabling retailers to intelligently manage orders.
