Ground Segment

It consists of the network of sensors distributed over an area that needs to be monitored. The nodes can measure environmental, physical, chemical data, or detect deformations caused by mechanical or thermal stress. The measured data are then transmitted via radio to the network gateways.

Ground Segment Nodes

Ground segment nodes (possibly battery equipped),  consist of a sensor unit and a radio transceiver. Our transmission protocols allow the reception of data from hundreds of sensors in just few seconds. IDESIO exploits different standard radio technologies (Zigbee, LoRaWAN, NB-IOT) that operate in licenced or unlicensed frequency bands.

IDESIO uses modules that can be adapted to sensors of any type: extensometers, piezoelectrics, temperature and humidity sensors, chemical or meteorological sensors, etc.  The choice of radio technology depends on the specific application.

IDESIO offers the design and development of the entire ground segment unit when necessary.

Zigbee, LoRa, NB-IOT allow for the transmission of measured data to the distances from 100m to 10 Km, making data collection rapid and simple.

Energy consumption of ground segment nodes is minimised thanks to the deployment of Low Power Listening techniques that allow extending the battery lifetime to up to several years.

Multiradio transmission

WiFi

WiFi technology (based on IEEE 802.11g) standard allows data transmission at more than 100 Mbit / s over distances up to about 100 m on the ISM (license-free) band at 2.4 GHz. It is a very successful radio standard used in many application contexts resulting in lower realization cost and maximum reliability. Optimal for civil structure monitoring and when the large amounts of data need to be transmitted.

LoRa

Lora technology allows the transmission of data at a few tens of kbit / s up to distances of about 10 km using ISM (license-free)  band at 868 MHz. It ‘a recently introduced proprietary radio system used in the field of Smart City applications, with low realization cost and high reliability. Optimal for all applications in which the area to be monitored is very vast.

NB-IOT

NB-IOT is a 4G technology offered by MNOs (Mobile Network Operators). It allows the transmission of data at about 1 Mbit/s up to distances of about 10 km using licensed spectrum. Optimal for all applications in which energy efficiency is not the primary requirement.

Zigbee

The ZigBee (based on IEEE 802.15.4) standard technology allows data transmission at 250 kbit / s up to a distance of about 100 m using the ISM (license-free) band at 2.4 GHz. It is a very successful radio standard used in many application contexts with very low realization cost and high reliability. Optimal for applications such as precision agriculture.
