Sigfox and Coral join forces to spark IoT innovation with AI at the edge

Sigfox, the 0G network pioneer and the world’s leading IoT (Internet of Things) communication service provider, today announced its partnership with Coral, Google’s platform of hardware components, software tools, and models for building devices with Artificial Intelligence at the edge.

As further sectors integrate IoT devices into their activities, more data than ever is being collected and industry leaders are struggling to find fast and cost-efficient ways to transport and harness it.

To solve this challenge, Coral provides the technology to run a machine learning model locally, at the edge, without needing to send large amounts of data to the cloud.

The Internet of Animals: Today’s Sheep Radio with 0G

Long since standard in modern logistics, the Internet of Things (IoT) is now also moving into alpine pastures. Locating and controlling animals, planning and maintaining pastures – the management of an alpine pasture takes a lot of time. So much time, in fact, that in 2019 the Raumberg-Gumpenstein Federal Agricultural Research Station (HBLFA) launched the two-year practical project “Pasture GPS” for more efficiency in pasture management. For the series of tests, which has now ended, 85 Austrian alpine pastures were equipped with GPS trackers from the vehicle industry, which run via the classic GSM mobile phone network. On the alpine pastures that had no network coverage for this, the grazing animals radioed with the trackers from Digitanimal via the Sigfox 0G radio network from Heliot Europe, which is operated under the name Sigfox Austria. After two years, project manager Reinhard Huber draws a positive balance about the series of trials: “At first we were worried whether our farmers would even want to be part of the project, but in the end we had such a great demand – it was a complete success!”
