With the launch of its Sparrow development kit, Blues Wireless hopes to offer a solution for the last-mile problem of internet-connecting a group of low-cost, low-power device sensors for shared data backhaul to the cloud. The kit provides a complete solution, with reference hardware, example firmware, and an easy-to-deploy web application. The power-efficient Sparrow Gateway provides cellular or Wi-Fi backhaul and orchestrates LoRa-based communication with Sparrow sensors.
In the Sparrow schema, sensors are organized into clusters, and LoRa-based sensor data is routed through inexpensive Notecard-powered cellular gateways. The Notecard's developer experience is designed to simplify cellular, democratizing a capability formerly only available to large engineering firms. The full range of Notecard offerings simplify wireless across cellular, Wi-Fi, and LPWAN technologies.
