Collaboration Opportunities for Companies

Current Activities at the ECOtower of the Andesflux Network

Our team member Jan Sonntag is currently supporting Eric Cosio, professor at the PUCP University in Peru. Eric is planning and managing a network of measurement towers for atmospheric research named AndesFlux distributed in the Amazon region of Peru along the foot of the Andes mountain range.

Jan and Eric are currently at the ECOtower, the first of the AndesFlux measurement towers, at Rio Tambopata, close to the city Puerto Maldonado.

Visiting the La Salle University of Technology (ULSA)

As part of the DAAD project LatiNet we are visiting the ULSA, Leon, Nicaragua.
More information on our activities can be found here.

Let's Talk about Jetson Nano in 2024

(Harley Lara, May 2024)

In March 2019 NVIDIA introduced the Jetson Nano in two variants, the Jetson Nano 'Module' which is a system-on-module (SoM) and a Jetson Nano 'Developer Kit' which is a carrier board with the Jetson Nano Module to facilitate the development and prototyping of edge AI applications. For the curious, the Jetson Nano contains a Tegra T210 system-on-chip (SoC), which interestingly is the same module that you will find in Jetson TX1 (the first generation of Jetson modules).

With the introduction to the market the Jetson Nano gained a lot of traction due to its price and the ability to offer GPUs with CUDA support at low power (10W max), however since then the hype for the Jetson Nano has dropped drastically, influenced by new introductions such as the Jetson Orin Nano. This blog seeks to describe the current status of the Jetson Nano.

Zeche Friedrich-Heinrich: Kamp-Lintfort wide Open LoRaWAN deployed!

(Jan Sonntag, Shreya Gupta, Rolf Becker, 2023-06-28)

Kamp-Lintfort is now covered by the community-driven open LoRaWAN network of The Things Network (TTN)!

Anyone in the area can now deploy their own LoRaWAN devices and use the new gateways for free to transmit data to their own TTN applications. Our first application is the data collection of our own groundwater gauges developed with and for LINEG.

IoT Workshop with the Georg-Forster-Gymnasium

The workshop at our IoTLab focused on device-assisted automated environmental sensor technology. Participants worked with a low-cost minicomputer, configuring it to work with various sensors. The goal was to use the device to collect and wirelessly transmit observation data for later visualization, such as in the form of diagrams. The aim is to continue and further develop this project for use in a course project.

First tests at the Tambopata Flux Tower for the Andesflux-Network

As a project partner of the PUCP in particular the Institue for Nature, Earth and Energy led by Eric Cosio, we are working on supporting the build-up of an infrastructure to connect multiple eddy covariance towers located in the Amazon basin into one network and also develop and install LoRaWAN Hardware, which is used to gather information from the area surrounding the towers.

New technology in town

On 2 June 2022, the team of Earth Observation Lab, headed by Prof. Dr. R. Becker, visited the Zechenturm in Zechenpark, Kamp-Lintfort. Officials from LINEG were also present for the tour inside the tower as part of the lab’s plan to install LoRaWAN gateways in the tower for public and university use.
