LoRa Sensors and Gateways at Sea

Fierce Electronics has an article mentioning LoRa sensors and gateways will be used aboard ocean freighters. Wilhelmsen will implement a large IoT platform aboard ocean-going freighters worldwide using LoRa.

“LoRa was the right choice of wireless technology, since its range is long enough to service an entire ship but not so long-range that it uses too much power that can quickly exhaust batteries in sensors”

A typical freighter will have 2,000 or more sensors sending data to three gateways.
