Geolocate a device is very powerful in some use cases. Understand where is an asset, my car or my dog is priceless in specific moments where there is money or life in risk. All of this depends on having GPS availability on the hardware, usually a GPS chip introduced on the shield with an antenna. With the GPRS and 3G, etc the antenna’s triangulation enabled IoT devices (and mobile handsets) to become geolocalized with some errors but without GPS chip. Now Sigfox is releasing a similar feature, Sigfox antennas triangulation enable geolocation with no GPS chip, that makes your hardware cheaper than expected.
Today we are going to connect a Sigfox device with the Spot’it service. Spot’it is the newest location manager of Sigfox. Now with thethings.iO and Sigfox Spot’it you can track all your Sigfox devices in a very simple way. thethings.iO is the most simple Sigfox IoT platform.
