Semtech LoRa Technology Enables Smart Bus Schedule Signs in Montreal, Canada

X-TELIA, the Montreal-based LoRaWAN network operator, has used Semtech’s LoRa Devices and technology in digital schedules for bus shelters in the Montreal area.

X-TELIA worked closely with the City of Montreal to develop enhanced community services by providing long range, low power digital signs. This project, among the first of its kind in Canada, is expected to greatly improve the lives of many commuters and be an example of smarter transit for cities everywhere.

The company installed LoRa-based displays showing the next departing bus time in bus shelters throughout Montreal. The solar powered displays operate on X-TELIA’s public LoRaWAN network. In the future, the company expects to update the displays to show bus delays in real-time, leveraging Semtech’s LoRa Technology for tracking and up-to-the-minute schedule changes. The program is among the first in Canada to utilize LoRa Technology for smart transit including tracking and scheduling.

Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide. IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in over 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.
