LoRa Technology Enabling Smart Asset Tracking at Istanbul Airport

Semtech Corporation, a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced that Skysens Teknoloji ASa provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions based on the LoRaWAN protocol, has integrated Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its smart asset tracking solutions for Istanbul Airport.

Solutions built on Semtech’s LoRa Technology deploy simply with minimal infrastructure cost to comprehensively monitor a wide range of airport applications. Airports’ supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems monitor infrastructure, but offer no way to oversee an asset’s current condition, location, operational status, or whether maintenance is necessary. LoRa Technology allowed Skysens to connect applications across the entirety of Istanbul Airport for effective data monitoring to drive down operational cost and create a smarter, safer airport.

The Istanbul Airport has an area of 76.5 million square meters, currently it serves more than 100 million passengers a year and expects to serve around 200 million passengers annually in the next few years. Skysens deployed an end-to-end IoT solution comprised of 3,000 LoRa-based sensors with plans to deploy 10,000 total sensors upon the airport’s completion. Additionally, Skysens provided the LoRaWAN-based network and applications to connect the airport’s sensors that will also be leveraged by other airport tenants and airline companies. Istanbul Airport leverage Skysens’ LoRa-based geolocation sensors to monitor the location of vehicles, personnel and luggage GPS-free. Skysens’ LoRaWAN-based network infrastructure meets the needs of both indoor and outdoor applications for interoperability and efficient project management. Data from the LoRa-based sensors drives down airport operational expenses by allowing for predictive maintenance, efficient and accurate asset monitoring and a reduction in energy consumption. All data monitoring and analysis is accomplished through Skysens’ own Cloud IoT platform.

Semtech’s LoRa Technology gives managers the capacity to track status, data and diagnostics from thousands of assets at once, making it the optimal IoT solution for Istanbul Airport. With LoRa Technology, Skysens was able to simplify development and accelerate products to market that successfully capture data from diverse airport applications. This data allows airport managers to more efficiently monitor their fleet and energy use to make smarter decisions and reduce cost.
