Niels Stamhuis has created a new LoRa development board called the Marvin which he has launched via the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with the aim of raising €10,000 over the next 30 days.
The Marvin hardware has been designed to provide a plug and play solution for creating Internet of Things projects using LoRa communication. Watch the video below to learn more about its design and functionality.
Nice to meet you, we are RDM Makerspace and we created Marvin for you. You probably have some ideas to get started with Internet of Things (IoT), but you have some, or no clue at all what your first step would be, right? Well here’s the thing. We have a background in training people to understand what IoT is, and we’ll help you get started too: We have made IoT Plug & Play!
IoT is being called one of the “Disruptive” technologies of the coming years and will positively impact many cities, organizations and individuals. Why? Because with Internet of Things you can make a very simple and low cost solution within a day, from which your process, logistics or business can benefit in many ways. No need to change your current process or operations, just use Marvin as add-on to what you do and get started today!
We help people to create their own Internet of Things application. To do our best to help as many people as we can to get started, we created a tool that does the work for us, we called it Marvin. Marvin is easy to use, Arduino based, plug and play grove sensor compatible and works with LoRa communication on LoRa networks such as the KPN LoRa network, the Belgium Proximus network or The Things Network working with 868MHz. (LoRa in your country? See below!)
Yes, LoRa, the new standard for Internet of Things solutions. There are various communication protocols available nowadays and we think that LoRa is just another, yet a very useful addition to the connectivity scheme. Long Range, Low Power is what catalyst the development of IoT.
