Device Solutions recently sponsored our second team of students in the senior design project of N.C. State’s Electrical and Computer Engineering program.  These students successfully extended the range of Cellio, our Internet of Things ecosystem. 

The ECE Senior Design program is a capstone course intended to prepare up and coming engineers for the workplace. Over the past two semesters, we have worked with seniors Spencer Mougey, Kieran Perkins, Ryan Shank, and Robert Shull on a project to expand the range of our current Cellio offering.

We tasked these young men with applying long range (LoRa) technology to increase the range of Cellio. With the mentoring of the Device Solutions team, the students developed the hardware and software needed to create a long range, self-assembling network between our gateways and sensors. These students broadened the system range beyond that of standard LoRa technology by adding mesh functionality as well.

Device Solutions would like to congratulate these students on their first place win in the Sensors, Communication, and Hardware-in-the-Loop category at the Senior Design Day competition!
