We’re really happy to welcome HereLab to the Maker Faire!  HereLab is a nonprofit organization establishing an Island-wide, community-led, open LoRa network on Martha’s Vineyard.

In addition to network development, they have installed gateways and initiated collaboration with the West Tisbury School to teach the fundamentals — “from wire to app” — of temperature sensors development and deployment. They are working with 4 teachers at MV Regional High School on maker/physical science and environmental applications of LoRa sensors. In addition, they are working with representatives from the town of Vineyard Haven to establish a “Low Key Smart Town”, and they are working with a Falmouth aquafarmer to begin trials for realtime water quality data monitoring.  By the time of the Faire, they will have realtime data and visualizations of that data from these projects.

Stop by HereLab’s table at the Faire to learn about the technology and the value and application of open data and community-led LoRa networks.
