IoT LoRaWan in monitoring natural disasters Forum

ISOC Kyrgyz Chapter is organizing forum "Application of innovative technologies in monitoring and forecasting of climate change and natural disasters" in Bishkek

Protecting people’s lives and property from disasters related to weather, climate and water has been and remains the most important task for ensuring global sustainable development.

Most of the results presented recently by climate scientists are alarming. The mass of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is increasing faster than originally predicted. Scientists, economists and policy makers are calling for a reduction in emissions benchmarks. A number of positive steps have been taken to prevent the most adverse scenarios of climate change. Affordable new technologies that contribute to mitigation have become available, such as the use of solar and wind energy, electric vehicles and vehicles.  Thirty-two countries have successfully reduced their emissions in the last 15 years, and their economies continue to grow.

In the prevention of natural disasters, multiple methods have been developed: observation, research, forecasting, taking into account the receipt of data from various stations. The combination of devices and services that collect, transmit and display data and information electronically leads to easier work in forecasting. This includes personal computers (PCs) and their peripherals, broadband networks and telecommunication devices, as well as data processing centers.

One of such technologies is LoRaWAN data transfer technology for the Internet of Things IoT. The principle of operation is that smart sensors monitor indicators online, analyze them and transmit data to the server. Through the application, sensor data is displayed on the monitor. In general, the system is able to independently evaluate hundreds of indicators, which allows, for example, to unload responsible employees. Unskilled routine operations can now be safely entrusted to the machine, leaving employees more time for intellectual work.

All sensors work autonomously without power supply for up to 10 years without wires. This is especially true for stations that transmit data using electricity or panels.  The absence of wires also makes the process of implementing the technology as simple and convenient as possible. At the same time, the cost remains affordable for mass use.

Internet Society Kyrgyz Chapter in partnership with Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences is planning to conduct presentation forum “Application of innovative technologies in monitoring and forecasting of climate change and natural disasters” with key stakeholders on use of LoRaWAN technology and internet of things to monitor and predict natural disasters in the Kyrgyz Republic. The forum will be held on December 7, 2022 in Park Hotel, Bishkek. For media inquiries and forum participation requests, please refer to Ms. Cholpon Zhaparkulova, tel.  +996 312 556300 (308)
