Today we are proud to announce the launch of a solution landing page- Smart Village. This new page is the home of all our smart village solutions, products and user cases. It also represents our commitment to facilitating support to global developers to bring digital transformation into the village.
In this page, you can explore the challenges and opportunities of village digitalization. You can also get a glimpse of the various scenarios in villages where IoT solutions can play a key role to leverage the digital transformation. Also a full solution covering from sensor node, gateway and to cloud is also an important element of the page. Through the success stories on the page, you can have a deeper understanding of how IoT solutions solve real world issues in villages.
Moreover, digital twin is a highlight of the page. A digital twin is a real-time virtual representation of a real-world physical system or process (a physical twin) that serves as the indistinguishable digital counterpart of it for practical purposes, such as system simulation, integration, testing, monitoring, and maintenance.” It’s like creating a highly complex virtual model that is the exact counterpart (or twin) of a physical thing.
To make it easier to understand how a digital twin works and contributes to digital transformation, we collaborated with new Media artist Yuanyuan Wang created 2 amazing digital twin projects using the SenseCAP LoRaWAN Devices (Gateway and Sensors) that we deployed on our rooftop garden. Let’s get a close and immersive glimpse of them now.
Note: These 2 projects are all live on our smart village page. Click below to get an immersive exploring.
It’s an intelligent greenhouse powered by a sensors monitoring system and a gateway. The devices in the virtual model represent the 5 Seeed Studio SenseCAP LoRaWAN Sensors and Gateway that we deployed in our office rooftop garden. All the data collected in the garden (physical world) is mapped onto the screen dashboard of the virtual model. When you click the sensor devices in the model, it will automatically lead you to read the detailed data collected by the physical sensor in real time!
The creator duo applied LiDAR and Matterport App to create an interactive 3D experiences of real-world spaces – the rooftop garden in our office, crafted a complete walkthrough of this space in a 3-dimensional, interactive platform with a 360-degree virtual tour. In the real world, SenseCAP LoRaWAN sensors were deployed in corresponding positions.
Within this 360 tour, tags were added for notating important features of those sensors, and the pop-up windows showed the real-time data which was collected from a real garden.
You can read how they build this project on Hackster.
To summarize, everything you want to explore what a smart village looks like is all covered here. You can even explore these two digital twin projects. So, why wait? Explore it now!
That’s it for this entry. As always, we can’t wait to see what you make. Shoot us a tweet @seeedstudio, or let us know on LinkedIn, Discord, or publish your project on our Project Hub on Hackster. Please be safe out there, be kind to one another, and we’ll see you next month with even more exciting news!
