LoRaWAN Plant Monitoring System

Title of I&T Wish LoRaWAN Plant Monitoring System
(REF : W-0226)
Project Summary and Challenges To align with the Smart City initiative and strategic plan to develop a Government Wide IoT Network in Hong Kong, we are now searching for front-end plant monitoring sensing device which shall interface with the LoRaWAN Gateway (LoRaWAN Standard V1.0.2 or above). The LoRaWAN Plant Monitoring System is expected to achieve the following:

  1. Monitor the real-time health status of the plant, including the following parameters:
    • Temperature
    • Humidity
    • Light intensity
    • Soil Moisture
  2. Control the emission of light wavelength to facilitate the growth of the plant;
  3. As the available space is limited, the size of the plant monitoring system could not exceed 2.5m x 2.5m;
  4. The system shall deploy LoRaWAN technology & shall operate in AS923MHz frequency band;
  5. The project trial period would last for half year to one year.
The data transmitted shall be sent to EMSD owns LoRaWAN network server with specified data format, for further integrate with the LoRaWAN Gateway, Network Server, and EMSD owned on-premise IoT network server platform.
Expected Outcome Solution provider shall be responsible for design, supply and install such sensors. If solution provider would like to deploy sensors of other wireless technologies in the sensor layer, he/ she must provide integration and encoding/decoding/transcoding services to communicate with LoRaWAN Gateway. Solution provider who could not demonstrate this purpose will be disqualified.

The solution provider could also propose other smart features to further enhance the facility management and user experience. The adoption of additional features would be subjected to Engineer's final decision.

EMSD shall not be liable for any losses (including consequential losses), damages, demands, costs, claims, charges or other expenses of any kind suffered or incurred by the solution provider.
Expected Project Duration 6 months
