Most apps or IoT devices use some sort of Geolocation feature; that part is quite mainstream. However, making sure this feature works regardless of location or connectivity is a much greater challenge.
Check out this new episode when we went to the middle of nowhere France and tested different approaches to geolocation and data transfer.
Some of the topics we cover include: GPS quality, Intel Edison and storing data locally, using Sigfox; we even mention the LoRa protocol though we were not able to test it in the field yet.
Maybe in a forthcoming episode!
