Semtech and X-TELIA Implement LoRa Solution for Smart Bus Schedule Signs

Among the first of its kind in Canada, the signs leverage a LoRaWAN™ network to accurately provide up-to-date bus schedules in Montreal

CAMARILLO, Calif., August 2, 2018 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that X-TELIA, an Montreal-based LoRaWAN™ network operator that enables the Internet of Things (IoT) and a LoRa Alliance™ member, developed a smart city solution utilizing Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) in digital schedules for bus shelters in the Montreal area.

“X-TELIA worked closely with RTL Transit Corporation to develop enhanced community services by providing large scale digital signs,” Eric Bourbeau, CEO of X-TELIA. “This project, among the first of its kind in Canada, should greatly improve the lives of many commuters and be an example of smarter transit for cities everywhere.”

X-TELIA implemented a LoRa-based display screen showing the next departing bus times in bus shelters. The displays are solar powered and operated on X-TELIA’s public LoRaWAN network. X-TELIA is currently updating the displays to show bus delays in real-time, leveraging LoRa Technology for tracking and up-to-the-minute schedule changes. The program is among the first in Canada to utilize LoRa Technology for smart transit including tracking and scheduling.

“LoRa Technology for smart transit can save commuters time and help the transit authority run more efficiently,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “X-TELIA’s LoRa-based solution is an excellent example for future system integrators as the sensors are easy to install, run on a fraction of the power of current solutions and provide real-time tracking even in densely crowded urban areas. When these solutions are combined with other smart city technologies, including smart parking and waste management, the future of a city is transformed to create a smarter planet.”
