Semtech’s LoRa® Devices Prevent Food Waste in Restaurants

GND Solutions’ LoRa-enabled temperature sensors reduce restaurant operational cost by 40 percent

CAMARILLO, Calif., August 21, 2019 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that GND Solutions (GND), an Internet of Things (IoT) solution provider for the industrial, smart city and smart energy segments, has integrated Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol into its new smart refrigeration solutions for restaurant applications. Recently, a seven-story, five-star restaurant in Dubai deployed GND’s LoRa-based solutions into its kitchens and refrigerators. Following the solution’s deployment, the restaurant saw a reduction of up to 40 percent of its operational cost due to greater food management efficiency.

“准确、高效、可靠地监控食物从冰箱到餐桌的全过程是餐厅环境面临的最大挑战之一。”GND Solutions 的创始人兼总经理 Siva Reddy 说道, “GND 在迪拜餐厅安装了一个网关和 500 个传感器,利用 Semtech 的 LoRa 设备优势实现了部署简化。 由此,餐厅经理就可以利用物联网解决方案实时监控食物移动到厨房各个位置时的温度数据。”

In the United States alone, food waste is estimated to be between 30 to 40 percent of the total food produced annually. This amount corresponds to approximately $161 billion worth of food in 2010. In the restaurant industry, managers carefully monitor food from refrigerator to table to prevent waste and extend shelf life. However, many factors affect food safety and contribute to waste, most notably human error in handling and storage. GND’s GLoSe-916T is a LoRaWAN-based wireless IoT solution for humidity and temperature monitoring. For restaurant applications, these IoT solutions provide real time data for managers to ensure the shelf life of food is maximized and it remains safe to consume. The LoRa-enabled sensors report temperature data to managers at customizable intervals to eliminate human error and allow close surveillance of food condition and safety. Sensors simply deploy into refrigerator infrastructure without additional wiring, operate up to two years on a single battery charge and accurately report temperatures between -40°C and 100°C.

“Semtech 的 LoRa 设备和 LoRaWAN 协议为智能制冷应用提供了理想的功能组合,实现一致且准确的温度监控,”Semtech 无线和传感产品系列物联网副总裁 Marc Pegulu 谈到, “通过利用 LoRaWAN 经验证的优势,GND 能够加快产品上市,确保冰箱内的食物安全,防止浪费并为客户降低成本。”
