According to Cambridge News, a LoRaWAN network has recently been set up in Cambridge for the 'Intelligent City Plaform'—essentially, a smart city platform for IoT devices to sense and influence the environment:
A new LoRa (low power long range) network has also been set up with the University to transfer data flowing from the sensors to the data hub, so that is can be analysed and visualised to plan smart solutions, including making transport systems more reliable and easier to use.
The platform is among the first to collate data, which will allow citizens, third party developers and commercial partners to ‘test bed’ innovative applications including the new Cambridge mobile travel app, which will be available to download this summer.
I found this page from IoTUK Boost suggesting that the network is only open to people participating in the competition, but the article suggests that any developer might be able to connect.
Could a normal citizen connect to and use the smart city network, or is access restricted to those with prior permission?
