Open-source environmental sensing and asset tracking solution

Open-source environmental sensing and asset tracking solution

Ruuvi Innovations’ Ruuvi Node is an open-source node solution with cellular connectivity, energy harvesting, GPS, and NFC that is built around Nordic Semiconductor technology.

The Ruuvi Node uses both the Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160 SiP cellular IoT module (LTE-M and NB-IoT) and an ultra-low power Nordic nRF52840 Bluetooth 5 multi-protocol (Thread, Zigbee) System-on-Chip SoC.

The Ruuvi Node is maintenance-free and will include an embedded solar panel to support energy harvesting, a full range of environmental sensors, GPS positioning (using the Nordic nRF9160 SiP’s embedded GPS support), and NFC (through the embedded NFC feature on Nordic’s nRF52840 SoC). A 45Wh battery, multi-use expansion ports, and support for an external power source is also included. The device can also act as a cellular gateway for any of Ruuvi’s ‘RuuviTag’ Bluetooth sensor beacons.

Ruuvi is looking to launch the first pilots of the Ruuvi Node during Q2-3 this year.
