LS1021A IoT Gateway/Thread Border Router Demo

  • LS1021A Gateway Reference Design operating as Thread Border Router/Gateway
  • Connects high density Thread 802.15.4 mesh network to cloud
  • Sensor network detects parking spot usage in large parking structure


This Demo Is Probably of Interest If You:

  • Need high bandwidth to the cloud, other gateways, etc. w/OpenWRT
  • Need to connect a large number of low power wireless edge devices
  • Looking to use a Thread 802.15.4 mesh to connect sensors

Differentiation This Demo Highlights

  • Ability to quickly connect Thread network to high capability Gateway
  • Use Linux on LS1021A to display data from sensors and also post to cloud
  • Gateway can function as a multi-protocol gateway and Thread Border Router


This illustrative demo leverages the LS1021A-IoT Gateway and features the KW24 Freedom board attached to the onboard Arduino headers. This FRDM-KW24 communicates with the KW24 sensor boards using the Thread protocol over 802.15.4. The embedded Linux on the LS1021A-IoT can be used to display information sent and received from the KW24 sensor boards and can also forward the information to a cloud application. The demo simulates an illustrative automated parking structure system that tracks and displays open parking spaces locally for drivers, as well as remotely to allow for managing parking availability across multiple lots for activities such as major sporting and entertainment events where tens of thousands of cars need to be directed to open parking in a short period of time.
