For gas meters, when it becomes necessary to shut off the gas supply in the event of a disaster or a long absence, there is a requirement for a gas meter that can handle the shutoff of the gas supply without human intervention by the system itself. LoRaWAN®, a wireless communication Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol for IoT, can achieve low power consumption and small-scale data transmission for long distances. Usually, LoRaWAN uses the Class A standard; however, the LoRaWAN Class B standard which is low power consumption and low latency can be remotely controlled and is ideal for gas meters. The LoRaWAN network can also address additional IoT solutions that may solve regional issues and revitalization.
