Next Meetup

Next Generation Digital Trust Framework & LPWAN
This one time at Pakhuis de Zwijger!! 18.00 Reception & networking in Café on ground floor 18.30 Doors Studio open 19.00 The Digital House – Trust Infrastructure by Bob Kronenburg (Alliander) At the heart of (amongst others) the Energy transition to a sustainable and local clean energy supply, we need to take steps to facilitate new services and new smart digital solutions to empower residents in choosing, building and realizing their own energy systems. The promise and untapped potential of all these new and smart services lack the proper digital infrastructure as we speak. Trust, Permission, identification and validation to name a few… Increasingly, Buildings, Objects and Multi-party service providers will need access to data and information from trusted/validated objects, entities and persons. A development that is heavily scrutinized under/by the GDPR and adjacent legislation. How can trustframeworks provide answers to complex legislation and increasing privacy concerns? For instance when the digital house is involved? 20.00 Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN), how low exactly? by Jan Willem Smeenk (SODAQ) An analysis of power consumption and comparison between LoRa and NB-IoT Most of us will know SODAQ for their range of LoRa based development boards, like the SODAQ ONE. They are extending their product line now with 6 new boards, specifically for developers that want to explore the new cellular networks NB-IoT and LTE-M. NB-IoT already has a nationwide coverage by T-Mobile and Vodafone, while in Q2 we are expecting KPN to offer complete coverage with LTE-M. Jan Willem Smeenk, the founder of SODAQ, emphasizes these new networks are not a replacement for LoRa but that those networks will (peacefully) coexist next to each other. He will share his vision on the use of these technologies in his talk. ==================================== During our meetups we talk and do Internet-of-Things, Sensors, Arduino, microbit, RaspPi, electronics and more. Ranging from DIY-projects on the 1th Wednesday of the month (e.g. waterquality) to presentations (IoT & Blockchain, Security, AI etc), events and just getting together to talk on the 3th Wednesday of the month. Everybody is welcome: Technical, non-technical or just interested. If you like to know more, be involved or are just curious: Just come to one of our regular meetups every third Wednesday of the Month at Makerversity Amsterdam. In addition, we want to bring in speakers for each event, who can share their thoughts, experiences and/or wisdom. So if you know someone, let us know. Follow us on twitter:SensemakersAMS ( or join us on Slack by providing us your emailadress.

What we're about

Public Group

Meetup dedicated to creative, advanced and human-centered Internet-of-Things, sensor(networks), electronics/hardware. We get together twice a month to share knowledge, handson, interests and human

The first Wednesday of the month, at the Sensemakers Lab session we do hands-on Internet-of-Things, with Arduino, RaspberryPi, Microbit, etc. You can do your own projects, learn from zero or participate in one of the projects related to waterquality, irrigation, airquality...
This meetup is hosted at the Public Library (Oba) where we can use their 3Dprinters and lasercutters for prototyping & experimenting.

The third Wednesday of the month we discuss and listen to presentations on Internet-of-Things and related subjects (networks, sensors, new startups, security, AI, blockchain). Feel free to contact Manon if you want to suggest a speaker or share a topic yourself!
