Wednesday 20 January 2016 | 09:17 CET | News
French IoT network operator Sigfox has formed the Sigfox Foundation to bring the benefits of IoT to non-profit, humanitarian causes around the world. The announcement coincides with the news that Sigfox has deployed its network at the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica Research Station to ensure the safety of the crew and equipment for the Belgian government's 2015-2016 Belare expedition. Belgian start-up Sensolus is providing expedition members with 45 GPS trackers connected to the Sigfox network to allow real-time tracking of their movements and some of their equipment.
