AmbaSat CO2 Monitoring System – Case Study

AmbaSat CO2 Monitoring System – Case Study

Client Overview:

The client is developing innovative data analysis systems to enable landowners to receive a fair return from a change to ecological land management and businesses to independently verify their climate actions. In pursuit of this goal, the client sought to implement an advanced CO2 monitoring system. The system would consist of six AmbaSat distributed CO2 sensors, a remote AmbaSat gateway connected via LoRaWAN technology, and AmbaSat’s web-based dashboard for real-time monitoring, alerting, and pattern tracking.


The primary challenge was to design and deploy an efficient CO2 monitoring system that could cover an expansive area while maintaining a cost-effective and reliable communication infrastructure. The system needed to accurately measure CO2 levels, establish seamless communication with the central gateway located 2km away, and provide actionable insights through an intuitive web-based dashboard.


AmbaSat designed and implemented a comprehensive CO2 monitoring system comprising the following components:

  • CO2 Sensors: Six strategically placed CO2 sensors were deployed across farmlands to capture localized CO2 levels. These sensors were equipped with high-precision nondispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 measurement technology, ensuring accurate and real-time data collection.
  • LoRaWAN Gateway: A central AmbaSat gateway was installed approximately 2km away from the farmlands to act as a communication hub. LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) technology was chosen due to its extended range and low power consumption characteristics. The gateway received data from the CO2 sensors and transmitted it securely to the AmbaSat cloud server.
  • Cloud Infrastructure: Data received from the sensors was transmitted to AmbaSat’s cloud-based server for storage and processing. The cloud infrastructure is responsible for data aggregation and analysis, and serves as a bridge between the gateway and the web-based dashboard.
  • Web-Based Dashboard: An intuitive and user-friendly web-based dashboard was developed to provide real-time monitoring, alerting, and pattern-tracking capabilities. Users could access the dashboard from any device with an internet connection. The dashboard displayed CO2 levels across different sensor locations, historical trends, and customizable alerts based on predefined threshold values.


The implementation of the CO2 monitoring system yielded several notable benefits for the client:

  • Data-Driven Decision Making: AmbaSat’s web-based dashboard provided the client with actionable insights derived from historical data and real-time measurements. This empowered them to make informed decisions and adjustments.
  • Early Detection and Alerting: The system’s alerting mechanism notified the client of sudden spikes or drops in CO2 levels, enabling proactive intervention to prevent potential crop damage.
  • Remote Monitoring: The LoRaWAN technology allowed for remote communication with the gateway, eliminating the need for manual data collection and minimizing on-site visits.
  • Pattern Tracking: The dashboard’s pattern tracking feature facilitated the identification of long-term trends and correlations between CO2 levels and other environmental factors.


The implementation of the AmbaSat CO2 monitoring system using LoRaWAN technology and a web-based dashboard significantly enhanced the client’s farming operations. By leveraging real-time data, actionable insights, and remote monitoring capabilities, the client was able to optimize crop health, resource allocation, and overall productivity across their extensive farmlands. The successful deployment of this technology-driven solution underscored the potential of IoT-based systems in revolutionizing modern agriculture practices.
