The Puck Radar Sensor is a sturdy device for LoRaWAN that comes in two executions of the casing. The first is an IP67 version capable of withstanding rain and other outdoor conditions, offering the option to replace the battery as it runs out. The replaceable 2.1 Ah battery lasts approximately ten years while transmitting its current position four times an hour. The other is an IP69 version with ultrasonically welded housing which removes the option to replace the battery but allows the device to be deployed in highly strenuous conditions where there might be sludge, erosion, and similar.

The device houses a 60Ghz radar sensor from Acconeer, offering a range of 10 meters and GPS positioning. It can be mounted on walls, ceilings, floors, or any object from where the radar signal can be placed to face an object and measure the distance between. Suggested use cases range everywhere from monitoring parking lots to snow- and wastebin/container depth monitoring. Apart from GPS tracking, the sensor also includes a temperature sensor that can be useful in monitoring snow depth or heat levels when particular objects are close to the sensor. The built-in temperature sensor can be helpful in applications like the snow depth case, and the GPS function will come in handy to track waste bins or position the parking sensor on a map.
