ARDUINO MKR FORM FACTOR

Compatible with all Arduino MKR boards: add sensors and interfaces to build your application

LONG-RANGE CONNECTIVITY

Sending data up to 15 Km for any IoT project

TRACKING & POSITIONING

Best-in-class, low-power GNSS technology, combining CloudLocate and LoRaWAN

LOW-POWER HIGH
PERFORMANCE

Extremely low-power board with Move-X and u-blox innovative module designs

The solution for power-constrained
IoT applications

Cicerone is perfect for tracking applications that need meter-level accuracy and long-range low-power LoRaWAN connectivity.
It is based on u-blox MAXM10S GNSS and Move-X MAMWLE modules. This combination allows for best-in-class synergy between GNSS technology and long-range wireless connectivity for power-constrained applications.
The board is designed to extend the battery life of IoT asset tracking applications thanks to an on-board LiPo charging circuit and u-blox CloudLocate positioning.

CloudLocate

Cloud-based positioning meets LoRaWAN

CloudLocate is the cloud-based positioning service by u-blox, designed to extend the battery life of power-constrained IoT devices. It is tailored to the needs of IoT asset tracking applications that require reasonable position accuracy, few daily position updates, and only need the positioning information on the cloud, not on the device.
The u-blox cloud-based positioning solution makes a perfect match for use with LoRaWAN, allowing for best-in-class synergy between GNSS technology and long-range wireless connectivity for a real-world developer board perfect for power constrained IoT devices.

For makers and engineers

• Quickly build complex IoT solutions in a small form factor thanks to the compatibility with Arduino IDE
• Expand the hardware with MKR shields

Applications

• Asset tracking
• Supply chain and logistics management
• Smart agriculture
• Smart cities
• Environment monitoring
• Infrastructure monitoring

MAMWLE by Move-X

The Move-X MAMWLE is a low-power, LoRaWAN-compliant radio module based on ST's STM32WLEx microcontroller by STMicroelectronics. Powered by a powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 with clock frequency up to 48MHz and paired with up to 64kB SRAM and 256kB Flash, it is suitable for most IoT applications.

MAX-M10 by
u-blox

The MAX-M10 series is built on the ultra-low-power u-blox M10 GNSS platform, which provides exceptional sensitivity and acquisition times for all L1 GNSS systems. The extremely low power consumption of less than 25 mW in continuous tracking mode allows great power autonomy for all battery-operated devices, such as asset trackers, without compromising on GNSS performance.
