I’ve been trying to get into LoRa and LoRaWAN for my masters thesis and this semester I’ve decided to process theoretical part, and to make a demo.
I got the P-NUCLEO-LRWAN1 already, but I’m realizing, that I might need something more, as there is no gateway in reasonable distance from me (I am situated in Košice, Slovakia, EU).
Goals for my Demo: I want to transmit a test message from my node, to my server.
- I presume I will need to get myself a gateway, will this suffice? seeed 113990658
- If not, do you have advice for better / different gateway? Further on into the thesis, I’d like to make a smaller network in my city, within 2km radius (I live in apt that oversees most of the city)
-Would it be more suitable to initiate a community in the city as university?
- I’ve seen information, that LoRa can go up to 100s of km, is that really possible for a commercially available and affordable HW? Because from what I’ve read it’s more of a theoretical information than practical one
Thanks for help!
