Why does a gateway have a GPS attached it. What functionality does it enable.
- it saves you checking the location and putting it in your configuration.
- everyone knows where you are :-0
location is one thing, but i see that most of the modules have a PPS ( pulse per second ) module into them. Why is the timing so interesitng
Because it allows the development of technologies in lorawan that depend on highly accurate timing: beaconing, geolocation, node’s opening additional recieve windows for downlink messages (without uplink dependency), etc.
