Lora is a wireless technology which enables the things(Internet of Things) to communicate over long distances without any repeaters. The long distances are in the order of kilometres!!
As an R&D organisation, we at Elementz made an effort to estimate the maximum range attainable on urban areas. The test was conducted at the heart of Trivandrum City, Kerala, India.
This is a non-metro city, but the urbanization caused the raising of huge buildings. Our company having one of our offices at Trivandrum was the central point of testing. We used two LoRA Ra-02 modules to carry out the experimentation, where one of the module acts as the receiver and other as a transmitter.
We have developed an Arduino compatible hardware to communicate to the LoRa chip which can be bought from our store(Product Link:https://www.elementzonline.com/Elementz-Arduino-LoRA-RA-02-AI-Tinker-WIRELESS-TRANSCEIVER-SX1278.This module which has builtin user led was very helpful in carrying out test. Once again Arduino Ecosystem come to the rescue on reducing the development time.
