Data Transmission with Ease
In last November's issue I hinted at our laboratory working on projects using the LoRa radio protocol. This protocol allows data to be transmitted over wide distances in a highly energy-efficient way. In the present issue you will find two introductions to this exciting technology. The Elektor LoRa Node is a flexible and configurable module that enables you to render your own projects "LoRa compatible". As an example application - also suitable of course for full replication - we developed a remote control capable of switching an electric appliance over distances of several hundred meters, with feedback on the sender. As befits LoRa, such a node can be operated autonomously in the field (using Li-Ion cells). -- more -- ..
