Raspberry Pi enthusiasts may be interested in a new piece of hardware which has been created by Dave Glover the form of a LoraWAN for Raspberry Pi with Worldwide frequency support.
LoraWAN is a media access control (MAC) protocol for wide area networks, Which has been created to enable allow low-powered devices to communicate with Internet-connected applications over long range wireless connections.
This project extends the base LMIC 1.6 implementation with 915 subband selection and demonstrates how to use the LMIC 1.6 LoRaWAN stack on a Raspberry Pi targeting the Dragino LoRa/GPS HAT and a Raspberry Pi Zero with a standalone Hope RFM95W LoRa module. Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for IBM’s LMIC 1.6 communication stack targeted to Raspberry Pi and Dragino LoRA/GPS HAT hardware version 1.4.
