Date of the LoRa Hackathon

LoRa Hackathon, May 12/13. School of Engineeering, Bologna, Viale Risorgimento 2. Please register here by April 6 if you wish to receive information on the Hackathon. This is not a registration form. It is just a form to get your email address and name. The hackathon is currently open only to people understanding Italian. The rest of this post is therefore in Italian. ******************* Cerchiamo studenti che abbiano voglia di mettersi in gioco con una maratona di programmazione (dal sabato mattina alla domenica sera senza soluzione di continuità!) di piattaforme wireless LoRa per applicazioni IoT. Studenti che amino le sfide. La media dei voti non ci interessa. Ci interessa l’ambizione e il desiderio di imparare e di divertirsi con la tecnologia. Il Dipartimento DEI “Guglielmo Marconi” dell’Università di Bologna, in collaborazione con l’azienda Embit srl, organizza un Hackathon orientato allo sviluppo di applicazioni IoT su piattaforme hardware/software di Embit basate su tecnologia wireless LoRa. L’Hackathon è rivolto a tutti gli studenti o neolaureati dei Corsi...

Thesis proposal: IoT with LoRa

Based on the brand new Embit gateway to be located on the School Tower, we are willing to test its coverage by performing extensive measurements on all floors/parts of the Engineering School. Additionally, by developing some ad hoc boards, we might measure in the same areas a number of physical parameters like temperature, luminosity, humidity, etc, generating a large data set to be used for application purposes...

Embit donates to RN a LoRa gateway with network support

Since today we have a LoRa gateway in our lab, connected to the network server funcionalities required to have full LoRa service. It will be soon moved on the top of the Engineering School Tower. We have five accounts to feed the work of up to five students willing to perform experiments uding LoRa within the perimeter of our School. A number of development kits have also been donated by Embit, ready for use in RN lab!...

Four topics available for thesis in collaboration with Embit

The Radio Networks group, in collaboration with Embit srl (local company leader of LoRa technology in Italy), is seeking students willing to pursue a thesis on the following topics, all based on LoRa technology, one of the most successful technologies for IoT:   1) "Localisation of IoT Nodes in Smart Cities Through LoRa Networks". The work will be performed in phases: - study of the LoRaWAN protocol - design of suitable localisation algorithms applicable to the LoRaWAN network - implementation of the algorithm over a network server - test of the algorithm with Embit SW/HW platforms   2) "Network Protocols Design and Testing for Fast LoRa." Fast LoRa is a very recent evolution of LoRa technology working at 2.4 GHz. The differences with respect to LoRa require customisation of the LoRaWAN protocol stack. The work will include design of the protocol stack, implementation and test over development kits made available by Embit.   3) "Testing of an hybrid LoRaWAN-Zigbee network for IoT applications". The work will be based on Zigbee...
