LoRaWAN Networking Study

by Dr Andrew Wixted

This white paper documents some of the experiments that were carried out when initially setting up a LoRaWAN network in Glasgow. Prior to setting up the network some experiments were conducted measuring the range of the LoRa technology in a built up area.

RF Energy Harvesting Study

by Dr Andrew Wixted

This is a brief introduction to Ambient RF Energy Harvesting. It doesn't explore the available literature or do an indepth analysis of the various techniques. There are a number of potential sources of RF energy including broadcast radio and television and mobile phone base stations. Energy harvesting has been previously demonstrated using these sources.

LoRa Range Survey

by Dr Andrew Wixted

LoRa is a low-power wireless technology operating in unlicensed ISM bands. It is one of several competing technologies aimed at capturing a segment of the IoT market for cost sensitive, low data rate IoT applications. To assess the viability of the technology a survey was carried out across the Glasgow CBD using different base station locations.

LoRaWAN Performance Study

by Dr Andrew Wixted

There are four generic IoT scenarios that cover most LoRaWAN use-cases. Not unexpectedly, since LoRaWAN was designed for this, these scenarios will align with different LoRaWAN classes and modes of operation.
