Are you interested in learning about the LoRa and LoRaWAN communication protocol?
This course is for you!
Learn in the easiest way about this type of communication used for IoT with our instructor Andres Sabas.
From the basics, hands-on practice and a great final project will help you better understand this amazing field of communications.
This course includes our powerful BastWan, our board with a powerful RAK4260 ready to be used in IoT and with Feather format compatible with Arduino and Wings type Feather.
Goal: Learn how to use the LPWAN communication protocol for implementation in the internet of things projects using development boards and learn how to make graphical interfaces in the cloud.
Target audience: Professionals, teachers and students taking the last engineering subjects in the areas of Mechatronics, Electronics, ICT’s and related areas with an interest in learning how to implement the Lora and LoraWAN communication protocol between devices for data transmission and reception applied to IoT.
Duration: 8-10 hours
Tools, Material or Software: Lora-LoraWAN Kit.
