LoRa Physical Layer Evaluation for Point-to-Point Links and Coverage Measurements in Diverse Environments
This paper focuses on Point-to-Point LoRa connections. We report on coverage measurements performed in three distinct environments, i.e., coastal, forest and urban. Our field experiments demonstrate coverage up to 1 km with antennas at only 1.5 m height in an urban scenario. In free Line-of-Sight (LoS) this coverage is extended to 4 km. Based on these results, we are developing a path loss model in future work. The developed hardware and software including measurements are open-source.
