To start things off here, I’ll make a post about my summer project. For my Masters final project, which is over the summer, I’ve taken LoRaWAN Signal Mapping. The plan is to build a privacy-preserving IoT device to collect data about signal coverage across the city, and then train an AI to fill in the gaps.
The end result should be a cool map of coverage, which the aim is to make it useful enough that it can be effectively used to plan locations for additional gateways.
Currently, I’ve got some of the initial parts, and I’ll be dropping by University (tomorrow?) to pick up some more of the parts (yay, a Dragino LoRaWAN shield!). I’ve also started planning some of the backend - which is going to be a Node.js app that’s backed with SQLite. Database data is going to be primary keyed with random integers, and I’ll be scrubbing timestamps as well.
I plan on making a series of posts on my blog about my progress too.
