The paper “Evaluation of LoRa Technology in Flooding Prevention Scenarios” authored by José Cecílio, Pedro M. Ferreira e António Casimiro, LASIGE integrated researchers, has been published at MDPI Sensors Journal, a top-ranked journal (IF: 3.275, h5-index: 104).
Several works deal with LoRa (Long Range) communications over land and in the presence of obstacles, but little is known about LoRa communication reliability over water. In this work we conducted several experiments, during a period of several weeks, using a real LoRa deployment to evaluate features related to data communication. We considered two deployment scenarios corresponding to countryside and estuary environments. Results for both scenarios are presented, compared and discussed in this paper.
