Getting Up and Running with LoRaWAN™ Long-Range Networking
Wed 12 April 2017, 10:00 – 15:15 BST
IoT Seminar Series
The Studio, ic1, Liverpool Science Park, 131 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool L3 5TF 12th April 2017, 10:00am – 3:15pm
Please register your interest and apply to join Sensor City, Microchip and Arrow for this free, interactive design workshop.
Sensor City aim to help SMEs overcome many of the challenges they face in product development and allow them to fast-track the development of IoT products and services. The new Innovation Centre opens its doors in June 2017 and in addition to a demonstration area and project development space, we will offer regular technology seminars with high profile vendors to provide advice and guidance on how best to use their products to generate greater business efficiencies. The first in this series will take place in Liverpool Science Park, our temporary home until June.
Who Should Attend?
These workshops are aimed at experienced design engineers, keeping them up-to-date with the latest technical developments around connected devices and IoT.
This one is aimed at design engineers with an interest in designing long-range IoT solutions based on the LoRaWAN™ MAC Class A protocol. Regrettably the workshop is not suitable for current undergraduates or new graduates/students who do not hold the minimum level of hardware design experience.
Aims & Objectives
Over the course of the day, delegates will learn the basics of this long-range network structure, including the modulation scheme, and the parameters that allow this extraordinary range. In the morning, we will cover the theory in sufficient depth to allow you to start development (right away). After lunch, you’ll be up and running with the RN2483 LoRaWAN™ module, with a hands-on session working with the simple UART interface and connecting to a real LoRa™ network.
At the end of the day, you will have the skills needed to start your own development with this technology.
Delegates will be asked to bring their own laptop with some pre-installed software on the day. Software installation instructions will be sent prior to the event.
This is joint event from Sensor City, Microchip and Arrow, and your application information may be shared with all three organisations.
We’ll review your application and will be in touch to let you know if you’ve been successful in securing a place. Please note that because of the limited number of places, we’ll have to give priority to engineers with experience or a proven interest in this area
