Abstract: The long range and low-power capability of LoRaWANTM combined with the flexibility and ease of use of The Thing Network’s open source data network makes this one of the easiest ways for an embedded engineer to create an end-to-end IoT solution.

In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to send sensor data from a low cost, low-power sensor all the way to a user application. The class will walk through connecting a LoRaWAN-enabled endpoint through a LoRaWAN gateway to The Things Network’s servers and finally to an end user application.

Upon completion, attendees will be equipped to deploy each piece of this IoT solution.


RSVP is required for this event. Please visit https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/179788 for more details and to register.

FEES: All $29.95 + 13% HST
