This paper introduces a new approach for Internet of Things. This approach is based on the integration of IoT and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to establish a flying gateway that allows the extension of coverage of terrestrial IoT gateways. The approach is based on using several hardware devices as Arduino, Raspberry Pi boards and RAK 2445 board offering LoRa connectivity. This LoRa-based gateway is deployed on board of a drone flying over IoT nodes to gather and transmit data to a LoRa server. This system will extend the coverage of the terrestrial LoRa gateways allowing to reach remote and rural areas.

Abstract

This paper introduces a new approach for Internet of Things. This approach is based on the integration of IoT and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to establish a flying gateway that allows the extension of coverage of terrestrial IoT gateways. The approach is based on using several hardware devices as Arduino, Raspberry Pi boards and RAK 2445 board offering LoRa connectivity. This LoRa-based gateway is deployed on board of a drone flying over IoT nodes to gather and transmit data to a LoRa server. This system will extend the coverage of the terrestrial LoRa gateways allowing to reach remote and rural areas.
