DIVES - testings the signal strength of project LoRa network

The Dives project tested the coverage of LoRa base stations installed in Kokkola and Kaustinen water towers in different areas of municipalities. The tests were carried out by driving on the roads of the areas and using the LoRa network tester to capture the GPS coordinate / LoRa signal data and send them to the DiVes project application.

This resulted in a rough coverage map for the actuators of the LoRa network. The information can be used if a regional LoRa network is planned: how many base stations are needed, are there any tough coverage areas etc.
