OTA with LoRa

Post by forrestjon » Mon Nov 16, 2015 3:10 pm

Hello,

I am designing a Waspmote based system which uses several LoRa Sensor Nodes.
I would like to incorporate OTA with these Nodes.
The LoRa modules are the only wireless connectivity available on these sensor nodes.

There is one Waspmote board in the system which acts as a Hub.
This Hub has LoRa, GSM/GPRS, and Wifi modules installed.

I expect there is a way to download the Firmware update to the GSM equipped Waspmote board and then send the update to the LoRa Sensor Nodes.

Before I dive into the low level API's I would like to know if there is an already known solution to this issue.

Could someone give me some direction in terms of how to incorporate OTA capability for the
LoRa Sensor Nodes?


Thank You,

Forrest

Hi,

OTA programming is not implemented for the SX1272 module. Due to its low datarate, it would take much time to send one program. If you want incorporate OTA, you have to use another module.

Also you can make a code that changes depending of a command that you send it.

Hi

I'd like to know if there's any module that suppport OTA?
is it the case for "LoRaWAN module for Arduino and Raspberry Pi - 868 MHz [XBee Socket] " ?

Hi,

with LoRaWAN OTA programming is not possible because the downlink data rate is very low too.

In OTA guide, you can find all the modules that can use OTA:
