LoRaWAN is an RF standard for IoT devices to connect to the internet.

The Things Network Munich

We are a official The Things Network Community. There's a regular meetup in the third Week (one Evening) each month, 19:00, at the MuMaLab (online via Jitsi since Covid19).

We are gathering money for community operated gateways, infrastructure and our brand new Application Platform: Patreon Page

TTN Mapping

ttnmapper.org allows to create a coverage map of the TTN LoRaWAN network. You can take a LoRaWAN node, either with integrated GPS, or pair it with a smartphone, and gather coverage data.

A node with GPS is nice, because it's more independent. An ideal candidate is the TTGO T-Beam dev board, which combines an ESP32, GPS module and a LoRa module, as well as a battery and potentially an OLED display as well.

Note that there are different versions of the T-Beam board, requiring different Pin settings.
