IoT LPWAN Network for Smart Metering Application and Remote Monitoring

.
.

Background

Advancement in the Internet of Things (IoT) for remote monitoring and control using IoT devices gains much attention recently. Smart meters still face many challenges due to problems linked to communication mechanism such as operating cost, low date rate and low range. To address this issues, smart metering can be implemented with the LoRaWAN protocols.  

The thesis aims for the implementation of smart meter embedded systems in integration with LoRa as end device. The power consumption data are collected and transmitted remotely to a server, where they will be stored and fed to a decision support and online monitoring system.
