The goal of this activity is to introduce the extensive services of ThingPark Community (TPC), the Arduino development environment (Arduino IDE 2.0), a user-friendly integrated development environment (IDE), and an Internet of things (IoT) module (Arduino MKR WAN 1310) to make a simple “homebrew”.
This exercise will enable you to use the Arduino IDE with an Arduino MKR WAN 1310 board to send a LoRaWAN® packet to the Actility TPC. This exercise does not require prior knowledge of the Arduino environment or prior experience working with TPC. Subsequently, a deep understanding of computer hardware or software development is not required to successfully perform the activity.
This cookbook will, in a nutshell, demonstrate how to set up a whole LoRaWAN® solution using free services without any prior experience. Additionally, you can use any LoRaWAN® compatible sensor in this activity with minor modifications.
The objective of this solution is to use an IoT device (Arduino MKR WAN 1310) to send LoRaWAN® packets and view them in a web browser.
