Abstract

The Wireless Communications Networks Section, from the Department of Electronic Systems at Aalborg University, Denmark, has successfully deployed, in collaboration with a number of Danish local industrial partners and the municipality of Aalborg, a LoRa network in the Gigantium multi-arena center. The initial aim of this network is to serve as an integrated multiarena indoor environment monitoring wireless system, in contrast to the existing cabled solutions based on bus communication systems for each of the individual arenas. In addition, the network also enables usage monitoring of arenas and meeting rooms. The final setup is comprised of 33 multi-sensor nodes distributed across the multiple arenas, and 4 gateways, which provide macroscopic diversity to the wireless system, ensuring a high level of reliability. The setup is already operational, but still open for optimization. The deployed network will serve as a testbed for research in the wireless, and indoor environment domains.
