Abstract

The use of LPWAN (Low Powered Wide Area Network) technologies in the scope of the Internet of Things have become the best alternative to send data between devices and cloud systems. Among these technologies, LoRa stands out as a novel and promising system that could be used in areas with a high device density, and in locations where other technologies do not provide enough communications range. In the past, most research works have made experiments in static scenarios, without taking the mobility of the things into account.
