LoRa™ shield for Arduino™ is a long range transceiver on a Arduino shield form factor, compatible with Grove modules and based on Open source library.

It can be used, as suggested application, to control a geographically distributed automation system like a road lighting system or similar.

It is based on the Aurel XTR8LR100 module:

RTX-LONG-RANGE radio transceiver half-duplex, offers improved performance, as such as longer RF range up to 3 Km, operates in European band 869,4÷869,65 MHz free licensed with no government taxes.

The high sensitivity level (-118 dBm) joined with its typical ERP (500 mW) can assure a budget-link around 145 dB, improving communication distance of 4-5 times better compared with traditional 10 mW LPD devices.

    868 MHz is a pretty high frequency. Thin obstacles could reduce the range considerably
