A study of using AODV protocol in LoRa Mesh network

Van Dai Pham, Tran Duc Le, Ruslan Kirichek
In this paper, we consider using the LoRa technology to expand sensor network coverage in the development of smart sustainable cities. A model of a LoRa mesh network is proposed using the AODV protocol to route data flow between nodes. With a simulation model developed based on OMNET++, a series of computer experiments was carried out with changing various parameters. In the results of the experiments, the end-to-end delay and packet loss ratio were analysed in the dependence on the number of nodes and packet size in the network.
