Communication restrictions can be incredibly limiting. One of the mentors we met gave us the idea to look into LoRa technology, which became part of our final design.
What it does
It utilizes LoRa transmitters paired with Wi-Fi repeaters to transmit text messages over large distances. The repeaters are deployed via drone.
How we built it
Our conceptual design was put together using our knowledge of communication systems.
Challenges we ran into
It was difficult at first to come to a consensus about what project to do and how to approach the design challenge. After aligning ourselves with a single issue we were able to put our design together successfully.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being organized in our problem solving techniques.
What we learned
We learned how to optimize our time spent on given tasks. We also learned about LoRa transmissions, drone payloads, and web app development.
What's next for SkyNet Rapid Deployment Wireless Communication Network
The future of SkyNet consists of prototyping, testing, and refining. The team is passionate about this specific design solution and is planning on taking the idea further. Potential investors will help realize this solution so that it can be implemented in real life.
