The LoRa technology was developed to enable low-power, high-range wireless sensor transmission. Two recent papers from the research group at the TLC&RS lab [1,2] have shown that a simple RSSI-based method can be used for localizing LoRa IoT sensors. Article [1] has been one of the most read paper of the Wiley Internet Technology Letters in 2018-2019, and recently the dataset used in this work has been included in the 2020 GitHub Archive Program. Details of the two papers follow.

TEAMS room

Prof. Paolo Gamba is going to deliver an invited lecture at the Istituto di Fisica Applicata of CNR in Florence on this coming Thursday, Oct. 26. The seminar is devoted to explain why the use of multiple sensors is mandatory in urban areas, at multiple spatial and geographical scales. It will also provide a few results or urban area extent characterization at the regional/national level for different urban areas in the world, considering fusion of Sentinel-1 (SAR) and Sentinel-2 (multispectral) data, as well as Sentinel-1 (SAR) and Night-time lights data.

Prof. Paolo Gamba attends the IEEE MTT-S Administrative Committee (AdCom) meeting in Bruges (Belgium) to sign the Sister Agreement between MTT-S and GRSS. As GRSS President, he fostered the connection among GRSS and other IEEE Societies, and GRSS is going to sign another Agreement with the Antenna and Propagation Society (AP-S) before the end of the year. GRSS is very keen to work together with other communities within and outside IEEE to develop common initiatives.

Today Prof. Gamba has been invited to make a presentation about urban remote sensing using thermal bands at the "Infrared techniques and applications for aerospace" workshop (technical program available here , sponsored by the STEPHANIE EU Interreg project. His presentation focuses in novel applications of thermal bands in urban remote sensing, including urban heat island and air pollution monitoring.
