GMote stands for Generic Mote.
It is meant to be a flexible
(i.e. applicable in different scenarios for different purposes
utilizing different sensors)
IoT Node using the LoRa wireless data communication technology.
The first test version was based on the Arduino Pro Mini, which requires very low power if you remove the LED and bypass the power regulator. Once this proved to be a good idea, a slim version of the Mini Pro board (i.e. the ATMega 328P) has been integrated and routed on the GMote circuit board. At first, the Dragino LoRa Bee was the transceiving unit since we had good results with respect to range and usability. In later versions, the relevant HopeRF modem (RFM95) chip was likewise integrated on the board due to availability and price.
There are two versions, a small and a mini version, which provide different amount of pin headers to connect various sensors or even actuators.
The node is easily configurable via UART or LoRaWAN download frames. It started within the Arduino framework and tries to stay compatible to not loose the the huge developer scene.
Hardware, firmware, software and even 3D printable cases.
It's all free and you can use it without any restriction.
