Abstract:During disasters, communication is utmost important as it is the lifeline of many mobile medical units such as firefighters, paramedics, search and rescue teams, medical strike teams and other first responders. From hurricanes, to tsunamis, to wildfires and earthquakes, communications by radios, cellphones and satellites are the primary modes of communication. But sometimes, based on the severity, these modes of communications become inoperable. Mobile medical unit rely on accurate information communication to provide proper assessment and care when responding. This is where LoRa and LoRaWAN technology comes into play. LoRa is wireless radio frequency and LoRaWAN is the network. The purpose of this experiment and study is to determine the effectiveness of LoRa and LoRaWAN within a Mobile Medical Unit (MMU). The focus will be, if LoRa and LoRaWAN technology has the capability to communicate accurate information from the field to base station.
