Systematic Literature Review : Proyek LoRa dan LoraWAN dalam Penerapannya

Mochammad Haldi Widianto


The first technology is to communicate with the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), but this technology can only perform near-distance sensing and processing, in contrast to the Internet of Things (IoT) which can perform Internet-based long-distance communication. Low-Power Wide-Area-Network (LPWAN) is a low power consumption but long range technology. One technology that is widely used is LoRa and its open access utilizes LoRaWAN, because it has many advantages. There have been many studies on LoRa, LoRaWAN and surveys or reviews, but not many have focused on reviews for their application, not just testing. In this study, the author wants to review the application of LoRa and LoRaWAN by utilizing the Systematic Literature Review (SLR), with the initial search phase getting 1314 and the end result is getting 45 studies taken from IEEE Explorer, ACM and Indonesian Paper (Google Scholar). Then the researcher presents a discussion regarding the application of LoRa and LoRaWAN in several fields such as Health, agriculture, etc.
