Hello

How can I test geo location fro the dev portal?

Cheers

Hi all,

Through trial&error I've found out that the network must control the data rate when testing geolocalisation.

Best regards,

Thanks for sharing your findings Bert! 🙂
Hi,

Is my interpretation correct that I see contradiction statements in the opening post regarding ADR?
I read the following two statements:

1) This connectivity plan uses forced ADR and the antenna diversity setting is 3. In addition, we recommend to switch-on ADR for the devices that are used for Geolocation.
2) Please use SF12 with ADR off for these test. Note that in the final solution, ADR has to be switched on!

Is statement 1) about the default setting for the device once geolocalisation is fully available and statement 2) for the testing phase you're currently in? So, for testing geolocalisation now, should ADR be switched off?

Best regards,
Bert

Hi,

- How can I be provisioned with geolocation tests?
- What is the latest planning on the geolocation availability in the production environment?

Best regards,
Bert

Hi Jeroen,

The system isn't capable to calculate height coordinates yet. But it's a feature on the roadmap with no estimated time of arrival!
Hi Michiel

Yes, it makes total sense. The IOT device can remain simple and the servers do the number crunching..

Would the system also be able to calculate height coordinates?

Jeroen

Hi Michiel,

If i understand this correctly, then the location information is sent from the device itself (fields DevLat and DevLon) via the API message.

Do you know if geolocation by triangulation via the gateways on the roadmap? This would free up space on the payload and still deliver functional, correctly timed geolocation of the device.

Greetz,

Hi Jeroen,

No you do not understand this correctly 🙂. I see there is some confusion about this so I added a new paragraph "Geolocation by triangulation" to the TS. What I mean to say is that this is triangulation. The API message are added by the core server, not by the device. No extra effort on the device side is needed.

Does this make sense?
