Leveraging Wake-Up Radios in UAV-Aided LoRa Networks: Some Preliminary Results on a Random-Access Scheme

Shashank M. S. Panga, Siddhartha S. Borkotoky

We present a transmission scheme aimed at integrating wake-up radios (WuR) into LoRa sensor networks featuring UAV-mounted gateways. The sensors are informed of the UAV's arrival with the help of WuR, followed by sensor-to-UAV data transfer with frequency and spreading-factor hopping. The proposed scheme provides significant energy savings at the sensors while maintaining similar reliability levels compared to a scheme in which Class B LoRa beacons are used to perfectly synchronize the sensors with the UAV's data-collection window.
