Method and System for Utilizing Long Range Wireless Network Technology (LoRA) to Trigger a Drone Relay System for Emergency Services

Disclosed is a method and system for utilizing a Long Range Wireless Network Technology (LoRA) to trigger a drone relay system for emergency services. The method and system integrates a low power LoRA networking technology with drones in a specified region of the LoRA to work in a relay mode for delivering emergency services required within short distanced.

Figure 1 illustrates a method and system for managing drone and LoRA transmitter by an application in cloud.

Figure 1

As illustrated in Figure 1, IoT is integrated with cloud services via a geographical Application Programming Interface (API) cloud services and a drone is integrated with cloud services via resource API. Further, a physical trigger at LoRA points of presence enables an emergency service location to be identified.

In some embodiments, the method and system utilizes a mobile application (app) to communicate with LoRA via Bluetooth when there are no other communication means.
