The need for data collection from sensors dispersed in the environment is an increasingly important problem in the sector of telecommunications. LoRaWAN is one of the most popular protocols for low-power wide-area networks (LPWAN) that is made to solve the aforementioned problem. The aim of this study is to test the behavior of the LoRaWAN protocol when the gateway that collects data is implemented on a flying platform or, more specifically, a drone. This will be pursued using performance data in terms of access to the channel of the sensor nodes connected to the flying gateway. The trajectory of the aircraft is precomputed using a given algorithm and sensor nodes’ clusterization. The expected results are as follows: simulate the LoraWAN system behavior including the trajectory of the drone and the deployment of nodes; compare and discuss the effectiveness of the LoRaWAN simulator by conducting on-field trials, where the trajectory design and the nodes’ deployment are the same.
