P1451.5.5 LoRa Working Group

Title: Standard for a Smart Transducer Interface for Sensors and Actuator — Wireless Communication Protocols and Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) Formats – LoRa Protocol

Scope: The standard defines a smart sensor interface using Long-Range (LoRa) protocol. A LoRa system includes the end devices, gateways, network servers and application servers. This standard defines the standardized design and specifications of LoRa smart sensor interface to achieve data accuracy, interoperability (plug-and-play) based on the IEEE 1451.0 transducer services, security, privacy and harmonized performance of LoRa systems. In addition, this standard includes the wireless transducer interface module (WTIM) or end devices, network capable application processor (NCAP) (gateway device, or 1451 server), and application (1451 client), and appropriate transducer electronic data sheet (TEDS). The standard defines the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) between WTIM and NCAP (1451 server), secure and private communication, harmonized radio frequency planning. In summary, this standard provides guidance of smart sensor system interface to improve the data accuracy, security, privacy and quality-of-services (QoS).
