Debugging wireless mesh networks mainly depends on observers, namely embedded systems e.g., Raspberry Pi boards, which are connected with each other by infrastructure backbones, e.g., WiFi or Ethernet. These observers can record loggings with timestamps and send them back to a server. However, for long distance communication networks, e.g., LoRa networks, debugging with such infrastrure-based approaches is expensive, inflexible, and even unfeasible. Thus, we build ChirpBox, an infrastructure-less LoRa testbed. ChirpBox is open source and under the license of CC BY-SA 4.0. The source code is available here.


This work is initiated by Xiaoyuan Ma (SARI, CAS, now SKF Group, China), Carlo Alberto Boano (TU Graz, Austria), and Ye Liu (NJAU, China).
