What is this

This is a Java application that sends airborne particulate matter measurement data from TheThingsNetwork and forwards it to sensor.community (formerly Luftdaten).

It is used in combination with my LoraWanDustSensor: the sensor sends measurement data to TheThingsNetwork, this application picks up the data from TheThingsNetwork and forwards it to sensor.community and to opensensemap.org.

Requirements

You need the following:

  • a server that is always on and connected to the internet, can be Linux or Windows
  • a Java installation (JDK to compile), at least version 8
  • some configuration on TheThingsNetwork side
  • some configuration of my application (YAML file)

Compilation

To compile the software:

  • clone the software from my github archive

...

  • enter the LoraLuftdatenForwarder/gradle directory

cd LoraLuftdatenForwarder/gradle

  • run the gradle script to build the software

./gradlew assemble

Installation

Unzip the distribution file somewhere on your system. I put it in my home directory, for example

 cd
 tar xvf code/LoraLuftdatenForwarder/LoraLuftdatenForwarder/build/distributions/LoraLuftdatenForwarder.tar
