The lack of cellular or radio coverage in mountainous regions drives a need for alternate communication or data transmission systems in such areas. We used our proprietary LoRa-based GEO-WAVE system to develop a system for monitoring remote wildlife traps (used for population control) and conducted field tests in a mountain region of Japan. The system achieved a maximum 160 km communication distance between a repeater and source device. Even in areas with poor line-of-site visibility, communication was widely successful due to the diffraction of radio waves. Other dead zones were easily eliminated by adding repeaters at strategic locations.
