I’m not sure whether I should be posting here or r/sailing because it pertains to both, but I’m looking to install some sensors around my 31′ sailboat. I have some experience with Raspberry Pi and Arduino. But I’m wondering what other ecosystems would be better to create an array of sensors that all communicate with the main server on board the boat. I’m currently considering creating a Particle mesh network with one main board that communicates with the server. I also have looked into LoRa, but I’m thinking that maybe it wouldn’t be a good use of LoRa if the distance between the sensors and the server really isn’t that far. I’m open to any other ideas as well. Thoughts?
