Implementation of 6LoWPAN using ESP32-devkitc v4

Postby myesp32demo » Tue Sep 18, 2018 12:17 am

Hey Guys,
I am trying to develop a mesh network using 6lowpan with ESP32-devkitc v4 board.
It would be really kind if you guys suggest me how to proceed.
I have crawled all the Github but couldn't found any suitable solution.
Now I am not sure, whether I can use this board for 6lowpan or not.
Thanks for helping.

6lowpan normally is run over 802.15.4, the ESP32 does not support that out of the box (doesn't have the radio for it).

Thanks a lot for your reply.
Do you have any recommendation of dev board for both Mesh Networking and 6LoWPAN.
I want to compare them using several factors.
Thanks

One way possible for now is 6LoWPAN over BLE RFC7668. I did try myself with raspberry pi 3 (with forced ble activated) and it does work. Check out Benjamin Aigner work at https://es.technikum-wien.at/aignerb/es ... 668-public for esp-idf library you need to import BTstack library to inside folder "components" just follow his instructions.
