Heterogeneous IoT Platform for Device Management and Environmental Sensor Data Gathering
Keywords:IoT platform, heterogeneous network architecture, smart devices, remote control, wireless sensor networks, IoT network protocols
In this paper, we propose a new IoT platform which supports the use of different wired and radio connections to manage devices and gather environmental sensor data. We discuss the pilot implementation of our new platform which deals with the smart control of air-conditioning devices in shopping malls. The building blocks of the platform – two types of electronic controllers of our own design – are described in detail. The Internet connectivity of the platform enables the use of an Internetbased control center for storing historical data, performing statistical analyses, making automated corrections in the device control and providing possibilities for remote control by human operators. The end goal of the platform development is to achieve cost savings and increase the level of comfort of customers and employees.
