The Importance of IoT Device Testing

The Wireless Challenge IoT connectivity depends on a variety of wireless standards. For instance, a medical device may need to interface with WiFi, 4G, Bluetooth, and/or Zigbee. The device will need to work regardless of electromagnetic or physical interference while meeting the highest security standards. These considerations make life challenging for software developers. Connectivity and infrastructure must inform the design on applications. Software tests will need to pre-preemptively tackle questions such as “What happens to

Bluetooth for Automated Irrigation Systems

Efficient water management is a growing concern for farmers living in arid or semi-arid environments. Using sensors to detect soil conditions removes sources of human error when it comes to the efficient and productive use of water resources. Bluetooth is a low cost method of communication between in-field sensors and base processors which use software to control sprinklers and drip irrigators. BLE: 4x the Range, 2x the Speed, 8x the Data Bluetooth has become increasingly

Using IoT to Pimp Your Chateau

Chalets, cottages, cabins are synonymous with a low-tech lifestyle. For most people, a retreat to these spaces brings to mind shoddy cell-service, spotty LTE, and boxy television sets from the days of Yore. The low-tech lifestyle has charm. Playing life on hard mode has a way of putting city life into perspective. And although many would balk at the idea of bringing technology into their retreat – other cottage owners are integrating ad-hoc technology to

The Future of Food: IoT and Food Security

  Agri-Tech Offers Hope for Food Security The world’s population will exceed 9.1 billion by 2050. Farmers will need to harness all the government and technological supports available to ensure production is raised by 70% to accommodate all the new mouths. Some scientists are saying the situation is more tenuous than originally thought. 2023 is expected to be the crossover point when we will no longer produce enough calories for our population.   To meet
