Providing embedded devices with connectivity options changed from a “nice to have feature” to a “must have feature” in the last decade. This resulted in a broad development of wired/wireless communication devices, communication/security protocols and server/backend solutions.
For DEMCON there is a wish to have an IOT demonstration platform where different technologies can be tested and demonstrated. Initial goals would be:
- Use a standard cloud based IOT server platform such as amazon or Microsoft azure and communicate with Ethernet connected device and research the different message protocols. Create a demonstration which allows devices configuration, readback of sensor data and device status and perform firmware upgrades.
- Extend the demonstration platform with a device which is able to communicate over a wireless communication network (4G). Within this aspect of your assignment, connectivity costs (data, keepalive) are important factors.
- Setup an own backed server which allows full control of the backend solution.
- Allow for future extend with for example LORA devices.
You will be a part of the software engineering department. During your internship, you will be supervised by your software engineering colleagues.
If you would like to receive more information concerning the internship, you can contact Frits Kuipers, software engineer (phone: 088 115 2000). If you would like to apply for the internship, please send your motivation letter and resume to Marleen Blanckenborg, recruiter (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
