An IOT device is a hardware that connects with various sensors in the enterprises or industries, collects data, preprocess, send them to cloud hosted IOT platform or an IOT application for further analysis and interpretation to present them for decision making or feed them for process efficiency and production improvement. The IOT devices should be developed with the support for IOT communication standards to communicate with different kinds of sensors in the industry and IOT devices should be communicating with each other.
An industry who wants to implement the IOT solution in their company may need to develop different kinds of IOT devices to collect data from various sensors from various locations. It is a time consuming for any IOT solution provider or IOT device developers to develop a new IOT device/solution quickly with support for various kinds of connectivity standards from the scratch.
Once the devices are developed and deployed, the IOT solution should provide a management console to view their devices, the sensors connected to devices and the data collected from them in an easily understandable format. The user who has the authority to manage the IOT devices to view the data and control the devices should be provided with easy to use user interfaces in web UI or smartphone Apps to control the devices. Developing such a management console from the scratch is time-consuming.
An IOT development platform with software development kits to provide APIs to develop IOT devices using commonly used open source IOT hardware can enable IOT solution developers, IOT device developers, and IOT consultants to quickly develop and implement IOT solutions with different kinds of IOT devices.
The IOT platform can also provide a management console to manage all the IOT devices, sensors and their data presented in a user editable formats with control options. The platform can be hosted in in-premises and(or) in the cloud and can connect with the various IOT applications analytical and management applications. This can enable developers to develop value-added IOT solutions quickly.
The software development kits provided in IOT development platform can also provide APIs to quickly develop security layer of IOT solution like TOR and Blockchain.
It enables you to do Design, Connect and Analyze your data using PAASMER’s IOT platform.
PAASMER’s SDK allows you to connect any sensors to existing IOT boards in the market like Raspberry Pi, Node MCU, and many other IOT boards. The PAASMER platform is hardware agnostic. The trial build will provide support for connecting sensors to RPi and Node MCU and supports languages like C and Python.
PAASMER SDK enables easy connectivity of your IOT devices to PAASMER cloud. The SDK allows communication of all the IOT devices with the PAASMER cloud. It works with all the popular platforms and supports multiple communication protocols. The trial version will support the Wi-Fi method of communication using MQTT protocol and RESTFUL APIs. The SDK allows managing all the devices connected to the PAASMER platform.
The PAASMER Developer Login enables the users to Analyze the data that is being sent from the devices and draw a meaningful conclusion out of it. There is also an option for Manual control of sensors based on inputs received.
Overview of PAASMER IOT platform
The PAASMER SDK for Embedded C, Python and ESP Open RTOS is a collection of source files that enables you to connect to the PAASMER IOT Platform. It includes the transport client for MQTT with TLS support. It is distributed in source form and intended to be built into customer firmware along with application code, other libraries, and RTOS.
The SDK’s simplifies access to the Pub/Sub functionality of the PAASMER IOT broker via MQTT. The SDK has been tested to work on the Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian Jessie and NodeMCU / Adafruit Huzzah. Support for Other SBC’s running any flavors of Linux would be available shortly. The SBC-SDK provides functionality to create and maintain a mutually authenticated TLS connection over which it runs MQTT. This connection is used for any further publish operations and allow for subscribing to MQTT topics which will call a configurable callback function when these topics are received. More information is available about the SDK’s at https://github.com/PAASMERIOT/
The PAASMER Developer Login provides the ability for the User to register, Login, View devices, sensor data and the ability to send control messages to the Edge hardware.
The PAASMER developer Login is available at http://developers.paasmer.co. Here the user can register for the free trial and upon verification of the credentials is allowed to Login.
After login, the user is directed to the various available SDK’s that he can download and edit the same to enable his devices to be connected to the PAASMER IOT platform.
Once the SDK’s are downloaded onto the devices and his credentials entered and the program is running, the device is connected the PAASMER IOT platform and starts sending sensor information.
This sensor information is available on the PAASMER Developer Login for viewing and base on the sensor information the User can take actions using the control feeds to control actuators.
