  3. MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" (IOT) connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. With an Arduino-compatible wireless soc, e.g. Realtek Ameba1 (RTL8195/RTL8710) dev. Board, we can create a MQTT client that sends our sensor data to the cloud or any other MQTT clients. The source code is available on github at, https://github.com/ambiot/amb1_arduino/blob/master/Arduino_package/hardware/libraries/MQTTClient/examples/mqtt_basic/mqtt_basic.ino The things that need to take note of, · The "mqttServer" refers to the MQTT-Broker, we use the MQTT sandbox "test.mosquitto.org", it is provided by IBM eclipse for developers to test MQTT. · "clientId" is an identifier for MQTT-Broker to identify the connected device. · "publishTopic" is the topic of the published message, we use "outTopic" in the example. The devices subscribe to "outTopic" will receive the message. · "publishPayload" is the content to be published. · "subscribeTopic" is to tell MQTT-broker which topic we want to subscribe to. Here we can use a chrome plugin "MQTTLens" to be a second MQTT client. You can find it in Chrome Web Store at, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mq-tt-lens-the-best/cgmogjdjpnemdlijokkdomfapcodiohh?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon After setting up a “connection” and key in the same topics we used on Ameba, we should be able to see a “Hello World” message printed on the MQTT message console.
  4. Temperature and humidity are 2 of the most important factors affecting people’s comfort level in an enclosed space. The DHT humidity and temperature sensor can read the ambient temperature and humidity every 2-3 seconds, and then pass the data to Ameba who will forward them to the server using MQTT protocol. Whoever “subscribing” to the right topic gets the data almost instantaneously. Users can then adjust the aircon mode or temperature according to the readings received. An android phone was used as an MQTT client and the Ameba RTL8195 Dev. Board acted as another MQTT client communicating with the android phone. Both clients have to connect to the same MQTT server before proceeding to the next step. The DHT sensor updates its data every 10 seconds to stay as accurate as possible. Once sensor data is received, Ameba then “publishes” the data to the MQTT server where all clients “subscribing” to the right topic gets the data displayed on the console.

  5. This is a simple IoT project based on the “mqtt basic” example that comes with the Arduino package when you install the RTL8195 on Arduino IDE. In this project, simple passive components are used to aid in demonstrating the power of bidirectional communication of MQTT protocol which is widely used in modern IoT applications for its advantages in speedy response and lightweight. In the video, an android tablet was used as a MQTT client and our Ameba RTL8195. Board acted as another MQTT client communicating with the android tablet. Both client have to connect to the same MQTT server before proceeding to the next step, you may choose to set up own MQTT server or using an online free server.

  6. We live in an age where IoT is a growing phenomenon, and therefore we often come across terms like LoRa and LoRaWAN. Most people use these terms interchangeably as they seem alike. However, this is not perfectly true as they have some differences. In this article, we will take a look at the pertaining differences between LoRa and LoRaWAN. We will also look at some of their prospective applications, and prominent benefits. Before understanding the key differences, we will have to develop a keen understanding of some essential terminologies. LoRaWAN + BLE Technology for Location Solution An indoor location system is formed by integrating wireless communication, base station and inertial navigation positioning, and other technologies to identify and monitor the position of persons and objects in an indoor space. Common indoor wireless positioning technologies include WiFi, Bluetooth, infrared, ultra-wideband, RFID, ultrasound and Zigbee. but they are not ideal for accurate, low-cost, low power and long-range indoor location systems. Based on new generation BLE positioning and LPWAN technologies, we can provide a perfect and low-cost wireless location solution for both indoor and outdoor use by combining our LoRaWAN GPS tracker, BLE probe and Beacon product within the location system. How it works Scenario 1: For indoor positioning only, combine the Beacon and BLE probe. The BLE probe is placed in a fixed and known position where it will scan the nearby Beacon and send its MAC address, RSSI and raw data to the server. The Beacon position can be acquired using the Pythagoras theorem when the three BLE probes receive the same MAC address at the same time. Scenario 2: For both indoor and outdoor positioning, combine the LoRaWAN GPS tracker and BLE probe. The LoRaWAN GPS Tracker supports both BLE and GPS locations. The GPS positioning can be used for outdoor situations. With indoor situations, the LoRaWAN GPS Tracker can serve as a BLE beacon that can be scanned by the nearby BLE probe, which will send the information to the LoRaWAN server. The MOKOSMART LoRaWAN GPS Tracker position can be acquired using the Pythagoras Theorem when the three BLE probes receive the same MAC address at the same time.
  7. AI Smart agriculture control Device Abstract: Agriculture is the broadest economic sector and plays an important role in the overall economic development of a nation. Technological advancements in the arena of agriculture will ascertain to increase the competence of certain farming activities. Smart Farming is a farming management concept using modern technology to increase the quantity and quality of agricultural products. Farmers in the 21st century have access to LoRa, soil scanning, data management, and Internet of Things technologies, web. Our device focuses on the measurement of physical parameters such as soil moisture content, nutrient content, automatic irrigation, pH of the soil and automatic sent notification phone application that plays a vital role in farming activities. Keyword: Agricultural innovation, IoT, LoRa, Power Management, ARM, Data Management Introduction: Smart farming based on IoT technologies will enable growers and farmers to reduce waste and enhance productivity ranging from the quantity of fertilizer utilized to the number of journeys the farm vehicles have made. In IoT-based smart farming, a system is built for monitoring the crop field with the help of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, etc.) and automating the irrigation system. The farmers can monitor the field conditions from anywhere using smart app. IoT-based smart farming device is highly efficient when compared with the conventional approach. The applications of IoT-based smart farming not only target conventional, large farming operations, but could also be new levers to uplift other growing or common trends in agricultural like organic farming, family farming (complex or small spaces, particular cattle and/or cultures, preservation of particular or high quality varieties etc.), and enhance highly transparent farming. Now, let’s discuss the major applications of IoT-based smart farming device that are revolutionizing agriculture. Hardware: Soil Sensor: The Soil Moisture Sensor uses capacitance to measure the water content of soil (by measuring the dielectric permittivity of the soil, which is a function of the water content). Simply insert this rugged sensor into the soil to be tested, and the volumetric water content of the soil is reported in percent. Temperature sensor (DHT 11): Measure the Temperature and humidity Photoresistor (LDR): Check day or night position LoRa ARM development board : This is a low power single board computer inbuild Wi-Fi, LoRa connectivity also has Digital and analog pins. Smart Agriculture Device Features: 1.This device no need external power (inbuild 5-volt Power bank & solar cell), 2. real-time Soil Moisture sensor measure the soil and sent data to the Server, 3.Temperature, photoresistor measure the weather condition. 4. Both way communication (device can send notification & received command from web or app) 5. Dual control (Device ca run manual mode and automatic mode). 6. Dual communication (LoRa and wi-fi mode) System Hardware Implementation: First configure the FreeRTOS on EFB-REV1 board after successful configure of operating system we need configure GPIO library(J-Tag) to access the its GPIO. Install 5-volt solar cell and power bank for powerup the device 24x7. Soil Sensor connected to analog pin of A0, DTH11 connected to A3, Photoresistor connected to A6. Analog sensors measure data and sent via wireless media. EFB_REV1 development come with LoRa, Wi-fi also Bluetooth, for our project we used Wi-Fi and LoRa. For Wi- fi communication need a wifi receiver module which receive and sent sensor data to the cloud server. Another hand implemented the device for loRa communication (data send rang up to 5km), here we need a loRa receiver to receive and sent sensor data to the cloud server. Wi-Fi and LoRa connective protocol of our smart agriculture device uses depend on different location & situation. Firmware & Application software implementation: Application Software: Here we used cloud server to store the data, and help of Rest API sent the command to the device. Device firmware has two measure function (i) Manual mode: In manual mode device will work, user pre set value of the sensor in device using web or smart app. (ii) Automatic Mode: In automatic mode device sent the sensor value to cloud server and machine learning algorithm take decision according the data. Conclusion Thus, the IoT agricultural applications are making it possible for ranchers and farmers to collect meaningful data. Large landowners and small farmers must understand the potential of IoT market for agriculture by installing smart technologies to increase competitiveness and sustainability in their productions. With the population growing rapidly, the demand can be successfully met if the ranchers, as well as small farmers, implement agricultural IoT solutions in a prosperous manner.
