My name is Pascal Bodin. I started developing systems integrating connected objects in the 90’s. Today, the trendy acronym used to describe most of these systems is IoT (Internet of Things).
I have designed, developed and delivered many systems, under tight resource and time constraints. I ensured smooth integration of various wireless technologies. I designed several devices, and developed associated SDK (Software Development Kit) and communication stacks.
I hold a Master of Engineering from the French graduate engineering school Telecom Bretagne (now IMT Atlantique). I hold two granted patents, and three pending ones, in the field of connected devices. I’m a part time lecturer at the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, where I speak about IoT.
My experience encompasses the three technical fields required to design reliable IoT systems: communication systems, electronics, software development. And I am well-experienced in integrating components from these fields.
As an independent contractor, I can help you putting your IoT project on the right track, with following assistance:
- advice regarding use cases, types of connectivity, application-level protocols, etc.
- development of proofs of concept or prototypes, and delivery of the associated codebase, which can then be used to jump-start the development of your product
Additionally, when an on-going project faces technical difficulties relating to device connection, I can assist with audits of the technical architecture and of the communication layer code, with the definition of specific test procedures, with the development of dedicated tools, etc.
