Some integrated circuits or modules providing wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Public Land Mobile Radio aka 2G/3G/4G, etc.) or satellite positioning, can host some customer code. Below, some of them: Continue reading “Some programmable wireless ICs and modules”
This post explains how to start using a mangOH Green board, and to connect it to Sierra Wireless AirVantage. Some knowledge of Linux OS is required.
mangOH, Legato and AirVantage documentation is good, so I won’t provide all details. My aim is more to provide a broad view, so that you know how to use the existing documentation. Continue reading “Starting with a mangOH Green board”
This post explains how to transmit data over French Orange LoRaWAN network using a SODAQ ExpLoRer board. Continue reading “Connecting SODAQ ExpLoRer to Orange LoRaWAN network”
This article presents the steps I followed to upgrade the firmware of a Sierra Wireless WP8546 used in a mangOH Green board. Continue reading “Updating WP85xx firmware with mangOH Green”
This post explains how to use ST LoRaWAN development kit to transmit data over French Orange LoRaWAN network. We will use a sample source code from ST, which we will compile and link using System Workbench for STM32, based on Eclipse. Continue reading “Connecting ST LoRaWAN development kit to Orange LoRaWAN network”
In this article, I maintain a list of various (private or public) organizations that are active in the field of standards that can be used by the Internet of Things. For each organization, a what and a who sections are provided. The source of information is the organization’s website.

This is the fourth year I give my classes about the Internet of Things, to postgraduate students of a Telecom and Electronics Master of the University of Nice (France). From six hours for previous years, my course slot increased to nine hours. Consequently, I was able to spend more time on some important topics, like communications and embedded software. And I introduced two new sections: big data and security.
The new edition of the presentation I use as a support is available on SlideShare.
Twenty years ago, it wasn’t easy to find low-cost microcontroller boards. Nowadays, that’s almost the opposite: every month, several new boards appear. Some of them, providing wireless connectivity, are tagged as IoT boards, and can be used for the design of your next IoT device. Continue reading “IoT device development kits”
Munic.Box is a wireless OBD device for vehicles, designed by Mobile Devices, a company that designed several other devices (C4, Dreevo, etc.)
The Munic.Box is highly configurable. It can monitor many vehicle parameters (location, speed, acceleration, etc.) in real time, including some OBD data. Data is sent to CloudConnect, a communication server that can forward received data to your own application, thanks to a webhook. Continue reading “Munic.Box data”
