Technostacks has announced its IoT-Based Remote Monitoring Solution Project for one of its valued clients.
In this project, Technostacks client wanted to build and implement an innovative concept with IoT enabled remote monitoring solution. The client with this IoT solution concept wished to transform the face of beekeeping with a straightforward and pesticide-free approach. Using this IoT solution, they wanted to get rid of Varroa destructor mites in beehives and make the solution highly accessible to end-users through a simple to use application.
So, the client company needed to enable an innovative and game-changing technology, code-named “MiteNote,” which seeks to sterilize mites, thus removing them, however, also ensuring that the bees are not harmed with their approach.
The project involved a compostable circuit board that precisely applied heat right to the honeycomb cells by having a sense of the reproductive cycle of the bee broods. And further, sterilize mites by using a precise temperature range. Additionally, the board had sensors and heaters, facilitating the temperature patterns in each of its thirty-two zones. Identifying a specific design and practice, the solution turned on the heating in the picky zone for a definite period of time, which killed the mites that used to kill the bees.
The client wanted an application that can facilitate users to get better visibility into the circuit metrics and make temperature changes utilizing the iOS app. Here, the critical focus had to be on the application’s user-friendliness as most of the involved users would not be technology savvy. The UI and UX had to assist users in optimizing the application features and functionality in a trouble-free manner.
Technostacks development teams enabled the “MiteNote” circuit board to interface with the application over Bluetooth. Once the Bluetooth connection was made active, the application needed to scan the board to showcase and display the metrics. The development and design team had to collaboratively build a display with 32 elements (boxes) on it, with every box showing the related temperature.
Creating an app reading values from every sensor on the circuit board and showcasing it, with the change in the color on the boxes based on the temperature, was not a big challenge for the Technostacks team. Further, the app required functionality where the user could click on the heater component to increase or decrease the temperature and decide the time duration of the temperature changes. The scope also included creating software that constantly logs the temperature patterns to keep the user informed about the diverse variations.
The Technostacks team enabled all the essential requirements and further built an integrated Core Bluetooth Framework for scanning, connecting, reading, and writing the MiteNote circuit board through the application. This requirement facilitated the user to search for BLE devices, pick MiteNote, and connect to the board.
Other functionalities included wherein the app could display temperature values right from the MiteNote circuit and facilitated that the temperature was displayed in diverse colors. The mobile app development team at Technostacks built an integrated solution utilizing Objective C that catered to all client needs and turned the app easy to use. They further used iOS technologies to make the application iPad compatible. A step further, Technostacks developers even crafted a functionality wherein users can set-up temperatures for MiteNote boards right from the application.
“Our teams brought in the right functionalities with needed app features in swift time,” said Hansal Shah, Managing Director of Technostacks.
Technostacks team delivered an extensive series of features and functionalities to enable the app users and the client to use the company’s specialization in IoT software development and IoT hardware firmware development to successfully enable and launch the IoT based Remote Monitoring Solution.
