As part of my external semester at 52°North, I am involved in a project in which we develop a web crawling solution for multilingual discovery of environmental data sets.
Currently, the Android application for enviroCar can record tracks only when it is connected to the OBD-II adapter through Bluetooth. What if the user does not have a working OBD-II adapter? What if Bluetooth is not working in user’s mobile phone? In both the cases, the enviroCar app will be of no use to the user. This limits the usage of the app to a great extent. In my Google Summer of Code 2018 project, I want to add plain GPS based recording of a track in the enviroCar Android application. This will increase the usability of the enviroCar app and simultaneously increase the collection of data in the enviroCar server, which can be used to analyze traffic.more >
Freezing temperatures, icey winds – 52°North braved the arctic weather to participate in Münster’s Firmenlauf this past Saturday.
In this year’s Student Innovation Challenge held by 52°North, I participated with a software project aiming to extend the open sensor web with a new way to transmit sensor observations. The 8-week challenge under the topic ‘Bridging IoT and Sensor Web Applications’ enabled me to deepen my knowledge on LoRaWAN connected sensors while contributing to the Sensor Web community. My project’s deliverable is an integration between TheThingsNetwork and the OGC SensorWeb, adding the missing component to a full open source stack for LoRaWAN connected sensing platforms.more >
