Florence, could you explain in a few words what the IOWA LwM2M Android application is?
The IOWA Client App is an LwM2M demonstration application for Android smartphones. It can be set up in just a few minutes and allows a client-server interaction thanks to the LwM2M Standard technology. The user can recover and analyze sensor data in an interoperable way. It is a great tool to demonstrate how LwM2M works and the interest of standard data models and device management services.
As someone with experience developing IoT applications, could you tell us the benefits of using the IOWA client application?
Today, if you want to develop an IoT solution operating with different sensors, you need to adapt your application according to its sensor.
Proprietary solutions and fragmentation drives up development costs and creates maintenance hurdles. IOWA by abstracting developers from device-level specificity easing solution development, speeding time-to-market, and easing maintenance overhead.
Another IOWA advantage is security is integrated at every level of the solution. Device authentication is required to add new sensors onto the IoT network. Communication layers between all the IoT elements are secured using light but powerful cryptographic algorithms. All done to prevent data interception, falsification, and hijacking.
Why should Smart City or Smart Building Manager consider IoTerop IOWA Client App for their IoT project?
Smartphone sensors represent a potentially huge asset to help our communities monitor and manage public services and resources more efficiently.
Imagine street lights coming on as a mother walks with her child. As the mother and child vacate the space, the lights go back off. Both citizens and the city benefit through increased security and lower electricity bills. Integrating the IOWA client into your smart city app could create new opportunities to control better public lighting, temperatures, noise levels, or air quality, measure traffic, monitor street conditions … in real-time!
Corporate work-space and work culture are also changing before our eyes. Workforces are increasingly mobile and no longer work just 9-to-5. As a result, managing work-spaces have never been more challenging. An employee application with IOWA client services installed could allow an employer to passively manage facility operations such as lighting, temperature, occupancy, etc., all via physical presence.
