The Internet of Things (IoT) has as its basic concept to connect many different devices via the Internet so that data exchange can take place. Due to increasing automatization, networked devices are already being used in all sectors. They can be found in industry, agriculture, healthcare, private households and many other areas. What role does embedded software play here and what challenges must be mastered in software development?

Flexibility and quick reaction are key elements for modern and efficient IoT networks. Depending on infrastructure conditions and network coverage, one technology is not enough to run an IoT network efficiently. So, another solution is needed! Within a multi-stack, several communication technologies are combined for wireless data transmission. In this way, stacks can be selected to suit the use case. Once set up, the various protocols can be individually controlled during operation.

The agriculture sector is increasingly engaged in digitizing processes that are cumbersome and time-consuming to implement manually. In our use case, we focused on Smart Dairy Farming. In our video, we show how digitization can work in agriculture and how exactly Protocol Stacks from STACKFORCE can support this. The use case illustrates the benefits for the end user of networking devices on the farm.

LoRaWAN® is a promising technology for long-range radio networks, transporting small amounts of data over long distances. The application scenarios range from small integrations such as monitoring a “milk can” to large industrial plants with extensive monitoring of the entire plant. With a recognized standard and extensive networks, projects with LoRaWAN® can be realized almost anywhere in the world.

We take a closer look at the use case "smart swimming pool technology". The basic requirement for running a swimming pool is a permanently good water quality. In addition, information on the state of the water quantity is also an important indicator for a smooth bathing operation. What are the benefits of Smart Metering in the area of swimming pool technology and how can STACKFORCEs Protocol Stacks be used for this purpose?

Protocol Stacks have one goal: the automation of previously manually controlled operational processes. Using a microcontroller together with a wireless chip or radio interface, the Protocol Stack is integrated in a meter or sensor to enable it to transmit data via radio. But how exactly does it work to integrate a Protocol Stack into a device and what are the benefits of networking the devices?
