Getting started with IoT

In this guide we are exploring IoT from a beginner’s point of view, aiming at building from scratch a simple IoT solution for collecting real time environmental data from our office and uploading it to the cloud, using of-the-shelf components and readily available online services. We composed it while working on a live demo for our IoT platform. You can see the live data from this implementation here.

Can the Raspberry pi acquire high frequency signals?

We bench marked two of the most popular python libraries. The best one managed to acquire signals with accuracy above 99% for frequencies up to 20 KHz. Above that frequency, its performance gradually deteriorates and at 110 KHz it cannot perform the task. Let’ take a closer look at the experiment.

From a R&D project to Atman IoT

From it’s initial steps up to today, our company, Kapa REN Ltd, has been focused on developing innovative technological solutions, that help its customers gain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

It was a great honor for us to be invited to participate in, the co-financed by GSRT research project, PV Auto Scout, which has helped us tremendously in shaping Atman IoT. Through our involvement with the academic world, we transitioned from theory to practice and from R&D to creating a fully fledged commercial product.

Introducing Atman IoT Platform as a Service

We are really excited to announce the launch of Atman IoT Platform as a Service (PaaS), focused on rapid prototyping of IoT solutions. Atman IoT PaaS aims at simplifying the process of developing and launching an IoT service by providing a ready to use solution for managing, analyzing and visualizing data from your IoT devices.

   

Atman IoT Fo.tsi (v2.0) is now available

Today marks the release of v2.0 of Atman IoT with code name Fo.tsi.

The following major changes were introduced:

  • New authentication & authorization. Auth token is now attached to Authorization Request Header and, hence, removed from url. Documentation
  • Request & Response objects. API end point request and response objects were standardized in order to ease integration to custom front ends and enable upcoming release of ready to use front end - back end communication modules. Documentation

We just launched Atman IoT!

"It ain't what you know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." - Mark Twain

  • Fact: We make a surprising large portion of our decisions based on a hunch
  • Fact: Those decisions affect our families, our communities, our businesses in the most profound way
  • Fact: Some of our decisions are wrong. We call them mistakes and hope to learn from them

We strongly believe that our word would be a better place, if more of our decisions were based on evidence.

We want to contribute towards this vision by building the required tools for collecting and making this evidence available to those who make decisions.

For that reason, we have created and we've just released Atman IoT, a tool for collecting and analyzing digital evidence from your organization, so that you can make more educated decisions about it's direction.
