Sensors and actuators | Hardware | Software | Connectivity | Gateways
IoT development in Romania is at home since the current active software engineers and electro-mechanical engineer’s generation grew up consolidating their knowledge about how can things and processes be automated. It is mutually agreed by the social sciences specialists that this generation was put on fast-forward after the Revolution of 1989 when Romania flourish in terms of home internet, personal computer acquisition and technology solutions.
The closest IoT layer to the environment and its interactions is the data acquisition and IoT gateways. Each industry or field of application has its own list of sensors and actuators that will be taken into consideration. The hardware for specific task areas must be controlled through specific software. Embedded operating systems (like Contiki, Mantis, Nano-RK, Tiny OS), IoT middleware and IoT protocols must comply with connectivity constraints. IoT gateways are crucial for IoT deployment. Criterias of storage capacity, power, operating temperatures, communication capabilities and cloud platform integration define the way IoT gateways will be chosen and included in the IoT systems.
