DMC developed the firmware for an environmental monitoring device along with an Azure cloud-based solution to enable data collection and reporting capabilities.
C2Sense offers innovative environmental monitoring systems for storage facilities. C2Sense had a prototype device with a printed circuit board and firmware programmed in Python, and approached DMC for assistance with scaling this proof of concept to market by developing the device’s firmware and server side of the application.
The solution has a series of sensor nodes connected to an Azure IoT Hub that collect environmental data. The sensor nodes are controlled by firmware programmed in Python, which runs on a Raspberry Pi using Embedded Linux. The collected raw data is processed using proprietary algorithms on Docker containers hosted in a cluster. After the data is processed, it is stored in Azure Table Storage so that it can be stored in a cost-effective manner and still be retrieved quickly. The server can also push firmware updates to the nodes manually or automatically.
