NeoCortec demonstrated full sensor to cloud solution at Embedded World 2024

Simple and quick to set up plus easy data processing in the cloud

Copenhagen – June 27, 2024 – At Embedded World 2024 in Nuremberg, Germany in April 2024, NeoCortec, the experts on wireless connectivity and providers of ultra-low-power bi-directional wireless mesh network hardware and software solutions, demonstrated how easy it is to create a full sensor to cloud solution using NeoMesh Click boards from MikroE and the IoTConnect cloud solution from Avnet Abacus. On its stand and in two of the exhibition halls (Hall 3 and Hall 3A), NeoCortec set up a NeoMesh wireless sensor network containing of 35 nodes all mounted in different locations. It only took a few hours to set everything up and establish the fully battery-powered network by simply switching on the nodes in an arbitrary sequence.

NeoCortec collected Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) data from the two exhibition halls, measuring temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. Additionally, the number of Bluetooth devices near each node was counted to estimate the number of people present throughout the day. For the nodes, NeoCortec used NeoMesh Clickboards from MikroElektronika, combining three Clickboards on a development board with a battery for each node. A BeaglePlay board from Beagleboard, equipped with a NeoMesh Clickboard, served as the gateway. The data was uploaded to Avnet’s IoT Connect cloud platform. Dashboards were developed to visualize the IAQ data and Bluetooth beacon heatmap, allowing visitors to NeoCortec’s stand to view them using the NeoMesh monitoring tool.

About NeoCortec

NeoCortec was founded in 2007 with the aim of developing and patenting several innovations related to Wireless Sensor Networks. The main product is NeoMesh. NeoMesh is a wireless communication protocol to be embedded in smart devices to enable communication between the devices as well as to the cloud. NeoMesh is built completely from the scratch to overcome some of the limitations that e.g. Zigbee, Zwave, Bluetooth and Thread have: Scalability in number of devices, range and power consumption. At NeoCortec, we aim towards making non-smart and large buildings smarter by using NeoMesh. Easy upgrade without cabling. NeoMesh is available on ultra-low-power bi-directional wireless mesh network communication modules as well as on a license basis on many various chipsets.
