Status update:

  • Comeaux, Justin M (CGI Federal) and Krulick, Daniel (CGI Federal) are meeting to talk about how to read data from new sensors
    • Finished code for Temp, Pressure, and Humidity (BME 280, Adafruit), and Temp. and Humidity (DHT11) sensors
    • DF Robot PM2.5 sensor driver available through Intel UPM.
    • Begin coding high-end sensors. (06/07/2017)
    • Meeting 6/7/2017 to work on further sensors
  • Documentation of sensor deployment
    • Will document disabling of Wifi and Bluetooth (06/07/2017) Miles, Brian (CGI Federal), I will make you a notifier for you to review it.

  • Use cases:
    • Added details to use cases
    • Began wire framing/prototypes of dashboards to support specific use cases.
    • Will e-mail LCG re. data access tomorrow/Wed.
  • Visualization
    • Demo
  • LEaRN website
    • We need to develop, by July 1st, a LEaRN website, hosted on Azure, that serves as a landing page to the project
      • Need to register a domain name
      • Set up a web server is Azure
      • Add content from proposal as a project description section.
      • Links to:
        • Dashboard
        • Source code
        • Agile IQ
        • etc.
    • Matkin, Benjamin K (CGI Federal) will work on this for the next sprint
  ArchitectureChepudira, Karthik (CGI Federal) 
  • Setup a virtual sensor in the API - Manually (Postman)
  • Created Azure Iot Hub and setup devices
    • Created script for automation of device creation from the API
  • Created a sample Azure function(c#) for processing Iot events
    • The function talks to API and creates observations
  • Created a MQTT broker (Azure VM) using mosquitto and bridged to Azure Iot Hub
  • Created POC for end-to-end of a simulated sensor (Virtual sensor located at CGI building)
    • It mirrors the the real sensor at Eraste Landry (Adds a bias (+5%) to the result)
    • Can communicate to Azure IoT hub directly from device
    • Can communicate to the MQTT broker bridged to Azure Iot hub
