MicroEJ® and Witekio collaborate on demonstrator for SIGFOX connectivity
The collaboration illustrates how Witekio can enable manufacturers to successfully integrate MicroEJ technology into their embedded or IoT project
MicroEJ® and Witekio today announced their collaboration on a demonstrator leveraging a connection to a SIGFOX low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) of a geolocation application running on MicroEJ OS and an ARM Cortex-M evaluation board from STMicroelectronics.
This project is an example of a first successful collaboration and an illustration of the global partnership between the two companies. The partnership aims at offering Witekio’s system software integration services to customers choosing MicroEJ solutions for developing their next generation of cloud connected IoT solutions.
The solution is a geolocation system that illustrates how the SIGFOX LPWAN can be used to collect and store location data of connected objects. The demonstrator includes an embedded device prototyped on STMicroelectronics STM32F7 evaluation kit running MicroEJ OS and connected to the SIGFOX network through a SigBee radio module. Dedicated embedded applications were developed for MicroEJ OS: a system configuration app, a graphical user interface for live positioning, a system interaction app for triggering position recording through a GPS module, and a data push app for pushing location data over the SIGFOX network. Published location data is stored on SIGFOX network backend infrastructure. Data can be collected and observed on a user-friendly map from a mobile application running on Apple iOS or Google Android tablets and smartphones and connected to the SIGFOX backend.
“This project demonstrates how MicroEJ solutions can be used to create connected and interactive applications for cost-effective embedded and IoT devices in record time thanks to MicroEJ OS and associated development tools,” said Fred Rivard, CEO of MicroEJ. “MicroEJ and Witekio offer complementary technologies and skillsets to support the development and deployment of innovative embedded and IoT customer projects.”
“Witekio is a system software integrator capable of helping customers develop and integrate all their software layers from hardware to the cloud,” said Yannick Chammings, CEO of Witekio. “We enjoy successful collaboration on joint customer projects with MicroEJ on ARM-based microcontrollers and microprocessors. Our companies have complementary expertise and offer complete solution with tools, technologies and integration services.”
Witekio’s adventure started 15 years ago under the name Adeneo Embedded, as a precursor of complex and connected embedded systems. Witekio is an embedded software expert with a system level approach, engineering and integrating intelligent systems software for any device from the hardware to the cloud.
