Abstract [en]

This thesis has been carried out in cooperation with a company which develops mobile sensor platforms. The sensors measure different types of data such as temperature, pressure etc.. They will communicate through the internet with a server that stores data in a database. This system will be controlled and monitored through a web page. The project's aim has been to develop this system and to implement a server, a database, a website and a client application that simulates sensor signals. In addition, the performance of the server should be measured and a usability test should be performed. To measure the performance of the server, different variants of the client program, which continuously sent data from an increasing number of clients to the server, were developed. In the usability test the participants had to solve a number of tasks after which they answered a survey and were interviewed.The result is a communication system that works according to the requirements and a client program that is also used for testing the server. The investigation of the server performance showed a maximum bandwidth of about 370 kb/s while serving up to 70 clients. The database consumed 95% of the bandwith. However, with a rising number of clients there was a continous decline in the performance. In usability tests, there was a big difference in how people perceive computer programs depending on their experience and education. For this application, the server worked well, but if the project is to be developed into a large scale, it then becomes relevant to move onto an asynchronous working server instead of a thread-server. Queries to a database (MySQL) considerably decreases bandwidth and should be optimized where possible.
