Ljudströmning över 802.11n i en IoT-kontext : En implementation samt en litteraturstudie kring trådlösa IoT-standarder (Swedish)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept that revolves around ordinary devices that are connected to the internet for extended control and ease of use. Altran, a company dealing in high technology and innovation consultancy, predicts a large growth in business opportunities in the IoT area in the coming years, and therefore wants to invest in knowledge about the Internet of Things. Altran wanted a report that described popular wireless IoT communication technologies along with a proposal for a general IoT communication platform or base that could be used to implement many of these technologies. Additionally, an audio streaming application were to be implemented on the proposed platform to validate its credibility. The project resulted in a report on 6 different wireless IoT technologies: Z-wave, ZigBee, Thread, Bluetooth, 802.11n, and 802.11ah. A hardware and software base was proposed that could implement 4 of 6 of these technologies. This base was the Raspberry Pi 2 along with the Raspbian Jessie operating system. Finally an audio streaming system that could stream data to a set of smart Speaker nodes over wireless links based on IEEE 802.11n was implemented on the proposed base.
