Thank you all for your active participation, and we wish you all the best.

Hello all,

A quick reminder to the students taking the ED110046: (6 ECTS) module, the paper review submission deadline is the 1st of September, 2022.

Please upload your paper review in either PDF or DOC format to this link Upload Link. The file name should be in the following format: lastname_firstname.

Paper Review

Hello all,

To the students taking the ED110046: "Internet of Things for the Built Environment" for Environmental Engineering (6 ECTS) module, we have selected research papers for you to review. Each student will receive the allocated research paper in their Slack inbox.
Please find the paper review guidelines under the following link Paper review guidelines.

Hey all,

I put together a page on how to handle library issues on Arduino: Troubleshooting Arduino IDE

Hey all, earlier today I released some important changes to our IoT infrastructure. You can now map location information of your devices using the Cayenne payload GPS field. Checkout the updated FROST - Tutorial to learn about the latest changes to the mapping document. Moreover, there are some new error messages that make it easier to find what's wrong with the mappings. They are described in Testing LoRaWAN connections.

Hello all,

FROST Server tutorial

Hey there,
here is the tutorial on how to get your data to the FROST-Server I promised yesterday. Take a look and contact us if you need help.
FROST - Tutorial
I am out of office until next Tuesday and will not be able to reply to you until then.

Services online

Hey all,
I just setup the services for the course. You can find them here:

LoraWAN Package Listing

Incoming TTN and SWM packages are now listed here:


The FROST-Server is the IoT-Platform where all your sensor data from your nodes will be stored. We will show you next week how to brin gyour data there. For now, checkout the FROST Server page to query some data from out testing nodes.


Grafana is the tool we are going to use for data visualization. Teh login below provides you with edit rights. Just try to create a dashboard of your own. No worries, there is nothing you can destroy here, just give it a try. You can learn more about that here:
The time-series values stored in the FROST Server can be visualized by an Open Source Dashboard application Grafana. Grafana has a plug-in called LinkSmart-SensorThings-Datasource, which allows to query and visualize the sensor observations from arbitrary SensorThings API services.
