THE NEED FOR
HIGH PROGRAMMING SKILLS
EXPENSIVE & TIME CONSUMING
DEVICES & SENSORS’ INTEGRATION
The PlugSense Framework main goal is to facilitate the development and management of monitoring
applications based on wireless sensors networks (WSN)
The framework receives, processes and analyses data from any wireless device in the market
Seamless integration with any management systems, communication protocols or specific final
Dramatic reduction on the cost of development of wireless sensors applications, eliminating the risk of
different standards, obsolete hardware and specific applications integration
Requirements are simple to implement
Main features of the framework:
Development made in modules ( Service Oriented Architecture –SOA)
Integrated development and debugging tools (parsers, workflows, API’s)
Wizards with automatic data base generation and application deployment
Management functionality in resulting app
