Nordic Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company. The company specializes in ultra-low power performance wireless System-on-Chip (SoC) and connectivity devices for the 2.4 GHz ISM band, with power consumption being one of the main focus areas.
Nordic Semiconductor collaborated with NTNU, the Norwegian Science and Technology University in Trondheim, to integrate the Nordic Thingy:52 on the data marketplace: “As students, we highly appreciate these kinds of projects as it forces us to experiment with different solutions and learn from mistakes. We would like to thank Nordic Semiconductor, Bouvet Norway and the IOTA Foundation providing a great learning platform and collaboration.” — NTNU Students
The project itself is introduced and explained in the following video: (the vieo is divided into pics/Nala)
This is the business case for the project:
The user is a company that wants to collect air quality sensor data from different areas to sell it. The company wants to collect data (temperature, CO2, humidity, air pressure, and VOC) from locations such as meeting rooms, bus stops, classrooms, and cafes. The company wants to make money selling the data they collect on an open marketplace. Their customers are:
the owners of the locales and their competitors,
the users of these locales,
start-ups who innovate with the data,
the local authorities,
other actors which might be interested in air quality.
To do this, the company needs sensors to record air quality data. They also need a way to collect, and sell it, while maintaining data integrity. It is important for the company that the system is light, mobile, and easy to use. The company needs to be able to record, collect, and sell data. For this to be cost efficient, setup must be fast and cheap, so changes can be made on the fly to meet customer needs.
