Industrial IoT solutions on a large scale call for a dedicated piece of hardware and a specific level of quality. Arduino is often perceived as toys in product development. We show how the Arduino mechanism can be of great use in product development. Sidestep the hobby level of coding and gadget creation by using Arduino ready boards, use good development environments and maintain quality. The latter meaning testing it with a mature test process used for any product development project. Use your unit testing and make sure that the open source libraries that you use are and stay of good enough quality.
With all that in mind, Arduino for industrial IoT solutions is a yes!
About Tom Van de Ven
Tom van de Ven is active in the field of High Tech testing for 15 years. As a High Tech test expert he is a frequently asked sparring partner for Sogeti High Tech customers with regard to starting/professionalizing test projects. Besides a multitude of test assignments (eg. in the field of healthcare, semiconductors, agriculture and automotive) he is an active member of the Sogeti High Tech Test Competence Centre and a speaker for High Tech seminars. Tom uses his experience in a role as a coach for (starting) High Tech test engineers and is constantly looking for improvements in High Tech test methodologies. He is the author of the book that combines Internet of Things and TMap: IoTMap!!!. He also teaches and develops several testing courses in the embedded and high tech domain. If not teaching, testing a tunnel or promoting “Quick Tech Testing” you can find him setting up a high tech test automation framework for the odd customer.
