The IoT Catalogue helps you to choose the propers sensors which are used to solve the problems described among the different domains.
An overview of the tool is given in the following illustration.

The use cases defined are grouped by different domains, according to the category of the problem that is described (eg, Health, Agriculture, Fish farming etc).
The problems described in each domain are solved based on information that are retrieved using specific hardware:
  • Sensor: Is used to collect information from the environment (eg, Temperature, Humidity etc).
  • Interface: Required by some sensors to communicate with the board (eg, Converting conductivity into analog signal).
  • Board: It receives and process data coming from one or more Sensor/Interface.
  • Radio: This module is used in some boards to transmit the data processed, over a wireless network.
  • Display: It displays to the user information from a device, usually a board.
  • Motor: Is a component responsible for moving or controlling a mechanicsm or system.
  • Battery: Is the component that provides energy which is used to power the board.
  • Kit: Its a group of component organized by category (robotics, health, etc).
  • RTC: Its a component used to keep track of the current time.
Some components are going to rely on extra attributes which gives information about the interaction between the components and between the components and the environment.
  • Parameter: Physical input that is read from the environment (eg, Temperature, Humidity etc).
  • Unit: How the data obtained in a measurement is represented (eg, ºF, ºC).
  • Communication: It represent the wireless communication protocols used by the radios.
  • Library: Is used to enable the interaciton between a board and a component.

An example is here presented with an use case from the domain "Fish Farming".
The main purpose of this use case it's collect data from the water, facilitating the process of treating the water resulting in a smaller rate of dying fish.
Among several parameters the water temperature (ºC) will be measured by using the following hardware:

The following picture illustrates this example.
