Lemonbeat aims to simplify IoT embedded software development

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

Lemonbeat in Germany is launching its latest software for the rapid development of intelligent end devices for the Internet of Things (IoT).

At the heart of Lemonbeat’s Studio 2.0 IoT technology is its embedded operating system designed specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT). Integrated into the end device, the system enables users to develop individual applications by combining standardised software modules. This modular approach allows all devices, even sensors which are constrained in power or size, to act as intelligent parts of the network with the devices communicating and interacting directly by means of the use case independent Lemonbeat smart Device Language (LsDL). 

This makes gateways as well as clouds obsolete for controlling the network, says Lemonbeat, integrating edge performance with cloud analytics and device management power.

With Lemonbeat Studio 2.0, software developers and system integrators can configure Lemonbeat OS-compatible sensors and actuators without needing to write a single line of code. Using a simple point and click system, users can easily create and test intelligent behaviours and device interactions within an IoT environment.

In an IoT solution, the behaviour of the device can be modified during live operation. Lemonbeat Studio 2.0 also permits over-the-air (OTA) updates of its firmware.
A new feature in Lemonbeat Studio 2.0 is the “Lemonbeat TestSuite” plug-in. With this plug-in, users can test device configurations systematically and automatically using flexible scenarios. The test scenarios can be run in the Lemonbeat Studio interface or as a console application. The user can also integrate the configurations into existing test environments, such as Jenkins. The results can be output in XML format and exported to other systems.

The company was founded in October 2015 as a wholly owned subsidiary of innogy SE – one of Europe’s largest utility companies with many years of experience in smart home applications.
