The BioT Developer Guide - Device Integration

This page details the steps that must be performed by software developers of medical devices in order to integrate them into BioT.

Assumptions

Amazon Web Services Software Development Kit (AWS SDK) is mentioned, since it may save development time, but it is not mandatory. Everything can be developed using any MQTTMQTT - MQTT is an OASIS standard messaging protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT). (standard for IoT messaging) library.

Prerequisite: Identify your Internet of Things Gateway (IoT GW) to Communicate with BioT

A device communicates with the cloud in one of the following ways:

  • Direct IoT Device - In this use case, the device is also the IoT gateway and has an internet connection (Wi-Fi/Cellular/etc.)
  • Through the Gateway - The medical device communicates (via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy)/Wi-Fi, etc.) with another device (i.e. a gateway) that has an internet connection. The gateway communicates with the cloud. The gateway could be a mobile app or a dedicated gateway.
