January, 2016 - January, 2017

I was responsible for the architecture and development of a system that should consistently receive and store personal and in many cases sensitive, data from the approximately 2000 sensors located in the HSB Living Lab. The system should also provide the data in a user-friendly way to the researchers subsequently as well as in real-time.

Since the aim was that this system should be storing sensor data for about ten years, the development was done in a way that enabled future development and invited to further research within big data handling and data analysis.

HSB Living Lab is a research and collaboration project between Chalmers, Johanneberg Science Park, and HSB, together with some associated partners. As well as providing residential accommodation, the building will serve as a laboratory for the researchers − a living laboratory.

My responsibilities:
Storage of big data
Encryption of sensitive personal data
A REST API with purpose of providing big data to researchers in a user-friendly way A real time REST API
Programming – from server configurations to frontend
