"This graduation thesis is my final piece of work for my training at HoWest. In it, I discuss my project that I developed at RTS. The idea for my graduation project came from the internship company itself. RTS installed these types of devices on a mobile device, but it often happened that the signal was too far or out of range, or that there was interference. The goal of this assignment was to optimise the working system even further. This by connecting a Raspberry Pi to the mobile devices."
Jason explains: "Together with the team at RTS, I first discussed all the possibilities. We concluded that the devices work via the Telnet protocol, among other things. So I wrote a Python program that could run automatically and thus keep the radio link online. The program sent a command to the Broadband Network at certain times to retrieve the signal (dBm value) and check if the signal was still intact. This is useful because it allows you to monitor the dBm value and see how strong the signal still is. A second more elaborate final solution was to place a USB in the Raspberry Pi that can send serial data from the location of the station to the mobile device. In this way, an automatic command is sent when the mobile device changes its zone. A number of experts in the field designed a PCB that sends serial data, shared their information and plan of approach. All these developments and ideas lead to one whole, namely the optimisation of the product. While making my thesis, I honed my Python skills, learned about the software, and became better at working independently and using online research.
