1. Introduction

1.1 Purpose of the requirements document

This SRS (Software Requirements Specification) is a description of the project, containing all users and technologies characteristics.

1.2 Scope of the product

The project consists of building a connection between a hive and a beekeeper, to monitor the hive with some captors. We are twinned with an IESE group which is working on the captors and they'll give us the collected data.

1.3 Definitions, acronyms and abbreviations

LoRa: Long Range radio RF technology, can be use to 20km far.

1.5 Overview of the remainder of the document

In the remainder, we will dive deeper into the project details, its purpose and charateristics.

2. General description

2.1 Product perspective

The aim of the project is basically to transmit data from serial link to a distance monitoring computer. This project can evolve in the future to connect hives from all around the metropolis to a central server. basically offering a way to monitor living insect colonies from afar.

2.2 Product functions

The product will have an overview of informations collected from the hive at anytime, and it'll be flexible in order to add others captors (or others hives). At the moment, the aim is to collect the weight and the inside's temperature of the hive.

2.3 User characteristics

There are two users: -The beekeeper : He will have access to the database and any measurements at any time. -The administrator : He will have control of everything, database, code, website infrastructure. Thos two persons can be the same.

2.4 General constraints

  • Radio occupation : We can only emit 1% of the time (36 second each hour in total)
  • Modularity : We must be able to easily add a new sensor.
  • Transmissions errors : In case of interferences, we need to manage the reemission of data
  • Stability : We can't open the hive in winter, to avoid harming bees.

2.5 Assumptions and dependencies

3.Specific requirements, covering functional, non-functional and interface requirements

  • document external interfaces,
  • describe system functionality and performance
  • specify logical database requirements,
  • design constraints,
  • emergent system properties and quality characteristics.

3.1 Requirement X.Y.Z (in Structured Natural Language)

Function: Access to sensors' measures.

Description: At any time, the beekeeper must be able to know the most recent measurements, and any other prior to that.

Inputs: Measurements.

Source: Sensors -> SX1272 -> SX1276 -> User's computer

Outputs: Website displaying measurements.


Action: Measurements on screen, he also can set a date to display measurements from that day.

Non functional requirements:




4. Product evolution

  • Add more sensors.
  • More commands to control the emitter with the reciever (change measurement frequency,...)
