In this project we first created a SW architecture for a greenhouse and then analysed its performance, finding out its bottlenecks (the servers). Here I really enjoyed to work in a totally international group of three people (Italy, Belgium and Israel) to understand how to make the system better in its performance, resolving the bottleneck. I also found fashinating that in this project I could use some knowledge about embedded systems (I could map components into some physical devices and estimate the performance of the system based on their technical capabilities). Figure 1 shows the SW architecture of the system and Figure 2 the model used to find its bottleneck.
