Description/Abstract

A suite of software applications was developed in order to
provide functionality to monitor and record environmental
and experimental data and the associated metadata.
A piece of software developed by IBM [1] called the
Microbroker was used as middleware to handle the flow
of messages containing the monitored data using the MQ
telemetry transport [2] (MQTT) format. Methods to send
control commands were also employed where allowed by
the experimental set up. The software was used to monitor
a range of laboratories within the School of Chemistry at
the University of Southampton. A number of repository
solutions were implemented to build an understanding of
what is required for a scalable and interoperable system.
