    The purpose of the diploma thesis is to present the Micro .NET Framework developer environment and the practical use thereof. The creation of applicative portion will be implemented using the Microsoft Visual Studio Express environment while the hardware will be implemented on an FEZ Mini Micro SD card. MS Visual Studio Express is a free tool for developing applications. The Micro Framework which is also free, must first be installed. C# was used to write the programming code. Various manufacturers of hardware equipment which support .NET Micro Framework architecture are presented in the introduction. The author then describes her decision to design a Visual Studio development environment system in continuation. The capabilities of .NET Micro Framework are presented in continuation as well as an in-depth look of the manner of accessing hardware via GPIO and RS232 ports and I2C buses. The thesis will also explain how the devices connect to each other, e.g. through personal PCs and sensors via a wireless network, Bluetooth, ZigBee and Z-WAVE. The next chapter will cover cryptography in the .NET Micro Framework as a requirement for transferring data between individual devices. This following chapter which describes the creation of an application begins with a short presentation of the programming language used to implement the diploma task. This is followed by a short description of the hardware used and subsequently, a description of the solutions implemented. The chapter also describes the drivers required for sensory reflection and electric motors. Ideas for continued development are presented at the end of the thesis.
