Connode is dedicated to the idea that the IoT should be modeled after the success of the Internet, using open standards and IP to reach all devices. This presentation will give an insight into how large scale RF mesh networks using 6LoWPAN works in some of the largest IoT projects in the world.
Presentation: An Arduino, an Application, Server, and me - Adventures In and Out Of the Cloud
Presenting the world's first cuddly, throwable application server! Computers are getting smaller and smaller and cheaper and cheaper. It's possible to sock computers away almost anywhere, and to connect almost anything to the internet. This talk will explore the limits of embeddable hardware and present a getting-started-guide to the internet of things. What's needed? How much does it cost? What's the best way of making an embeddable device talk to the internet? And why would you want a throwable application server?
As well as hints and tips, there will be a show-and-tell session (or "demo" if you're discussing with your boss).
In this session I will walk you through how to build your own retro handheld console that is powered by Java, runs on a Raspberry Pi, and is printed on a 3D printer. Some of the topics that we will cover along the journey include: hacking Java on the Raspberry Pi, rigging input devices with Pi4J, insane performance tuning on the JVM, and why your boss [or SO] needs to buy you a 3D printer!
And of course your retro gaming mettle will be put to the test, so make sure to dust off your old 8 and 16 bit consoles to prepare.
This presentation is about the most fun you can have while still legitimately calling this conference ?work.? In fact, I will hopefully inspire you to do your own creative ?work? leveraging Java and Raspberry Pi to hack the real world.
Here is the IoT market, and it's on fire. Here is the App Store and it's hot. Appstore is about software delivery to the customer, and IoT devices need software (and firmware).
So, do we need an App Store for the IoT? There are things that exist in Appstore that IoT doesn't need, and there are requirements of the IoT that App Store doesn't have.
So, will it blend?
Presentation: Emul8 - path to continuous integration for IoT systems
The IoT systems of today are not thoroughly tested due to the impracticality of setting up large, distributed device networks physically. Instead, typically work focuses on single nodes or small networks, and testing (if any) is done on a one-off basis, with little repeatability and not including the aspect of scalability.
If we are to practically arrive at many billions of nodes constituting the Internet of Things ecosystem, tools are needed to allow continuous, repeatable, scalable testing methods for embedded IoT nodes on a PC.
The Emul8 open source emulation framework lets you run unmodified binaries of nodes such like ARM Cortex-M on your PC, opening the way to doing continuous integration on a scale previously unknown to embedded systems software development.
Presentation: Experiences from integrating 100 things
Internet of Things is changing many aspects of how companies do business and engage with customers. This includes being able to introduce new types of products and services as well as increasing efficiency. But developing professional IoT solutions and integrating all the things often prove to be difficult. There are many obstacles and factors that you need to consider. Connecting a thing means you need to master the skills of hardware, software and networking as well as business processes and user interaction.
In this session Hans will share his experiences from integrating and operating more than 100 different types of device/things/machines such as vending machines, electrical vehicle charging, bus stop displays, sensors, smart homes, RFID/NFC, GPS-tracking and more.
Presentation: Healthcare for the elderly using the IoT
The Healthcare situation in cities might be good but for the elderly population on the country side it is often problematic.
In this session it will be shown how one can use a mobile phone and a smart watch in combination with a Java based gateway, iBeacons and other sensors to monitor the activity of elderly people. With the help of an IoT Cloud Service this data can be analyzed to detect situations that might be critical (illness, bone fracture etc.). If such a case was detected the Cloud Service can trigger Enterprise applications. With this approach it might be possible to connect such a system to existing Healthcare Applications. This session will give you an idea on how you can combine existing technologies to do something useful and help elderly people in case of an emergency.
Hands-on Lab: Industrial Prototyping with TinkerForge
TinkerForge is a very simple, easy-to-handle modular electronic system. Depending on the application, a system of sensor, wireless and motor control elements can be built in a modular way and programmed with a few lines of code. No soldering iron is needed. Both the hardware and the software are open source.
After a brief overview of the available sensors and actuators, we will quickly start with the actual programming. Together, we will explore different applications, architectures, and the combination of TinkerForge with Java. Using sensors, actuators and some other elements, we will take the first steps and delve into the practical world of IoT with Java 8 and TinkerForge.
Quickie: Introducing Pepper, the new robot by Aldebaran
Internet of Things is a big buzz word in the tech communities nowadays, but how different it is to an Internet of predominantly Screens that has been forming since 80/90s? Should we make a clear distinction between Internet of Screens and Internet of Things? What are the commonalities and what are the differences? What does IoT mean to the skillset in the web app developer communities? What is the importance of standardization in IoT?
This workshop will be using our own board called IoT Surfboard that agregates:
- Temperature, humidity, light, alcohol and infra-red sensor
- Relay, transistors
- WIFI / Bluetooth or Zigbee connector (we will be using WIFI)
- LED RGB
- Real-time clock
We will wok with the following labs:
1. Creating home-automaton system controlling lights
2. Reading traffic information and changing LED color based on that
3. Create a breathliser integrated with Twitter
4. Read all the sensors and publish on MQTT
5. Using IBM Bluemix to make ANY IoT implementation
We will provide the boards and the attend need to bring your own laptop. In the end we will let the attendes to play with IoT Surfboard and the boards will be available for selling!
Presentation: Moving Renewable Energy Embedded Systems Into the Cloud
Learn how to build scalable, self-sustaining Embedded Ecosystems powered by small-scale Renewable Energy (solar, wind) systems and connect those systems to cloud services.
This session introduces you to IoT & Cloud concepts and demonstrates how one necessitates the other. The driver of the "Internet of Things" is not the Things, but the INTERNET; a cloud connection is key to unlocking full value from your system.
Presentation: Providing eyes, ears and mouth to your IoT Project using MQTT, Android and Intel Real Sense
This session discusses how you can integrate different technology to provide amazing user experiences with gestures, text-to-speech voice recognition and sensors (like alcohol) to provide environment and physical information to your IoT project.
We will be presenting different hardware technologies including Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Gemalto EHS6 with JavaME, Intel Edision as IoT gateway, Intel Real Sense to gesture recognition everything using MQTT + REST and MANY amazing live demos. In the end you will have a nice resume around Internet of Things possibilibites and many nice technologies!
We wanted to find out if we could use the same languages and tools on IoT hardware. We used Lego trains and Raspberry Pi?s as a sample project.
The Lego trains are equipped with a Raspberry Pi, camera, wireless dongle, infrared transmitter, speaker, RFID reader and battery pack. Next to that we have automated switch tracks and camera's again with the help of Raspberry Pi's. We also build some lightning effects with LEDs controlled by Particle Photon?s. On top of that we also automated a Lego ferris wheel. To control the trains and other parts we built a Java application based on Jersey and Tomcat together with an AngularJS application.
