At last, a real IoT tech meetup in Berlin! Here we talk about IoT technologies, case studies of real world deployments, new software, new hardware, new architectures: the whole gamut of IoT technology. If you want to learn more about IoT technologies and discuss them, then this is the place to be.
7pm – Welcome by relayr team
7:10pm – 7:40pm – “Constrained Devices: The Things in IoT” // James Munns – Embedded Systems Engineer – relayr.io
Defining the term “constrained device” is a necessary prerequisite to a discussion about IoT. This talk will address what a constrained device is, with examples ranging from very constrained embedded devices (ARM Cortex-M, Arduinos, etc.) to lightweight Linux and Linux-style devices (such as OpenWRT devices), single board ARM (such as the Raspberry Pi) or x86 based Linux devices. We will focus on how these devices interact with the world, what it’s like to develop with them, and what limitations they have compared to smartphone, laptop, or desktop-style platforms. These topics will be covered at a higher level – don’t worry if you have never developed for these platforms – but the talk will still be technical in nature.
7:40pm – 7:50pm – Q&A
7:50pm – 8:20pm – “Developing a modern industrial sensor kit”// Antonio Almeida – Senior Developer Evangelist – relayr.io
How does one develop a modern, industrial-strength sensor kit? We share our approach at relayr by showcasing the initial prototype of our IDK (Industrial Development Kit), which has already been deployed in multiple industrial facilities. As an appetizer, here are the technologies we used: Contiki OS as an operating system, running on CC2538 Cortex M3 MCU; 6LowPAN as a communication protocol; CoAP as an application protocol for sensor data transfer, device configuration and firmware updating. This kit supports analog and digital industrial-grade IP67-rated sensors and can be configured in a sensor-type-agnostic manner, i.e., configured with plug-and-play capabilities. After elaborating on the rationale for our technology choices, we will demonstrate the use of an industrial-grade vibration sensor, and we will detail the configuration relying on the CoAP observer method to stream data. Last but not least, we will perform an Over-The-Air (OTA) firmware update that adds support for a new CoAP resource.
8:20pm – 8:30pm – Q&A
