Eclipse IoT Testbeds: review strategy and next steps.

Work on a set of industry oriented (vertical solutions) to showcase a technical solution and showcase the Eclipse projects and vendor ecosystem. Eclipse IoT Members working together to set-up the testbed and create a demo that runs 24/7 on the Eclipse servers More details: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1nmdi-cmw_O-7W2qZKRHMN-3gw0WHxE75llcV0nMhS-U/edit?usp=sharing Proposed Testbed scenario around Asset Tracking Management: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1KF7yxv5Dnk6b2a574HPtU5pHR5q7wvsT4skKjGDz1Q4/edit?usp=sharing There are many options for collaboration

  • Dan Gross: Samsung interested in participating - Kura gateway using ARTIK.
  • Laurent Lagosanto: Potential use case for Eclipse Edje.
  • David Bericat: Excited and look forward to working with everyone.

Next Steps: Stay tuned, we will be updating the group at large and scheduling individual meetings.

2. MQTT 5: Update from Ian Craggs / James Sutton on what’s in MQTT 5 and the expected impact on Eclipse Paho / Mosquitto and downstream adopters.

Big set of changes:

  • Use of the publish/subscribe message pattern which provides one-to-many message distribution and decoupling of applications.
  • A messaging transport that is agnostic to the content of the payload.
  • Three qualities of service for message delivery:
    • At most once", where messages are delivered according to the best efforts of the operating environment. Message loss can occur. This level could be used, for example, with ambient sensor data where it does not matter if an individual reading is lost as the next one will be published soon after.
    • At least once", where messages are assured to arrive but duplicates can occur.
    • "Exactly once", where messages are assured to arrive exactly once. This level could be used, for example, with billing systems where duplicate or lost messages could lead to incorrect charges being applied.
  • A small transport overhead and protocol exchanges minimized to reduce network traffic.
  • A mechanism to notify interested parties when an abnormal disconnection occurs.

Notes from the meeting:

  • Any request sent (and reply received) can have embedded metadata. This will be used for e.g letting a publisher know about *what* happened to the packet in addition to just acknowledging it
    • The CONNECT packet can contain information regarding what QoS are supported by the server
    • Supporting QoS 2 on the server is not mandatory anymore
    • Scalability
  • It will affect the Paho client and so a new Paho client will be created.
    • Improve API
    • Feedback from community
    • Work nicely with the new MQTT 5 features
  • The complete move will take a while, MQTT 3 will not go away anytime soon. It will be a parallel process. The previous versions of the client will be maintained. Some users might choose to use MQTT 3 since it’s more lightweight.

IMPORTANT: Get your feedback in as soon as possible, because in a few months it will be finalized, so review the specifications. View working draft 10 dated January 4: https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/documents.php?num_per_wg=10&wg_abbrev=mqtt

3. PMC topics: project documentation, build machines, Docker, …

Agenda

Presentation new project proposal: Eclipse Ditto (Digital Twins)

Presenter: Gerald Glocker, Bosch SI

Bosch will be proposing a new project called “Eclipse Ditto” soon for managing state of Digital Twins. Hopefully the proposal will be made next week. The Ditto Project will be a mediator between IoT Devices and the state of their Digital Twins. Digital Twin is not really a fixed term. Bosch views Digital Twin as is a holistic view of all capabilities and aspects of a device/product asset including its digital representation. Ultimate goal is to use the digital twin as a service. There would be a higher level API to work with individual devices and you wouldn’t have to know what is happening in the background. The plan is to integrate with Eclipse Vorto and Eclipse Kapua.

Read the one-page: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:Ditto_Project.png

  • Questions:

Can changes to the state be made on the device of the twin, or is it only one way? The state of the device could be in both directions. Changes to the state on the device or the digital twin would change the state of the other one. A twin is not necessarily 1:1 device, a twin can represent many things (device + JVM + …)

Update on Testbeds

Presenter Benjamin Cabé

Testbeds aim to showcase the software stack available from our open source projects, as well as the various offers that the WG members provide on top if it (cloud solutions, analytics platforms, hardware, integration services, …).

The first testbed will be a solution for Asset Tracking Management, more specifically tracking the delivery of valuable parcels. The end-to-end solution will comprise embedded sensors that can be attached to the parcels to monitor e.g temperature or vibration, IoT gateways in order to collect the sensor data (for example inside the delivery truck), process it, and report it to a cloud backend where it can be further analyzed, or made available to 3rd party apps. Members currently participating: Red Hat + Eurotech

A wiki page describes the solution https://wiki.eclipse.org/IoT/Testbeds/Asset_Tracking_Management and will be completed as other members jump on the train to extend the code scenario with their respective solutions. The code to replicate and demonstrate the testbed will be shared through https://github.com/eclipselabs/eclipseiot-testbed-assettracking.

Participation to the testbeds is open to any member of the IoT WG, and more details on the overall strategy are available at https://goo.gl/UeDekI.

Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

We’re looking for use-case type speakers to present how their company uses Eclipse IoT projects. Last year at ECE 2016 we had a speaker from the Deutsche Bahn train system explain how Eclipse Paho and MQTT are used in their train systems.

Ideally the speaker would be from the Bay area since this is short notice. Please let us know if you know anyone that could be a good candidate.

Eclipse Leshan Press Release

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

Today, February 15, we issued a press release about Eclipse Leshan and Eclipse Waakama “Eclipse IoT Announces Support for OMA LightweightM2M 1.0 Device Management Standard” Read it here: http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20170215_lwm2m.php

IoT World plans

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

Eclipse IoT will have a booth at IoT World and would like to coordinate with other members. We won’t be doing the pavilion since not enough members wanted to participate, but we will get in touch soon to partner with interested members, such as IOTRACKS, that showed interest in participating.

Agenda

Presentation from the Eclipse Titan team at Ericsson

Presenter: György Réthy

Eclipse Titan is a tool built around the TTCN-3 testing standard, and it is very relevant for IoT as it can be used to test MQTT, CoAP, oneM2M, etc. communication scenarios. It was created by Ericsson 15 years ago and has been used internally ever since. It was open sourced 2 years ago at the Eclipse Foundation.

  • oneM2MTestter version 1.0 has been released
  • No need to learn a new language
  • Pilot with CoAP for modeling Testing

Question: Can you execute it in a headless mode? Yes, command line tools is the controller. There are also Eclipse plugins available for test executive that control the command line component.

More information is available in the slides.

Eclipse Foundation Security policy

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

Security is obviously a key concern for IoT so we would like to make sure everyone is familiar with the Security Policy in place at the Eclipse Foundation, and that all projects implement appropriate to let their users know how to report security issues, and know how to handle them.

There is a security team at the Eclipse Foundation, Jens Reimann and Julien Vermillard are on this team to represent IoT.

One of the problems: On Bugzilla, you can mark a bug as private and only the security team will see it and assign it from appropriate project leaders. For projects that use GitHub issues, there isn’t a way to make an issue private. These projects need a link on their site that instructs users to open any security vulnerability bugs on Buzgilla.

All vulnerabilities will eventually need to be made public and the goal is to resolve any vulnerability within *3 months*. After 3 months, the vulnerability will be madepublic.

Agenda

Hono Update

Presenter: Kai Hudalla

  • 0.5 M6 Milestone of Hono released this week.
  • 3-4 weeks in between each release. It’s about continuously improving the system. Working on the telemetry system right now. Stability and resilience has improved, when services fail - how do they reconnect and start working without manual interference.
  • Hackathon in Berlin at Bosch Connected World. Over 100 devices connected to a Hono instance to provide an API and build their solution on top of that. It was pretty successful. It was great because they users could focus on how to use the data, instead of how to connect.
  • Finish up the remaining work around security and authorization to have a first 0.5 release with the full telemetry implementation ready in the summer.
  • Rest + MQTT Adapter and custom ones to connect to LORA 1, but this one not standardized. Bosch camera (HTTP, but not RESTful).


Review IoT Developer Survey Results

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

  • Why isn’t automotive a top industry?
  • Hard to get customers to buy in to the security
  • It’s not cheap, and no one wants to pay for it
  • If it’s a feature, it’s taken for granted
    • We would have to check Node.js and JavaScript (in future remove Node.js)
  • Discrepancy between Linux and ARM on constrained devices - people seem to have answered they run Linux on constrained devices while the dominant architecture seems to be very constrained ARM Cortex-M architectures.
  • Slide #32 Security Boot to Secured boot

Report: https://ianskerrett.wordpress.com/2017/04/19/iot-developer-trends-2017-edition/ Slides: https://www.slideshare.net/IanSkerrett/iot-developer-survey-2017

Proposal to Re-start IoT WG Steering Committee

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

  • Purpose of the Steering Committee: To provide executive-level strategy, review, and oversight to the Eclipse IoT Working Group.
  • Why do we need a steering committee? Who would be on the steering committee.
  • Highly debated during the call, you can follow the discussion on the IoT-WG mailing list.

Details: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jBYPe1bojxvX3aka2fKk1FAGfmghIV284NK4ttiWucw/edit?usp=sharing

Update of Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds

Presenter: Benjamin Cabé

  • Testbeds are doing great and will be announced in two weeks prior to the Red Hat Summit in Boston, May 2-4.
  • We will be hosting more testbeds in the future and every working group member is invited to participate or propose one.

Security policies for IoT projects - Jens Reimann

We have been doing some work on the security policies.

Changes:

  • New projects should know that there are security policies at the Eclipse Foundation
  • Encourage projects to put a link directing users to detailed information to report security issues against Eclipse IoT projects.
  • New mandatory field = reporting security issues for Eclipse IoT projects in the release review. If there are none, just say none, but if there are just list them. If you can’t list them right away, you can just put the bugzilla link that is not publicly viewable to users.
  • We will write this new information down so new and existing projects know how to do it and will send an email to inform projects how to proceed

Update on a new IoT WG charter and Steering Committee - Ian Skerrett

  • With each Working Group at the Eclipse Foundation, there is a steering committee that helps make decisions. We used to have one when the working group was called M2M, but it didn’t work out for many reasons. We would like to relaunch it to make sure that the things we are producing are in agreement with what the overall community wants.
  • We need to define roles and responsibilities in the charter.
  • If the community doesn’t agree on something eventually the Steering Committee can help.

Plans for IoT World - Roxanne Joncas

  • Booth at the event, demoing the testbeds and Eclipse IoT Projects
  • If you’d like to demo, just let us know!

IoT Day in London and Munich - Ian Skerrett

  • Eclipse IoT Day @ThingMonk will take place September 11 in London, UK http://thingmonk.com/
  • Should we do an IoT Day in Munich the week of Sept 11? General consensus is not to have an Eclipse IoT Munich is too close to ECE in September, maybe in February or have a presence in Spain.

Agenda

Update on IoT initiatives at OSGi Alliance - a brief update on the work the OSGi Alliance is doing around IoT

Presenter: Kai Hackbarth, Bosch

OSGI IoT expert group started in 2015, before that there was a resident expert group focusing more on smart home, but we wanted to make it broader and include more IoT domains.

  • MQTT service adapter - receive MQTT messages and push them into OSGi EventAdmin. There is a connection to Eclipse Paho.
  • CoAP - import CoAP services and export OSGi services (making them available via CoAP).
  • Liaison with OneM2M- Smart device template, HGI work started and closed last year, but OneM2M took over this work and is continuing it (Deutsche Telekom). Working on an IRP to see how we can use this with OSGi devices that already exist.
  • OneM2M interworking - How to integrate an OSGi environment into a OneM2M ecosystem. Meeting coming up in June and a joint workshop with OneM2M to work out the requirements.
  • White paper on security including a testing platform, test several vulnerabilities from an OSGi environment and tells you which rules or best practices to apply.
  • Other topics we are trying to push forward: real time Java, for example and specification around OPC-UA.
  • Everything is publicly available on GitHub: OSGi design

Planning for upcoming IoT Day in London, UK and Ludwigsburg, Germany

Presenter: Roxanne Joncas, Eclipse Foundation

We are planning two upcoming Eclipse IoT days this fall.

Eclipse IoT Day @ Thingmonk | Sept 11 - London, UK We hosted this event for the first time last year and it was great. It’s co-located with Thingmonk (Sept 12-13), a developer conference for people making IoT platforms.

Eclipse IoT Day @ ECE | Oct 24 - Ludwigsburg, Germany Third year we are hosting the event, last year was a success and we hope to make it even better this year.

  • Monday, Oct 23 - Eclipse IoT WG Meeting

Guest speakers Project Updates / Intros Collaboration Topics / Open Whiteboard

  • Tuesday, Oct 24 - IoT Day

Various expert speakers

  • Wednesday, Oct. 25 - IoT HackDay

Early planning stages All day event Hands-on experience Eclipse IoT technology. Opportunity for everyone to learn more about the ecosystem and to connect with other developers.

  • PC - Volunteers for IoT @ ECE

Thank you to: Istvan Rath, IncQuery Labs & Jens Reimann, Red Hat

CFPs are open Propose a talk for ECE IoT day on the EclipseCon Europe website. Talk ideas for Thingmonk iot@eclipse.org

Sponsorship Looking for sponsors for both events, email me roxanne@eclipse.org

Update of sandbox servers for Eclipse IoT projects

Presenter: Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation

Right now we have 3 active sandbox server services

  • MQTT (Mosquitto)
  • CoAP (Californium)
  • LWM2M (Leshan)

Would be good to have sandboxes for: Kapua (Jens Reimann)

  • Have one already set-up, but it’s running an old version of Kapua. Missing component is user management, so we need to set that up (create account, etc.). This is planned for the upcoming release so we will wait before updating it since the release is close. Timeframe: around 4 weeks from now.
  • We will post this on iot.eclipse.org

Hono (Kai Hudalla)

  • Sandbox for hackathon, can we port it? We want to set it up. Main issue is making sure that people can use it and use their devices themselves and also get data from their devices without interfering too much with each other. It’s closely connected to authorization and connection and that is already implemented, but I would like to wait until we have this implemented in a more elegant way. Timeframe: 4-6 weeks
  • We need access to a VM that already has Docker or Kubernetes support.
  • Benjamin will look at whether webmaster can provide a Container Engine setup vs. vanilla Compute Engine VM.

Unide

  • The Unide team already has a google machine and will setup their sandbox shortly.

Industry 4.0/Smart Manufacturing White Paper – we would like to start drafting a white paper to describe how Eclipse IoT projects can be used for Industry 4.0

Presenter: Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation

  • Last white paper (3 stacks) was very successful, pulled together what our community/ecosystem is about and also helped the industry understand what is need to build IoT solutions.
  • We want to do something similar for Industry 4.0 / Smart Manufacturing, problem, what solutions we need to look at, road map for the future.
  • Volunteers to help with it as subject matter experts
  • Process: get a small group of people, draft outline, draft content, working group will review it and provide input.
  • Any volunteers? The following individuals volunteered during the call: James Kirkland (Red Hat), Dave Woodard (Eurotech), Dan Gross (Samsung)
  • Publish before this before EclipseCon Europe (Oct 24)


Review of Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds Initiative

Presenter: Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation

  • The feedback has been very positive. Helps us talk to the wider industry about what we are doing.
  • Current testbed (Asset Tracking Management) was launched at Red Hat Summit. Well received and was demoed onsite. Red Hat, Codenvy, Azul Systems, Samsung, Eurotech. Many different demos at the show so people could see data coming in from different assets and view different parts of the demo. All the code is hosted on GitHub and is open source. Users can look at the code and see how it’s running in the gateway and the cloud (leveraging Kapua), check how it’s connected to sensors, etc.)
  • Next steps: Improving the documentation for the current Asset Tracking Management Testbed. We would welcome your help to help us review and contribute to the documentation.
  • We will be working on other testbeds, the next scenario is around industrial automation / smart manufacturing and leverage other technologies that weren’t necessarily covered in the first testbed. Feat maybe PPMP, OPC-UA, Hono. Work on nice dashboards to see everything like data display and analysis in a nice way. Unide is working on visualization so that could be leveraged with Kapua.
  • Benjamin is writing an outline/strawman to visualize how it will look like but please share your ideas and we will collaborate to make all the pieces fit together over the next months.

Review of Eclipse IoT participation in IoT World last week

Presenter: Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation

  • It was a great event (about 14,000) in Santa Clara, California on May 16-18
  • By far the largest IoT Show in North America and so it means a lot of exposure
  • The knowledge of what we are doing continues to rise. People already understand that we do IoT and have been using Kura, MQTT (Paho/Mosquitto) so they are already part of the user community. One person loved hawkBit and said they launched their product with it!
  • The show included a lot of vendors (hardware, gateways) there was a lot more talk of edge computing.
  • Analytics will becoming equally important so we are trying to encourage vendors to join the WG.
  • With Red Hat we had a passport game (Azul, Eurotech and Red Hat) it was effective to get people to all the booths and showed nice collaboration between members
  • Testbed approach, people wanted to buy it. UPS and FedEx came up and said it was interesting and got the point that we have technology that they could be using.
  • IOTRACKS demoed with us and they were also very busy! They focused on Eclipse ioFog and got great exposure. Keep it in mind for next year, we have a spot for you.
