Eclipse IoT Day Paris Saclay 2019

Revision as of 10:56, 14 May 2019 by (Talk | contribs) (REGISTRATION)

For the first time, the Eclipse IoT community organizes an event in Paris Saclay. For this one day event, we are building a great program that includes topics like Smart cities, Edge computing, Industry 4.0, Robotics, as well as the core Eclipse IoT technologies.

As we have several international speakers, the conference will happen in English.

The program is still under construction, we expect to announce it in late April. Contact us if you have a good topic to present!

Detailed Program

Why open-source matters to IoT by Mike Milinkovich, Eclipse Foundation

IoT projects are very different than traditional software ones. For example, sensors and constrained devices can be embedded in cars, buildings, sidewalks and many other hard to reach places. In most cases, their lifespan is counted in years, if not decades. Replacing them because of security flaws will probably not be an option. What do those devices actually do? Are they secure? What happens if the device is not supported anymore by its maker? It will be much easier to answer those questions if your IoT strategy is built on open source.

In this session, you will learn why open source is central to IoT, and why the Eclipse IoT Working Group is the open source center of gravity for the Internet of Things. You will also discover why specification projects, such as Eclipse Sparkplug, are an important part of the future of open source IoT.

State of the Union of Eclipse IoT by Frédéric Desbiens, Eclipse Foundation

Where are we coming from? Where are we? Where are we going? In this presentation, Frédéric Desbiens, IoT and Edge Computing Program Manager at the Eclipse Foundation, will share with you what happened in the Eclipse IoT Ecosystem in the last year and what is the Foundation's roadmap for the future. Learn about major project releases. Discover new projects such as ioFog, fog05 and Sparkplug. Hear about our new and upcoming working groups. Just don't expect answers to the great philosophical questions of life!

The Edge Breakout -- From Cloud and Edge to Boundary-less Computing by Angelo Corsaro, Chief Technology Officer, ADLINK Technologies Inc.

This presentation will take you on a journey through Cloud-, Edge- and Fog-Computing with the intent of highlighting how these different architectural paradigms address the needs of existing and emerging applications in IoT, Industrial IoT and Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC). In this presentation we argue that instead of trying to define boundaries identified by inevitably fuzzy edges, we should unify compute, storage, communication and I/O end-to-end. Then we'll (1) introduce Eclipse fog∅5, an Open Source fog computing Infrastructure that unifies computing, networking and storage fabrics end-to-end, while addressing the challenges imposed by resource heterogeneity, (2) explain the novel architectural approach adopted by fog∅5 to have a server-less data-centric architecture that is scalable, secure, and highly resilient to failures, (3) demonstrate the use of fog∅5 in some real-world use cases and (4) conclude and reports on future works.

IoT challenges for Complex Systems by Arnaud Samama, R&T Manager at Thales

Existing solutions for IoT Stacks are heavily fragmented between actors: Cloud Providers, Network operators, Edge, devices providers, etc. Most of the deployed systems are integrating a single actor for each level of the IoT Stack. This result comes from the lack of standards requiring custom integrations.

Using IoT in complex systems will need the federation of multiple actors opening the Pandora’s box: interoperability, cybersecurity, safety chain, resilience. Recent acquisitions such as FreeRTOS(Amazon), ExpressLogic (Microsoft) or JR automation(Hitachi) demonstrate the need for more integrated solutions.

What are the Thales expectations from IoT solution providers ?

Model-based Tool for Composition, Deployment, and Validation of IoT Smart Behaviors by Shuai Li, Research engineer at CEA LIST

BRAIN-IoT provides a model-based framework for a decentralized, composable, and dynamic federation of smart autonomous applications on heterogeneous IoT platforms, overcoming the challenge of cross-platform interoperability. Based on the OSGi architecture, bundled applications are stored within marketplaces in the cloud and, upon request by connected devices, dynamically deployed over edge nodes thanks to AI features. Communication protocols, semantics, and capabilities are abstracted through the W3C Web of Things (WoT) Thing Descriptions.

After a brief introduction to the BRAIN-IoT architecture, this talk will focus on the IDE of BRAIN-IoT. Based on the new IoT Modeling Language, provided by the Eclipse Papyrus modeler, the tool bridges the gap between the heterogeneous IoT platforms. Code and metadata generators help with application packaging and upload to the cloud, supporting OSGi bundling and W3C WoT Thing Descriptions. Monitoring, rapid (de)commissioning, and reconfiguration of devices are achieved with the Eclipse sensiNact solution through a Models@run.time approach.

Eclipse Keyple: the Open Source SDK for access control based on secure contactless technology by Olivier Delcroix

Discover Calypso, the historical protocol for contactless electronic ticketing and its open source implementation Eclipse Keyple. Used all around the world, it provides high-security solutions for online and offline secure transactions. Calypso is deployed as a transport public ticketing solutions in 125 cities around the world (Paris - Navigo, Grenoble (Oura), Montreal, Lisboa...).
