==Goal, Plans, Objectives for 2013==
 
The following is a running summary of an open discussion looking back on the first year and toward goals, plans, and objectives for the Working Group in 2013
 
*Focus on tangible results and deliverables from the Working Group
 
*Pickup the previous work on architecture and key interface design
 
*Find ways to affect related Eclipse projects from technical, community and market perspective
 
*Put a priority back on an MQTT server project supporting M2M messaging
 
*The projects prove various pies needed  but their needs to be a focus on a ready to infrastructure for developers. Something where Eclipse can provide a "start from scratch" approach for developers building M2M applications.
 
*Expanded runtime platform support
 
*Continue looking in to collaboration with Continua, not just as an industry,  but also as a template for finding ways the Eclipse projects can enable M2M industry solutions. Are there other industries we could discuss collaboration with?
 
*Market need/opportunity in expanding Mihini and Koneki tooling to Java
 
*To increase adoption and reducing bar to entry, there is a need ot "wrap" the MQTT clients to handle the basic housekeeping and configuration
 
**Expose REST APIs
 
**Commit MqGnatt as example and template
 
**Identify other means to abstract complexity
 
*Work with QEST developer to incorporate into IWG and/or projects. This could lead to "bridging" of various M2M networks. Identify and translate this to to concrete actions and next steps.
 
*Relationship with Continua, OASIS, OneM2M
 
*Consider expanding scope
 
**Security needs to be addressed overall and in context of related Eclipse projects
 
**Device level protocol from both standards and open source project perspective
 
  
==EclipseCon 2013==
 
*Call for paper deadline is November 19th
 
*A hands-on workshop perhaps expanding on successful MicroDoc tutorial would be valuable to the community

The call was spent discussing the QEST proposal presented on  October 9th. The QEST work appears to share common ground some important areas the IWG will be looking at: REST APIs, Security and Payload, which together seem to warrant a parallel discussion thread. These have the potential of affecting M2M related projects in Eclipse and has overlap with the Continua work presented previously to the IWG.

== Agenda ==
 +
=== 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

**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.
*Arlen Nipper, Paho
+
**At least once", where messages are assured to arrive but duplicates can occur.
*Andy Piper, VMware
+
**"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.

== Eclipse Project Updates ==
+
Scott and Benjamin gave brief updates on Paho, Koneki and Mihini. Paho project plan has been submitted based on 4Q12 build,a 1Q13 release and an 0.9 release in 2Q13 for Kepler. Benjamin gave a brief report on his attendance at the [http://summit.oshwa.org/ Open Hardware Summit] which led to a discussion summarized below.
+
 
+
== Open Hardware Summit ==
+
Benjamin noted form his attendance at Open Hardware Summit that the may be some common interests between M2M IWG and the Open Source Hardware Association that sponsors the conference. There was discussion of this on the call resulting in suggestion s for future followup:
+
*Promote the Eclipse M2M IWG at the next conference.
+
*There may be value to both the open source hardware community and the open source software M2M community in readily available software platforms. A version of Mihini for contained devices like the Raspberry Pi and an Arduino that would leverage M2M gateways and servers, was given as an example.  
+
*Start with demonstrations using recommended configurations of Eclipse project code for M2M for open soruce hardware. Include a constrained framework in Eclipse.
+
*Contact some of the Open Source Hardware Association companies supporting and using open source hardware for a discussion around open hardware and software collaboration via Eclipse.
+
*This is an annual conference. Add this discussion to future call agendas to gauge further interest.
+
== Related standards ==
+
Ian was not on the call but Scott reported that Ian was in contact with OneM2M and looking into ways that the M2M IWG could participate. Final approval of the MQTT specification is proceeding at Continua. Scott will have more to report in future calls about moving the MQTT specification to OASIS.
+
 
+
== Other Business ==
+
*Scott observed that the M2M interface work based on the Scenarios, has a high degree of overlap with a new work effort forming at Continua to define a services layer using MQTT. He is recommending we the M2M IWG collaborate there and will report in with more details alter. It was recommended that we pull the proposal James made, out of the minutes and onto a separate section in the Wiki.
+
*General agreement that compiling an agenda for this call in advance on the wiki is best.

== Eclipse Project Updates ==
+
Scott and Benjamin gave brief updates on Paho, Koneki and Mihini.
+
+
There have  been no updates since the last meeting on options for MQTT broker support in Paho. The consensus then was that moving Mosquitto over to Eclipse and  Paho subproject would be the best path. Scott agreed to follow up with Roger Light and Arlen Nipper to see where the the decision process is.  
+
 
+
Andy Piper will send a list  of  related  HTTP - MQTT bridges out to the mailing list.
+
== Webinars ==
+
The webinars remain on track on track for September.  Webinar information can be [http://eclipse.org/community/m2m-webinars/ found here].
+
Ian again requests that request that all members who can, promote these within their company.
+
 
+
==  M2M Portal  and M2M Eclipse Package ==
+
The [http://m2m.eclipse.org/Eclipse M2M portal] is now live. The design, content and purposing of the portal received very positive feedback and compliments.
+
 
   
 
   
Benjamin is looking for input from Paho project on the Eclipse M2M Package Proposal. Paho is now building a plan to be part of the Kepler release and has milestones that will allow for integration with the EPP. Scott will encourage input on this from the Paho community.  
+
'''Notes from the meeting:'''
== Event Coverage:  LeWeb conference, EclipseCon Europe ==
+
*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
We discussed the [http://paris.leweb.co/ 2012 LeWeb conference] in Paris  Dec 4-6. The theme of the conference is Internet of Things. Ian asked all members to let him know their interest in an Eclipse M2M Booth. Ian also reminded us about [http://www.eclipsecon.org/europe2012/ EclipseCon Europe].
+
**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.
  
== Standards discussion ==
+
'''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
Scott gave an update on the ongoing work with Continua Alliance to incorporate MQTT into their specifications, and there he is now seeing strong interest and support in moving the MQTT protocol specification over to OASIS.  
+
  
Following up on a previous conversation here, Mats proposed we explore a relationship with OneM2M. There was consensus on this so Ian will look into the options available.

== Agenda ==
 +
===Presentation new project proposal: Eclipse Ditto (Digital Twins) ===
 +
'''Presenter: Gerald Glocker, Bosch SI'''
  
There was a discussion on the proposal James sent around (included below). Everyone was in agreement on this design point for the interfaces into MQTT for for programming models like SOAP or REST that run over HTTP.  
+
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
  
''Eclipse M2M IWG Topic Space Design Thoughts''
+
*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 + …)
  
''Within an MQTT design space, there are issues related to topic space design. &nbsp;This is not a unique concern for MQTT, in fact HTTP has already been through many of these issues with URL design. &nbsp;One way to think about MQTT and HTTP is as follows: The difference between MQTT and HTTP is directional: MQTT is to HTTP as PUSH is to PULL. &nbsp;SOAP and REST both use very different design styles on top of HTTP. &nbsp;Both styles are also possible in MQTT topic space design. &nbsp;The following topic space is more aligned with a REST style design. &nbsp;It has relatively few verbs and is organized around resources, which provide representations for the sensors, actuators and devices.''

''Example Topics:''  
+
=== Update on Testbeds ===
 +
'''Presenter Benjamin Cabé'''
  
''A request for the latest temperature value for zone 1 of refrigeration unit 13 at store 123.''
+
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, …).
  
''/READ/store/123/refrigeration-unit/13/zone-1/temperature''
+
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
  
''<br> A report of the latest temperature value for zone 1 of refrigeration unit 13 at store 123.''
+
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.
  
''/REPORT/store/123/refrigeration-unit/13/zone-1/temperature''
+
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.
  
''<br> A request to set the set-point for zone 2 of refrigeration unit 2 at store 456.''  
+
=== Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
''/WRITE/store/456/refrigeration-unit/2/zone-2/temperature-set-point''
+
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.
  
''<br> A request for all meta-data for zone 2 of refrigeration unit 2 at store 456.''
+
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.
  
''/META/store/456/refrigeration-unit/2/zone-2''  
+
=== Eclipse Leshan Press Release ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
''<br> A request for all sensor and actuator ids for a refrigeration unit 2 at store 456.''
+
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
  
''/LIST/store/456/refrigeration-unit/2''  
+
=== IoT World plans ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
''One of the first things you notice is that I've added the VERB in all caps as the first segment. &nbsp;This is by convention only. &nbsp;Next I have a multi-segment path that provides addressibility to the device in question. &nbsp;In these examples that is a refrigeration unit. &nbsp;Finally, I have multi-segment path that provides addressibility to the unique sensor and actuator in question. &nbsp;Multiple paths to the same device is a more advanced topic and not shown here. &nbsp;By limiting the verbs in use and defining tight semantics, it is possible to construct processes that bridge brokers and provide additional services(proxy servers, data historian, etc).&nbsp;''
+
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.
  
''<br> Payload Format''  
+
=== IoT Developer Survey ===
 +
'''Presenter: Roxanne Joncas'''
  
''The payloads are not shown, although I highly recommend something programming language neutral. &nbsp;Please do not directly serialize Java or C# objects, you will regret it later. &nbsp;XML can be very heavy-weight for embedded devices to process. &nbsp;I often use CSV or JSON for payloads when dealing with embedded systems. &nbsp;A translation client can be used to rebroadcast after turning XML into CSV/JSON and CSV/JSON back into XML if necessary for enterprise integration. &nbsp;''
+
On February 7, we launched the third annual IoT Developer Survey. Please take the time to complete the survey and to share it with your coworkers and community.

''<br> Advanced Topic Space Design''
 
  
''There are many other best practices for multi-reads, multi-write, meta-data update, dynamic sensor and actuator installation/removal, id claiming, admin features(log retrieval, firmware flashing, etc.). &nbsp;These are explicitly left out of this note in order to avoid distracting from the most simple operations.''

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 + …)
  
There was a discussion on how to get from the scenarios, to the architecture, design and implementation of key open interface points for gateways, servers and the applications. REST is an API that is recurring requirement and topic for M2M. It is a proposed element of the Mihini proposal and and as is it use for application integration with MQTT.  
+
Project Proposal: https://projects.eclipse.org/proposals/eclipse-ditto
  
The timing to do this is good as it was pointed out that both the Mihini proposal and the work Scott and Arlen are doing with Continua have very similar requirements for a RESTful interface. The M2M IWG has considerable combined experience in building M2M systems, and we expect further participate as the community grows. James suggested that the place to start is mapping topic spaces to devices and device data interfacing techniques that have been used before, today and may be used in the future. James will try and take a first pass at this. <br>

=== Update on Testbeds ===
 +
'''Presenter Benjamin Cabé'''
  
*Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation
+
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, …).
*Arlen Nipper, Paho
+
*Scott de Deugd, IBM
+
*Patrick Dempsey, Band XI
+
*Hilary Tomasson, Eurotech
+
*Benjamin Cabé, Sierra Wireless
+
  
== Project update  ==
+
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
  
The Lua framework proposal has been submitted to Eclipse: [http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/technology.mihini/ (Mihini). Everyone is requested to review the plan and to look for intersection and /or overlap with Paho compoents and plans.  
+
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.
  
From the Paho project, Scott said he will be responding to concerns that the project is not responding quickly enough to the community. He asked Ian about the contributor/committer process for the new Lua client being added to Paho. Ian suggested that the contributor -&gt; committer path may indeed not be the correct one for a major new contribution and agreed to work this off line with Scott to speed things up.  
+
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.
  
== MQTT Server Support  ==
+
=== Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
This topic has moved over to the Paho lists but it was pointed out that there is some confusion and we need to make clear that the proposal right now is only for C language. There is interest in Java support but no concrete proposal yet.  
+
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.  
  
== Scenarios  ==
+
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.
  
The group agreed on the scenarios although it was noted that we may need to go back and extend them for device management. There was a brief discussion on how to move forward, turning these into a high level architecture and requirements for existing and new projects. Arlen suggested we need to be sure we are addressing real customer problems today while looking out to where M2M and IoT will be in the near future. He said the we neeed to address the IT architects as a key audience that needs means to be able to mask much of the unnecessary complexities they are dealing with today to integrate physical world systems. Benjamin asked how we could also use this to bring the existing project closer together. The timing is good for this with the MQTT server support kicked off and the Mihini proposal that will be looking at APIs including REST. This will be a continuing topic for the IWG. &lt;br&lt;

Arlen gave the group an overview of oneM2M, a recently announced Standards consortium for M2M standards. The organization is closely aligned with ETSI and will work to consolidate various worldwide standards that affect M2M. Arlen thought the first oneM2M face-to-face meeting will be in September. As it appears we may have common goals for the M2M market, it was suggested that there may be ways in which Eclipse and oneM2M could cooperate. Scott and Arlen review this with Mike and Ian and see if introductions can be arranged.
+
== Agenda ==
 +
=== Presentation from the Eclipse Titan team at Ericsson ===
 +
'''Presenter: György Réthy'''
  
== Scenarios  ==
+
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
  
Scott suggested that it is time to close the scenario work as they do focus on key interface areas (device &lt;-&gt; M2M Gateway &lt;-&gt; M2M Server/Enterprise Server), and they map well to the current projects and to the proposed framework project. We will take this on in the following call.  
+
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.  
  
There was general agreement that we may soon have enough even with the limited scenarios to get started on this work.

=== Eclipse Foundation Security policy ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett '''
  
<br> <br>
+
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.
  
= July 10, 2012  =
+
There is a security team at the Eclipse Foundation, Jens Reimann and Julien Vermillard are on this team to represent IoT.
  
== Attendees  ==
+
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.
  
*Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation
+
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.

Benjamin gave a brief overview of an Lua framework for embedded applications being considered for Koneki. It was suggested we discuss this further when Marco from Eurotech was on as they were proposing a similar framework contribution at one time.
+
=== Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
Benjamin will narrow down two logos for the M2M developer portal, and send them out for decision on the next call.  
+
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.  
  
A new technical "Redbook" on MQTT and its application is available from IBM. Scott will send out a [http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redpieces/abstracts/sg248054.html link] and include it on the Paho project website.  
+
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.
  
== Scenarios  ==
+
For the IoT WG Meeting, feel free to suggest guest speakers. We already invited the OMA Group to give an update on LWM2M.
  
Arlen has added to the scenarios and problems. He will be doing more work to see if this can fit as an extension of the refrigeration scenario.
+
=== IoT Developer Survey ===
 +
'''Presenter: Roxanne Joncas'''
  
There was some discussion if these basic scenarios now provide enough to get the architecture work started. This may be possible, given the initial scope of the work to focus on interface between M2M gateway, and Enterprise or Web servers.  
+
On February 7, we launched the third annual IoT Developer Survey. Please take the time to complete the survey and to share it with your coworkers and community.
 +
*Link to promote/share: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/iotsurvey2017eclipseiot
 +
*Graphic for promotion: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:Iotsurveypartners.png
  
James suggested that we need to develop a useful vocabulary to describe the architectural approaches which may come down to "push vs pull". For example compare MQTT to HTTP and one could looking at how how topics would map to URIs. Similarly, with SOAP vs REST. We may be able to identify needed patterns.

=== 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).
  
Arlen reported that both IBM and Roger Light are now both interested in creating a proposal around Eclipse open source server support for the MQTT protocol. As IBM may be looking at RSMB, and Roger already has Mosquitto out in open source, the next step is to start a technical discussion about these code bases as potential starting points. This discussion will be now moved over to the Paho mailing list.
 
  
== Webinars  ==
+
=== 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
  
A proposal for two seminars was made. On would be an overall session on the M2M markets, technologies and opportunity. Arlen and Benjamin are interested in this. James proposed another piece to this that could bridge the overall view into the architectural and technical points that the IWG feels are important to address. So this webinar may end up having two parts. The second would be on MQTT, publish/subscribe and the applicability of those types of messaging patterns.

== Scenario/Problem Discussion  ==
+
== Security policies for IoT projects - Jens Reimann ==
 +
We have been doing some work on the security policies.
  
Arlen is introducing a scenario that can lead to requirements for less direct coupling between M2M/IoT applications and the protocols used by devices and controllers. He distributed a new Problem Description: “One-to-One Data Model for SCADA/Telemetry Information". A number of points were brought up in the discussion:
+
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
  
*Designs and implementations for M2M systems, standards, or integration often focus too much on a question like "well what about this protocol?". This is because often the device protocol interface is the application's means to access device data. This leads to unnecessarily tight coupling between the applications and the specific protocol used, which in turn can lead to "brittle" system design. Arlen gave some examples of this from SCADA application domains. The M2M IWG should look into this so that the M2M and IoT application and solutions markets can move forward more rapidly, being somewhat independent of device protocols and promote support of multiple protocols.  
+
== Update on a new IoT WG charter and Steering Committee - Ian Skerrett ==
*While M2M system developers sometimes design frameworks, abstraction layers, models and generators in order to quickly adapt to multiple protocols, a better solution is needed.  
+
*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.
*There will always be multiple protocols and standards - that is inherent to the space. Supporting/Integrating existing and new protocols is important and always will be . The IWG scenario work should result in identifying problems and solutions and a level of decoupling that reflects this, while encouraging rapid open application development and integration.  
+
*We need to define roles and responsibilities in the charter.  
*From an application developer perspective, the IWG architecture work should include where and how protocol conversion should be supported - e.g. in tools, frameworks and/or abstraction layers. This needs to address devices, edge controllers/gateways, and servers.
+
*If the community doesn’t agree on something eventually the Steering Committee can help.  
  
Arlen said he would factor this Problem description into an appropriate scenario and post these on the Wiki. Although the currently documented refrigeration scenario is not specifically SCADA-related, Arlen said he may be able to extend it to be representative of a larger class of M2M problems including the SCADA ones he has experience with.
+
== 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!
  
== Feedback on Eclipse Damos Proposal  ==
+
== 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.
  
There was a discussion about a new proposal, [http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/tools.damos/ Damos], recently published on Eclipse. Damos proposes a data flow oriented model to generate embedded system applications and simulations. It uses data models. Damos appears focused on creating the logic/algorithms for these embedded applications rather than their integration with servers and other applications. Given that this is model driven and proposed to run in Eclipse, the data models, the target embedded devices themselves and/or applications running on them may be of interest from an M2M perspective. For example, the sensor values should be compatible with what the M2M projects do with the proposed data model. Benjamin also noted that Damos appears to be based on Itemis technology and that he would followup with them.

'''Presenter: Kai Hackbarth, Bosch'''
  
Ian has decided that given the timing, it is not practical to participate in Connected World's Hackathon or have an Eclipse booth. He will be attending and promoting the Eclipse M2M IWG and projects. He will report back in two weeks and we can discuss participation and possibly supporting the Hackathon next year. <br> <br>

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

*Based on feedback and conversations, we will not have an Eclipse booth at Connected World. Ian will attend the conference and evangelize the IWG objectives.
+
*MQTT (Mosquitto)
 
+
*CoAP (Californium)
== Scenario Walk-through and Discussion  ==
+
*LWM2M (Leshan)  
 
+
   
Scott summarized the goals of the scenario work:
+
Would be good to have sandboxes for:  
 
+
'''Kapua (Jens Reimann)'''
*Document key needs obstacles, and inhibitors, both technical and market based, that the Eclipse M2M community can address with architecture and project deliverables.
+
*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.
*Document requirements to be addressed by follow-on architecture and open source project deliverables
+
*We will post this on iot.eclipse.org
 
+
Call today is to walk through the the first scenarios provided by Band XI to see if the format and level match our goals:
+
 
+
Overall comments on the [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Machine-to-Machine/M2MIWG/M2M_Scenarios#0002 Refrigeration Scenario]/Problems:
+
 
+
*Scott to update Wiki with these goals for further consideration
+
*Arlen suggested we identify what we want to accomplish and try to scope which scenarios we go after first. He suggested an immediate goal to help developers an integrators see how to "put together M2M applications" and, how the resulting code could feed into the concept of an "app store".
+
*Peter added that we need to also raise and focus on what are expected to be the main architectural issues. James suggested that we keep that in mind but that the problems should leads to architecture and corresponding frameworks.
+
*James noted that these initial scenario/problems imply a hardwired connection to the internet. Because wireless device connections are driving the M2M space, Arlen agreed to look over these scenarios from a wireless requirements perspective and to add additional scenarios representative of the wireless issues and opportunity.
+
*Peter noted that while this level of Scenarios are good, what we are identifying as "Problems" in the wiki will be what end up driving the technical work. Peter feels we need a Scenario and related Problems that are indicative of a "producer/consumer" architecture. He will try to add these.
+
*Ian reminded the group that while we may specific goals to get to an architecture and project deliverables, this level of Problems/Scenarios will also prove very educational for people trying to understand this space better.
+
*James indicated they would continue working scenarios when possible.

+
Press release will go out on May 24th.
+
 
+
== Update and Discussion on Marchitecture  ==
+
 
+
A new version incorporating edits/comments from last calls, is not yet available.
+
 
+
Scott asked that the last list of technical challenges be included as a bridge from the problem statement to the goals and objectives of the IWG. He also noted we need to highlight the need to focus on a effective level of decoupling between the producers of device data and the consumers, such as enterprise and web applications. Arlen may propose an additional chart on decoupling and the value to opening up new applications and markets.
+
 
+
Peter asked for more background on what is driving the volumes and opportunity on chart #2 and that, on chart #4, we not limit the market to B2B.
+
 
+
Ian thinks a final review draft could be ready in a few weeks.

+
 
+
Work on this is progressing. There is a joint call scheduled for this Friday. Hilary will update the IWG on next week’s call.
+
 
+
== Modeling Update  ==
+
 
+
The modeling work is focused on a means to describe device data and how it is transmitted on the “wire”. Benjamin is working on a use case to describe some of the requirements for this which he will put on the M2M IWG Wiki. The also is a sample application being developed demonstrate use of the Model.
+
 
+
== Scenarios and Problems  ==
+
 
+
To start looking at addressability and decoupling, James has updated a [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Machine-to-Machine/M2MIWG/M2M_Scenarios#0002 Food Refrigeration Unit Zone Control] scenario with a related Problem: [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Machine-to-Machine/M2MIWG/M2M-Problems#0002 Sensor and Actuator Identity and Addressability].

Call was opened up to exchange feedback from EclipseCon and the F2F Meeting
+
 
+
== Followups and Next Steps from the F2F Meeting  ==
+
 
+
As there was not sufficient time to review the Next Steps and ToDo items from the F2F Meeting, Scott asked to use call to walk through them for discussion and update. This have been added to the [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Machine-to-Machine/Face-2-Face-Meeting-Mar29#Next_Steps_and_Followups|wiki section for the March 29, 2012 F2F Meeting].
+
 
+
== OSGi Support on M2M Servers  ==
+
 
+
There was interest and discussion at EclipseCon around OSGi support on the MQTT server. Both Equinox and Virgo have come up as project to consider. Arlen and Wes have built OSGi server support before and suggest that multiple implementations should be supported. (edit: here is the ink to the Mailing List [http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/paho-dev/msg00023.html|discussion on OSGi] ) There was brief discussion about including this on the M2M sandbox server. Currently Mosquitto is C so support for OSGi would probably also lead to a discussion about Java support for the server in the project.
+
 
+
== Other contacts - EclipseCon  ==
+
 
+
*Andy talked to Hitachi folks about home automation. Hilary, Wes and Arlen said they have contacts to see if Hitachi is interested in the Eclipse M2M projects and IWG.
+
*He talked to some Motorola people there, who he will followup with.
+
*There were discussion about MQTT IA92 support that Andy will followup with Dave on.

== Discussion on Metamodel Description:  ==
+
 
+
Benjamin has updated the metamodel description on the Wiki with an introduction and purpose. No specific comments yet. Benjamin will send a note out to the mailing list to encourage review and comments. http://wiki.eclipse.org/Machine-to-Machine/M2MIWG/M2M_meta-model
+
 
+
Question came up on whether the metamodel is intended for use in the tooling for application integration and development, or also for defining device parameters and data interface to external systems? Benjamin responded that it is intended primarily for application development but once defined it could also be used for open interface integration.
+
 
+
A request was made to include an example of instantiating the metamodel. Benjamin was agreeable to this but said he cannot get to it until after EclipseCon.
+
 
+
== Discussion on Scenarios/Problems Description:  ==
+
 
+
A proposed format and examples for the Scenarios and related Problems are now on the Wiki. Arlen was OK with format and will add some relevant scenarios.

+
 
+
*Koneki: team is working to be part of Juno release stream
+
*Paho: C code available now. Java code ready and is getting new package names before release.
+
*M2M Sandbox Server: This is running now. Access control needs to be addressed. Ian will try to get someone from Eclipse IT to the F2F meeting. Arlen has some simple start-up documentation he will provide.
+
 
+
== Agenda for EclipseCon meeting  ==
+
 
+
Scott will update Wiki with items discussed today.
+
 
+
*Sandbox access control
+
*Discussion around a 2012 focus on “user experience” with Koneki, Paho and Sandbox.

== M2M meta-model  ==
+
 
+
(note from Benjamin: sorry that I likely did forget to write down some of the discussions around the model, feel free to complete!)
+
 
+
*Benjamin will add a preamble to the wiki page to describe in more details the purpose of the meta-model
+
*Peter: how about devices and sensors acting as data feeds?
+
*Arlen: it is more about devices and brokers than devices and servers.
+
*Scott: oBIX may be a good model to describe data. Arlen had use cases with oBIX and MQTT.
+

+
*It is suggested that the chairperson (and co-chairs if any) should be renewed every year
+
 
+
== Agenda for EclipseCon meeting  ==
+
 
+
*The meeting could start earlier if needed (even though there's the keynote in the morning)
+
*There will be a couple of newcomers (QNX, Thingworx, ...), maybe it'd make sense to present them the activities of the Group during the BoF and use the F2F meeting
+
*The main topics would be the M2M meta-model and marketing.

+
*Arlen: is there something to be done w/ CoAP?
+
*Scott: should we engage a couple of vertical areas?
+
*Benjamin: standardization may not be the next important thing to focus on while we don't have much to share
+
*IBM and Eurotech are pushing MQTT to OASIS anyway, but the question is: would MQTT make sense for other standards orgs such as ETSI?
+
*Ian: no hurry while we don't have a better and common understanding of the m2m apps anatomy and so on

*Get rid of the tentative roadmap section because it is stale in terms of timeline and we now have a dedicated roadmap document
+
*Membership rules: two different levels of membership so as it is still meritocracy based even though the group is open to everyone
+
**Is 2 ppl the right number of full-time appointed resources needed to be part of the steering committee?
+
***"Appoint at least 2 developers/technical resources to contribute to the creation of M2M WG technologies" means that resources can also work on sponsored projects
+
***Everybody agrees on the way membership rules are formulated
+
**What would be the requirements in terms of advocacy?
+
**Ian to propose something going in this direction
+
*Creation could (should) happen on Dec. 8th (since review started Nov. 8th)
+
**The list of initial members of the Steering Committee has to be finalized by then
+
**Mike and Scott suggest to send a remainder so as more people can have a chance to look at the charter
+
**Mike reminds that any Eclipse Fdn member meeting the participation requirements is in.

== Review of the first draft of the roadmap  ==
+
 
+
*Overview and background
+
**Ian: we should define M2M better in the first section
+
**Ian: is the roadmap only related to Eclipse projects?
+
**Ian: highlight that we want to build an industry consortium
+
*Basic Principles
+
**Arlen: the feedback on MQTT recent announcements is that ppl think that everybody seems to pick his specific protocol and promote it / try to turn it into a standard
+
**Mike &amp; Arlen: we are fine with existing protocols (recent discussion about DNP 3.0 in MQTT google group), we don't aim at replacing them. We want to be above existing protocols.
+
**There are questions still open in this section. Let's keep them as is and put the roadmap draft on the wiki.
+
**Arlen: use cases definition is a difficult task&nbsp;; especially if we have carriers involved (difficult to end up with use cases which are not too generic)
+
*M2M vision, purpose &amp; scope
+
 
+
''Mike reminds that the charter is not final yet. We are in a 30-day period where the community can give feedback. Even after that period of time, updates to the charter are still possible though.'' ''The M2M Industry Working Group is part of an Open Source Foundation: we are looking at code contributions, not ending up with standards/open standards.''
+
 
+
**Ian: detail as much as possible where we want to go. What would be the success criteria for Koneki, for Paho
+
**Synchronize the roadmap of individual projects / be sure they are in sync with the global roadmap of the IWG itself.
+
**Mike: if Mosquitto is going to be hosted at Eclipse, it has to be in the scope
+
**Ian: we should have a bottom-up approach --&gt; "Here is what we want to accomplish, do you want to help us?"
+
**Mike: need to have short iterations if possible
+
*Near term direction
+
**Everybody agrees that 12-18 months is a good duration (revision of the roadmap in ~6 months if needed)
+
**Ian: roadmap v1.0 will have to be voted (as well as how to revise it)
+
*Roadmap process:
+
**Mike: say that we solicit feedback from the community, but mentioning that the steering committee will have to vote/approve changes
+
 
+
== Face-to-face meeting  ==
+
 
+
*suggested date is Jan. 31st, in IBM Hursley
+
*TBC before Christmas.
+
 
+
== Recruitment  ==
+
 
+
*Members of the IWG discussed about companies that might be interested in joining the IWG (and becoming members of the EF)
+
*Recruiting universities and research institutes would be very valuable: they could run their projects as Eclipse projects…
+
 
+
== Mosquitto setup at Eclipse  ==
+
 
+
*Ian and Arlen still need to setup a meeting with Eclipse webmasters (user management, ACL, …)
+
  
= 15th Nov. 2011  =
+
'''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.

*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)
  
*BoF
 
**About 10-12 interested people: home automation hobbyists, ppl working in companies interested in M2M
 
**We need to agree on a common terminology: Benjamin to initialize a page on the wiki
 
**We need to come up with a "big picture"
 
**People don't quite get how MQTT will address the fragmentation in terms of "local" protocols (Modbus, CANbus, …)
 
***clarify what MQTT is and what MQTT is not
 
**"Communication challenge" ahead: everybody has its own definition of M2M
 
**We need a roadmap!
 
*Modeling / Hobbyists
 
**People really interested by the approach where you work on the abstraction of what the application is doing (e.g. get a temperature every 10 min)
 
*Setup a Mosquitto instance at Eclipse to lower the barrier for people (inc. hobbyists) to prototype more easily?
 
**Deploy an Ubuntu version of Mosquitto at eclipse.org
 
**Set-up to be discussed with Eclipse webmaster (Arlen and Ian)

=== Review of Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds Initiative ===
 +
'''Presenter: Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation'''
  
*Code is ready to go. (3.0 version of MQTT)  
+
*The feedback has been very positive. Helps us talk to the wider industry about what we are doing.
*CQ for IP review to be open soon
+
*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.)  
*Proposal to be clarified re: server-side stuff
+
*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'''
  
*Lua Dev Tools now available on the market
+
* It was a great event (about 14,000) in Santa Clara, California on May 16-18
*Great feedback so far from the Lua community
+
*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.

Agenda

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, …

Skipped this item - not enough PMC members on the call

4. Misc. updates

Open IoT Challenge: we will schedule a live hangout for project leads to answer any technical questions the participant may have. https://iot.eclipse.org/open-iot-challenge/

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.

IoT Developer Survey

Presenter: Roxanne Joncas

On February 7, we launched the third annual IoT Developer Survey. Please take the time to complete the survey and to share it with your coworkers and community.

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

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.
