EclipseCon 2013 Tutorial plan.

Tutorial material is hosted at https://github.com/SierraWireless/eclipsecon2013-m2m-tutorial


Show Mihini

  • show key APIs such as logging, sched, airvantage, devicetree, (sms?)...
  • show how it's easy to do I/O manipulation and wireless communication

Koneki for Mihini

  • show how Lua is easy to edit thanks to LDT tooling
  • show EE and remote development for Mihini


Key steps to reproduce the tutorial

Installation of Lua Development Tools (all-in-one bundle)

M3DA Server


Run you own instance:

End user android application

Running Mihini on RaspberryPi

Compile and run Mihini manually

Available instructions here

  • Copy (git clone?) the sources of Mihini on the Raspberry Pi
Provide a copy of the git repo on the USB stick???

  • Compile Mihini (and its Lua VM)
  • Brief presentation of the defaultconfig ; tweak the few settings that will simplify development

Setting up the Arduino

Exact Demo arduino code is in --> 
instalation of the Modbus stack --> https://github.com/kartben/mihini-greenhouse-demo/tree/master/SimpleModbusSlaveExample


The main hardware will be a Raspberry Pi (running Mihini) connected to an Arduino ; the Arduino itself being connected to several sensors/actuators.

  • this might not be the best option for the US market (sounds look it is way more expensive than in Europe?)

Ordering everything from Adafruit would be:
