IoT Playground

This page is for organizing the Eclipse IoT Playground at EclipseCon Europe 2014. (See the IoT page on the ECE website here.)

We are currently tracking progress with this Google doc.

Organization Proposals

Eurotech: Shoot-a-Pi

  1. DAY 1 - Create your target device by wiring sensors and leds to the GPIOs of the Raspberry PI.
  2. DAY 2 - Create your embedded application via Kura 1.0 for Eclipse to remote control your target device.
    • Count shots reported by the bluetooth laser gun.
    • Detect when the laser gun hits the target reading the light sensor.
    • Drive the leds using GPIOs when the laser gun hits the target.
    • Publish the number of shots and hits to the cloud via MQTT.
    • Build a Web-based shooting dashboard by reading shots information from the MQTT broker with web sockets
    • Be creative and expand on the above scenario with a buzzer and other goodies.
  3. DAY 3 - Play the match and Win your Prize !

OSGi: Demos with Pis
Susan asked to keep the details confidential for now.
Question: do participants need their own 16GB SD card?

Bredex: Eclipse Techology Stack
We would like to demo an Eclipse Technology Stack using Jubula, SmartHome (actually openHAB), Mosquitto, Paho, some Eclipse runtime stuff and Lego Mindstorm (which is sadly not an Eclipse project) running on a bunch of computers including Raspberry Pi. We will have some sort of challenge (TBD) where we would give away a Mindstorm NXT to the winner(s). We would have the 2 students who did this as part of their bachelor thesis demo the stack and help interested attendees with the challenge.

MicroEJ: Embedded Java Platforms Ready for MCU-based Mass Market IoT Devices
In this session, all attendees (up to 150) will get a free hardware starter kit to manipulate MicroEJ. MicroEJ is a deep-embedded-Android : an embedded RTOS + a standard embedded Java Virtual Machine + embedded stacks (communication to peripherals). Although it provides a full standard embedded Java execution environment, the "main" difference with Android is its footprint, which starts at 30Kbytes of flash (program memory) and few Kbytes of RAM. Providing an execution-in-place architecture (no code copy) and a C/asm plug to Java-wrap any C libraries (ELF), optional application life cycle, it makes Java programming available for all microcontrollers (MCU), such as Renesas's RX/RZ family, STMicroelectronics’s STM32 family, Freescale's Kinetis family, NXP's LPC family ... which are at the heart of all smart and IoT devices around us, in industries such as Consumer, Industrial, White Goods, Metering, Health Care, Home Appliances, Automotive, Networks, Modeling, ...
In this session, we will demonstrate (and show on real devices) how proven Java application design strategies (Object Oriented Programming, RAM optimizing with GC) can apply to design-to-cost embedded electronic systems, to sustain efficient design processes for embedded systems in order to meet fast time-to-market and to provide the Java engineering community with new opportunities to design software for such systems. We will explore for 1$ to 5$ chips : (1) regular Java application programming (2) Java-C synergies with underlying Operating System; (3) Graphical User Interface design with MicroEJ MicroUI/MWT Java solution; (4) OSGi Service Oriented Application.
