IoT Playground ECE 2016

This page is for organizing the Eclipse IoT Playground at EclipseCon Europe 2016.

IoT Playground at EclipseCon Europe 2016

We are having an IoT Playground at EclipseCon Europe this year, and encourage you to participate! The IoT Playground allows everyone to show what they are doing. Anyone can play! Companies can present their IoT-related hardware, software, tools, and gadgets, and individuals can show what they are designing, building, and using. Hands-on activities will help attendees learn, share, and show off a bit. So pack your latest IoT toy, and hang out at the Playground.

Space is limited, so please submit by the September 9 deadline, and include as much information as possible (title, description, hands-on activities, connection with Eclipse or open source, etc.).

When: Wednesday, October 26, 2016, 9:45 - 20:00 (Setup time Tuesday, October 25, 15:45 - 17:00)
What: A place to show off what you are doing with IoT — hardware, software, tools, gadgets, demos, programming challenges, or anything else that is fun and IoT-related
How: Add your info to this page by Friday, September 9
Who: Playground participants must be registered conference attendees

To see what’s been done before, check out the Playground participants from 2015 and 2014.

PolarSys: Meet the PolarSys rover at ECE

  • Leaders: Gaël Blondelle (


The PolarSys rover was introduced last year at the IoT playground of EclipseCon Europe 2015. We had fun with people there who were there when we managed to move the tracks of our rover through cross-compiled

This year, join us for the next steps:

  • Demo of the tool chain from models to code,
  • Tentative race between PolarSys rovers,
  • ... and more.

MicroEJ: the Edje project

  • Leader: Laurent Lagosanto (


Come to the IoT playground and see MicroEJ's update on the Edje project.

The Edje project defines a standard high-level Java API called Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for accessing hardware features delivered by microcontrollers (MCU) such as GPIO, DAC, ADC, PWM, etc. that can directly connect to native libraries, drivers and board support packages provided by silicon vendors with their evaluation kits. MCUs are small low-cost low-power 32-bit processors designed for running software in resource-constrained environments: low memory (typically KB), flash (typically MB) and frequency (typically MHz).

The booth will feature a demo developed with a mix of IoT technologies, the device peripherals access being provided through the API defined in the Edje project.

The development process of the demo will also be featured, showing how MicroEJ Studio (freely available at can be used to develop and test Edje applications using the Edje reference implementation on MicroEJ, available on both simulators and evaluation boards like the STM32F746GDISCOVERY.
