SymbIoTe and AGILE will be part of a broad range of IoT initiatives presented at EclipseCon Europe 2016, October 25-27, in Ludwigsburg. EclipseCon Europe is the annual central European conference for Eclipse technologies. This year, SymbloTe and AGILE, both part of the IoT European Platforms Initiative, have been invited to demo their technology at the IoT Playground to be held on Wednesday, October 26th.
The goal of symbIoTe is to create an interoperable IoT ecosystem. It allows IoT platforms to open authorized access to their devices, while app developers can create innovative cross-platform applications without the need to operate and maintain the end-to-end IoT infrastructure.
The demo will showcase the first open-source symbIoTe release to monitor air quality by means of in-situ stations and wearable sensors. These sensors are managed by different platforms which expose the same open API to app developers. symbIoTe is able to search for sensors across different platforms, and helps integrate them into an IoT application. Participants onsite in Ludwigsburg will see how simple it is to build a web application displaying air quality data measured by wearable sensors and by in-situ stations operated on different platforms.
The AGILE IoT Gateway project is building a modular open-source hardware and software gateway for controlling a variety of IoT devices. It will provide a set of RESTful APIs and user interfaces for interacting with IoT Devices. Visitors to the IoT Playground demo will be invited to play with BLE sensors (like a TI Sensortag or a heartbeat sensor) and make them interact with ZigBee devices (such as connected lamps). They will learn how the application logic can be defined programmatically on the gateway using the project’s API and their favorite programming language. AGILE IoT will also show their graphical workflow interface based on Node-RED.
