Demo Day at TU Graz, Austria

The AGILE consortium had its quarterly plenary meeting at the end of March in Graz, Austria. FBK / Create-Net, AGILE project leader, took advantage of this opportunity to ask each of the partners to create a demonstration focusing on one aspect of the project for which they were responsible or involved. This resulted in an excellent demo session where we were able to take the pulse of the project.

This post lists and describes most of these demonstrations in order to share with you this excellent feedback.

  • IMEC/iMinds presented an interesting Node-RED flow describing the behaviour of a Pulse Check. It uses an Oxymeter that can automatically send email notifications . For example, you could choose to be notified if your grandma doesn’t feel well. You can even personalize the messages ”ALERT: Grandma isn’t well” [Imec Slides]
  • Eclipse Foundation ran a “meta-demo” by presenting the Getting Started document describing how to build a simple demo with AGILE. In this case, a demo displaying greenhouse conditions (temperature, humidity, etc.)
  • Worldline a.k.a. ATOS presented a great demo of a Smart Beacon connected to a Digital turn-on-matic to manage a queue-line of customers in a grocery store. They also presented the associated mobile app to access to some discount coupons while you are shopping in the store. [Wordline Slides]
  • Jolocom made a neat demo presenting the WebID AP,  which is an authentication flow and secured data flow. [Jolocom Slides]
  • University of Passau presented AGILE-IDM (ID management) APIs. The use case was presented as a office door sign that informs visitors of the owners whereabouts depending on the permissions given to the visitor through their ID or lack thereof. Juan David’s demo showed how to leverage contextual information (who is in front of the door) to show different information while using AGILE software stack, and AGILE-IDM. [Passau Slides]
  • ATOS demoed how to deploy a Node-RED flow via the Heroku Cloud platform. They explained how to push a Node-RED flow to the Cloud and how to send data from a dummy sensor to Node-RED through the Cloud.
  • Sky-Watch explained how they use the Local Data Storage APIs to store, manage, and monitor some data locally while the AGILE will be embedded in one of their drone. [Sky Watch Slides]
  • Resin.io presented how to build and deploy an AGILE microservices on top of ResinOS. Graig wrote a great tutorial explaining how to structure an agile service.
  • BioAssist showed a cool demo of the AGILE gateway being connected to Hexiwear, a device that monitors and displays the user’s vital signs.  Andreas shown how a Node-RED flow could look like to be able to manage such device. [BioAssist Slides]
  • Orange Belgium showed an exciting implementation of an AGILE solution embedded in a Drone. This demo covers the 3 phases of a flight: the start (drone and sensors selection), the flight (realtime drone and sensor information) and the history of the flight (recorded data from the previous flights). [Orange Slides]
  • Eurotech presented Eclipse Kura running as Docker Container in AGILE on the industrial gateway. Matteo used this opportunity to also demo Kura Wires and some of the great and integral features of Kura.
  • University of Graz demoed their AGILE Recommender and Configurator modules that are accessible either directly from their API or through Node-RED modules. [TU Graz Slides]
  • Inria showed how to use the IoT-Lab testbed, and initial integration of a prototype AGILE gateway (makers version) in the testbed. [Inria Slides]
  • Finally, Libelium concludes this great demo day by presenting their awesome AGILE Maker’s Shield for Raspberry Pi and showing some of its integrated features like the GPS, the ADC, the temperature, humidity and pressure sensor, the sockets connected to two XBee modules, and a lot of colourful LEDs.
