Ex Machina: Middleware for a modbus energy monitoring solution

In early May, Ex Machina, one of the 8 winners of the first open call, presented its progress with the AGILE platform to professional IoT developers and advanced IoT geeks in Athens.

Manolis Nikiforakis, Ex Machina CEO, described an environment for building powerful industrial IoT solution, using a typical energy monitoring use-case as an example.

The Ex Machina solution is built on open source technologies like Eclipse Kura, Eclipse Kapua, Eclipse hawkBit, Thingsboard.io, Agile-IoT, Resin.io, Node-RED, openHAB, Raspberry Pi, ESP8266/32, Modbus, and MQTT.

AGILE-IoT presented at Techforum eXplore at Worldline

Techforum Iberia is an internal event within Worldline, where experts come from different locations around the world to Barcelona. At the event, they share technical knowledge around innovative and disruptive topics such as blockchain, Big Data, IoT, the main achievements of various projects, and more.

It’s the perfect opportunity for experts and managers to interact, share ideas, and exchange experiences in a friendly atmosphere. It’s recognized by our company as a best practice to host this event to share internally. That’s why Techforum Iberia 2018 has been our 3rd edition of this successful event.

The event was held on the 30th January 2018 and offered twelve 45-minute sessions.

AGILE-IoT was presented in one of the sessions, where our development team showed a short demo. It demonstrated how the AGILE gateway can connect different IoT devices, showing its added value to improve the user experience.

Dual Use, the Sky-Watch use case

Dual-use in technology means that it can be used for both peaceful and military purposes. In this context, Sky-Watch has been invited by the European Commission to explain how H2020 funded project helps his business strategy.

AGILE provided Sky-Watch with the opportunity – and funding – to trial this new technology, without the need to search for commercial investors who tend to be risk-averse. Being part of a consortium also put Sky-Watch in contact with major companies, providing credibility, knowledge, and opportunities for further collaborative efforts.

Participation in Horizon 2020 gave us access to new technology and meant that we could provide consortium partners with something they did not have. ”

Michael Messerschmidt, Chief Business Development Officer, Sky-Watch

AGILE-IoT is participating to the Open Education Platform. Join us!

The Open Education Platform (OEP) proposes a comprehensive, coherent and standardized education offer on IoT. The user can provide a course or take one, recommend a book, look for an event and much more. Furthermore, it is possible to use the search engine for exploring OEP database or browse among resource categories to sort contents. Once you found what you were looking for, you can rate the resource and leave a comment.

If you couldn’t find what you were looking for, you can ask for help on OEP Marketplace. If you have a specific issue you want to share, you can launch an OEP Challenge and let OEP community find the right solution with you.

If you searched through the platform but did not find the lesson you were looking for or you see one essential IoT-related topic which is not addressed among the courses available, you can let OEP know and the platform will identify the organizations, teachers, and trainers who could provide you with adapted resources.

If you are an entrepreneur exploring new grounds and willing to improve your proof of concept, or if you developed a solution and want to assess its field of applications, you can put your innovation between the hands of the IoT community and reinforce its value through co-creation.
