Berlin Art Event: Eclipse community is needed

logo-200x200-eclipseDear Eclipse Community,

Are you interested to learn about Eclipse IoT in a unique way while also supporting a community art project? Then read on!

During the DemoCamp in Berlin last month, Carla Hubbard and Eric Fanghanel from Jolocom gave a sneak peek at the art exhibition that will be presented in Berlin in July 2017. The contest is called “The Adaptation Contest – Using IoT to create Art, using Art to envision the Internet of Things.”. The objective of the project is to bring the general public closer to the Internet of Things (IoT) through immersive/interactive art installations. To that end, there will be several art installations deployed in the city of Berlin that will demonstrate how IoT can be used to create interactions with citizens. You can find their presentation here: Art event for AGILE in Berlin (2017).

Art event for AGILE in Berlin, July 2017 (Eclipse DemoCamp)

On May 12, Jolocom presented to the Berlin Eclipse community their artistic exhibition which will happen in Berlin in July 2017. You can find their presentation here: Art event for AGILE in Berlin (2017).

This exhibition will involve the deployment of several artistic installations in the city of Berlin that will demonstrate how IoT, through AGILE, can be used to create interactions with citizens by illustrating Open Data, input from users and data collected from the piloting activities.

The objective of their project is to bring the public at large closer to IoT through immersive/interactive art installations

  • Involve the community of artists and developers in Berlin with the technology and with each other
  • Incite a dialogue of IoT

This project will be managed as a contest: Artists will be invited to submit their proposal on one of the four different categories:

  • Quantified Self assisted by bioAssist,
  • Smart Cities assisted by Libelium,
  • Interactive Spaces assisted by ATOS and
  • Dangerous Externalities.

The four winners will be chosen from these submissions by a panel of artists, developers, and manufacturers who will assess both the artistic merit of the pieces as well as the technical viability within the given time frame.

If you are an artist and want to join the contest, please contact us: iot.is.art@agile-iot.eu.

For the others, stay tuned…

European DroneConvention 2016

The European DroneConvention 2016 was on May 10, 2016. Tom Sorgeloos of Orange/Mobistar presented a talk called “The cellular network: a vital link in the world of drones.” Slides are available here.

Orange, i-Minds and Rombit participate in the Agile European Horizon 2020 project in order to investigate how drones can be used in case of a fire, explosion or other incident in the Antwerp Port regions. How can drones be deployed to get a better insight in the situation even before the emergency services arrive by using sensors and images sent through the Agile gateway and over the Orange 4G network in real time. More use cases in safety and environment are considered, which is one of the AGILE Pilot Projects, Air Quality and Pollution Monitoring.

 

 

 

The Open Source Innovation Spring 2016

Two AGILE partners were invited to talk at The Open Source Innovation Spring 2016 on May 3 in Paris.

Philippe had the opportunity to introduce the AGILE project to the Open Source Parisian community which was pretty exited by the planned pilot projects.
