What we're about

Market development applies an increasingly strong pressure on products development and costs. The use of proprietary operating systems with high unit license fees is no longer bearable. The use of free software Linux seems to be a very attractive alternative.

With the increasing performance of modern microprocessors, the implementation of the latest versions of the free Linux operating system can meet the very complex embedded systems technical requirements as well as increased market needs in functionality.

With the "Fribourg Linux Seminar", the iSIS (institute of Smart and Secured Systems) of HEIA-FR offers a biennial exchange platform for all actors developing Embedded Systems under Linux.

We are also on Twitter (https://twitter.com/frilinux) and you can download the flyers and handouts of the previous seminars from our GIT repository (https://gitlab.forge.hefr.ch/fribourg-linux-seminar/seminars).

16th Fribourg Linux Seminar : OS and Protocols for the IoT

Haute école d'ingénierie et d'architecture

# Agenda: 16h45 : Reception of Attendees 17h00 : Welcome (Daniel Gachet, Professor HEIA-FR) 17h05 : MicroPython for the IoT (Jacques Supcik, Professor HEIA-FR) According to the 2018 survey of Stack Overflow, Python is one of the most loved programming languages and the most wanted one. Python is used in many world-class software companies as well as in high schools, colleges and universities. MicroPython is an implementation of the Python 3 programming language optimized for embedded systems. During this presentation, I will present MicroPython and its derivatives, and I will show you some typical use cases for MicroPython. In the second part, I will demonstrate how to install the system on a cheap microcontroller and during a live coding session, I will implement a functional IoT device. 17h55 : Mbed OS for fast IoT prototyping and product development ? (Serge Ayer, Professor HEIA-FR) Today, when conceiving and developing an IoT system, developers and companies are faced with having to choose a communication system and technology from a very wide range of available solutions. Each solution usually offers its own operating system, development platform and language, and therefore requires a long learning phase. Since a lot of the proposed platforms use Arm-based microcontrollers, Mbed OS could be a solution to this problem. Arm Mbed OS is a free, open-source embedded operating system designed for the Internet of Things. It provides all the features required for a connected product based on Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers. In particular, it offers different development environments based on the C++ programming language, a RTOS and support for various connectivity technologies, including Bluetooth Low Energy, LoRA and Thread. This presentation will give a short introduction to this platform and demonstrate a few prototypes using different connectivity technologies. 18h45 : Information HEIA-FR (Roland Scherwey, Professor HEIA-FR) 19h00 : Aperitif and Networking # Sponsor : http://alumni.eia-fr.ch # Slides / Languages : EN: The slides will be in English and the talks will be either in English, French or German (according to the speaker's preference).
