Perhaps we don't all hear about them every day, but thanks to the ETHZ and local research centers, Switzerland, and Zurich in particular, is an important "nerve center" of activity in the IoT world.
What are some of the leading local IoT experts working on?
What projects are active?
What should you know about the tools that are available to launch your own project?
In this meeting we will have presentations by meetup group members and community leaders:
- Simon Mayer (http://people.inf.ethz.ch/mayersi), Institute for Pervasive Computing (http://vs.inf.ethz.ch/), ETH Zurich
- Cuno Pfister (http://www.gsiot.info/about-me/), CEO Oberon microsystems (http://www.oberon.ch) and author of Getting Started with the Internet of Things: Connecting Sensors and Microcontrollers to the Cloud (http://www.gsiot.info/) (published by O'Reilly, available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Getting-Started-Internet-Things-Microcontrollers/dp/1449393578/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1306414517&sr=8-2))
- Thomas Amberg (http://ch.linkedin.com/pub/thomas-amberg/28/297/886), founder of Yaler.net (https://yaler.net/)
During this meeting, following the speakers, we will begin planning future group meetings with innovative and informal formats to encourage those who want to bring and/or to see the demo devices that others have built.
After the meeting, join us for casual drinks and snacks during networking.
We want to thank the evening host and sponsor of this meetup's venue, AutoID Labs Switzerland (http://www.autoidlabs.ch/).
