• Open Source Internet Of Things Meetup #14 : IoT Buildout

    Come and participate in the Open Source Internet of Things! The Internet of Things is rapidly developing into a new set of tools. Collaboration and tool development are our focus this year as we continue our meeting series. After our first hour of sharing concepts and ideas we will start our new Buildout series. The Buildouts focus on hands on creation of working Internet of Things prototypes and potential services which are both open source and proprietary in nature. Our overall view is that in order for the internet of things to build out it needs to be based on a set of Open Source Tools, the development of which is now well underway. Our hour of discussion will be a community oriented set of talks which will survey the emerging landscape. 1 hour of discussion 2 hours of buildout Lots of new boards and sensors are out there, several methods of deployment are available, and we would like to gather with the #OSIOT community and facilitate the development of new projects. Welcome members to bring their projects to share and build out in collaboration. In this meeting we will demonstrate how to get started building IoT applications with the tools we introduced at the last meeting.

  • OSIOT: Seminar by Pierre Kil of OpenRemote Project

    Please join us on September 24th for a seminar presented by the Open Remote project: OpenRemote is an open source initiative of the founder of JBoss, Marc Fleury, and Juha Lindfors. In 2008 it started out of frustration with the extremely expensive home automation solutions. With a lack of dominant protocols, and extremely expensive hardware, a home automation project would easily start at 10 thousands of dollars. Integration was labour intensive and costs were hidden in the expensive hardware. OpenRemote started as an open source solution for home automation, integrating any protocol and running on any standard hardware, as it is build on Java. Today, with an explosion of connected devices, with low costs and low energy consumption, as well as the abundance of tablets and smartphones, we are evolving beyond traditional building automation, which some call the Internet of Things. Pierre will share the background of OpenRemote and it's architecture. Additionally he will show examples of less traditional solutions in healthcare, community interaction, and energy management and the typical challenges that also go beyond technology. Since we will always remain an open source company in products, but more importantly in our DNA, we look forward to meeting the OSIOT members and getting their views on the internet of things About the speaker: Pierre Kil joined OpenRemote in August 2012, responsible for business development and sakes. Before joining OpenRemote, Pierre was responsible for several innovative organizations within Philips in Europe and Asia. Most recently he was responsible for a global RnD organization within Philips Lighting ventures and startups. Pierre graduated from Eindhoven University of Technology with a Master in Mechanical Engineering, Process and Product Design. In addition he has a Master in Business Marketing from TiasNimbas. Pierre is married, has two daughters and currently lives in Endhoven, The Netherlands In his free time he enjoys travelling running and sailing.

  • For this group of folks interested in IOT

    Pillsbury Law Firm,

    Right before our eyes, the world has quickly evolved such that there is everything digital around every minute we're awake – walk-drive-work, sit-run-talk, eat-exercise-think, or even when we are sleeping! As recent as four years ago, you wouldn’t think so. From apps that allow you to play games with your mind to those measuring your breathing and your output on a toilet! There are hackthons by mobile manufactures to find gems to boost the device design and consumer use cases. And there are incubators and accelerators focusing on teams that can be creative in h/w product design with ability to crank out app to run “that thing” and put on the AppStore or Google Play. To explore such exploding, emerging technologies, we've invited thinkers, and entrepreneurs and YOU, to join us for an evening of exciting open discussions.

Semantic Repository of Things gives: Hardware vendors’ products the ability to interoperate with a broad array of things using standardized models, resulting in customization of solutions and thus higher valued products. Service Providers the ability to easily add value in the form of customizable features. Users access to richer environments, greater optimization, and the ability to turn capital assets to managed resources. More information regarding this project can be obtained from the following link. Read more... (http://osiot.org/?q=node/28) Data Envelopes for the IoT (Internet of Things). By Jesus Monroy, Jr. On the Internet, a general statistic is 90% of users consume, less than 2% produce. However, with the advent of IoT (Internet of Things), the balance will shift. If you are a producer of data, you will be concerned with safeguarding your data. The talk will outline some Open Source methods that will safeguard your raw data, but will allow your findings to reap the benefits. Jesus Monroy Jr. is an Web & Mobile developer with a broad range of experience, from education, to gaming, to CDN (before it had that name), and robotics. 6:30 - 9:30 Demos IoT Toolkit connected Weather Sensor Demo now uses the local Raspberry Pi gateway, cloud service hosting IoT Toolkit, and pushes updates to Xively Come by and fill out a card and play the Sensor Playspace Demo by OSIOT Co-Founder and Conceptual Artist Catt Avery We hope to see you there.
