Internet of Things in Manufacturing

Today I will talk about you how the Internet of Things can be used in manufacturing, and I will show you how the current state of a connected production plant can be efficiently communicated to managers, workers, and even executives.   One of the opportunities with the Internet of Things in manufacturing is to increase the factory visibility, i.e. what is happening on the factory floor. With the machines and other inventory being connected and equipped with sensors, anything out of the ordinary can be instantly detected. Any problem in the production line can affect a large part of the…

Virtual IoT | Building the Internet of Things with the Eclipse IoT stack: a practical example

It may seem hard to get started with the Internet of Things (IoT) with so many technologies, protocols, hardware platforms, … involved. In this session, Benjamin Cabé from the Eclipse Foundation will cover all you need to know to start building IoT solutions using Java and open technologies like MQTT, CoAP, OSGi, or LWM2M. A real-life application (smart greenhouse) will be used as an example and you will most likely leave the session craving for building a very similar application yourself!  

Webinar: Impact of Internet of Things (IoT) on Australian Electrical Industry

According to Telsyte, Australian IoT home products and services in Australia to grow almost eleven-fold in the next few years from $289 million in 2015 to $3.2 billion in 2019, there will be 20.8 billion connected objects by 2020. That’s more things than people on earth. Still wondering why the IoT (internet of things) is so important?   The number of connected objects by 2020 is astounding and exponential, with so many developments taking place so fast, electrical contractors, installers, electricians and nearly everyone in the electrical industry should learn about the opportunities IoT brings to Australian electrical industry.  …

Gain real time and predictive insights on your Internet of Things

Continuous streams of data are generated in every industry from sensors, business transactions, social media activity, etc. Within these streams of data lie business insights that are waiting to be unlocked. By querying these streams in real time, it becomes possible to ask key questions repeatedly, millions of times on millions of data points, thereby enabling the discovery of business opportunities and the realization of the “power of now”!  

Internet of Things # 1, Programming the ESP8266

Today we bring you the first video of a series on the Internet of Things using the ESP8266 module.   In today’s video, we want to show you how to easily upload our programs to ESP8266 using the Ampy application. In addition we will show how to create a simple program using Spyder, the editor that includes the Anaconda distribution that we have installed in the previous videos., Internet of Things 2016

This video has been featured at the Internet of Things 2016 event on 19th and 20th of April in Helsinki, Finland. It demonstrates the ease of use of IoT-Ticket – and how big-data and analytics powered dashboards and reports can be created and rolled out in minutes from within your web-browser!  

Internet of Things Simulator GUI Demo

As a part of the Internet of Things Course, in a group of five developed a simulator right from scratch for simulating the Internet of Things (IoT) network with smart objects being a part of this network.   The simulator has API functions for connecting, accessing, mutating and disconnecting the smart objects from the IoT network.   The simulator also had features like connecting your smart objects like a temperature sensor to your Twitter Account wherein there will be a Tweet from the account if the sensor reaches a threshold temperature. Used the twitter4j API for connecting the application to…

Internet of Things – Wearable Sensors

Today I will talk about how you can make wearable sensors publish their data to the cloud via a mobile phone. I will create a simple iPhone app that collect information from a wearable sensor using Bluetooth and then publish that information to an MQTT broker.   The idea of wearables is not new, and depending on definition, one could argue that one of the first was the 500 year old Abacus ring (…). The thing that has made them more interesting recently is their connectivity, which makes them part of the Internet of Things. Making them connect themselves would…

Internet of Things | Part 3: IOT Plant

IOT_Plant Post data to data.nextronic’s stream server, using an ESP8266.   This sketch uses an ESP8266 to POST sensor readings to nextronic’s data logging streams (   A post will be sent every 3 seconds.   Before uploading this sketch, there are a number of global vars that need adjusting:   WIFI Setting: Fill in your wifi network ssid and password data stream inputs: Fill in your data stream’s public, private, and data FIELDS names before uploading! Hardware Hookup:   These components are connected to the ESP8266’s I/O pins: D1 – DHT22 sensor for moisture and temperature A0 – soil…
