It’s playtime again! We are happy to bring you the sixth installment of the IoT Playground at EclipseCon Europe. This year, the Playground is located in the Theater Foyer. All stations will be active on Wednesday starting at 12:00. Most will have extended hours on Tuesday and Thursday as well, so stop by and see what’s new and cool in open IoT!
Eclipse Kuksa Rover
Eclipse Kuksa shows how you can utilize open source technologies to create connected driving applications. Eclipse Kuksa contains an in-vehicle platform, a cloud backend (based on other Eclipse IoT technologies), and an online IDE (based on Eclipse Che and Eclipse Theia). Develop your own vehicle application in the browser, push your application directly to our instance in the Eclipse Kuksa App Store, and test it on one of the Rovers!
Roadside Assistance (based on the Eclipse Kuksa Rover)The setup represents a car retrofitted with the Kuksa platform. The Kuksa dongle combines compute capabilities, OBD access, and connectivity. The Kuksa applications can monitor the vehicle, display information on a mobile phone and head unit and send data to the cloud, and facilitate diagnostics functions such as checking throttle valve functionality from a cloud application. Buttons can be used to simulate error conditions in the car.
Eclipse Keyple Ticketing Demo
The Eclipse Keyple Ticketing Demo demonstrates how to use Eclipse Keyple, an open source SDK that offers a universal layer for managing contactless readers and architecture as well as a layer for managing the Calypso Open Standard, a ticketing standard used in many transport networks for secure, contactless ticketing. The demo shows how a small bus network can load tickets onto a card, load tickets onto a smartphone, and validate tickets on a bus.
Digital Situation Map with
The Monica project developed small GPS tracking devices that use LoRa technology to transmit their positions every few seconds. The positions are shown live in a digital situation map and can be tagged with relevant information. Using the map, decision-makers at an open-air event can track the positions of the deployed action forces (police, paramedics, etc.) and coordinate them more effectively. The transmission via LoRa is independent of any WiFi infrastructure or mobile network, and can be deployed ad-hoc in remote locations. Visitors to our demo may carry a device and follow their location live on the map.
LoRa GPS Trackers
The Pax-Counter is a joint project of Eclipse IoT and Eclipse MicroProfile, created at this year’s Community Day! IoT devices talk (over the air) to a gateway, which forwards data to a JakartaEE/MicroProfile application that stores the data and shows the results. The devices count the number of MAC addresses around them (but do not store the addresses or forward them). By distributing multiple Pax-Counters over the Forum, we can show where people are. We can also connect Bosch BME280 sensors to measure air temperature and humidity, and see if the number of MAC addresses corresponds with a change in those measurements.
