Exposing M2M to the REST of us

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

In the ”Internet of Things” (IoT) vision the physical world blends with virtual one, while machine-to-machine interaction improve our daily life. Clearly, how these virtual objects are exposed to us is critical, so that their user interface must be designed to support the easiness of usage that is driven by the users’ needs, which is different from what machines requires. These two requirements must be solved, and an integrated solution should emerge, if we want to bring the IoT to the 50 billions network that is predicted to became in the next years.
In this talk, we will discuss how to make “your” house chat with you, all using open source software and hardware. Last year, we open sourced the QEST broker (http://qest.me) which allow you to interconnect smart objects and web applications. QEST is based on MQTT: a binary publish/subscribe protocol which is being standardized inside OASIS. QEST also exposes MQTT through a REST interface, thus allowing any developer to exchange JSONs with physical things in a few lines of code.
