Adoption of Eclipse based development tools in large organizations usually requires several adaptations and customizations to meet the needs of specific user groups. Traditionally this is accomplished by having a group of "expert users" in the organization develop specific Java plugins for customizing and extending the functionality of the tool. However, this approach can lead to significant complexity and a high maintenance burden, especially if multiple versions of the software are in use at the same time in different parts of the organization.
Eclipse Cyclone DDS is an implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS), a standard for interoperable, secure, and efficient data sharing, used at the foundation of some of the most challenging Consumer and Industrial IoT applications, such as Smart Cities, Autonomous Vehicles, Smart Grids, Smart Farming, Home Automation and Connected Medical Devices.
The democratisation of connectity and computational capabilities are making it possible for virtually anything to be connected and thus to share data as well as take decentralised decisions. Several of these new devices gaining connectivity are powered by small micro-controllers, connected through LoWPAN or LPWAN and in most of the cases battery-powered. As a consequence of the expanded connectivity, the scale of systems is growing, as it is the level of asymettry.
Fog computing aims at providing horizontal, system-level, abstractions to distribute computing, storage, control and networking functions closer to the user along a cloud-to-thing continuum. Whilst fog computing is increasingly recognized as the key paradigm at the foundation of Consumer and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), most of the initiatives on fog computing focus on extending cloud infrastructure. As a consequence, these infrastructure fall short in addressing heterogeneity and resource constraints characteristics of fog computing environments.
Device connectivity is one of the most common issues IoT developers need to solve. Having an open source solution based on the standardized protocols that solves recurring connectivity problems is a very useful tool to have.
Meet Eclipse Hono, a cloud-based IoT connectivity platform which provides remote interfaces for device connectivity and mechanisms for uniform interaction with devices regardless of the communication protocol.
How to integrate and use the eclipse 4diac runtime environment on your custom hardware target.
In the different IoT presentations for the industry 4.0, we often talk about the problem of data processing but very rarely the equipment that produces them.
This presentation will explain how to use the eclipse 4diac project to create an industrial PLC device with your custom electronic board.
