Eclipse M2M Technologies in Action – IoT Systems for People Counting with Eclipse Kura and Eclipse BIRT.
Measuring people traffic has become a key intelligence metric for retail, transportation, logistics and other industry verticals. Correlating real-time people patterns with other business metrics leads to powerful insights on sales conversion rate and optimized resource allocation and distribution. Join us for this exciting talk highlighting the deployment of a people counting solution at EclipseCON.
Learn how to combine the Eclipse open source stack with open hardware like the RaspberryPi to quickly develop, deploy and manage end-to-end people counting systems. The session introduces the Eclipse technologies that enabled this project and describes how they were integrated into a complete solution. Eclipse Kura provided the Java/OSGi–based M2M application framework for the edge gateways interfacing with the people counters and offered application portability and remote management. Eclipse BIRT supplied the business intelligence, delivering high impact data visualizations and powerful analytics to correlate people counter data with social media metrics and sentiment.
