Java ME 8: Bringing Java to the Internet of Things

We are on the cusp of the 3rd IT revolution where embedded systems are dramatically expanding their reach, adding unprecedented processing capabilities and connectivity to create the Internet of Things (IoT). Java ME 8 defines a new Java standard (JSR 360 + 361) for a purpose-built embedded platform to meet the needs of the Internet of Things for robust, highly functional, flexible, cross-platform software intelligence. Java ME 8 is aligned with Java SE 8 and scales from very small microcontroller devices up to powerful embedded systems.

Pimp your Pi with Eclipse RCP for your Home TV (presented by Genuitec)

An Eclipse RCP UI pushed to a Raspberry Pi gives you an awesome platform for your home theater projects. We’ll walk through how you can create your own “apps” for your Pi leveraging the small open source PiPlug app simply from within Eclipse. Eclipse, PiPlug and your Raspberry Pi are the ideal way for you to tinker with graphical apps for your home TV.

PiPlug is available at:

Creating an Intranet of Things with Eclipse SmartHome

New IoT gadgets are hitting the market every single day. Since most of them only connect to their own proprietary backend, they usually do not interact with each other. Overarching automation logic is hardly possible in those setups - the Eclipse SmartHome project seeks to overcome the challenges of interoperability and introduces a highly flexible architecture perfectly tailored to the needs of developers.

Wiring the Internet of Things with Node-RED

Node-RED is a visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things. Built on top of node.js, it takes advantage of the huge node module ecosystem to provide a tool that is capable of integrating many different systems.

Its light-weight nature makes it ideal to run at the edge of the network, such as on the Raspberry Pi, and enabling wiring together streams of both physical and digital events.

This session will introduce Node-RED with a demo of its capabilities, before diving into why JavaScript and node.js were a natural fit for solving some of the challenges faced.

From Rats to Cows and Hearts to Homes, M2M stories and architecture patterns

The machine to machine world has come a long way over the last decade. Helped by improvements in technology, connectivity, power consumption and price, the types of solution that are feasible has changed dramatically. This presentation tells the story of some real world m2m projects that have come to life, ranging from rats to cows, hearts to homes and cars to tanks.

M2M, IoT, device management: one protocol to rule them all?

M2M is rapidly growing and since its early days different "standard" protocols have emerged (e.g. OMA-DM, TR-069, MQTT, ...) or are emerging (e.g. CoAP or Lightweight M2M).
Understanding which protocol to use for which application can be intimidating, therefore we propose to give an overview of these protocols to help you understand their goals and characteristics. We will give a status of the availaible open source implementations in the Eclipse M2M ecosystem, with projects such as Paho, Mihini and Ponte.

A guided tour of Eclipse IoT

Since the creation of the M2M Industry Working Group ca. EclipseCon Europe 2011 the number of M2M/IoT projects and the community around them, haven't stopped growing.

This talk will take you on an extensive tour of all the open-source projects that the Eclipse IoT community federates around communication protocols, developments tools, frameworks and solutions.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about these technologies, as well as how you can get involved and contribute.
