The agenda is packed with great speakers covering a wide range of IoT topics, from Industry 4.0 and fog computing for devices at the edge, to smart homes and more! Eclipse IoT Day is a 1-day event organized by the Eclipse IoT Working Group, an Eclipse Foundation initiative.


Plan to arrive early to grab a your badge before grabbing a coffee and chatting with a few attendees!

Welcome session

Eclipse IoT for Industry 4.0

An industrial environment is a perfect example of variety of data in terms of structure, volume, frequency, format, sources. Collecting data from a manufacturing area in an efficient way means to have the capability to communicate with “things”, understand the content, process locally when time critical and stream the data to a storage where enterprise IT applications can transform data into information and consume it for prediction, analysis and fast decision taking.

In this talk we will present a solution deployed in a manufacturing environment using an end-to-end open source IoT integration framework (based on Eclipse IoT technologies and other open source projects), and taking into account the typical industrial constraints for protection and security. We will put a particular focus on how this has allowed us to interface with an existing IT landscape of corporate tools.

Speaker: Vito De Gaetano, Bosch

Pushing IoT Analytics to the Edge

As IoT Architectures mature and evolve the ability to both collect and analyze sensor data has become a mission critical. But forwarding all data to a central repository—be it on-premise or cloud-based—becomes more and more impractical as the number of sensors and the amount of data grow. Pushing data collection and analysis further to the edge is becoming a requirement for IoT deployments.

With most data platforms, it simply isn't practical, or even possible, to push collection AND analytics to the edge. In this talk I'll show how I've done exactly this with a combination of open source hardware—Pine64—and open source software—InfluxDB—to build a practical, efficient and scalable data collection and analysis gateway device for IoT deployments.

Speaker: David G. Simmons, InfluxData

Remote software updates for IoT devices with Eclipse hawkBit

In the past embedded software updates have often been based on custom software, but now several open source frameworks are emerging as community based software components to build configurable, scalable and robust update platforms.

This talk will show how to build a remote software update management platform to transparently manage an heterogeneous set of devices (embedded Linux and Android).

For the remote software update management platform the Eclipse hawkBit software will be presented, showing its architecture, security model and use cases.
For the IoT device hawkBit client two heterogeneous solutions will be presented: a SWUpdate based Linux client and an open source DDI service Android app. The SWUpdate Linux client will be configured in a two phase Android-style approach separating the installation of the update files in a single purpose recovery OS.

Speaker: Nicola La Gloria, Kynetics

Where Next for MQTT?

The OASIS standardization process for MQTT 5.0, the follow on to 3.1.1, is coming to an end. I will describe the improvements that have been made between these versions, illustrated with the implementations that already exist in the Eclipse Paho project.

I will show how you can experiment with MQTT 5.0 right now, and how it can be used in your IoT projects. I will also touch on the work we have done in Paho, and are considering in OASIS, to apply MQTT to non TCP transports, based on IBM's existing MQTT-SN specification.

Speaker: Ian Craggs, IBM

The Open IoT Stack: Architecture and Use Cases

Whether you are developing smart products, enabling new connected services, or instrumenting factory production lines you face the challenges of designing, building, and deploying an IoT solution.

This session will first summarize the leading reference architectures and blue prints for Industrial IoT and then, it will map those architectural components onto the activities of the Eclipse IoT community. The result is an Open, Integrated and Managed IoT Foundation where the ready-to-use Eclipse IoT projects can provide the building blocks necessary to dramatically accelerate the time to market of IoT projects as illustrated in the presented use cases.

Speaker: David Woodard, Eurotech

Full-Scale Edge Computing with Eclipse ioFog: A Case Study

Edge computing comes with unique challenges at scale. Beyond the proof-of-concept phase, it is important to address solution management, security, and data provenance.

This talk illustrates how these challenges are overcome through the use of Eclipse ioFog by walking through a real implementation with a customer.

Speakers: Kilton Hopkins & Farah Papaioannou, Edgeworx

Web of Things @ Siemens

Corporate Technology (CT), a central research department at Siemens, is highly engaged in W3C’s Web of Things (WoT) standardization activities. While Siemens CT sees a big potential in the WoT methodology, it is only of value for the whole company if the business units driving product development, marketing, and sales can be convinced of really applying WoT methodology.

This talk gives an overview of current Siemens WoT activities, our engagement in W3C and Eclipse, and our contributions to funded research projects.

Speaker: Christian Glomb, Siemens

Eclipse Cyclone DDS: Data Sharing in the IoT Age

Making the right data available at the right time, at the right place, securely, efficiently, whilst promoting interoperability, is a key need for virtually any IoT application. After all, IoT is about leveraging access data – that used to be unavailable – in order to improve the ability to react, manage, predict and preserve a cyber-physical system.

The Data Distribution Service (DDS) is 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.

In this presentation we will (1) introduce the Eclipse Cyclone DDS project, (2) provide a quick intro that will get you started with Cyclone DDS, (3) present a few Cyclone DDS use cases, and (4) share the Cyclone DDS development road-map.

When IoT Really Is a Challenge

Open source hardware, rapid prototyping, public code repositories and enthusiastic engineers are crucial for the evolution of the Internet of Things.

Challenges approached from a different perspective can bring innovative solutions that improve efficiency of industries and enhance our quality of life. The Eclipse Open IoT Challenge is an initiative that encourages this innovation, by looking for new ideas and concepts around the world.

I decided to take part in the competition just a few hours before the deadline. With little knowledge about electronics and hardware prototyping, I started the implementation of my project… This talk presents the IoT journey of someone who entered the Open IoT Challenge as a complete IoT “newbie”, and how open source and open standards helped me along the way—I won the contest!
