Preparing Google Cloud IoT Core to Receive Messages

In this blog we will connect the Mongoose OS based ESP8266 with Google Cloud IoT Core and Google Cloud Pub/Sub, which we will be using for it’s MQTT Broker capability. We will not cover the basics of handling and navigating in Google Cloud Console, if you are new to it, please do look at the learning … Read morePreparing Google Cloud IoT Core to Receive Messages

Mongoose a new way to program ESP8266

In previous blogs, I have used Arduine-IDE to develop code for the ESP8266. It was a nice and convenient way, suitable for me with a background in development. Recently I came across a new technology, that I wanted to give a try: Mongoose OS Similar to my previous setup, I will be using a NodeMCU … Read moreMongoose a new way to program ESP8266

Installing and running Eclipse Kura on a Raspberry Pi B (Model 1)

Now that I have a running Kapua instance, its time to look at the network edge to gateways and devices. Eclipse Kura is a Java/OSGi-based framework for IoT gateways. A gateway is a devices that is distributed at the network edges and communicates with sensor or steering devices using cables, Bluetooth or other private networks. Sins … Read moreInstalling and running Eclipse Kura on a Raspberry Pi B (Model 1)

Creating a standalone instance of Eclipse Kapua using Docker containers

Today I start with taking a deeper look at Eclipse Kapua. It is a modular IoT cloud platform to manage and integrate devices and their data. My goal for the next weeks will be to demonstrate a multi-tenant capable installation of Eclipse Kapua on OpenShift, connecting several IoT devices and gateways to it. As a … Read moreCreating a standalone instance of Eclipse Kapua using Docker containers
