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)
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
Currently I play with IoT devices and connected “things”, and as much they fascinate me, mostly they are quite locked and when the vendor loses interest, money or disappears from the market, these things mutate to ubiquitous threads and begin to scare me. Sure, most of the stuff is built on Linux, but passwords or … Read moreAn Internet of Threads or will there also be Something in Open Source?
A dear colleague of mine provided me with a Texas Instruments Sensortag Unfortunately this present was connected with the request to get it running with my Intel Edison and the Smart Gateway. This blog will be part one of my endeavor. Update the Intel Edison My Intel Edison still runs the old firmware, so the … Read moreIoT – Smart Gateway with Intel Edison & TI Sensortag – Part 1
In this blog I would like to demonstrate how easy it is to develop a mobile app with AngularJS and NodeJS. The goal is to develop the app locally and build an Android application with RHMAP later on. ‘RHMAP’ stands for ‘Red Hat Mobile Application Plattform‘. Maybe you know it as ‘FeedHenry’. What’s the target … Read moreRHMAP BPM-Mobile-App – IoT Demo
This blog will cover my first experiments with an Intel Edison, a small Computer-on-Module, which Intel was so kind to give to me! Thanks again for this guys! There are many websites explaining how to setup your development computer to work with an Intel Edison, like Intels own website. So I will assume you have followed … Read moreBuilding an IoT Sensor with Node-RED on Intel Edison
This is part 5 of my IoT series of blogs. So far we did look at the following topic Introduction into the planned scenario Building a Raspberry Pi based Smart Gateway ESP8266 and DHT22 based smart sensor Putting the Smart into the Smart IoT Device Setting up an “all in one” demo environment This post will … Read moreImplementation of SmartGateway for IoT Demo
If you have followed my earlier posts, then you know, that I’m in the process of building an IoT Demo, with a Raspberry Pi2 as the Smart Gateway. During this process, I had to re-install my Raspberry multiple times, but after the second time I got a bit tired of doing the same steps over … Read moreBuilding the IoT Smart Gateway with Docker, Raspberry Pi and JBoss for the “lazy” ones – Ansible rules!
This is part 4 in my IoT series of blogs. The first parts did cover the following topics: Introduction into the planned scenario Building a Raspberry Pi based Smart Gateway ESP8266 and DHT22 based smart sensor This blog will describe how to enable the Smart Gateway to handle, enhance and forward incoming messages. As for … Read morePutting the Smart into the Smart IoT Device
This is part 3 in my IoT series of blogs. The first parts did cover the following topics Introduction into the planned scenario Building a Rasperry Pi based Smart Gateway In this article I will describe how I build my first physical sensor, based on an ESP8266 microprocessor and a DHT22 digital temperature and humidity sensor. … Read moreESP8266 and DHT22 based smart sensor
