Just like last year, IncQuery Labs is sponsoring the IoT theme day of EclipseCon Europe 2017.
Besides that István Ráth, managing director is going to give a lightning talk entitled “Easier Smart Home development with simulators and rule engines”. IoT and Smart Home are hot topics today, and their popularity has spawned a lot of nice frameworks for developing applications, such as Eclipse Smart Home. However, real smart homes tend to be complex systems that pose hardware-software and systems integration challenges, which can provide a lot of headache to software developers lacking significant hardware experience. Simulators are one way out of this, because they can replace actual hardware, and come with advanced visualization and even interaction capabilities that make developing, debugging, and even demoing your smart home application a lot smoother.
In this talk, he showcases an open source smart home demonstrator system built only with open source components, many from the Eclipse IoT ecosystem:
We are proud of being part of this initiative and can’t wait to be there and discuss about Eclipse’s role in IoT.
