The Internet of Things is starting to take hold and reshape the way we imagine data driven applications with technologies such as MQTT, Smart Watches, and embedded computers. While each of these technologies can be used to create powerful applications on their own, how can they be integrated with one another to deliver insights that were previously inaccessible? In this session I’ll take you on a road trip that shows how you can display and extract insights from your car and display them on a Samsung Gear 2, your desktop, and finally on an Android device in real time using BIRT.
MQTT is a messaging protocol designed so that it can be implemented on the smallest devices, so it is ideal for the Internet of Things. One reason that it is so simple is that it leaves complications such as fragmentation and error correction to the underlying transport, TCP/IP. However there are other transports which we would like MQTT to be able to take advantage of, because their overhead is lower, or they use less power, for instance. This session is about MQTT-SN, and the tools for using it in the Eclipse Paho and Mosquitto projects.
The IoT market is poised for exponential growth, but there are still lots of barriers that prevent building a real, open, Internet of Things.
