IoT+Analytics show cars & clouds

Some of the things I’ve collaborated to make:

  • “IoT Auto” 3D Printed advanced technology vehicle with Local Motors, Octoblu’s Meshblu, Link Motion instrument cluster & infotainment on NXP i.MX with ARM TrustZone, and IBM technologies including IoT Foundation, Bluemix, MobileFirst (Worklight), Streams, NodeRED, MQTT. Exhibited at IBM Insight `15 and SEMA `15.

  • UNLV Robotics DARPA DRC-HUBO robot driving Local Motors 3D printed car into IBM Insight `15 Expo. OK, I didn’t build that robot but helped these things come together and get UNLV Robotics the exposure they deserve🙂

  • aftermarket”car compute” on-ramp to IBM IoT + Bluemix cloud. Connects cars to our IBM cloud in seconds.
  • Continental’s prototype IoT+Big Data Connected Car cloud on Intel powered Softlayer cloud for V2V and “highly automated” driving.  Uses MQTT, Eclipse Paho, MessageSight (Intel Inside) IoT appliance, Streams, NodeRed and other components.  Here is German Chancellor Angela Merkel reviewing it.
  • Open IoT show car with Intel, IBM, Local Motors.  430hp crowdsourced open source car with MQTT, Intel Quark / Galileo, running Node-RED (Node.js for IoT) car controller & Intel Atom IVI system Automotive Grade Linux (Tizen IVI) and MobileFirst UX, connected to IBM Softlayer Connected Car cloud with IBM MessageSight, Big Data, Predictive Maintenance, Node-RED, MobileFirst Worklight.
  • Collaborated with Jaguar Land Rover developing LR4 and supercharged F-Type IoT show cars live demo’d at IBM Connect 2014, Tizen Dev Conf, IBM Innovate 2014.  Solution used MQTT, AGL Tizen IVI, MessageSight, Streams, Node-RED, Predictive Maintenance, MobileFirst, Softlayer cloud.
  • Led collaboration with QNX creating IoT car shown at IOD 2013, CES 2014, Pulse 2014.  Solution uses MQTT, IBM Big Data, Streams (CEP), Predictive Maintenance, Softlayer Cloud, MobileFirst, QNX, Texas Instruments, Jeep Renegade.
  • Raspberry Pi powered IoT show car w Local Motors, Citrix Octoblu, and Linux Foundation.  Planned 3D printed IoT enabled show car.
  • Drove creation and co-designed IBM IoT & Connected Car showcase on Softlayer cloud used for IBM’s demos, proof of concepts, hackathons and developer outreach.  Uses MQTT, Eclipse Paho, Bluemix (IBM’s Cloud Foundry), MobileFirst, Node-RED, MessageSight, Big Data, Streams, Predictive Maintenance, Softlayer cloud.

IoT, Analytics & Car Keynotes, Panels and Press

“Makers & Co-Creation” with AT&T, GE FirstBuild, Local Motors at AllSeen Alliance Summit

Here is our recent panel from the AllSeen Alliance Summit, like any great movie it becomes even more riveting in the 3rd act :-) http://youtu.be/VAM1iKpUD2U
We had lots of great discussion and activity at our collaboration project’s recent event.
Alex is AT&T’s global developer evangelist, running 30 events a year with thousands of developers and makers.   In fact today he is in Manila running one right now.
John is the head of connected devices for GE Appliances and connectivity maker at FirstBuild which does crowdsourced home appliances, hosts makerfaire, etc.

Jay is the founder of Local Motors and has a team of 130,000 people that collaborate on open hardware design of new cars, motorcycles, and other things that roll.  Like what I and AllSeen Alliance and Linux Foundation do for collaborative software development, Jay‘s community does for hardware.  They recently 3D printed a car.  Google says there were 31,400 news items about that.  http://www.cnet.com/news/local-motors-strati-is-the-worlds-first-3d-printed-car/

I’m also a fan of Tenaya Hurst of dog hunter / Linino.  She’s a mad maker of wearables, quite awesome.  She is who you hear asking this panel about the importance of failure.  She even makes her own music videos🙂

AllSeen Alliance: THIS is what collaboration looks like

AllSeen Alliance Summit was a lot of fun.  Expected 80 people but instead had 224 people from 100 companies and 19 countries come to collaborate. This gives you an idea of what collaboration looks like:

AllSeen Alliance Summit 2014

Want to know how things work?  We collaborate.  Community is completely open and transparent.  We’re all about collaborating, adopting the best standards and creating open source IoT software people can just take and use to create things.  Don’t even have to be a member.

IoT MQTT handy links

here is some info I gave an automaker tonight, thought it might help others:

A little bit of Spring and MQTT

thoughts on using Spring and MQTT from one of my favorite people. This is the best way to MQTT enable your Java app servers, though obviously you can also use JMS if your MQTT broker (for example MessageSight) supports that too.  But if your java app servers are in one location and your MQTT broker is in another, i.e. cloud then this is the way.

The lost outpost

I’ve been involved with Spring (the Java framework, not the season…) for a couple of years now – since I joined VMware in 2012 through the former SpringSource organisation in the UK – and I’ve remained “involved” with it through my transition to Pivotal and the framework’s evolution into Spring 4 / Spring.IO under Pivotal’s stewardship.

To be clear, although I’ve been a “Java guy” / hacker through my time at IBM, I have never been a hardcore JEE coder, and my knowledge of Spring itself has always been limited. My good buddy Josh (MISTER Spring, no less) has done his best to encourage me, I briefly played with Spring Shell last year with @pidster, and the brilliant work done by the Spring Boot guys has been helpful in making me look at Spring again (I spoke about Boot – very briefly, as a newcomer to it –…
