Software, Networking and IoT Create “Best of All Worlds” at Intel Developer Forum 2016
If you were among the 6,000+ participants at IDF16, you could make music with Shapesong Music VR, create photo booths with Intel® Arduino 101* or use Intel® Software to build a powerful IoT-based automobile infrastructure.
New technologies like the Intel® Joule™ Module, autonomous cars with IoT and virtual reality adapted for real world use demonstrate how developers are springboarding into the digital future by employing the best of all worlds in our solutions.
Here’s a roundup of the activities, announcements and key information from the event:
A Game Changer for IoT: The Intel® Joule™ Module
The Intel® Joule™ Module allows developers to explore high-end computing in a tiny energy-efficient form factor. Featuring a complete suite of software, tools, and preloaded Linux* packages, this powerful system on module (SoM) was designed to help inventors and IoT developers create more, faster. With Intel® Joule™ Module, developers can contribute to a new generation of robots, drones, and IoT devices that are equipped with Intel® HD Graphics, 3D modeling, object recognition, and interactive capabilities.
If you need a powerful IoT platform look to the Intel® IoT Developer Kit for the Intel® Joule™ Module. Loaded with technology found in regular PCs, the development board features a 64-bit quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor, 4K graphics, 802.11ac connectivity, and DDR4 memory.
The Road Ahead with Autonomous Driving
A key to the vision mapped out by Doug Davis, Diane Bryant and Doug Fisher for autonomous driving is its reliance on IoT architecture. Intel® IoT is uniquely positioned to deliver a broad set of technologies that are powering self-driving and awareness factors in vehicles.
On display in the Maker Space was TransitIQ by Team Whirlwind, an entry into the Intel® Ultimate Coder Challenge for IoT focused on low-cost automotive automation. They demonstrated a means to identify safe drivers so that we can adjust our own driving styles, all powered by Intel® IoT Technology. This demo by Team Whirlwind was one example of IoT technology playing a role in autonomous driving at IDF16.
Merging Reality with Project Alloy
There was more to Project Alloy than meets the eye. This all-in-one Virtual Reality platform is built with Intel® RealSense™ Technology and is wireless, allowing a full range of motion with six degrees of freedom across a large space.
Key to Project Alloy was notion of not just VR but merged reality, where VR is interspersed into our lives. This type of merged reality is what makes a project like Helios possible. Using VR, Helios expands accessibility to visually impaired individuals where normal sight is insufficient.
Ending Online Harassment
One of the largest panel discussions was #HackHarassment. Online harassment has become a nasty problem with real-life repercussions. As part of IDF the developer community discussed the problem in order to identify solutions that reduce different forms of online harassment.
An important goal of the panel discussion was to increase awareness of harassment in general. With so many developers in the audience, advancing technology to develop solutions for ending online harassment was on everyone’s mind.
Games, VR and More Showcased by Intel® Software Innovators
This year’s Maker Space featured the work of many Intel® Software Innovators. Two important projects focused on human disabilities. Wheelie a hands free robotic wheelchair controlled with facial gestures and Helios which employs Intel® RealSense™ Technology to provide a series of accessibility features for visually impaired individuals encompassed how technology can support our daily lives.
Games were a focus of the Intel® Software Innovators as well. Leave the Nest a first-person virtual flying game had visitors trying to fly by flapping their arms and Vapor Riders ’99 a VR Game presents new methods of locomotion within games employing total body movement to control the character.
A cool experience was 7VR Wonders of Ancient World, a recreation of the 7 Ancient Wonders into a breathtaking high-resolution Virtual Reality tour. Attendees were shown Developer Mesh, a tool for supporting the sharing of innovative work by developers.
Intel® IoT Developer Program Demonstrations at IDF16
The future possibilities of Intel® IoT Gateway devices for automation, networking and cloud purposes is emerging within the projects presented at IDF16. Using the Intel® IoT Developer Kit in conjunction with an Intel® Gateway provided the flexible platform necessary to automate buildings, control vending machines and air conditioning systems. Several autonomous cars were also on display that leveraged the cloud through an IoT infrastructure to make operation safer and easier.
See our showcase of innovative IoT technology use with the following projects:
Key Intel® Software Developer Program IoT Projects at IDF16
With use of an Intel® IoT Gateway and edge devices, this connected transportation rapid path to product edge IoT solution monitors the status of a refrigerated trailer containing perishables and sends updates to the cloud.
This smart home path to product IoT solution used an Intel® IoT Gateway and IBM* Bluemix* cloud services to showcase commercial and consumer product possibilities. This solution monitors the status of a home’s front door and garage door for increased security. With the use of a gateway and cloud services, the ability to automate a home becomes much easier.
Using the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, industrial sensors, Intel® IoT Gateway and Microsoft* Azure* cloud services this solution monitors the inventory, product sales, and maintenance of a vending machine.
Intel® Commercial IoT Featuring Smart HVAC Control
Through monitoring temperature, light and loudness a smart air conditioning control is possible to automatically control temperature but also detect indications of failure.
Intelligent Infrastructure for Autonomous Cars
An intelligent infrastructure for autonomous cars, using cloud data analytics, leverages an Intel® IoT Gateway and an Intel® IoT Developer Kit. Microsoft* Azure* cloud services processes data to avoid accidents based on other cars on the street and their speed. Cameras mounted on poles are used at intersections and sensors connected to Intel® IoT Gateways collect contextual information.
An Epic Tweet Battle
Built on Intel® IoT Technology, the Tweet Battle (#IoTBotBattle) cart drew crowds and was a hit! As participants tweeted commands, the Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots would leap into action, pounding out an eventual winner. Sparks and bubbles were flying!
To An Epic Battle-Bot War
Octoblu* used Code-Free IoT to demonstrate how easy it is to rapidly prototype projects using mini battle-bots controlled by Intel® Edison boards. Fierce battles with cute robots ruled the day.
Throughout the three days of the show, more than 6,000 developers experienced software innovation that is driving technology forward. A huge push was merged reality– where reality is augmented with virtual reality, all powered with Intel® RealSense™ Technology. The power to innovate with the quad-core Intel® Joule™ Module opens the doors for developers with compute-intensive IoT projects.
By using Intel® Software, networking and IoT, developers are integrating the “best of all worlds” into their solutions. Whether you want to automate a building, make robots battle, or create the next hit game– the developer experiences at IDF16 are shaping the future of IoT and other software innovations.
