Intel’s Internet of Things Group (IoTG) demonstrated embedded technologies serving a wide array of industry verticals—from smart transportation and smart factories, to the healthcare sector and beyond at Embedded World 2016.
Attendees of the annual Nuremberg, Germany event engaged with Intel IoT products and solutions while learning how IoT can improve real-time decision making, boost revenues, and lower costs. From the Linux Foundation’s collaborative Zephyr Project to the Intel IoT Commercial Developer Platform, here are some of our favorite solutions from the event.
The open source Zephyr Project is a collaborative IoT project among the Linux Foundation and Intel companies Altera and Wind River. The open source project enables a scalable, real-time operating system that supports multiple architectures. Learn more.
Things to Cloud: The Wind River Rocket Demo
Wind River’s Things to Cloud demo featured Wind River Rocket, a tiny-footprint, cloud-connected operating system for microcontrollers (MCUs). It directly connects to Wind River Helix App Cloud, a cloud-based development environment for building IoT applications. The demo showcased the development, debugging, and deployment of a Rocket-based agriculture application. Learn more.
Adlink Smart Factory
The Adlink Smart Factory demo utilized the Adlink IoT Gateway, an EtherCAT solution, a smart camera, USB DAQ with Microsoft Windows 10 IoT OS, and the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform. It included features to monitor operating conditions of equipment in the production line and production performance in real-time. It also displayed a database of alarm tags from equipment that was set up for equipment failure analysis. Learn more about Adlink factory automation.
Wind River’s Helix End-to-End Platform Demo
This demo showed how developers and device manufacturers can use Wind River Helix to create safe, secure, and reliable intelligent systems that connect through IoT. It showed how to move system data from secure and managed devices at the edge, through the gateway, across the critical network infrastructure, and to a cloud. Watch a video of the demo from the show floor.
Path-to-Product Transportation Demo
To demonstrate a rapid path-to-product edge IoT solution for transportation, a proof of concept was created using the Grove IoT Commercial Developer Kit, and scaled as an industrial solution using an Intel IoT Gateway, industrial sensors, and Wind River Linux 7 OS. The gateway gathered data from a temperature and magnetic sensor for edge data analytics and monitoring. Learn more about the IoT Commercial Developer Kit.
Intel Commercial IoT Developer Workshop
The Intel IoT Developer Program for commercial solutions provides a fast, flexible, and scalable path for IoT solutions. It features a comprehensive set of resources, developer kits, tools, knowledge, and technical support for professionals to rapidly prototype, test, and deploy commercial IoT solutions. Based on the Intel IoT Platform, this demo included a temperature-controlled environment and included three edge devices that monitored temperature, light, and loudness. The sensors provided continuous streaming data to the Intel IoT Gateway, including indications of failures. Learn more about the Intel IoT Developer program.
Intel’s Enhanced Privacy ID (EPID) technology provides an “on-ramp” designed to help devices securely connect in alignment with the Intel IoT Platform. Intel’s EPID hardware-enforced integrity provides fixed device identity in a manner that is compatible with existing ISO and TCG standards, and helps protect privacy with sophisticated anonymity technology. Extending use of Intel EPID across the industry will help make IoT solutions more secure regardless of vendor choice. Watch a video of the demo from the show floor.
SBS End-to-End Solution Based on Intel Quark
The SRC-0800-4C smart gateway-based IoT energy efficiency management solution demo simulated the main energy equipment by way of multi-sectional LED lights. It collected meter data and status info from voltage sensors, current sensors, temperature and humidity sensors, and energy consumption via Modbus. When using 2G, 3G, or 4G networks, the system realizes real-time data upload to a cloud-based energy efficiency management platform. This enables real-time monitoring of power consumption data and operation status of each device for energy efficiency and emission reductions. Learn more about SRC-0800-4C.
Software Development for Microcontrollers with Intel System Studio
An example featuring Intel System Studio, this demo showed microcontrollers being used to develop and debug firmware on an Intel Quark D2000 MCU-based device. It demonstrated an IoT-connected device being used to record transportation events including monitoring shock sensitive containers. Watch a video of the demo from the show floor.
ParceLive Product Tracking
ParceLive’s credit card-size shipment tracking module enables global shipment tracking using cellular connectivity, combined with sensors monitoring location, pressure, temperature, and humidity. The solution utilizes Intel EPID security features. Watch a video of the demo from the show floor.
