Presenters: Jan Newmarch, Director of Higher Education, Box Hill Institute
What you will learn:
- How the Raspberry Pi platform can be used in IoT
- How to integrate it with low power pans
Description: The Raspberry Pi single-board computer has enjoyed phenomenal success as a not-for-profit educational tool and is now forging its way into the burgeoning world of the Internet of Things, both as a learning tool and a low cost DIY alternative to big platforms. There are now several proprietary Raspberry Pi systems and some open ones, working in conjunction with low power PANs. IEEE802.15.4 covers the physical and media access layers, 6LoWPAN covers the networking layer using a variation on IPv6, while CoAP is (one of) the protocols of choice at the application layer. This presentation shows how to get these running on the raspberry Pi using the Openlabs 802.15.4 module.
