If you’re going to the IoT Evolution Expo next week in Fort Lauderdale, come see us at Booth 1811!
The Azul Systems team and I will be sharing some interesting demos of Java at work including a remote-controlled robot vehicle and “Industrial IoT (IIoT) in a Box”. We’ll also showcase how Zulu Embedded can enable embedded and IoT developers with open source Java on the Intel Edison, Galileo and Minnow Board Max.
IoT Evolution Expo, held January 26 – 28, is one of the largest IoT events in the U.S. The show is focused on technologies that can be utilized to significantly improve business processes, minimize risk, spur innovation, and drive revenue. Java enables IoT developers to abstract complex layers and reuse off-the-shelf building blocks that implement protocol stacks, data encryption, or provide connectivity to cloud services. With Zulu Embedded, Java developers can leverage existing Java skills to develop applications for embedded and IoT, minimizing overall development efforts and drastically improving time to market.
At IoT Evolution Expo, Azul will be demonstrating how Java developers can build real-life IoT applications:
1. Zulu Embedded on Intel Edison, Galileo, and Minnow Board Max
With the growth of the Internet of Things, developers are more and more confronted with a multitude of edge devices or gateways, presenting a wide variety of operating system, communications technologies, or other proprietary characteristics. With Zulu Embedded, Azul offers an abstraction from the underlying device characteristics while offering standard Java SE APIs, running on all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core, Yocto Linux, and many others.
2. Remote-Controlled Robot Vehicle
Developers can now build applications that can physically communicate and control I/Os using Java on Microsoft Windows. Developers prefer to have many development and deployment choices, and now they can choose Java on Windows as one of the options for building premier IoT and embedded solutions. Things that were considered only possible by programming with Assembly or C/C++ on embedded devices are now possible with Java.
3. Industrial IoT (IIoT) in a Box
Azul and Object Computing (OCI) have partnered to showcase a use case for industrial IoT where data from edge devices are moved and analyzed in near-realtime, all using technologies based on open source and Java. The demo includes Zulu Embedded, various physical sensors, MQTT messaging, Pronghorn, Netty, and Web UI running on the Intel Edison.
Come see Zulu Embedded, a remote controlled robot vehicle, and IIoT in a Box in action at the IoT Evolution Expo in Booth 1811 on Jan 26-28, 2016!
