FOSS Platform for Cloud Based IoT Solutions

Eclipse-IOT FOSS Platform for Cloud IoT

The Internet of things (IoT) is expected to connect billions of devices. The demand for an open IoT platform technology is increasing to enable and accelerate the development of cross-domain/cross-vendor use cases and face the accompanying challenges like connectivity with a wide range of heterogeneous protocols and large scale messaging. Eclipse IoT on top of today's cloud technology like Kubernetes is a promising software stack for this goal. However, it will only be successful if it is widely adopted. This talk describes the status quo and gives an outlook for future development.

It is expected that in the next years billions of devices will be connected to the internet of things (IoT). Many of them will interact with cloud-based solutions to provide additional services on the devices or in the web. To bring IoT to the next level technologies for supporting cross-domain/cross-vendor solutions are needed. There is already a lot FOSS available to provide a technological base for building IoT solutions (e.g. Kubernetes). However, on top of it, software is needed for the connectivity challenges, support of domain-specific protocols, large scale messaging and device management and integration with existing infrastructure. Eclipse IoT aims to address these needs and provide an FOSS IoT framework that makes IoT development fast and simple. In the last year Eclipse IoT has made a lot of progress and the underlying environment in cloud technology has seen a lot of changes. In addition, upcoming challenges like automated driving and connected vehicles have resulted in new projects for better support for the automotive domain. This talk gives you an overview of major Eclipse IoT projects and illustrates its capabilities with a short demo.
