Building Wireless Sensor Networks, MQTT, RaspberryPi and Arduino

Devcon June Conference, Thursday, June 20, 2013, 17:30

In this talk, Zvi will share his experiences in developing an MQ Telemetry Transport protocol (MQTT-S) over Zigbee Gateway software in Erlang/OTP. MQTT-S is used as a publish/subscribe messaging protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSN), with the aim of extending the MQTT protocol beyond the reach of TCP/IP infrastructure for Sensor and Actuator solutions. This makes it a very efficient protocol for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things connectivity.

Talk objectives:

•    Introduce MQTT protocol, it's ecosystem and standardization efforts.

•     Give overview of MQTT-S - a version of MQTT specifically designed for sensors.

•    Show how to build wireless sensor nodes with Arduino and Zigbee.

•    Discuss design and implementation of MQTT-S over Zigbee gateway in Erlang/OTP.

•    Highlight how easy is to port Erlang code to small Linux machines like RaspberryPi and BeagleBoard.

Target audience: Erlang programmers developing and/or testing web services

Zvi came in touch with Erlang in 1998 and started using it professionally in 2007. He specialises in High Performance Distributed Systems in the Real-time Embedded with focus on the Internet, Mobile and Cloud domains. His recent venture is ZADATA - a marketplace and a platform for real-time Machine-generated data.
