Paul Hopton APIs for the physical world @HoptonPaul @relayr_cloud http://relayr.io
Starter kit for the Internet of Things designed for App Developers
Electronic Frontiers Sensors Everywhere
Free standing / embedded sensors Battery Powered Run on unreliable networks Be mobile Be small Be secure
when you come from software Hardware is Hard
Hardware Iterations are very slow “Deployment” of a PCB design takes 2-3 weeks Component availability is often uncertain Pricing is based on volume
Firmware Tooling is expensive, proprietary, primitive There is no Filesystem Delivery of new releases is difficult / impossible Testing has to happen in-device
What about …?
Ubiquitous WiFi? Chips remain comparatively expensive Power consumption isn’t low enough SSL Support is a rarity Wearables and automotive aren’t in your WiFi range
MQTT Lightweight messaging protocol Low bandwidth == Low power Publish / Subscribe security through SSL
Publish Subscribe Device API mqtt.relayr.io/v1/wb123/sens456/data (p) mqtt.relayr.io/v1/wb123/sens456/cmd (s) mqtt.relayr.io/v1/wb123/sens456/config (s) !RESTful
What we do on the Platform Routing Conditional logic (filtering) Stateful rules engine Autonomous event handling
Working with the data app APIs RESTful API for discovering device state Realtime feeds for “noisy sensors” Notifications for slow feeds Device description lookups (apicommons)
Hardware is not the new Software The Internet of Things isn’t here yet.
