Webinar: 500 Sensors & Three Days of Data, The Data Sensing Lab at Google I/O

Posted on: No Comments

The webinar “500 Sensors & Three Days of Data: The Data Sensing Lab at Google I/O” discussed the 500 sensor-node network and the data the network collected at Google’s developer conference, Google I/O, as part of The Data Sensing Lab. The sensor data was collected by 500 motes with XBees, 20 ConnectPort Gateways and Device Cloud. The data can be accessed through the Google Cloud Platform. The platforms worked together seamlessly to collect more than 500,000 data points per hour for three days during Google I/O.

The webinar was hosted by three presenters who each played a role in the project:
Rob Faludi, Chief Innovator & Data Sensing Lab team member
Julie Steele, Content Editor & Data Sensing Lab team member
Michael Manoochehri, Developer Programs Engineer at Google

You can see the recording of the webinar below.

Google’s Amy and Kim Discuss The Data Sensing Lab

“We have an XBee radio on each of the shields and it’s communicating over a ZigBee protocol. This network was setup by Digi International…Each sensor mote is sending its readings every 20 seconds to the gateways which are going to Device Cloud by Etherios, and is then sent to The Google Cloud Platform

-Kim Cameron

In this presentation from Google I/O, Amy Unruh and Kim Cameron give an in-depth look into how data was collected from The Sensing Lab. Learn how the Google Cloud Platform team was able to collect, process, and transform all of the information collected by the Data Sensing Lab’s 500 sensor motes.

 

 

The Data Sensing Lab at Google I/O: A Look Into The Experience

Posted on: No Comments

The Data Sensing Lab is in full swing at Google I/O– 500 XBees are sending sensor data to Device Cloud by Etherios via a mesh network. Over the last couple of days, we’ve enjoyed meeting everyone at the conference and collecting environmental data that’s turned out to be very telling of the experiences attendees are sharing. Here’s a look at Google I/O and even a sneak peak of the data that’s traveling from the Device Cloud API to Google’s BigQuery.

Below you’ll see attendees and Googlers alike appreciating the awe and scale of the Data Sensing Lab. You’ll also see Michael Manoochehri, Developer Programs Engineer of Google, sharing the visualizations.

Digi Deploys 500-Node Internet of Things Network for the Data Sensing Lab at Google I/O

Posted on: No Comments

It’s an exciting week as we are taking part in deploying over 500 sensor motes at Google’s developer conference, Google I/O, May 15-17. The network will make up the Data Sensing Lab, a project that utilizes Digi’s XBee ZigBee modules and ConnectPort wireless gateways. The sensor data will be collected and managed by Device Cloud. The project demonstrates how real-time machine-to-machine data can provide insight into customer behaviors and preferences.

The senor network will provide more than 4,000 data streams running over Device Cloud with continuous updates on temperature, pressure, light, air quality, motion and noise levels in San Francisco’s Moscone Center during the conference. The Google Cloud Platform team will gather, transform, and analyze the information, then share heat maps and other data visualizations in collaboration with the Google Maps team.

“Google is getting a global view of their entire multi-million dollar event, as it plays out in real time. They’re learning where people are going and when, how loud the applause is for each presentation, where it’s figuratively hot and where it’s literally cool,” Rob said. “But they’re also learning how easy it is to integrate Device Cloud’s APIs with their own cloud-based business systems. Google and Digi collaborated to create a complete end-to-end solution in just a few weeks, one that’s ready to hand us 40 million fascinating data points.”

The Data Sensing Lab crew, Alasdair Allan of Babilim Light Industries, Kipp Bradford of Kippworks, Rob Faludi of Digi International, Michael Manoochehri, Amy Unruh and Kim Cameron of Google and Julie Steele of O’Reilly Media, created the project to collect data to answer questions about the physical world in a fun and awe-inspiring way.

For more information about the software involved in this project, attend the “Behind the Data Sensing Lab” session on May 16, 5:20 – 6 p.m. PDT.  You can find live updates from the conference on Digi’s Machine Talk blogFacebookTwitter and Google+ and updates from the Data Sensing Lab team on Google+ and Twitter.

Join Us: Live Panel with Device Security Experts

Posted on: No Comments

Are your devices secure? Join us on Tuesday, May 21 at 2:30pm CST for a live device security panel with guest security experts. After this panel, you won’t need to wonder– you’ll know if your devices are secure.

There are over 100,000 unsecured devices on the Internet that any hacker can find-and tamper with. Some of these devices even include critical systems ranging from traffic lights to fuel pumps to building heating and cooling systems to retail point-of-sale devices. Don’t be one of the 100,000, learn from a panel of respected experts– from Device Clouds to protocols, we’ll cover security tips and suggestions. We’ll also open up the floor so you can ask your questions.

We’ll announce the expert panel here next week!

Watch live here on the Digi blog (live video to be added on May 21), or participate through Google+: http://bit.ly/securitypanel

Digi Mass Transit Control System at Embedded World 2013

Posted on: No Comments

Control systems for a bus are simulated in this Digi mass transit demo using Intelligent System Framework-ready hardware from Portwell and Kontron based on the Intel® Atom™ processor and running the Android* OS.

One system displays the driver operator panel, and the second system provides passenger information such as bus stop locations, as well as static and video advertising sponsored by nearby businesses. A camera connected to the driver operator panel also provides a simulated view of the passenger area with recording options for additional passenger and personnel security purposes. The systems share data, such as current bus location, route and arrival information over the iDigi Device Cloud and show the delivery of mass transit passenger-oriented services via Intel mobile phones and tablets.
