The Data Sensing Lab: Recap and Visualizations

Posted on: No Comments

Last week, we took part in the Data Sensing Lab at O’Reilly Strata Conference. We even hung out with the Data Sensing Lab team live from Santa Clara where the conference hall had been equipped with XBees and a wireless sensor network.

Here’s where you can find more information and updates from the Sense Lab team:

Inside the Data Sensing Lab Live from O’Reilly Strata Conference

Posted on: No Comments

Update: Recorded Hangout Now Available (below)

Live from O’Reilly’s Strata Conference in Santa Clara discussing the Data Sensing Lab with the team behind the project: Rob Faludi of Digi International, Julie Steel of O’Reilly Media and Alasdair Allan and Kipp Bradford, the authors of the new book, Distributed Network Data.

 

At O’Reilly’s Strata Conference last year, Digi International took part in instrumenting the entire conference with sensors and a mesh network to show real-time visualizations of the conference environment. We assembled a network of XBees to carry data gathered on the Arduino platform to the Internet via a ConnectPort X2e running the XBee Internet Gateway. The XIG automatically posted data to the iDigi Device Cloud, which pushed it to Amazon Web Services to a team of visualization experts. This year, we’re back at it with more sensors, more visualizations and new features. While this display is certainly interesting for attendees, we want to share the experience with those of you who cannot join us in Santa Clara for the actual event. That’s why we’ll be hosting an inside look, a Google+ Hangout On Air, live from this year’s Data Sensing Lab at O’Reilly’s Strata Conference.

Sensors are the future of distributed data. General-purpose computing is dissipating out into the environment and becoming increasingly invisible and embedded into our lives. We will soon begin to move in a sea of data, our movements tracked and our environments measured and adjusted to our preferences, without need for direct intervention.

Sound interesting? Join us on Wednesday, February 27 for a live Google+ Hangout On Air to get a inside look at all of the components of the Data Sensing Lab. See how it works from the people who created it– from software to data analysis and visualization. Also, learn about how you can build your own sensor network to collect, analyze and visualize real-time data about your environment.

You’ll hear from Alasdair Allan of Babilim Light Industries, Rob Faludi of Digi International, Kipp Bradford of Kippworks, Julie Steele of O’Reilly Media, Kim Rees and Andrew Winterman of Periscopic, the people behind the Data Sensing Lab.

Here’s everything you need to know to join us:

“By instrumenting the conference environment with basic off-the-shelf sensors and mesh networking, we will observe and report on the conference, and generate interesting sociological data from the distributed sensor network.

This data will then be analyzed in real time at Strata, with the results presented in the keynote sessions. From hardware and software, to data analysis and visualization the project will give the attendees a taste of their lives in a more measured and quantified world.”

What is Data Week

NYC Data Week celebrates and explores the people, industries, and organizations using data to fuel innovation in New York City. Spanning five days, Data Week events include a Startup Showcase with Fred Wilson and Tim O’Reilly, Ignite NYC @Strata, a hackathon, numerous meetups, and more.
