Webinar & Twitter Chat: Connecting Light, The Ultimate XBee iDigi Project

As many of you know, Digi took part in the innovative art installation Connecting Light that took place on August 31 and September 1, along Hadrian’s Wall in the UK. Connecting Light, which has been called the longest art installation in the world was part of the London 2012 Festival, a 12-week cultural celebration for the London 2012 Olympics. The installation consisted of hundreds of large-scale, light-filled balloons transmitting colors from one-to-another, creating a communication network spanning Hadrian’s Wall.

On Thursday October 4, at 8:00am EST Rob Faludi and Jordan Husney will host a webinar explaining how Connecting Light came together, and how Digi International’s iDigi Device Cloud, along with over 400 programmable XBee radios and 20 ConnectPort X4 cellular gateways helped make it happen. While Rob and Jordan explain the technology behind Connecting Light, you have the opportunity to participate and ask your questions in real time on Twitter with the hashtag #DigiConnected.

Start your Thursday morning learning about how the technology used for Connecting Light, which recently won the M2M Best Practice Awards at this year’s M2M Summit in Dusseldorf, can be used for industry projects.

Date & Time: Thursday October 4, 8:00am EST

Presented By:

Rob Faludi, Collborative Stategy Leader

Jordan Husney, iDigi Product Manager

Key Topics:

  • An explanation of the Connecting Light project
  • An iDigi and XBee product description & how they were used in this project
  • A step-by-step explanation of how the application logic is distributed and how that relates to other, “real-life” applications, such as the way a vending machine or medical device system might architect their app across our systems.
