Blog Post – A Pico Based Platform for Esproto Sensors http://www.windley.com/archives/2016/05/a_pico-based_platform_for_esproto_sensors.shtml

Demo for ESProto

  • Spimes
    • tracking things through space and time
    • Bruce Sterling
  • Using picos for collections of things
    • persistent compute object
    • online, event-based,
  • Advantages
    • things don’t need smarts, or as much
    • things can be low power (not always on)
    • loosely coupled
    • Each device and each collection get own identity
      • persistent data
      • custom programming
      • API
  • Wovyn sensors
    • Wifi
    • ESP8266
    • multiple configurations
    • this is a MSA (temperature, pressure, humidity)
    • POSTs to a customizable URL
  • Wovyn and picos are a great combination
    • Picos provide an always on, online persona for the device
    • Picos can be used for collections of devices
    • Each pico can have a unique URL for the sensor to POST to
  • Building a spime platform
    • Not just for Wovyn, generalizable to any devices
    • Based on ideas from Fuse Connected Car platform
    • pico prototypes
  • Device rules
    • router - changes transducer data POST to meaningful events
      • new_temperature_reading, new_pressure_reading, etc.
    • check_battery
      • battery_level_low
    • device - check thresholds for violations
    • device - manage thresholds
    • device - route violations to all collections
  • Collection rules
    • log violations
  • Advantages
    • Scales
    • Easy to set up
    • Collections can have custom behavior
