Using Micropython to develop an IoT multimode sensor platform with an Augmented Reality UI
Who is this for
Anyone with a curious mind and interested in how to marry the physical world and IoT with the virtual. This talk is pitched at intermediate, but for beginners extensive documentation and a github repo is available to read and learn from.
What is it about
The story of a project at Samsung to capture data for the purpose of using in AI projects, which then became an OS platform with innovative ideas more important that the original concept. A multimode sensor platform using Augmented Reality for visualization.
Will I See The Real Prototype
Yes there will be a demonstration of the prototype and this will be used as part of the talk to explain the concepts.
What Technologies Will It Cover
What Will I Learn
Hopefully you will learn an introduction to IoT concepts to developers who are interested in this tech, but we will use micropython for embedded systems and show how to used. You will see in this talk: 1. How to use a tiny microcontroller with real sensors using micropython. 2. How to connect 'things' to the platform. 3. A micro web server to serve content. 4. The web side, using web technologies like A-Frame, AR.js for the purpose of having AR capabilities.
This talk will cover going from the small embedded world of IoT and sensors using micropython. Some time will be given to go over the general micro server. Then the last part of the talk will go over the concepts of Augmented Reality and using a mobile browser to view data from the sensors.
The main github repo for the project is here. It's open source and still changing. Be sure to keep track on it! :-)
