Workshop: µPNP - Plug-and-play integration of IoT peripherals
13/05/2015 14:00 to 13/05/2015 20:00
iMinds Distrinet Research Group
Plug-and-play integration of IoT peripherals at near-zero cost.
This session will present contemporary solutions for IoT programming and enables you to experiment with microPlug-and-Play (microPnP), a hardware/software prototype for low-cost and dynamic integration of IoT peripherals.
This prototype was motivated by the current complexity and cost to configure and extend state-of-the-art IoT solutions; instead of dedicated IoT hardware and software (which is difficult to configure and extend), IoT application developers demand an extensible IoT platform with plug-and-play capabilities so that they themselves do no longer have to develop, install, and configure driver software. Remember PC peripherals before USB enabled plug-and-play peripheral integration; microPnP achieves USB capabilities, but at near-zero energy and memory overhead.
microPnP enables low-cost identification of IoT peripherals, automatic deployment and configuration of peripheral driver code, and seamless discovery and use of new peripherals throughout distributed IoT infrastructure.
Evaluation shows that PnP has a minimal memory footprint, reduces development effort and provides true plug-and-play integration at orders of magnitude less energy than USB.

Latest trends in IoT programming, configuration & deployment
In this presentation, Danny will sketch a comprehensive overview of contemporary IoT programming; he will present:
- smart mesh networking, i.e. reliable, resilient and scalable IoT network technology based on the Time Synchronized Mesh Protocol (TSMP);
- the microPnP hardware/software solution for low-cost driver programming, discovery and configuration;
- web-based IoT application programming and configuration.

15:30 - 16:00
Coffee break & live demonstration of microPnP capabilities
16:00 - 18:30
During this practical (hands-on) session, participants will:
- program an integrated IoT solution: e.g. for power monitoring ("smart metering"), presence detection/collision avoidance ("smart factory"), electronic lock ("smart building");
- deploy these IoT devices and configure them online;
- build an online IoT application, integrating live data streams from all available sensors/actuators.
Networking with drinks & plug-fest
