    • 1. Internet of Things Aiko Gateway and Nodes OpenWRT plus Arduinos Andy Gelme @geekscape UrbanCamp Melbourne Sunday 2009-09-13 http://geekscape.org
    • 2. (join-in) • Please ask lots of questions ! • Comments, suggestions, feedback welcome ! • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 3. (what?) • Distributed network of connected devices • Various domains ... • Building (home) automation • Vehicle embedded computers • Wearable computers • Ambient / Ubiquitous computing • Augmented Reality • Becoming cheaper and easier to network anything ! • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 4. (for-example) • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 5. (live-web-site) • https://watchmything.com/sites/11 (eleven) • https://watchmything.com/groups/sams-distributed-devices • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 6. (+ openwrt arduino) • ASUS router with firmware replaced by OpenWRT • Running AikoGateway server (written in Lua) • Arduino embedded microprocessor • Running AikoNode client (written in C / C++) • Option: ZigBee mesh networking • Option: 3G USB adapter • Option: Battery powered (100% wireless) • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 7. (conceptual-diagram) Any web-site, e.g http://watchmything.com ADSL, Cable or 3G Multiple users OpenWRT Multiple gateways Multiple sites AikoGateway AikoGateway May include Arduino Ethernet WiFi ZigBee mesh Arduino Arduino Arduino AikoNode AikoNode AikoNode • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 8. (openwrt) • Turns an inexpensive router into a super-router • Supports a wide range of routers • We prefer ASUS WL-500G ($50 or less) • Linux kernel, busybox, web server (Lua / LuCI), ... • Very easy to install (ask @samotage) and customize • Large, active development community • http://openwrt.org • AikoNode ... http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 9. (arduino) • Inexpensive and simple embedded computing • Write code using C / C++ with a simple IDE • 5 VDC: 13 digital I/O and 6 analog inputs • Many different form factors • Lots of available “shields” (daughter boards) • Large, active development community • http://arduino.cc • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 10. (arduino) • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 11. (aikoNode) • Modular framework for event-driven device handlers • Simple way to create more complex Arduino sketches • Includes a simple communication mechanism ... • Based on S-Expressions (Lisp / Scheme) • (node name timestamp (stream value unit)) • Abstraction layer on top of different communications • Multiple AikoNodes can interact with AikoGateway • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 12. (aikoGateway) • Server (router) for event-driven communications • Written in Lua for specifically for OpenWRT • Also runs on Linux, Mac OS X and other stuff • Handles interactions between multiple AikoNodes and web-sites, such as http://watchmything.com • Low barrier to entry for anyone wishing to hack • Doesn’t require a GCC cross-compiler tool-chain • Edit on-the-fly and restart the process ... easy ! • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 13. (openwrt-ate-my-arduino) • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 14. (future ?) • Release AikoGateway code (next week) • Support all Arduino communications options ... • Ethernet, WiFi, ZigBee mesh, USB port • Built-in web server extensions ... • Manage and configure AikoNodes • Home automation user interface • No single-point-of-failure ... • Multiple, collaborating AikoGateways • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 15. (d.i.y) • Looking for people interested in ... • Want to build your own AikoGateway in a weekend ? • Roughly $50 ASUS router + $60 Arduino and parts • Melbourne HackerSpaces weekend session • Designed to be simple and easy • Mid-October ? • Contact andyg@geekscape.org or DM @geekscape • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
    • 16. (thanks) • Heavy lifting ... • Pete Yandell @notahat (AikoNode) • Luke Weston @lukeweston (Pebble shield design) • Sam Sabey @samotage (OpenWRT hacking) • Big round of applause for @benbalbo, @kathyreid and @kattekrab for organizing yet another awesome UrbanCamp ! • http://github.com/geekscape/Aiko
