  • 1. © 2009 IBM Corporation IBM is making an Internet of Things for Everyone John McNamara – Senior Inventor June 2014
  • 2. © 2009 IBM Corporation 2 IBM is making the Internet of Things for Everyone  What do I mean by that? – IBM is encouraging the 'democratising innovation' with its IoT technology – It is now incredibly easy to to start innovating, even for a novice. – and crucially it is incredibly engaging and even...fun!  How is that important? – By removing technology barriers we enable everyone to innovate  Why is this happening now? – Lots of reasons... Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM is making the Internet of Things for Everyone
  • 3. © 2009 IBM Corporation 3 Lots of important reasons...  In the 'old days'... – The power brokers in the I.T industry centred around the Managers and CEO's – Very top → down and hierarchical in terms of access to funds for innovation – Big barrier to innovation in terms of access to resources and technology  Today we see “The Rise of the Developer” (the technologist) – Recognition of their importance and influence in the I.T community – Internet investment → Leading to a peer funding model for innovation – Internet communications → No need for central workplace for collaboration – All of these things help lower the barrier to individual innovation...

  • 4. © 2009 IBM Corporation 4 The Biggie : Access to simple to use technology  Access to the technologies – to cloud based platforms/services – 'freemium' / drastically reduced cost (BlueMix) – to lightweight and free protocols (MQTT) – to simple and easy to use enabling technologies (Node-RED)  Collaboration with device manufacturers such as Texas Instruments – so BeagleBone / Sensortag work effortlessly with our IoT tech' – allowing the IoT 'things' to be wired up, monitored and controlled Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM is making the Internet of Things for Everyone
  • 5. © 2009 IBM Corporation 5 And by building simplicity into our technology  Ensuring that our technology is as simple as possible to use – But no simpler :) Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM is making the Internet of Things for Everyone From sketch Implementation To user
  • 6. © 2009 IBM Corporation 6 Letting 'Everyone' know about their new Internet of Things  Apparently the 'Democratisation of Innovation' begins at home – We wanted to put together an IoT 'package' we could take on the road • The idea being to let technologists play with our toys – Tested it with our own IBM Hackathon (Cluster Level – so a big Hackathon) • Robopocalypse • Zombiepocalypse – Aim was to see how technologists used a combination of free IBM IoT tech • Refine the package from the lessons learned • Then take the package on the road Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version Technologies used in The Great Cluster Code Off - IBM MessageSight – developer edition - MQTT - NodeRed - Any other freely available tech'
  • 7. © 2009 IBM Corporation 7 What was spawned from our Hackathon?  The top Zombiepocalypse app' – “Zombiepocalypse paintball mobile app” • Using MQTT, MessageSight, NodeRed and WAS Liberty Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version Now watch the film...
  • 8. © 2009 IBM Corporation 8 What was spawned from our Hackathon?  The top Robopocalypse entry – “The Mostly 'Armless Robot” • Using MQTT, MessageSight and NodeRed Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version
  • 9. © 2009 IBM Corporation 9 After some enhancements to our IoT package 1. AR Drones Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version
  • 10. © 2009 IBM Corporation 10 Enhancements to our IoT package 2. Makey-Makey Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version
  • 11. © 2009 IBM Corporation 11 Enhancements to our IoT package 3. Bananas Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version
  • 12. © 2009 IBM Corporation 12 Why bananas?  In order to impress upon the technologist community that our IoT technology is: – Simple – Versatile – Quick – Easy  We demonstrated that we could utlise – MQTT – NodeRed – IBM MessageSight  Along with some – Cool toys – Bananas  To create an accurate and workable IoT based Drone control system  Activated and controlled by something as trivial as an instrumented banana Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version
  • 13. © 2009 IBM Corporation 13 Did it work?  Yes Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version See the video  Apart from the fun factor – what impression did it make...
  • 14. © 2009 IBM Corporation 14 Did we see any 'Democratised Innovation'?  If you watch the video on the previous slide you will have seen this man Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version Stephan  Stephan wants to utlise this system to control multiple swarms of drones – To be used to monitor forest fires – And to provide intelligence on where to deploy resources most effectively  Within a couple of hours – Stephan successfully controlled two drones flying synchronously with our IoT technology – no bananas – he did also crash a third
  • 15. © 2009 IBM Corporation 15 Did we see any 'Democratised Innovation'?  For me though these pictures hold the most significance Source: If applicable, describe source origin IBM Presentation Template Full Version
