As M2M gateways and aggregator devices continue to expand the ever-widening array of sensors and sensor protocols they manage, the number of data events being generated is growing exponentially. Some events need to be acted upon locally; others need to be sent to the cloud for global analysis. Some events require immediate action; other events can wait for later processing. More importantly, the M2M ecosystem needs the ability to dynamically change the local analytics and business rules, depending on the global analytics in the cloud. Using a Raspberry Pi and a temperature monitor, this presentation will demonstrate how OSGi powers dynamic M2M event processing.
