About us Hardware -‐ Flyport system on module So6ware -‐ openPicus framework and IDE Services -‐ Webserver, email, TCP, UDP and more Flyport and the Internet of Things Flyport and the Smart Home Community: success stories A company without doors What’s next Q&AopenPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
About us openPicus was born in March 2010 in Rome Founders: Claudio Carnevali and Gabriele Allegria I started in 2001 a company that designes and manufactures Bluetooth modules for B2B market Gabriele started in 2003 a company that installs and customize high level home automaUon and mulUmedia. We started openPicus because was missing a low cost, easy to use for an hobbyist or a company, pla:orm to Connect things to the Internet. We have complementary experUse: I’m more involved on hardware and industrial design, Gabriele is the So6ware specialist. We decided that all our products must be manufactured in Italy respecUng labor and environment laws. openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
About us The ﬁrst sketch of module openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
So6ware The core of our technology is the openPicus framework, which enables embedded devices to connect to the Internet, easily. The openPicus framework, based on freeRTOS, manages the complexity of the TCP/IP stack and the user applicaUon developed using the free IDE Why not using Linux? Hardware resources, cost and power consumpUon. A simple 16 bits processor is much more eﬃcient for our target applicaUons. openPicus Free IDE reduces development Jme from 4-‐6 months to few weeks. Zero investment on tools: each Flyport module has a serial bootloader onboard. openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
Services Flyport modules run even contemporaneosly the following Internet services: Best in Class Customizable webserver e-mail client TCP client/server UDP client/server FTP client NEW: Firmware upgrade over Internet!openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
Flyport and IoT Libraries are available for most of the Cloud services for the IoT: New libraries are coming also for EVRYTHNG and other IoT service providers. Just add the library to your project, compile and go! Enough processing power, ﬂexible pinout, low power modes and embedded connecUvity make Flyport one of the best modules for the rapid development of IoT applicaUons. openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
Flyport and Smart Home We just joined the EnOcean alliance. EnOcean provides Energy harvesUng, wireless, based home automaUon soluUons such as: Bameryless pushbumons Solar powered sensors PelUer cells powered valves Actuators like Relays and more EnOcean is the real “last mile” for the DIY home automaUon. In 2020 20 billions devices will be connected to the Internet: we hope that most of them will be powered by energy harvesUng. openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
Flyport and Smart Home The EnOcean Nest expansion board for Flyport will open the doors of the “democraUc domoUc” “DemocraUc DomoUc” is our vision of the Smart Home: controlled over Internet, low cost, DIY and openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio hackable!
Community: success cases The ﬁrst web controlled interface for LEGO NXT robots: crowdfunded with 6k€ and in mass producUon from July An open Geiger counter to realize an indipendent worldwide network of the radiacUvity A Music expansion board for high quality audio streaming over IP (available in July) openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
Community: success cases DOoIP the ﬁrst “oﬀ the shelf” ﬁrmware for Flyport to let mobile devices programmers be able to interact with the physical world. DOoIP DOoIP is a JSON-‐like protocol over UDP to control each Flyport funcUon without any embedded development. DOoIP library for Android will be available for free. Oﬃcial release 10th July 2012 openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
Community: success cases Evian SMART DROP Joshdesign and Betc created an innovaUve connected object that allows customers to order water directly from their fridge! openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
A company without doors openPicus has a new business model: we are open to the community to generate beneﬁt for the eco-‐system. Over 3.500 people on our community are using Flyport in many applicaUons. We get in touch with them everyday, we discuss and learn to improve our plarorm. Our oﬃce has “no doors”: energy, ideas, people and projects are coming and going making this a new business model with the user at its center. All our latest modules and expansion boards are co-‐designed with the community that also supports us with Beta tesUng. To reach the same eﬀect in a “tradiUonal company” needs more than 35 people and this impacts dramaUcally to the product cost. The engadgment with our community has a mutual beneﬁt: we save on development and we distribute these savings into products price reducUon. openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
What’s Next? Grove Nest: Internet of Things with low cost, standardized sensors/actuators GPRS/3G Nest: a programmable gateway with 2 diﬀerent connecUvity Flyport GPRS/3G – planned for Q3/2012 New IDE 3.0 with embedded Webserver design tool A wiki on wiki.openpicus.com connecThing our ﬁrst Hackathon! 7th July 2012, Rome openPicus | Claudio Carnevali | @akaclaudio
