We had a great time meeting everyone at the SAMI Developer Meet-up, and we hope you did too. If you couldn’t make it, here’s a brief recap of Luc Julia’s presentation at the event, along with his slides tracing the evolution of IoT and the introduction of SAMI.
After recalling his earliest work in IoT (almost 20 years ago!), Luc discussed the incredible pace at which technology has progressed since the 1980s, and the possibility of creating a “digital nervous system” that connects devices and their sensors.
Luc proposed a direction for IoT that brings the focus back to ourselves and the data we are collecting and sharing in order to better our lives. Bringing our data from the devices downstairs into the cloud upstairs frees it from “protocol hell” and frees us to achieve true interoperability.
For example, our partner Valeo builds smart car systems and is now using SAMI to build a bridge between your vehicle and your home. Below, see a proof of concept that shows multiple car systems being remotely controlled from a tablet:
Thanks to everyone who came and said hello, and each of our partners and collaborators for sharing what they are doing with SAMI. If you missed any of these presentations, we’ll be sharing this content with you on the blog. Last week, Azimut Monitoring shared code and implementation details of its Cricket indoor air monitor, and Netvibes introduced its concept of “Potions” for custom interactions on SAMI.
Stay tuned for more guest posts, and in the meantime, see all the videos here:
In the meantime, let us know what you think SAMI can do for you!
