Eclipse IoT Announces Fourth Edition of the Open IoT Challenge

The fourth edition of this challenge encourages IoT enthusiasts and developers to build innovative solutions for the Internet of Things using open standards and open source technology. The previous edition of the Challenge resulted in a great solution to track sleep and improve the life of people suffering with mood disorders.
This year’s participants will once again be supported with hardware development kits, receive technical support, and the winners will receive special prizes.
The Open IoT Challenge encourages participants to build IoT solutions using any or all of the following technologies:
  • IoT open standards, such as MQTT, CoAP, Lightweight M2M, MQTT, OneM2M and OPC UA.
  • Eclipse IoT projects, such as Californium, Kura, Leshan, Milo, Mosquitto, Paho, SmartHome, Unide, Vorto and others listed here.
  • Other open source technology, such as Cloud Foundry, OpenShift, Apache Spark or Apache Camel.
  • Commercial hardware and services that interact with open source software and open standards for IoT.
Participants are required to submit a proposal for their solution before November 13, 2017. A panel of judges will select a shortlist of participants that will receive hardware development kits. All participants will then have until March 15, 2018 to build their IoT solutions. The winners will be announced the end of March 2018.
Additional information about the Challenge is available at http://iot.eclipse.org/open-iot-challenge. Information about the the previous Open IoT Challenge, including the winners, is available here.

IoT temperature sensor with ESP8266 using LWM2M (Eclipse Wakaama)

The sensor uses an ESP8266 board with the protocol Lightweight M2M to communicate the temperature read by DS18B20 to the gateway. The sources of the project are available on GitHub: https://github.com/brusdev/smart-solar-heating-system/tree/master/sensor

ESP8266The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi microchip with full TCP/IP stack and microcontroller capability produced by Espressif Systems. The avalability of same SDK allows the chip to be programmed, removing the need for a separate microcontroller. To program the microchip i use the SDK Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip and PlatformIO, that is an open source ecosystem for IoT development. LwM2M Lightweight M2M is a protocol from the Open Mobile Alliance for M2M or IoT device management and communication. It uses CoAP, a light and compact protocol with an efficient resource data model, for the application layer communication between LWM2M Servers and LWM2M Clients. Each service on a constrained device/sensor/actor is modelled as an LWM2M o…

Smart solar water heating solution to take part in the Open IoT Challenge 4.0!

Smart solar water heating solution uses IoT and AI technologies to improve the efficiency of passive solar water heating system. This solution is designed to take part in the Open IoT Challenge 4.0!

Solar water heating Solar water heating (SWH) is the conversion of sunlight into heat for water heating using a solar thermal collector. Solar water heating systems include storage tanks and solar collectors. There are two types of solar water heating systems: active, which have circulating pumps and controls, and passive, which don't.
Passive solar water heating systems are typically less expensive than active systems, but they're usually not as efficient. However, passive systems can be more reliable and may last longer.


The solar panels heat the water in the storage tank when they are affected by the sun rays. The water reaches the highest temperature when the sun is stronger. If the water in the solar panel is hot the divert valve close the flow towards the boiler so the boile…
