Workshop in San Diego with OMA and Sierra Wireless
The workshop was a great chance to meet top-notch, intelligent and advanced developers of Internet of Things (IoT) products and services. Moreover, we had a chance to work with such great companies like Open Mobile Alliance and Sierra Wireless. The chief goal was to introduce Lightweight Machine to Machine protocols (LWM2M).
We set out to compile and install the Wakaama client on the Arduino Yun. Wakaama exposes all the Yun inputs and outputs through LininoIO Bridge. The Yun allows you to pair it to your existing wireless connection, so with a few easy steps to join the WiFi, both your computer and your Yun are on the same network. This allows you to plug the Yun into a portable power device or to a wall adaptor, and you can still update your code.
Our group of students were very dedicated and had a great time exploring the Yun. We truly believe that the Yun, Yun Mini, and Arduino Industrial are a great line of hardware to accommodate the maker-hackers who are trying to develop products that work in the emerging Internet of Things world. Therefore, we hope for more workshops and more collaboration with OMA and Sierra Wireless in the future.
