  • Anyone Can Code an Embedded Controller

    by NicholasHerriot and Chris Styles

    Come watch a complete beginner get up and running with an mbed.

    Watch a geek race a 12 year old girl to get the lights flashing on an embedded controller (mbed). Come and try, and if you can beat her you get to keep the mbed! If a child can do this so can you!

    Nicholas will give an insight to what Vodafone are doing to get embedded controllers talking across 3g and gsm networks. This will be the first of our talks - going through our ideas on API's and Connecting to mobile networks in an easy fashion using embedded controllers and a USB dongle.

    Chris will follow with an introduction to the mbed Rapid Prototyping Platform and discuss how the practical form factor of the mbed microcontroller, online compiler, SDK and global community, can support developers efficiently prototype 32-bit MCU based design.

    Exclusive Technology Preview
    ------------------------------------
    At OTA we will be previewing libraries for interfacing the mbed Microcontroller to the Vodafone K3770 USB 3G Dongle, and we are looking for beta testers before official public release. To find out more, and register your interest visit http://mbed.org/vodafone

    Come Hack With Us
    -----------------------
    We'll be bringing along a bunch of mbeds, sensors, servos and stuff to develop your own project with. We'll have a number of hackstations setup for the entire event, so drop by to get developing! #mbedatOTA12

    Question Mark?
    -----------------
    Throughout the show and the talks, we'll have our SMS printer setup so you can ask questions and give feedback. SMS: 07554 351934

    At 12:15pm to 1:15pm, Friday 1st June

  • Connecting Microcontrollers to the Cloud

    by Ashley Mills and Chris Styles

    Chris discusses prototyping web-connected embedded designs using the 3G network and using HTML5 Websockets to transmit real-time sensor data to a rich web interface. He’ll demonstrate how to build applications with the mbed Microcontroller, online browser-based C/C++ compiler and APIs - including live coding and compilation!

    Ashley will discuss applying the mbed + 3G platform, and provide an informative teardown of two 3G-connected prototypes:

    i) Question Mark: a 3G plug-and-play feedback endpoint for ad-hoc events. Built from a receipt printer, mbed microcontroller, and a 3G dongle.
    ii) VGANode: a 3G connected VGA camera that uploads images to the cloud. Built from a jpeg camera, mbed microcontroller, 3G dongle, and a node.js server.

    He’ll describe prototyping the designs, technologies and APIs used.
