06 a 10/07/2015 – Mini Curso: Building Raspberry Pi Controllers with Python

This course, featuring lecturer Don Wilcher, will provide an overview of the Raspberry Pi, the Python programming language, and prototyping and development tools used to create awesome electronic controllers. We will discuss example controllers, hands-on projects and case studies, as well as present the new Raspberry Pi 2, which has more memory and I/O ports.

  • July 6 – Day 1: Introduction to Building Raspberry Pi Controllers
    The Raspberry Pi is a user-friendly, credit-card-size, Linux-based computer that design engineers (and educators and Makers) can use as a rapid development platform to design products for the consumer and industrial markets. An overview of the Raspberry Pi’s architecture will be explained, along with a presentation of the examples illustrating the use of this credit-card-size, Linux-based computer.
  • July 7 – Day 2: Introduction to the Python Programming Language
    This session will include a discussion on Python, the purpose of the interpretive programming language, and the inventor who created it. A review of the Python IDLE (Integrated DeveLopment Environment) will be provided in this session. The discussion will also focus on Python 2, 3, and “sudo python” IDLEs. Also, basic hands-on scripting activities (building a simple calculator) on using Python will be presented in this session, as well.
  • July 8 – Day 3: A Detailed Look at the RPi.GPIO Library
    The Python library used in connecting the platform to the physical world for electronic controls is the RPi.GPIO code. In this session we’ll investigate the RPi’s GPIO (General Input Output) pins and how to enable them with the RPi.GPIO library. We’ll investigate how to install the library using LXTerminal/Linux commands. The final test of the RPi.GPIO library installation will consist of controlling an LED and reading an electric switch wired to the Raspberry Pi.
  • July 9 – Day 4: Raspibot Board Part 1
    The Raspibot board is an accessory controller that allows control of DC and stepper motors, LED matrices and LCDs, allowing basic mobile robots and electronic controllers to be built quite easily (uses the RRB library dev’d by Simon Monk). We’ll discuss the board architecture, a hands-on activity of installing the Raspibot RRB library to the Raspberry Pi, and how to operate two DC motors and onboard LEDs by way of sending simple RRB scripting commands to the board using the “sudo python” IDLE.
  • July 10 – Day 5: Raspibot Board Part 2
    This final session is a continuation of the Raspibot board discussion. We’ll take a look at how to create awesome visual displays using an LED matrix cube. A discussion of the cube’s construction and attaching it to the Raspibot will be presented. Final testing of the LED matrix cube with RRB and RPi.GPIO libraries will be discussed in this concluding session.


09/07/2015 – Blueprint for the Industrial Internet: The Architecture

The basic technical premise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is simple: a common architecture that can connect sensor to cloud, power to factory, and cities to medical services. An infrastructure that can bridge these domains would impact industry as profoundly as the enterprise Internet impacted business across verticals.

Of course, what’s hard is how to architect systems to capitalize on the IIoT opportunity.

This talk will examine data centricity, an architectural feature of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) Reference Architecture – the IIC’s recently-released initial guidance for enabling the IIoT vision. Data-centric communications connect individual machines together into large-scale intelligent systems that can perform functions that were not possible before. We will also review successful use cases in medical, power, transportation, and industrial control applications. Learning from these applications, the proposed controlled, secure data sharing promises a new era of connectivity that can unify systems top to bottom and across industries.
