Since it’s the last day of the SPRINT 4.0 course in Bremen, at the BIBA University, we wanted to share some of the experiences with you. 

The TOI team has been there from Monday, September 2nd, teaching the participants how to build Industrial IoT applications. As the main tool, they used real-life use cases with their 4ZeroPlatform – a Zerynth powered industrial toolset.

More precisely, the 4ZeroPlatform a plug-and-play data gathering, processing, and reporting solution that provides visibility and optimization of Industrial Processes. Its official programming framework is Zerynth. 

A week-long course at BIBA University and a XinaBox-Zerynth workshop

The TOI team also held a Zerynth and XinaBox workshop during the course.

The workshop was divided into three parts, based on the level of complexity:

  • Blinking of the LED on the CW02, using threads to introduce multi-tasking.
  • Adding the SW01 weather sensor and reading data from it. The data is then displayed on the Serial Monitor.
  • The SW01 weather sensor and CW02 become an edge device and share data with the Ubidots IoT platform.

Here’s how it all looked like:

Lincoln project and the 4ZeroPlatform

The Lincoln project is an EU Horizon 2020 research project, where Zerynth, TOI, and BIBA University are involved (among others). Since their connected marine vessels have the Zerynth-powered 4ZeroPlatform as one of the main components, the TOI team used them as an example of a successful Industrial IoT project, from start to finish. More info about the Lincoln project here. Click here to see how their see trial in Pisa looked like this June.

You can see how the presentation about the vessels looked like below:

Next SPRINT 4.0 course will be in Pisa

The next and final SPRINT 4.0 TOI course will be held in Pisa, from the 23rd to the 27th of September. All the workshops will take place at the University of Pisa. So, if you’re interested in learning about Industrial IoT from experts, and seeing Pisa during the fall, you should definitely apply for the course.

You can find more information here, and learn how to enroll for the final course.
