We really had a great time at the Embedded World 2019 in Nuremberg this week. It’s not just that we met a ton of people interested in Python and IoT, it’s the fact that we got a chance to share our knowledge and expertise with them. Truly, we had some great conversations.

From the morning of the first day, when we greeted the RS Components team, who hosted us at their stand, we knew that we were going to have fun in the next three days.

The first day was really dedicated to an innovative demo we prepared with Cypress and RS Components. We set up two Cloud dashboards – one of the RS Components stand, and one on the Cypress stand.

Both dashboards showed temperature and humidity readings that the PSoC 6 boards we programmed in Python have picked up.

On each PSoC 6 Pioneer Kit, there was a CapSense® (capacitive sensing) button which served a special purpose. Pressing it triggered a Blockchain transaction, and stored temperature and humidity information.

Visitors also had an option to scan a QR code on the dashboard. That lead them to all the technical details of the Blockchain transactions.

You can take a look at the images from the Cypress stand:

Then, as day two rolled in, there was a lot of interest in the Zerynth powered 4ZeroPlatform.

Since we had a demo with TOI’s industrial toolkit for IoT solution providers, lot’s of people wanted to see how it works. They also wanted to learn how they could use it in their company.

So, we explained that the 4ZeroPlatform is a plug-and-play data gathering, processing, and reporting solution that provides visibility and optimization of Industrial Processes. It is compatible with both old and new machinery and programmable in Python.

Markt&Technik even wrote an article about it:

We also paid a visit to the AAEON stand, and look, it’s the 4ZeroPlatform once again:

If you were at the Embedded World this year, we hope you had as much fun as we did. And of course, that we’ll see you again next year.

Until then,
Happy codding.
