Workshop – Sensing reality with WoT on Microcontrollers

Working with sensors or actuators can be a good exercise to get into the Internet of Things. Even if the community has provided many drivers you can use on various system, from cheap Arduino DIY boards to full GNU/Linux boxes, the lack of unification can appear chaotic to developers.

To solve fragmentation of implementations W3C proposed “Generic Sensors API” which is worth to be supported; while JavaScript is totally capable capable of addressing low end targets (using Node.js or IoT.js powered by JerryScript engine).

Application developers will be happy to use an easy and lightweight toolbox, hiding the integration’s complexity (keep lower level tasks to data-sheet readers).
