Connecting a battery to the mangOH Yellow

I attended the Sierra Wireless Innovation Summit, on last Wednesday and Thursday. Which means that I got the opportunity to play with a mangOH Yellow board and Octave, and that I brought back home the board 🙂

Before starting to write my first own application, today I connected a lithium-ion battery to the board, and configured Octave to display charge status. Which took me less than one minute. Impressive.

Pysense: hardware setup in a virtual machine

I had to help someone starting a project which includes, among others, a Pysense board.

The development environment was Linux Mint 18.3, running in a VirtualBox virtual machine (VirtualBox version 5.2.26). The host system was a MacBook Pro running macOS Mojave.

One difficulty that the user may face with this environment relates to the USB device redirection. When the Pysense is switched to bootloader mode, for firmware upgrade, it stays in this mode less than 7 seconds, which is not long enough to configure VirtualBox.

Client / server with UDP in Go

I have to integrate some Go applications into a distributed validation environment that I’m currently developing.  These applications use UDP to exchange messages. I’m well experienced in message-based communication, for several different types of transport layers (wireless, wired, half duplex, full duplex…) but never got the opportunity to use the UDP/IP stack until today.

A list of IoT platforms

Updated: 20-Sep-2020

A word of caution: platform can have different meanings in the list below. It can be a software development framework, a software application providing communication (and possibly management and storage) services, a hosted application providing those services, etc. But the common point between all the items in the list is at least some technical mean easing communication between devices in the field (in vehicles, at home, in the pocket, around the wrist, etc.) and some users, usually through some part of the Internet.
