The Environment Saftey Network prototype
The ESN was the culmination of an IBM Smarter Planet workshop. We were tasked with using MQTT for a smarter planet based project. We developed the ESN as an idea and created this prototype for our presentation. The ESN is a network that is built on existing infrastructure of peoples clothing and gear when doing outdoor activities we’re then able to receive data that may tell us if a person is injured such as body temperature or heart rate and their GPS location to assist emergency services in aiding them.
We used a Number of different technologies in this project. We had a MQTT server running on a local Mac machine, an Arduino MQTT client with sensors, a Java MQTT Client that could publish to COSM and a web interface that is subscribed to COSM Datastreams and displays them effectively using MAPBOX.js for plotting co-ordinates.
My roles in this project
Helping to get a Java MQTT client receiving data from the Arduino MQTT client via the RSMB running on the local mac machine.
