Energie Visible: Live and Free!

After being asked by several members of WoT the community and beyond to release the Energie Visible prototype, we finally managed to find the time to package it and now give it for free on the Web! To recap: the Energie Visible project aims at making the your energy consumption … visible! We created a page to host the application, you’ll find the latest version and additional info there. Note that it currently only works with the Bluetooth Ploggs and on Windows (XP or later). The bundle you download there basically contains two applications. First is contains a Web of...

Energie Visible: A Video 7

Energie Visible: A Video

I’m pretty sure that by now you got the fact that the Energie Visible project is one of our favorite use-cases for the Web of Things. In this project we apply the concept of smart things with webservers and RESTful APIs to create a plug-and-play energy monitoring system for your home or company. In order to better illustrate the application and for us not to have to carry a printer, a kettle and a… fridge around for each demo, we shot a video of the prototype. The end of the video also contains some more technical insights on the structure...

Energie Visible: A Sustainable Web of Things Project 2

Energie Visible: A Sustainable Web of Things Project

Together with people (Dominique Guinard, Markus Weiss and Tobias Graml) from the BitsToEnergy lab of ETH Zurich we are actively working on a Web of Things system that helps people to better understand their energy consumption. A major burden for people, who want to save energy at home, is for them to identify how much energy is consumed by different appliances. How much does my computer consume in operation / when it is powered off? Is the consumption of my energy-saving lamp significantly lower in the long run than the normal lamp I’ve got there? Such questions are key to...

L’Energie Visible got Selected for National Energy Award 0

L’Energie Visible got Selected for National Energy Award

Hi guys and gals, Remember not long ago I was talking about our first real-world implementation of the WOT concepts in an energy monitoring application: Are you Energy Efficient? Sense it the WEB way, well this system, now named “l’energie visible” or “visible energy” was selected amongst a number of projects for the Jade national energy award in Switzerland. It is now entering the final selection phase, 20 projects are on the list. The folk can vote for the projects on Jade Award. So if you like the Energie Visible project then do support us, vote for project 13. More...

Ondes Visibles: What if the Electrosmog was Visible?

The Web of Things cries for wireless communication! As a consequence, as it is being deployed out there it contributes to a phenomena called electrosmog, understand a cloud of electromagnetic waves that increasingly surrounds us (and the exact effect of that cloud on us is still in the middle of many debates…). The fascinating part about this cloud is that much like our electricity consumption, we can’t really see it or feel it (well except for electro-sensitive people who say they can). Back in 2007, we started working on a project to make electricity visible the Web way (Energie Visible!),...

WOT Demonstration @ Pervasive 2009 1

WOT Demonstration @ Pervasive 2009

Dear all, A short paper I have been wanting to publish for a while here. It is about the Web of Things demonstrator we presented at Pervasive 2009 in Japan, which is based on our Energie Visible project. Since it is a short paper it does not present ground breaking results but it contains a bit more technical information on how the Plogg Gateway was built and on the resource orientation of the Ploggs. By the way, we finally managed to begin the deployment of the Energie Visible project in our own labs. The goal is to have Ploggs in...

Awesome news! 2

Awesome news!

All the medias in the world are talking about it, but we didn’t yet. We have an awesome announcement to.. well.. announce. Last week while Dom was busy eating churros and discussing about twittering chimpanzees, he was also preparing to go to a little village in Switzerland because he was told to go there for Energissima. But why? Because his project Energie Visible has won the Jade Nature award (and 10k chf with it), out of 20 other selected projects! The Jade Nature award recompenses an innovating project in the area of sustainability and protection of the environment. And that’s...

Web of Things Talk at Synetgies 2

Web of Things Talk at Synetgies

Hi folks! For those who live in Zurich (Switzerland…) or nearby we are going to give a talk as guest of the Synetgies organization. In particular the talk will focus on our smart unified gateways for devices which do not have IP/HTTP capabilities yet. We will also demonstrate some of our prototypes such as the Energie Visible and physical mashups using the Sun SPOT platform. The session is going to take place in room HG E 33.3 at ETH Zurich, Rämistrasse 101, 8092 Zürich. The session will start at 7.15 pm. After the session we’ll go to a bar for...

Keynotes at Lift: David Rose

Great pleasure to be able to attend another talk from David Rose from Ambient Devices and Vitality Inc. Instead of a pure transcription I’ll try to sum up some aspects of the talk. Note that does not entirely reflect what Dave meant but rather my interpretation of the talk. Dave began by talking about clairvoyance and magics. He explained how they materialized these chimers into the well-known Orb which changes its color according to a trend. Dave then explained how ambient devices where between push and pull technologies, how they should be peripherial and seamless with the environment(s). He explained...
