Attendees are encouraged to stop by the booth to view various live demos, including:

  • Thermal Imaging with FLIR Infrared Camera displayed on a Newhaven LCD display: this demo shows how to use the FLIR Infrared Camera easily under Linux with a BeagleBone and how to display a live image.
  • Weather Station with TE Sensors and BLE Connection: see how a BLE Connection can be established and how the sensor data can be transferred.
  • Display Sensor Data via Panasonic BLE on a Newhaven Touch Display with a Microchip PIC24 System: this demo visualises the sensor data from the above weather station via the established BLE Connection and displays it on a Newhaven Touch Display.
  • Trinamic stepper motor controller and driver with Digi International XBEE WiFi Module: try out different modes in how to control stepper motors and learn about the differences.
  • Neural Network Pattern recognition solution with Cognimem: take the first steps with Neural Networks and learn how easy it can be used.
  • Wireless Charging with an IDT Solution and display the charge via wireless connection: wireless charging arrives more and more within different industrial products; learn how to charge a super cap and display the charge via wireless transfer on a small LCD.
  • IoT Sensors via GSM with Nimbelink on a BeagleBone: learn how to transfer sensor data via a GSM Connection to the cloud.
