In this blog, I describe how to run the Google Assistant SDK on a Raspberry Pi with an external speaker and microphone. After you get things configured and gather key pieces of information you’ll have a simple, portable and easy to reproduce Google Assistant appliance.
Portainer has been a great asset and we have started to rely on it for single-container image management. Unfortunately, Portainer has been designed for 2 key use-cases. single containers and “stacks” that are meant to be deployed onto Kubernetes or Swarm orchestrators. For many of our demos we want to manage a suite of containers and orchestrate their startup so we can manage large container suites like the 9+ container-based micro-services that comprise the Edge-X project.
At Foundries.io, we are constantly looking across the ecosystem for the best projects to complement the microPlatforms. One such project is Portainer. “Portainer is an open-source lightweight management UI which allows you to easily manage your Docker hosts or swarm clusters.”
It seems every industry is placing bets on how blockchain technologies will revolutionize the way they do business. The internet of things is not immune to this hype, but the fundamental question remains. How can it be useful? Centralized vs Decentralized Trust Models The flow of data, that is what the internet of things is all about. How to retrieve it, where to store it, and who can access it.
Foundries.io is excited to have an opportunity to demonstrate our end to end IoT microPlatforms at this years Embedded World conference in Nuremburg, Germany. The Embedded World conference takes place between February 27th-March 1st at the Embedded World conference Center. OSF will be presenting in the Zephyr booth, located in Hall 4, booth number: 4-680.
Foundries.io is excited to have an opportunity to demonstrate our end to end IoT microPlatforms at this years Embedded Linux Conference and the Open IoT Summit alongside the Zephry project.
This year, the events will take place in Portland Oregon, at the downtown Portland Hilton from March 12-15. Foundries.io will be presenting on 4 topics at this year’s IoT Summit.
The Linux microPlatform uses a set of Docker containers to provide end-to-end services used by the Zephyr microPlatform. The containers and their configurations are deployed using a simple shell script that wraps Ansible. The scripts require a version of Ansible with Docker support. Some distro packages such as Ubuntu 16.04 don’t have this, so make sure you install Ansible from a proper source before continuing.
