ETSI and the University of Málaga are pleased to invite you to participate in a oneM2M Hackathon from 13th to 15th March 2020 held at the University of Málaga, Spain.

This activity is supported by oneM2M and the InDiCo Project, a project funded by the European Union and coordinated by ETSI.

A tutorial will take place on the first day in order to introduce the oneM2M standard and the Eclipse OM2M open source project, followed by the actual hackathon.

This competition is aimed at students regardless of the field of their training as well as staff from local start-ups. It is mainly intended for engineering students but it can also be extended to other students regardless of their registration institution.
The participation can take place on an individual basis or as teams of 2 persons (multi-disciplinary teams are encouraged).

Today, sensors, actuators, tags, vehicles, and intelligent devices all have the ability to communicate. The number of IoT devices is continuously increasing, and it has been predicted to see billions of connected objects interconnected in the near future. IoT applications provide advantages in various domains from smart cities, factories of the future, connected cars, home automation, e-health to precision agriculture. This fast-growing ecosystem is leading IoT towards a promising future. However, IoT market expansion opportunities are not straightforward. A set of challenges should be overcome to enable IoT mass-scale deployment across various industries including interoperability, complexity, and scalability issues.

Currently, the IoT market is suffering from vertical fragmentation affecting the majority of business sectors. In fact, various vendor-specific IoT solutions have been designed independently for specific applications, which has led to serious interoperability issues. To address this challenge, the eight most important telecom SDOs in the world established a global partnership project called oneM2M. oneM2M provides a common architecture for IoT cross-domain interoperability in terms of communication and semantic data.

Eclipse OM2M is one of the open source implementations of the oneM2M standard. It supports all types of interfaces and nodes defined in the standard including “Infrastructure Node”, “Middle Node”, “Application Service Node” and “Application Dedicated Node”.  Each node may host a set of applications and a Common Service Entity including capabilities for communication protocol bindings, device interworking, management, security, etc. Eclipse OM2M relies on a modular architecture, designed on top of a protocol-independent kernel, running on top of an OSGi layer and is highly extensible via plugins, making it a promising candidate for integration and experimentation.

The tutorial will be structured in two parts. In the first part, we will develop the foundations and the technical background that will be useful for the attendees for getting started with the oneM2M common architecture’s main concepts, features and interfaces. In the second part, we will conduct the technical learning part. This will consist of interactive training that will address the different issues necessary for developers. This includes understanding and manipulating the oneM2M API for developing applications and integrating devices on top of the Eclipse OM2M platform.

The structure of the tutorial is the following:

Technical Presentations

  • oneM2M Common Architecture for IoT
  • Eclipse OM2M, Open Source oneM2M-based Platform

Demonstrations and API manipulations

  • Hands-on oneM2M, development of your IoT Applications
  • Interworking with legacy and vendor-specific technologies

Basic software development skills are a must.
Laptop is required, with USB-A connectivity (1 port)
