The Eclipse ioFog set of technologies is a fog computing layer that can be installed on any hardware running Linux. Once installed, it provides a universal runtime for microservices to run on the edge. In addition to a common runtime, ioFog also provides a set of useful services including a message bus, dynamic configuration of the microservices, and remote debugging.
Automated interconnection of ioFog instances is provided by the ComSat component. This relieves developers from writing code just to move data from one place to another.
This project will provide a compelling graphical user interface (GUI) putting critical information at the fingertips of the pipeline operators. The master perspective will have a profile of the pipeline at the top followed by one or more contiguous station views under which a stack of tabular views for events, alarms, flow, analog, status and communication will be displayed.
Station perspectives will show a stack of line charts (trends), station, 3d and the same stack of tabular views in the master perspective but restricted to the current station.
Eclipse Kapua is a modular integration platform for IoT devices and smart sensors that bridges Operation Technology with Information Technology.
The following diagram provides a functional architecture of the Eclipse Kapua project.
The connectivity of the devices is managed through a multi-protocol message broker. In the initial contribution, the protocol for the device connectivity will be the IoT protocol MQTT. The broker supports other protocols including AMQP and WebSockets for application integration.
Eclipse Scanning allows experiments to be conducted by coordinating the operation of scientific instruments, for example motors or detectors. It sequences the movements of these instruments (or devices) in order to scan different parts of the experimental space. For instance you might scan a temperature controller to conduct an experiment at different temperatures or move a goniometer through a range of optical angles or combine the two in a two dimensional scan.
Papyrus-xtUML is a tool that supplies the capability to edit, execute and translate xtUML models. Executable, translatable UML (xtUML) is an extension to UML based upon the Shlaer-Mellor Method of Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), which supports a powerful approach to Model-Driven Development (MDD). Papyrus-xtUML provides the system design community with access to xtUML editing, execution and translation capabilities, along with a forum to advance the use of this methodology.
N4JS adds a static type system similar to that of Java to ECMAScript 2015. This type system support nominal and structural typing, in both cases supporting generics similar to that of Java 8. In order to capture details specific to ECMAScript,additional constructs are introduced such as union types, 'this' type, and special forms of structural types. Additional concepts required for larger projects are built in, e.g., dependency injection, test support, and various component types.
