On April 15, 2016 the 4th Athens IoT Meetup was organized by Ex Machina and Resin.io at Innovathens, Technopolis. What made this a special event, was the presence of many leading international IoT drivers, such as the Eclipse Foundation and the well-known IoT sensors designer and manufacturer Libelium. Ex Machina is making use of Eclipse services and Libelium hardware in its IoT solutions.

With a rich flavor of open source software and hardware the invited speakers presented the latest advancements in IoT in Europe through use-cases, software tools and hardware.

Eclipse IoT provides open source implementations of the standards, services and frameworks that enable an Open Internet of Things.

Libelium designs and manufactures hardware and software (SDK) for wireless sensor networks so that system integrators, engineering, and consultancy companies can deliver reliable Internet of Things, M2M, and Smart Cities solutions with minimum time to market.

Two international research centers recognized as Europe’s leading institutions in IoT technologies Create-NET & INRIA as well as Jolocom an IoT startup working on a decentralized data sharing and collaboration tool for the sharing economy.
