Raspberry Pi Pinout 3v3 Power The 3v3, 3.3 volt, supply pin on the Pi has a max current draw of 50 mA, enough to power a couple of LEDs but not much more. You should use the 5v0 supply instead, and use a regulator if you need 3v3. BCM pin 0 on Rev 1 board and pin 2 on Rev 2 board. WiringPi pin 8. Ladder Board Small Green LED. OpenSense We are part of the OpenSense research project which is funded by Nano-Tera. OpenSense aims at investigating community-based sensing using wireless sensor network technology to monitor air pollution. The project receives regular attention in both national and international media. Please refer to our media section for a list of articles. OpenSense Project Overview ¶
Ken Sakamura Bio Ken Sakamura is Professor of Information Science at the University of Tokyo, where he also serves as the Executive Director of the university's newly established Digital Museum. He's most famous as the originator, chief architect, and principle driving force behind the TRON Project. But in addition, he's an architect of buildings, a designer of computerized gadgets that defy the imagination, a consultant for technology projects in countries around the globe--which is not to mention Japan--and he's an author and editor of numerous computer-related books and magazines. Professor Sakamura was born in Tokyo on July 25, 1951, which means he reached young adulthood just as Japan's "electronics boom" and "calculator wars" were starting to take place. Hopelessly fascinated by electronics, after graduating from high school, he enrolled in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Keio University from which he ultimately received his Ph.D. in 1979.
World Economic Forum-Rethinking personal data Report: Unlocking the Value of Personal Data: From Collection to Usage, February 2013 Unlocking the Value of Personal Data: From Collection to Usage, prepared in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group, examines the need for new approaches in the policies which enable the managing of personal data in ways that are flexible, adaptive and contextually driven. The report highlights outcomes from a nine month, multistakeholder, global dialogue on how the principles for using personal data may need to be refreshed to ensure they protect the rights of individuals, unlock socio-economic value and are fit for the complexities of a hyperconnected world. A key insight from the report notes that the age of Big Data creates both new opportunities and risks, particularly as they relate to the privacy of individuals.
Robin De Croon's Blog A few days ago I was granted access to the closed beta of Open.Sense.se is an open platform for all those who want to imagine, prototype and test new Devices, Installations, Scenarios, Applications for this globally interconnected and immersive world. Designers, developers, tinkerers, students, hobbyists, R&D departments, artists, self quantifiers, dataviz maniacs, whatever your skills are, we tried to make Open.Sen.se easy to use and yet powerful for you. A site which main focus is to turn all your data into something usable and useful.

5 Best Open Source Tools to Create Scalable Online Social Networking Platforms While Facebook and Twitter is the core of the Internet’s social networking world, some companies and organizations may have reasons to set up their own social networking applications. For some companies, setting up their own social network is a good option because the public Internet may not be secure enough for certain conversations concerning sensitive proprietary information or customer contact information. Top 5 Open Source Social Networking Software Deploying your own uniquely branded social media tool with open source software could be a good choice especially if you plan to differentiate your product through custom development built on top of the open source tools. There are many open source social networking toolsets available and it can sometimes become quite overwhelming and cumbersome even to find out which one best suits your organization's requirements. Here's a list of 5 good open source social networking software which we think are the very best among the lot.
Narrative Unveils the Clip 2 Wearable Camera Sweden’s Narrative has today released details of version two of its Clip wearable camera, ahead of CES. Like the previous version, the Clip 2 is designed to be worn as you go about every day life. It takes a photograph every 30 seconds and, once uploaded to Narrative’s servers, these images are assembled into ‘moments’ that capture the most visually interesting parts of your day. One big problem with the original Clip was its reliance on being connected to a computer to adjust settings and upload photos.
wiringpi 1.0.5 A python interface to WiringPi library which allows for easily interfacing with the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi. Also supports i2c and SPI WiringPi: An implementation of most of the Arduino Wiring The CLOUDS Lab: Flagship Projects - Gridbus and Cloudbus Introduction The SensorWeb project aims at developing Open SensorWeb Architecture (OSWA) and implementing standards compliant platform and middleware for integration of sensor networks with emerging distributed computing platforms such as Grids. It confirms to Web Services standard defined by the W3C (World-Wide Web) and SensorML (Sensor Model Language) standard defined by the OpenGeospatial Consortium. This integration of sensor networks with Grid computing brings out dual benefits: (i) sensor networks can off-load heavy processing activities to the Grid and (ii) Grid-based sensor applications can provide advance services for smart-sensing by deploying scenario-specific operators at runtime. Our Open SensorWeb Architecture consists of four layers: sensor fabric layer, core services, user-level services, and applications. The OSWA-based platform provides a number of sensor and actuation services, such as:
