The Internet of (Lego) Trains

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We wanted to find out if we could use the same languages and tools on IoT hardware. We used Lego trains and Raspberry Pi’s as a sample project.

The Lego trains are equipped with a Raspberry Pi, camera, wireless dongle, infrared transmitter, speaker, RFID reader and battery pack. Next to that we have automated switch tracks and camera's again with the help of Raspberry Pi's. We also build some lightning effects with LEDs controlled by Particle Photon’s. On top of that we also automated a Lego ferris wheel.  To control the trains and other parts we built a Java application based on Jersey and Tomcat together with an AngularJS application.
