I have an intel edison up and running with several Groove sensors such as temperature, sound connected. I recently received an intel iot gateway and was looking at the possibility of integrating both devices. I've tried connecting the edison the gateways wifi and have also tried adding the edison as a sensor in the iot gateway dashboard, but have not had any luck.
If anyone has any ideas on how to connect both devices or use them together it would be greatly appreciated!
Your intel IoT gate has a linux, so you can deploy a http://mosquitto.org/ mosquitto(open source message broker) and upload your data using MQTT, another option is deploying a rest API using for example node js and express.
We are investigating your case, as soon as we have an answer we will let you know. In the meantime you can try with Fran.B suggestions.
The latest Edison image includes paho-mqtt which you can use, documentation and examples can be found at https://www.eclipse.org/paho/ https://www.eclipse.org/paho/. There is also a guide for Intel IoT Gateways using this library to pull out data from a sensor. https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/600941 https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/600941. You can use both guides to connect both platforms and transfer data with mqtt using paho-mqtt.
Thank you for this response I am in the process of trying it out. One quick question I have is once connected, or if there is another way to send data from the Edison to the Gateway using bluetooth then have the gateway send that data over Wifi to another source, such as intel's iot cloud dashboard.
Thank you again!
In that case I would suggest you to check the Intel Edison Bluetooth Guide and check the possible profiles that you can use and make sure that this is also supported by the Gateway that you're using. However, this is not a simple task so you'll need to do some investigation before jumping into it.
