A New Experience of Building Wireless Embedded Systems For Everyone

Peer Stritzinger
Erlang Embedded and Automotive Expert

Create amazing Internet of Things designs without soldering or dropping down to C. Right out of the box Grisp-Base boots into Erlang VM running on real bare metal. It features on-board wireless networking 802.11b/g/n WLAN and connectors for standard PMOD sensor and actuator modules.

You can even enter a raffle and win some of the first boards!

Available CPU boards are either too large (can run Linux easily) or too small (Arduino size) to make much sense running an Erlang VM close to the hardware. We are developing a CPU board just in the right size to implement interesting applications in Erlang close to the hardware. This will be the ideal platform for experiments with Erlang Embedded Wireless application. Ideal for educational projects, and students. But also as a prototyping platform for serious  embedded development. The talk will demo the first samples of the board and explain the architecture and the current status of the Erlang/RTEMS = Grisp port.

Talk objectives:

Give a starting point for Erlang Embedded developers in spe.

Target audience:

Makers, Students, Teachers, Robotics enthusiasts (build a swarm of robots with Erlang distribution!) Erlang developers interested in Embedded,

Embedded developers interested in Erlang.


Peer ported Erlang to Hard-Realtime Operationg system RTEMS (www.grisp.org). He developed the Hydraprog automotive control unit flashing device which has been used successfully all over the world for over a decade. Since 2007 the firmware of the device is written mainly in Erlang - including protocol stacks for all existing automotive protocols. Currently developing industrial transport system controller with Erlang in a small embedded system. Initially mastered in Physics at the Technical University Munich, Peer has broad experience ranging from low level device drivers to functional languages in industrial and automotive applications. He has been working self employed as a developer since 1987. He did consulting work in applied cryptography and protocol design and implementation. Peer is currently living and working in the nice countryside west of Munich, Bavaria.
