Golioth was at Embedded World 2024

As we described in our announcement post, we had a range of demos at our kiosk in the Zephyr Booth at Embedded World 2024. Once again this conference proved to a valuable opportunity to connect with engineers across industries and get feedback on what we’re building at Golioth.

We met with our silicon partners, many of our design partners, and met new customers who were curious how to connect their devices to the cloud. One demo in particular drew people in and had people asking whether new Golioth capabilities could fit their needs.

Bluetooth Mesh Demo

We’ll continue to release videos of our demos throughout the next few weeks on the Golioth YouTube channel, but we wanted to have the Cloud-connected Bluetooth Mesh demo available. It showcases many of the things we’re interested in and working on actively at Golioth:

  • Improving our Cloud – We are continually adding new features and testing against our Firmware SDK and a wide range of devices.
  • Adding more collaboration features – This demo was done by Sandra Capri of Ambient Sensors, one of the companies that is in our Design Partner program. Sandra was able to get a demo up and going on Golioth quickly and it unlocked the ability to control hardware and firmware she knew really well from the Cloud (something she was new to). We’ll have more detail from her on the blog soon.
  • Bluetooth Gateways – Bluetooth devices are amazing because they enable low power monitoring and can pass a range of data between devices. The downside is the requirement to have a programming element (such as iOS or Android app) in the loop in order to control that hardware. But what if you didn’t? We are working on a range of new gateway designs, including on our newly announced continuously verified board, the RAK5010.
  • Controlling Short Range Devices – Golioth already supports boards that have connectivity over cellular, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and Thread. Bluetooth has always been missing from that list, and yet is one of the largest classes of devices. Watch a recent stream about Bluetooth and stay tuned to see more about Bluetooth device control, or hop over to our forums to let us know what you need.

We have been regularly doing Friday Afternoon Streams at Golioth. It’s a great way to get a feel for our company culture and see some of the unreleased things that we are working on, including hack-day demos. This week we’ll be recapping more of the stuff we saw at Embedded World 2024, as well as some new features inside the Golioth Firmware SDK. Watch on LinkedIn or YouTube, and ask questions live:
