Think Python is too resource-intensive for low-power 8-bit embedded systems? Think again! Developed for low-cost wireless (802.15.4) modules, the SNAPpy virtual machine enables users to modify embedded device behavior dynamically over the air, leveraging the power of Python. In this session a key architect of the technology will discuss software, the virtual machine approach, and real-world success stories. This presentation features live demonstrations of the SNAPpy virtual machine running on readily available battery-operated wireless sensor nodes (RF Engines) from Synapse. You'll also see first-hand the power of Portal - a wireless application development GUI developed using wxPython.
