At IBM Impact 2013, we introduced the Liberty Car. We replaced the radio receiver in a radio controlled car with a Raspberry Pi. Then, with the help of WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile, we added hardware and software to make it possible to drive the car from any device with WiFi and a web browser. Part 1 describes how to build the hardware.
Four Liberty developers won an IBM internal hackathon to create a mobile game using a set of mandated technologies. They added Liberty profile and created the Liberty Paintball game.
In June the Liberty Car traveled to IBM Innovate, Orlando and Qcon New York. Come watch some videos from the conferences and find out what we talked about!
Last year we demonstrated the first application server running on a Raspberry Pi with the Liberty profile. Later in the year we demonstrated running the Liberty profile on a mobile phone. Now we’ve gone even further and have a Liberty profile server running on and controlling a radio controlled car! Introducing the truly mobile application server!
What does the Minecraft computer game and the WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile have in common? Other than they are both written in Java not much – until now.
When we aren’t busy making Liberty awesome, we’re often looking at how we can get Liberty to do awesome things. Gabriel Knepper Mendes, a member of the WebSphere IT Services team, describes how he got Liberty running on a Mini X TV Box.
When we started working on the Liberty profile, we were trying to create something really great for developers.
The following article explains how can you get a lightweight, dynamic OSGi based application server to run on an android phone.
In this video, we see The liberty profile running a web front end which interfaces with Really Small Message Broker (RSMB) to ultimately monitor and control devices that are 50 miles away on the Isle of Wight!
