Industrial IoT Training Event in Oslo

anne News

We have teamed up with Eurotech to offer a 2 day hands-on training event in building industrial grade IoT solutions in Oslo, Norway on February 22-23.


Participants will take home a complete set of tools including an industrial IoT gateway, sensors and software as well as the knowledge and confidence to get going with IoT.

The training covers topics like setting up hardware and software, gateway programming, IoT protocols, communication to cloud services and deploying distributed solutions. For more information and registration visit

BALT Personal Hub Version 1.0

anne News

BALT Personal Hub is a smart gateway for assisted living solutions that will be developed during our three year OFU project.  Our first prototype, the smart night watch is based on a real use-case to help a resident with his night-time routines.

Over the course of the project lifetime, we will develop several prototypes in an iterative process and in close collaboration with the municipalities and end users. You can read more about the BALT Personal Hub and our first Prototype here.

New Chance to Enter the IoT Challenge!

anne News

There is no holding back. The Eclipse IoT Challenge is back in its third edition and now is your chance to enter!


If you have a new IoT idea that is based on open source software and standards you are qualified to enter. As in the previous competitions heavy weight is put on how you document your progress and engage with the community. This competition is all about show-casing the great possibilities of open source in IoT solutions.

Bitreactive is proud to again be an Eclipse IoT sponsor and will follow the competition closely. It was exciting to see that the IoT Challenge 2.0 winners and several of the top contestants used Reactive Blocks in their application development. We are hoping that also this time around contestants will find the benefits of our ready to use open source building blocks and modifiable example systems to finish their projects faster.

You may not win the grand price but we can promise you that the learning experience will be great!

Faster with Eurotech´s New IoT Kit

anne Business, News

Today Eurotech announces its EDCK4001, a new development Kit to create IoT applications faster. Key elements of an industrial IoT solution are Gateway, PLC, field devices, fields protocol and cloud services, and all this is included in the kit.  EDCK4001 provides a learning environment and testbed with hardware and software to build a complete industrial solution.


A professional Reactive Blocks trial license fitted for the Euortech´s Everyware Software Framework comes with the kit purchase. With ready to use building blocks, example applications and tutorials developers can quickly get up to speed. Read the Eurotech press release about the EDCK 4001 here.

Real-Time System Design with Reactive Blocks and JaimacaVM

admin Examples, Publications, Reactive Blocks

Together with aicas GmbH we have put together a concept paper that highlights the possibilities of visual real-time programming. Aicas provides the JamaicaVM, a hard real-time, deterministic runtime environment. The combination with the automated Java code generation of Reactive Blocks supports an intuitive design of event-driven hard real-time systems.

Model-driven development of real-time applications empowers both domain experts and advanced programmers. While programmers can focus on the low-level internals of modules, the domain experts can combine these to create high-level applications. By providing well-defined abstract interfaces, the modelled applications also become more robust to technological changes. A  considerable advantage is that the real-time application itself serves as up-to-date documentation; It bridges gaps between IT, business, and non-tech customers and becomes a basis for inclusive discussions.
