USA Cycling Benefits from Working with M&S and IBM
M&S Consulting is proud to be partnering with USA Cycling and IBM JStart to help the Women’s Team Pursuit cycling team prepare for major international competitions. We are integrating the MYLAPS timing system used at multiple velodromes and sending timing data in MQTT format to the Watson IoT Platform running on Bluemix. For the first time, coaches and athletes can see their splits at multiple locations around the track in real time, and the timing data can be correlated with other metrics such as power output and heartrate for each athlete. Go TeamUSA!

TEKids Energy Makers: AirBoticists
With advances in devices, sensors, big data, and cloud technologies, the world is experiencing an Internet of Things (IoT) phenomenon that is rapidly transforming our day-to-day lives. Our curriculum helped students gain a basic understanding of the multifaceted world of IoT technologies, powered by readily available open source hardware, software, and cloud technologies. Over 650 students from 3rd–6th grade built a Raspberry Pi-based autonomous robot that reacts to environmental conditions in the past 6 months. They programmed the robot to take sensor measurements and upload their results to the cloud to view and analyze with a web browser.
M&S and TEKids were selected to present this Workshop at the JavaOne4Kids conference that occurs the weekend before Oracle Open World. Watch the video below for a recap from the exciting weekend.
