Visualizing Aircraft Data

Oracle IoT Cloud Service, Raspberry Pi, and Radio Surveillance will help to visualize aircraft data
12 October

Need to track a single aircraft or an entire fleet without spending a ton of money? In this session, the speakers explore real-life use cases for the Internet of Things and embedded systems with the Raspberry Pi. They build an inexpensive Raspberry Pi setup, including a dual-band Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) radio receiver, GPS receiver, network interface, and Java interface to Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service. They integrate this data with an Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (Oracle JET) framework viewing traffic in real time. The FAA’s ADS-B is a precise satellite-based surveillance system that broadcasts real-time weather, uses GPS technology to determine any aircraft’s location and airspeed, and relays that data to those who are listening.

JDK 9 Hidden Gems

Mikael Vidstedt and Sandhya Viswanathan talk about JDK 9 optimizations spanning support for larger vectors
01 November

What does JDK 9 mean to you? Modularization is the first thing that comes to mind, but there is a lot more. Come discover less-well-known but important technologies that Oracle has been working on with partners such as Intel to provide a higher-performance, lower-footprint, scalable Java with JDK 9.

This session talks about JDK 9 optimizations spanning support for larger vectors with enhanced vectorization, optimized math libraries, cryptography and compression acceleration, compact strings, new APIs with associated optimized implementation, and many more features that help big data, cloud, microservices, HPC, and FSI applications.

Speakers are:

  • Mikael Vidstedt, JVM Architect, Oracle
  • Sandhya Viswanathan, Senior Staff Software Engineer, Intel Corporation
