This engagement was a direct result of my work on deploying Akka on the Raspberry PI (see also the initial article).

VCharge developed an embedded system and software solution to help address the issue of maintaining the stability of the electric grid in the presence of increasing renewable generation.

During this engagement I supported VCharge in:

  • building a new version of the low-latency backend service (based on Akka) responsible for aggregating telemetry as well as actuating the IoT devices at the core of the VCharge Grid network.
  • further development of the firmware driving the embedded IoT devices

Tools used: C, Buildroot, Bash, Scala, Python, Akka, elasticsearch, logstash, Kibana, Puppet, AWS
