Hi Rick, I was one of the Boston University students who worked on the mobile development. I wrote an open source API in Swift that enables users to interact with IoTDM for their iOS projects. We were able to manage and update location data acquired by bluetooth beacons and GPS in real time across iOS, Android and Web javascript apps. IoTDM was relatively simple to install and setup on my local machine and any remote Amazon EC2 instance. It is a powerful tool for developers to build IoT apps upon. There are many more apps to be made!

Hi Rick, I ran the software on my Mac Air, along with the students; it is pretty easy to get started - took me a few hours to set up my environment. By contrast, some open source packages I have tried are much much harder to get rolling. The IoTDM wiki page is here https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/IoTDM:Main with info for those who want to download and try the software. The wiki also has the info on the weekly webex meetings open to the community. Also, the student demos are posted here http://www.industry-academia.org/student-projects.html

I'd love to hear anyone who has had a hands on with this code talk about its pros and cons.
