    Do you have a Blog Post or something which describes the exact use case you have in mind with the VehicleGear Example files?
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    no that was just an example to show that feature. The idea behind the VehicleGear example was to add platform-specific hex values to each gear, without "hardcoding" them in the functionblock, to keep it platform-independent and reusable.
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    I see
    in our case this could also be machine specific (as each machine can be programmed slightly different… for whatever reasons)
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    in that case you would need one mapping file per machine / implementation of the machine
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    yep
    But one more question
    the mapping in theorie describes the value of the respectice property or just som „addidional“ information?
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    the mapping feature is generic, so you can do both with - it is up to you
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    great
    has vorto already an API to work with?
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    an API to create those Mapping files programmatically?
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    or to read em
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    mapping files are treated as models, so you can use the /api/v1/models APIs as you would for Functionblocks, InformationModels, ..
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    ah, neat
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    btw here is the issue about documenting the functionblock mapping feature: eclipse/vorto#1535
    if you have any thoughts or ideas, you can leave a comment on the issue
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    Yes.. if i find time soon I will tackle that during the process and send a PR
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    that would be awesome :)

    Hi folks,

    this evening I will give a talk at the Stuttgart Industry 4.0 Meetup which is currently Online only about Open Source and IoT.
    And the talk will be in english. So everybody who is interested can freely join : )

    Find all details here: https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Stuttgart-Industrie-4-0-und-IoT-Meetup/events/mxsmnqybcgbcc/

    A short summary is:
    "In the recent years a large ecosystem of projects around (I)IoT is grown in the Open Source Communities. Ranging from projects that help to connect devices like Apache PLC4X or Eclipse Californium over projects that help building digital twins like Eclipse Ditto, store massive amounts of device data like Apache IoTDB up to projects that help to scale the solutions to millions of devices and still keep operations simple like Eclipse Hawkbit or Eclipse IoFog. I will try to give an overview over many of these projects, how they relate and how they can be combined to build up a really full stack to easily start your own (I)IoT solution."

    Hi,
    Is there a way to enforce unit of measurement from an enum. For example, I wish to enforce that the duration is always in Unit.seconds in below snippet.
    mandatory duration as int "In Unit.second"
    Thank you for your time and consideration to help.
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    @smy4kor Hi Sandeep,
    You can do this with this syntax: duration as int with {measurementUnit: org.eclipse.vorto.Unit.second }
    Note: you have to import the Enum for the unit and you have to use the fully qualified name (i.e. org.eclipse.vorto.Unit instead of just Unit)
    Sandeep Ravindranath
    @smy4kor
    @kolotu ,thank you very much. I would like to see some more units like bytes, kilobytes, megabytes etc. Does it makes sense to introduce them to org.eclipse.vorto.Unit or should I just use my own enum?
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    @smy4kor I think those units would be a great addition to the org.eclipse.vorto.Unit enum - I have added them in the version 1.0.1 of that enum.
    Sandeep Ravindranath
    @smy4kor
    @kolotu that was super quick. Thank you once again. Any idea when 1.0.1 will be released?
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    @smy4kor you're welcome. it is released already - you should be able to use it immediately.
    Sandeep Ravindranath
    @smy4kor
    Ah yes I see it now. It was my mistake that I was using the search which always goes to 1.0.0.
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu
    the search will find both from now on. It maybe took a couple of seconds until the search index was updated
    Sandeep Ravindranath
    @smy4kor
    Yes you are right. Now I see both 1.0.0 and 1.0.1.

    Are there any known plugins to export a vorto model as a 'diagram'?
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu

    hi @loverdeg-ep no, to my knowledge there is no such plugin yet.
    You can find the list of official plugins here: https://vorto.eclipse.org/#/generators
    Experimental plugins can be found here: https://github.com/eclipse/vorto-examples/tree/master/vorto-generators

    What kind of diagram would you like to export?

    Garrett LoVerde
    @loverdeg-ep
    Similarish to this
    image.png
    image.png
    Or this
    I have been looking for something that can represent LWM2M objects in diagrammatic fashion for years.
    Kevin Olotu
    @kolotu

    that looks interesting - if you are interested in developing such a plugin, you can check out our plugin sdk: https://github.com/eclipse/vorto/blob/master/plugin-sdk/Readme.md

    if you have questions feel free to reach out again

    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    This looks really cool... I think I also have to play with this
    And with something like dotty it should not be too hard
    Garrett LoVerde
    @loverdeg-ep
    It would really help me make a case for using vorto as a general purpose modeling AND protocol translation tool
    Source document of those images is here https://www.w3.org/WoT/IG/wiki/images/d/de/WebToTheEdge-WoT.pdf

    @JulianFeinauer
    @kolotu and I are doing a Webinar on Vorto: https://my.demio.com/ref/UtcctknspATIeAM4
    In 10 Minutes : )
    Garrett LoVerde
    @loverdeg-ep
    @JulianFeinauer is it recorded?
    Julian
    @JulianFeinauer
    Yes.. sorry we were a bit spontaneous with the announce
    It is recorded and I can share the link here once its on yt
    Garrett LoVerde
    @loverdeg-ep
    I'm in the process of creating a new model to replace an architecture for which no modeling was done. Would vorto enable me to create a translator to feed LWM2M data into the existing format while I transition to the new model?
    My earlier questions regarding diagraming of models would be used to show the differences between existing and new.
