Apache Camel doing IoT to help measure air quality in the streets of France

Today I read a very interesting blog post from Abdellatif Bouchama, about a system he developed in less than a day, that gathers air quality metrics from IoT devices from the cities of France, and then using MQTT protocol gathers the data using ActiveMQ message broker, and then process the data using Apache Camel, inserting the data into an Elasticsearch database.

IoT devises sending air quality data over MQTT to A-MQ broker for further processing by Apache Camel - Using JBoss Fuse product.
When data are in Elasticsearch there is lovely web consoles such as Kibana that can present the data in geo graphical displays.

Geo graphical display using Kibana to highligh the cities with air quality data

I encourage you to continue reading this blog from the original posting at bushhorn. The post is here.
The source code of this is posted on github as well.

PS: Yes the Camel route is only 3 lines of code (4 if you add the log statement) ;)

Well done Abdellatif.


PS: If you are interested in more about IoT and Apache Camel, then there is the new community project called camel-labs that provides a number of Camel components and tooling around this very topic.
