Vitaliy Rudnytskiy talks about the Internet of Things and other mobile technology solutions
Vitaliy Rudnytskiy, another of the Mobile Trends Conference 2022 speakers, talks about mobile technologies that have caught his attention recently. This time we will learn more about specific innovations – both for private use and for businesses. In the Developer Experience team at SAP, Vitaliy Rudnytskiy is responsible for several areas, including developer programs for Central and Eastern Europe.
The Internet of Things is an increasingly thriving area of mobile. Which smart devices would you most welcome in your home and why?
I don’t think I’m yet ripe for “wearable technologies” like the $199 smart belt or smart socks recently unveiled at CES in Las Vegas 🙂 But some of the devices categorized as part of the broader Internet of Things I already have at home or at work. For children – Lego Mindstorms and the DICE+ cube from a Poznań startup, i.e. the possibility of learning through play. For me – obviously mobile devices, smartphones and tablets.
I also have a Pebble Watch, which I bought for myself after … last year’s Mobile Trends conference at the urging of one of the speakers from the US. Unfortunately, Pebble turned out to be a big disappointment, especially due to the long missing support for displaying characters of alphabets other than English. Since November I’ve had a BeagleBone Black – one of the single-board computers that allow you to have fun with sensors, such a home internet of things.
The Arduino is still waiting for its turn in the desk. Well, and I wouldn’t mind a drone, but I don’t have that yet.
What do you think about Google Glass? Whether the time for smartglasses has already passed or is yet to come?
Our company is primarily in the enterprise systems market. And there are different cycles there than in the consumer market – they are not determined by increasingly short-lived fads, but by real customer needs. We realize that with the Internet of Things, the industrial revolution is unfolding before our eyes 4.0, and we take it very seriously. Even if Google’s glasses haven’t caught on in the consumer market, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a use for smart glasses in the industry.
In collaboration with Vuzix and Metaio, we have developed solutions using augmented reality for warehouse management and repairs.
And what about Beacons – in your opinion it’s a hit or putty?
With beacons it is similar to Google Glass. We are also working on solutions using this technology, and not just for point of sale. Last year we worked on several projects, also combined with our 3D presentation technology.
One of the interesting projects was in a new, but rapidly growing area for us… sports, or more precisely – the use of beacons in golf. There we used m.in. beacons of Cracow’s Estimote.
Give a talk at Mobile Trends Conference 2022. What your presentation will be about?
This time it will not be on the Internet of Things, but nt. developing responsive applications. We have been working for several years on the SAPUI5 library used in the next generation of our SAP Fiori user interfaces. Late last year, under the influence of our technology community, we released this library as open source OpenUI5 on github.
Now everyone – even our competitors 😉 – can use it in their projects to code high-end responsive web applications for desktops and mobile devices. And since it’s open source, anyone can extend OpenUI5 with newer components, too. My speech will be just an introduction to OpenUI5 and how we use this library to create our products.
