We have already presented the spectacular IoT project consisting of a Lego truck with a Titan engine controlled via cloud:
[b] Lego Bob and Titan meets IoT[\b]
Public has been given access to improved versions of this truck on several forums:
CRAFT international software conference https://craft-conf.com/
Ericsson Hungary Open House
presentations at Budapest Technical University
HUSTEF (Hungarian Software Testing Forum) 2017
and so on.
For instance among the improvements figures an on-board camera ( see pictures below) that can send visual feedback to the dashboard (well, assuming the availability of neeeded bandwidth on Wi-Fi or cellular channels) .
The truck itself is a collaboration project between Ericsson developers and consultant colleagues from Sigma Technology (https://sigmatechnology.se/)
However for many this may appear to be a toy. Let's not forget though that Lego could be a great way to protoype IoT applications ; this truck is a cool demo for that. The majority of IoT devices will be less complex than the Lego Truck presented.
Besides, it demonstrates Titans capability to execute on ARM processors, specifically Raspberry Pi, and in general on processors used in an embedded environment, which opens the possibility of implanting a test logic into these environments. Also IoT protocol handling capabilities of TTCN-3 and Titan are demonstrated.
I have attached a few pix to convey the feeling.
Mind the onboard camera stylishly fixed with a rubber band:
