At the same time as the release of mosaik 2.0, DTU and OFFIS arranged the first mosaik Workshop in order to bring developers and (prospective) users of mosaik together.
The event took place at DTU’s premises at Risø September 24, 2014 and was attended by about 20 international participants from DTU as well as guests from Sweden (KTH), Austria (AIT) and Germany (Uni-Passau and IWES).
Beside a thorough introduction to mosaik, the focus of the workshop was on practical work. Anna Kosek (DTU) demonstrated the integration of a PV-plant of DTU’s SYSLAB with mosaik. This turned out to be very straightforward thanks to SYSLAB’s and mosaik’s Java APIs. Later, Stefan Scherfke (OFFIS) and Giuseppe Costanzo (DTU) showed how to connect a house simulator with controllable loads to mosaik.
After a productive event, the participants travelled home with a lot of impressions and know-how about mosaik and its use cases. And we came back with a lot of feedback and with new ideas for the further development of mosaik.
