Internet of Things # 1, Programming the ESP8266

Today we bring you the first video of a series on the Internet of Things using the ESP8266 module.   In today’s video, we want to show you how to easily upload our programs to ESP8266 using the Ampy application. In addition we will show how to create a simple program using Spyder, the editor that includes the Anaconda distribution that we have installed in the previous videos., Internet of Things 2016

This video has been featured at the Internet of Things 2016 event on 19th and 20th of April in Helsinki, Finland. It demonstrates the ease of use of IoT-Ticket – and how big-data and analytics powered dashboards and reports can be created and rolled out in minutes from within your web-browser!  

Internet of Things Simulator GUI Demo

As a part of the Internet of Things Course, in a group of five developed a simulator right from scratch for simulating the Internet of Things (IoT) network with smart objects being a part of this network.   The simulator has API functions for connecting, accessing, mutating and disconnecting the smart objects from the IoT network.   The simulator also had features like connecting your smart objects like a temperature sensor to your Twitter Account wherein there will be a Tweet from the account if the sensor reaches a threshold temperature. Used the twitter4j API for connecting the application to…

Internet of Things – Wearable Sensors

Today I will talk about how you can make wearable sensors publish their data to the cloud via a mobile phone. I will create a simple iPhone app that collect information from a wearable sensor using Bluetooth and then publish that information to an MQTT broker.   The idea of wearables is not new, and depending on definition, one could argue that one of the first was the 500 year old Abacus ring (…). The thing that has made them more interesting recently is their connectivity, which makes them part of the Internet of Things. Making them connect themselves would…

Internet of Things | Part 3: IOT Plant

IOT_Plant Post data to data.nextronic’s stream server, using an ESP8266.   This sketch uses an ESP8266 to POST sensor readings to nextronic’s data logging streams (   A post will be sent every 3 seconds.   Before uploading this sketch, there are a number of global vars that need adjusting:   WIFI Setting: Fill in your wifi network ssid and password data stream inputs: Fill in your data stream’s public, private, and data FIELDS names before uploading! Hardware Hookup:   These components are connected to the ESP8266’s I/O pins: D1 – DHT22 sensor for moisture and temperature A0 – soil…

Internet of Things (IoT) – Perspectives from Quark

The Quark System on a Chip is the first product from the Intel® Quark technology family of low-power, small-core products, is the culmination of years of hard work, collaboration, and unwavering vision on the part of a number of people and represents an important development of design competency for Intel Ireland. This talk discusses the team’s recent experience in developing the Galileo platform targeted at the Maker community. The innovation sparked by engaging with the maker community. The platform’s ease of programming and it’s accessibility. In addition to the maker community, larger scale application for Internet of Things (IoT) devices…

Powering Your Next Internet of Things App with MQTT

When it comes to connecting physical objects from daily life to the internet, you’re faced with several challenges. MQTT is a protocol for the Internet of Things that addresses the aforementioned challenges and makes it possible to build scalable sensor networks. This tutorial aims to give you a hands-on experience with the MQTT protocol and walk you through the creation of an end-to-end M2M/Internet of Things application, using open source Java components such as Eclipse Paho, Mosquitto, and Kura. You will leave the session knowing all the cool features of MQTT and how you can integrate it into your Java…

Wiring the Internet of Things with Node-RED

The Internet of Things is not a single choice of technology, approach or philosophy. Its very existence is the bringing together of multiple platforms, products and protocols, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. One of the challenges of IoT is to make it as easy as possible to allow developers to make things, for play or profit, serious or whimsical, professional or hobbyist.   Node-RED is an open-source visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things. Built on top of node.js, it provides a light-weight, browser-based editor that makes it easy to integrate different streams…

Internet of Things (IoT) Design Patterns and the Spark Core

Watch now as CTO of technology consulting firm, Logical Advantage, Dan Thyer, dives into design patterns of IoT and the Spark Core microcontroller!   Dan built his very own Internet of Things, IoT, home automation system that is controlling 30 different things with 4 different types of microcontrollers. We will talk about the types of microcontrollers used and the strengths and weaknesses of each plus design patterns of IoT. The Spark Core tiny Wi-Fi development board will be featured along with his latest IoT 20 foot Christmas tree project.
