This tutorial demonstrates how to use an UP Squared* board together with the Arduino Create* IDE to publish messages (sensor data) via MQTT, a messaging protocol suited for IoT applications, to the Amazon Web Services (AWS)* cloud platform.
How it Works
After you set up an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account and follow along with the detailed tutorial steps in GitHub* to register and create a certificate for a Thing (a representation of a cloud device), you’ll run a sketch in Arduino Create that reads data from a rotary angle sensor and sends it to AWS. Published messages (sensor data) can be viewed through the AWS IoT MQTT Client.
What You’ll Learn
From this code sample tutorial you’ll learn how to:
- Setup an AWS account and Thing (a representation of a cloud device)
- Create a certificate for your Thing to authenticate your UP Squared's connection to AWS IoT
- View MQTT Messages (sensor data) with the AWS IoT MQTT Client
