Digging Deeper into IoT Prototyping
Most IoT projects involve sensing other devices or stimuli, actuating and controlling devices, or interfacing with cloud services. Learn how to create working prototypes, and add sensors and simple cloud connectivity.
Create Prototypes with the Intel® IoT Developer Kit
Rapid prototyping is a way to prove or enhance your ideas or turn them into products. Whether you’re a hobbyist that wants to solve a problem or you’re developing an idea before you seek funding, our kit provides all the hardware and software you need.
The Intel® IoT Developer Kit includes:
- A microcontroller
- A board
- Libraries (for hardware and cloud)
- IDEs and tools
Sensors allow you to collect thermal, photo, pressure, and countless other types of data. Combine the sensor with an actuator and you can trigger a physical output. For example, you can place a temperature sensor in a truck that triggers a device to turn on the air conditioner and alert the driver when the temperature gets too high. With hundreds of sensors and actuators available, you can push the boundaries of possibility.
Any IoT device is only as good as its connection to the outside world. Whether Bluetooth* low energy or high-speed Wi-Fi*, explore the various ways to connect to sensors, devices, and the Internet.
