Rapid prototyping is a quick way to prove your ideas, enhance them, or take them a step further in production. Before electronic boards such as the Intel® Edison board or the Intel® Galileo board were available, hardware prototyping was expensive and accessible only to a select few. Now, with online orders and a wide variety of learning tools, such as Instructables, it’s easy to dive into your...
In this article we will discuss what Microsoft8 Azure* is and how you can use it in order to set up your IoT project. Here you will also learn about the role of cloud services, specific features of Azure such as software patching, network load balancing, high-availability features and more. This section also showcases the implementation of cloud APIs and explains the gateway relationship to the...
From this exercise, developers will learn how to: Connect the Intel® Edison development platform, a computing platform designed for prototyping and producing IoT and wearable computing products. Interface with the Intel® Edison platform IO and sensor repository using MRAA and UPM from the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, a complete hardware and software solution to help developers explore the IoT and...
Not everyone can become a rocket scientist, or can they? For many, software development can seem like rocket science; however, the Intel® IoT Developer Program supports events like the recent 2016 NASA Space Apps Challenge to demonstrate the ease of development on IoT platforms.
This automatic automatic watering system application is part of a series of how-to Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) code sample exercises using the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, Intel® Edison development platform, cloud platforms, APIs, and other technologies.
This article explains how to establish a connection with Microsoft Azure* cloud services using nodeJS* API. While this was written for the Intel® Edison board, it should work on any platform that runs Node.js*. This includes creating a storage account, store and retrieve data.
Your Intel® Edison or Intel® Galileo board came with the official operating system, based on Yocto Linux* and the latest version of the
Functions and Libraries
Over the past several years, the Internet of Things (IOT) has gained increasing attention from developers and consumers alike. You can now control almost everything in your home from your AC to your lights with a simple click of an app on your phone. In this article we make a plant monitor using the Intel® Edison board that autonomously waters a plant when the moisture level is too low and gives...
