This course is an entry level introduction to developing and deploying solutions for the Internet of Things.
It will focus on capturing data from a trusted device and sending the data to a cloud platform where it can be exploited by the many services available. You will explore all the steps required to create a basic IoT solution using a popular device, the Raspberry Pi, and a trial version of the cloud-based IBM Watson IoT Platform on Bluemix.
What you will learn:
- Quickly create applications that leverage connectivity and analytics as part of an integrated IoT platform.
- Use Node-RED, use APIs to access the platform and explore the different connectivity options for various devices, gateways and applications.
The programming assignments require you to have a Raspberry Pi device – any model of Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin header. It is preferred that you also use an associated SenseHAT extension board for the Raspberry Pi.
Finally, you will be given a complimentary trial for the IBM Watson IoT Platform on Bluemix, which lets you explore all the resources and capabilities of a cloud-based IoT solution environment.
No previous experience with IBM Bluemix or the IBM Watson IoT Platform is required.
