This tutorial shows how to quickly and easily create your first simple IoT system with Degu, collecting real world sensor data, relaying it up to the AWS cloud and sending email notifications with the collected data.
In Part One of this guide, we detailed a process you can use to help develop an initial business case and problem understanding for your IoT system - as well determine whether its worth pursuing the development further.
In this second part of the post, we’ll work through an example of the process detailed.
Starting a new IoT project is a pretty exciting process. The prospect of having new technology whirring away in your business, improving operations, your bottom line and making everyone’s life easier is inherently appealing.
However, it’s all too easy to get carried away by the glittering allure of IoT technology and get lost in the excitement of creating and deploying systems.
The Degu project sets out to standardise the core set of technologies that enable the flow of IoT data from edge devices, up to the cloud and back again. The project strives to enable simpler, faster, and more accessible design, prototyping and validation of wireless IoT sensor based systems - while also providing a path to design and full scale manufacturing of finalised sensor hardware for those looking to deploy their IoT systems.
Spore Lab is thrilled to announce that we will be joining the Degu open source IoT sensor project as a consulting partner. Launched in early 2019, the Degu project sets out to standardize the core set of technologies covering the entire flow of uploading sensor data to the cloud, with the goal of providing a simple and practical way of creating IoT device systems ready for use in the field.
