Mind Blowing Internet of Things Projects
Session: We live in an exciting time where more and more everyday items “things” are becoming smart! “Things” have sensors and can communicate to other “things” and can provide control to more “things”! The Internet of Things, IoT, is upon us in a huge way and makers are rapidly inventing cool gadgets every day! See Dan’s latest IoT projects leveraging technology from Microsoft, Amazon Echo and Particle. Dan leverages Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core running on the Raspberry Pi and connects to services in Azure. Dan uses Bluetooth Beacons and Azure Machine Learning to predict the health of his pets! Dan will also talk about his very own IoT, home automation system that he built that is controlling more than 30 different things with 5 different types of microcontrollers. Most of the code is open source and his articles and videos have about a million views. We will talk about the types of microcontrollers and microprocessors used and the strengths and weaknesses of each.
