Bits and Bytes of IoT

Let’s Decipher IoT…

Internet of things (IoT) is the latest trend in IT Industry. After Cloud Computing boom, almost all major Technology Houses are now investing in IoT. With increasing number of Smart Phones and easy access to Fast Internet across the globe, we are moving towards a connected world where the sensors will play a crucial role in our day to day life.

The best part about IoT is that the most of the components required for it have been around for some time. You need not be the best Electronics or Software Guru to start making something on your own. With easy access to Single Board Computer Modules like Raspberry Pi and System on Chip (SoC) modules like Arduino, ESP8266 etc its very easy to get started with IoT.

Here on this website, you will find IoT related topics from Basic to Advanced Level (Bits and Bytes). All the articles will be categorized under different Menu items, however, for quick reference, you can check following categorized list –


TABLE OF CONTENTS

A. IoT Fundamentals

B. ESP8266

C. NodeMCU Dev Board

D. Raspberry Pi

E. MQTT

F. Amazon Web Services IoT (AWS IoT)

  1. Hi Patrick,

    Yes, you are right. Depending upon the OS and Programming Language you pick for your implementation, following tasks need to be performed –

    1. Script/Code should get triggered after the OS Boot process gets completed.For Ex in the case of Linux OS and Python Script, you can add your script to crontab using “crontab -e” command. In the crontab file, you should add this line “@reboot sudo python your_python_file_with_path.py”.

    2. Script/Code Process should be monitored and restarted in case of any unexpected error (again the implementation would differ from cases to case depending upon your OS and PL selection). With Python scripts you can use “python-daemon” library.

    The answer to your second question is simple; Most of the MQTT brokers and Client Implementations support Auto Reconnect. To start with, you may use AWS IoT Platform for MQTT Broker and Paho for MQTT Client.

    Regards
