The Smart City series of practical laboratory assignments span the fundamental ideas, visions and the technologies related to the development of services for the Smart City (or Society) and the Internet of Things. Join us at Goto 10.
In the first lab, we assemble a sensor and an actuator utilizing Raspberry Pi (or another prototype board) and Arduino. We learn how to use Windows 10 for IoT and use the most common tools. Bring your Raspberry Pi (or prototype board of your choice), including SD card, casing, etc. If you want to connect analog devices using Arduino, bring an Arduino that you can connect via USB. We will build simple applications, learn to run, test and debug them.
We will use Visual Studio for development. The Arduino IDE will be used to prepare our Arduino boards with the Firmata Firmware, which makes it easy to communicate with. The Windows 10 IoT Core Dashboard application will be used to install Windows 10 IoT on your device, and to manage them once installed. Windows Remote Experience can be used to experiment with your Arduino board, and connected devices, directly. We will follow the steps laid out in the first three chapters of “Mastering Internet of Things”.
There will also be an opportunity to meet earlier at GOTO 10 to discuss previous work and related areas. If you want to connect your own devices, please bring them along. I’ll help get them connected. Also consider visiting the Smart City Lectures.
