Setting Up the Galileo Board and the Development Environment

Hardware and software requirements

First, let's see what hardware and software this project calls for.

As discussed, our Galileo boards need to be able to connect to our network. For this, we will need the Intel IoT image that we installed in Chapter 4, Monitoring Data Remotely. You may revisit that chapter to refresh your memory if you wish.

For our Arduino LED module, we will need the following major components:

  1. The first one is the Arduino Uno board. This is the most used Arduino board at the present time, and it is the standard board for many projects.

  2. The second board that we'll need is the Adafruit CC3000 Wi-Fi breakout board. This board utilizes Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) for communication, so you can expect an easy data transfer and easy control of its data transfer speed. Asynchronous connections are made possible through this board's IRQ pin, providing you with a proper interrupt system.

  3. The third major component is the Red LED with a 220 Ohm resistor.

These are the three major...
