Once we know what an IoT cloud platform is and the reference architecture, we can implement an Android Things app that streams real-time data to the cloud. Generally speaking, to use an IoT cloud platform we have to follow these steps:
- Configure the IoT project on the cloud platform providing all the information including the type of the data we want to manage.
- Create an IoT platform client on the client side (Android Things app) that handles the connection and sends the data.
In this Android Things IoT project, we will use Samsung Artik Cloud (https://artik.cloud/) as the IoT cloud platform,. This is a professional platform that provides almost all the services described in the previous paragraphs. Moreover, it is easy to use and it provides several SDKs that simplify the data exchange process. In this project, we will manually implement the data exchange between the Android Things board and Samsung Artik Cloud so that we can learn all the steps to...
