Overview of this book

The Internet of Things market increased a lot in the past few years and IoT development and its adoption have showed an upward trend. Analysis and predictions say that Enterprise IoT platforms are the future of IoT. AWS IoT is currently leading the market with its wide range of device support SDKs and versatile management console. This book initially introduces you to the IoT platforms, and how it makes our IoT development easy. It then covers the complete AWS IoT Suite and how it can be used to develop secure communication between internet-connected things such as sensors, actuators, embedded devices, smart applications, and so on. The book also covers the various modules of AWS: AWS Greengrass, AWS device SDKs, AWS IoT Platform, AWS Button, AWS Management consoles, AWS-related CLI, and API references, all with practical use cases. Near the end, the book supplies security-related best practices to make bi-directional communication more secure. When you've finished this book, you'll be up-and-running with the AWS IoT Suite, and building IoT projects.

Building data visualization for your IoT projects

We have learned how to visualize sensor data using the JavaScript library. The data can come from the IoT device directly or probably be consumed from Amazon AWS. In the context of data streaming to serve huge IoT device requests, we can use AWS IoT as the frontend from the cloud system to address huge requests. Since Amazon AWS is built from cloud technology, we are confident about its availability. 

In general, we can build an IoT project by combining various AWS services, as shown in the following figure:

You select the IoT device that should be supported by AWS IoT. If not supported, you should build your own library that enables accessing AWS IoT. Within AWS IoT, you can save in the local AWS using various AWS services, such as Amazon RDS, Amazon EC2 with the installed SQL Server, MySQL, or PostgreSQL.

We have learned to visualize sensor data directly from AWS IoT with the publisher/subscriber. You can implement data visualization with...
