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.

Making your sensor speak

Suppose that you have deployed sensors at various locations. Those sensors perform monitoring to detect a specific purpose. When a sensor finds a thing that its looking for, a sensor device will send an alert to a command center. Some people probably stand by on that location. When an alert comes, the system can make a sound through a speaker. 

Message-to-sound or text-to-speech is a field of speech technology that leverages machine learning. A system can convert text or message to human speech. In general, the scenario can be described in the following figure:

From the preceding figure, IoT device can perform sensing and send data to AWS. IoT device can send an alert message to AWS to inform to the command center. AWS can convert text message to sound message. Once a command center receives a sound message, it performs to generate sound through a speaker.

Amazon AWS provides a service that applies speech technology, named Amazon Polly. You will learn how to work with...
