Mastering Internet of Things

By: Peter Waher

Overview of this book

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced. At the end of the book, you will have mastered creating open, interoperable and secure networks of things, protecting the privacy and integrity of your users and their information.

Understanding the IoT Gateway project

An IoT service platform can help you with many of the repetitive tasks required when creating an IoT service or device. It also provides you with an abstraction layer for devices and gives you support for many IoT-related protocols. By using such a platform as the base for your application, many of those repeated programming tasks can be eliminated, or wholly or partially automated and solved. This leaves you to focus on what you really want to do: develop functionality. This approach drastically increases productivity and shortens development cycles, which can be used to either increase functionality or quality, or to decrease development costs. Furthermore, it improves interoperability, increases security, and makes it simpler to manage massive amounts of things in large networks, since many of these aspects are already integrated into the platform.

For these reasons, this chapter is dedicated to the study of one such IoT platform: the WaherIoT Gateway...
