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.

In this chapter, you've been shown how application-layer standards can help you in your development by providing third-party infrastructure software you can use, as well as enabling them to interact with others without having to customize your code.

As you've seen, tightly-coupled interfaces are straightforward to implement. However, if you want to do something that goes beyond the interfaces that have already been established, it all becomes a bit tricky. All of the software interacting with your devices needs to be updated to take into consideration the new interfaces you create. If you want your interfaces standardized, it becomes even harder.

In this chapter, you've learned also learned the basics of CoRE, the LWM2M object model and IPSO Smart Objects. You've been introduced to the Leshan project and used it to publish sensor data and actuator control parameters using LWM2M. In the coming chapters, you will learn more about XMPP and how its loosely coupled IoT interfaces can be...
