Overview of this book

There is a lot of work that is being done in the IoT domain and according to Forbes the global IoT market will grow from $157B in 2016 to $457B by 2020. This is an amazing market both in terms technology advancement as well as money. In this book, we will be covering five popular IoT platforms, namely, AWS IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT, Google IoT Core, IBM Watson IoT, and Kaa IoT middleware. You are going to build solutions that will use a Raspberry Pi 3, a DHT11 Temperature and humidity sensor, and a dashboard to visualize the sensor data in real-time. Furthermore, you will also explore various components of each of the platforms that are needed to achieve the desired solution. Besides building solutions, you will look at how Machine Learning and IoT go hand in hand and later design a simple predictive web service based on this concept. By the end of this book, you will be in a position to implement an IoT strategy best-fit for your organization

IoT standards

We have covered almost all topics related to IoT and its technology stack. The final topic in this chapter is going to be about standards in IoT.

As we have seen so far, there are way too many ways in which one can build their IoT solution stack and there are plenty of masters in this field who think their approach is better. This leads to multiple ways of implementing solutions in IoT.

Be it hardware standards, software standards, communication standards, or data computation standards, there are plenty of options available. As we start looking at various platforms in the book, you will come to realize how each of them is different from the other internally, but that they end up with a similar solution stack.

Take a look at this excellent article named IoT Standards and Protocols - An overview of protocols involved in Internet of Things devices and applications. Help clarify with IoT layer technology stack and head-to-head comparisons here: It will give you a high-level understanding of all the possible protocols and standards in each layer.
