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

IBM Watson IoT

The IBM Watson IoT platform, like the other platforms we have looked at, provides an end-to-end platform for building IoT solutions. It is a fully-managed, cloud-hosted service that can process data from millions of devices and generate some value from it.

IBM Watson IoT primarily uses the MQTT messaging protocol for communication.

The following are the features offered by IBM Watson IoT:

  • Device management: Using the device management service, we can perform device actions such as rebooting or updating firmware, receiving device diagnostics and metadata, or performing bulk device addition and removal.
  • Responsive, scalable connectivity: Uses the industry-standard MQTT protocol (OASIS ratified) to connect devices and applications. MQTT is designed for the efficient exchange of data to and from devices in real time.
  • Secure communication: Securely receive data from...
