June 7 – Day 3 – IoT Development Using B4A and B4R

Today, we will introduce yet another Rapid Application Development tool, which is known as B4R. B4R will be used to create an IoT application that runs on an ESP8266-based piece of IoT hardware. Once we get the ESP8266 IoT app online, we will utilize B4A to create a companion Android app.

April 28 - Day 5: Fire It Up

In this final installment, we will integrate the Raspberry Pi router and the nRF5 nodes to form a small IPv6 network. Our attention will initially be focused on the operation of the newly-spawned IPv6 network. Once we understand what the IPv6 network is doing, we’ll unleash the IPv6 application.

April 27 - Day 4: Coding the IPv6 Application Layer

Connecting our nRF5 nodes via the Raspberry Pi router is useless if no data flows over the IPv6 Bluetooth Low-Energy links. Today, we will examine the application code that uses the resources of the Nordic Semiconductor BLE 6loWPAN stack to deliver digital payloads.

April 26 - Day 3: IPv6 Essentials

Everything IPv6 that relates to the nRF5 nodes and Raspberry Pi router will be discussed. IPv6 will be examined from the viewpoint of the Nordic Semiconductor BLE 6loWPAN stack. Basic IPv6 operations common to all IPv6 devices will also be included in the discussion.

April 25 - Day 2: IPv6 Nodes

From an embedded point of view, IPv6 is the launch pad for an unlimited number of individually addressable IoT devices. Today’s lecture will feature Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF5 SoC. Utilizing development tools from Nordic Semiconductor, Segger and Keil, out-of-the-box nRF5 devices will be...

April 24 - Day 1: Linux Essentials

The Linux operating system is the key to this lecture. Today’s unlikely co-star is an off-the-shelf Raspberry Pi, which will be configured as an IPv6 router. Various open-source tools will be introduced and used to assist in the adaptation of the Raspberry Pi hardware.
