The IoT edge devices have embedded written all over them. Sensor nodes that acquire data and transmit them to the cloud is quickly becoming common place. In this series, Jacob Beningo will walk attendees through the steps and processes necessary to create a sensor node using an ESP8266 which is an integrated microcontroller / Wi-Fi device while programming all the firmware in Python. In this course, attendees will walk away with an understanding on how to create a sensor node and use a high level programming level.

July 14 – Day 5 – Device Management and the Automated Universe

In this final session, we will examine the concepts on how we can remotely manage our ESP8266 device node and update the Micro Python application. We will discuss potential problems such as security risks. We’ll also look at how with two-way communication, we can begin to automate responds, respond...

July 13 – Day 4 – Connecting the ESP8266 to the Internet

In this session, we will examine how to connect the ESP8266 to the internet. The code will be put in place that will allow a developer to stream their sensor data and store it in the cloud. Attendees will walk away with the knowledge to connect their system to the internet and begin manipulating...

July 12 – Day 3 – Interfacing Sensors to the ESP8266

Every sensor node requires sensors that will be sampled. In this session, Jacob will walk attendees through how to hook up a variety of sensors to the ESP8266. We will examine sensors on I2C, SPI, UART and even 1-wire. Attendees will learn how to setup sensor sampling loops and interface to a...

July 11 – Day 2 – Getting Started with the ESP8266

There are many different network protocols that devices can use to connect to the internet but a common way is to use Wi-Fi. Sensor nodes should be low power and using a microcontroller and a Wi-Fi module is not a great solution. In this session, we will examine the ESP8266 which is a combined Wi-...

July 10 – Day 1 – The IoT Architecture

Before designing an IoT sensor node, it’s useful to understand the different ideas and definitions for the IoT. In this session, Jacob will review the system architecture for the IoT and define the terms and concepts along with the hardware and software that will be needed to design a low power...
