When it comes to emergency response, every second counts. For emergency response vehicles, meandering through busy intersections and gridlocked streets can present serious consequences for the person in need of care. In this tutorial, we’ll build a smart traffic management system to address this type of emergency scenario. These types of smart services incorporated into city infrastructure is what truly makes a connected city “connected.”
How many times have you gone around a parking lot more than twice looking for a space for your vehicle? You and I are not alone in this quest. Every time it happens, I keep wondering why there isn’t a smart way to reserve a parking spot in realtime and pay automatically when you leave. Until now, when we took it upon ourselves at PubNub to build this.
From kick-starting a project to production, Cypress PSoC modules are a good choice for any ultra low power application requiring BLE. PSoC® 4 is packaged with ARM® Cortex™-M0 CPU as core architecture which combines programmable and reconfigurable analog and digital blocks with flexible automatic routing. The hardware components are configurable through the PSoC Creator Design Environment.
Linkit Smart 7688 Duo is yet another open source OpenWRT Linux-based Hardware Development Kit. It comes with inbuilt WiFi and is compatible with Arduino Yún sketches. Its platform is powered by Mediatek’s MT7688 [MPU] and Atmega32u4 [MCU]. The board provides a rich set of hardware interfaces including GPIO, UART, I2C and others, and connectivity through USB and Ethernet communication protocols. The board also comes with decent memory and storage.
Continuing from Part 1 where we setup Alexa voice service with the Raspberry Pi, this post will conclude and demonstrate the home automation system that we set out to build. So let’s check out the nitty gritty of building the final solution using Amazon Alexa.
Ever imagined building a hands-free speaker that you can control with your voice. Wouldn’t it be even better if we could also control home appliances this way? In this blog series, let’s see how to build a voice controlled home automation system using Amazon Alexa and Raspberry Pi. I will show you how we can use Raspberry Pi to run the Alexa Voice Service and control a Light Bulb.
For kickstarting any IoT project, the basic requirement is a full featured development kit and a development environment. Linkit One is one of the open source high performance prototyping HDK (Hardware Development Kit) from Mediatek which has rich peripherals and interfaces like WIFI, BLE, GPS, GSM etc., in a single board which enables developers to prototype and build Wearable/IOT Devices without any external hardware dependency.
