IoT project ideas and use cases – SyedTips – 5

One of my acquaintances pinged me today asking for suggestions/ideas for his Engineering project themed around IoT. At first, I gave my standard reply:

iot_suggestion

And at that instance, it hit me to get ideas from use-cases provided by leading IoT Companies such as the Kaa Project (http://www.kaaproject.org/) and many others.

I’ve compiled below a list of IoT Project Ideas for your Engineering Projects or IoT use-case demos and have listed them below with links back to the source. You can use these as a starting point and generate your own use cases or directly implement one of these. I’ll try adding in more use cases from other vendors. Happy Making (instead of ready-made buying :P). Ohh, it’s Engineer’s Day today. Happy that.

Building IoT Devices – From Prototype to Production – India

This was a small talk I gave on World IoT Day (April 9th, 2016) at Collab House about my experiences and findings of IoT Prototype –> Production in Hyderabad, India.

I don’t have much info in the Slide Deck itself and hope to do a detailed writeup sometime. This should serve as a brief Intro.

Part 0: Getting started with AWS IoT and Arduino (+ESP8266)

[7/June/2017]: I came across this post: https://mongoose-os.com/blog/esp8266-remote-control-via-aws-iot/ I haven’t tried it yet. Pls let me know in the comments if this worked for you.

[31/July/2016]: I’m very Sorry. I couldn’t get the ESP8266 talk with the AWS IoT platform due to the ESP’s limited ability to support TLS 1.2 which is required by AWS IoT.

If you’re comfortable using the ESP SDK, something exciting just came up: https://github.com/SuperHouse/esp-open-rtos/pull/173 –> an MQTT example with AWS IoT + ESP8266.

I’ll wait till someone builds a wrapper/library around it.

I’ve been thinking of using the Arduino MKR1000 instead with the AWS IoT. Let’s hope this get’s done quick 🙂


Pre.Scriptum: (Edit: 21, Dec, 2015)  Amazon released the AWS IoT suite of applications and services a while back and I now feel it’ll be more helpful if we base our tutorial on the AWS IoT platform. It’s a TODO for me and hopefully I’ll have something up and running.


I’ll be doing a series of posts on getting started with building IoT applications using an AWS EC2 Instance and an Arduino with ESP8266 WiFi Module. We’ll eventually delve into Raspberry Pi, MongoDB, Node.js, Dashboards etc as  the journey continues. Continue reading “Part 0: Getting started with AWS IoT and Arduino (+ESP8266)”
