Arduino Has Its Head In The IoT Cloud

Targeting developers, system integrators, and maker hobbyists, Arduino introduces an IoT Cloud as part of its IoT strategy. The Arduino IoT Cloud is described as an easy-to-use Internet of Things application platform that enables users to develop and manage IoT applications that solve real-life problems in a business environment or in everyday life. 

 

Convenience and flexibility were key considerations for the offering. A major benefit is its ability to program Arduino boards, whereas previously users were required to program them via Arduino Sketch. The Arduino IoT Cloud will quickly and automatically generate a sketch when setting up a new thing, thus enabling a developer to achieve a working device within five minutes of unboxing a board. The Arduino IoT Cloud also allows other methods of interaction, including HTTP REST API, MQTT, command-line tools, JavaScript, and WebSockets.

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.

 

 

The Arduino IoT Cloud was designed with security in mind, from product development through its entire lifecycle, enabling users to securely provision, connect and authenticate devices to the IoT Cloud while they are deployed in the wild, and ensuring all data transmitted between the device and Arduino’s cloud is confidential and tamper-proof. Client authentication (X.509 certificates) is adopted for asymmetric-key based authentication, while Transport Layer Security (TLS) is used for securing all traffic to and from IoT Cloud. To better get your head in the cloud, checkout the datasheet and/or download the app.
