The State of Arduino and IoT


Published on

A look at the state of Arduino in the past, present and future with applications covering the Internet of Things and the Arduino community in Minnesota ( Arduino.MN ). I did this presentation at our Hackfest in July of 2014. Details at

The State of Arduino and IoT

  1. 1. The State of Arduino A look at the past, present and future ! Justin Grammens Arduino.MN
  2. 2. What is it? Single board Microcontroller 8-bit Atmel AVR or 32-bit Atmel ARM UNO offers 6 analog input pins 14 digital I/O pins Initial release in 2005
  3. 3. Where did it come from? Interaction Design Institute in Ivrea, Italy Looking for a cheaper solutions for their students Built the platform using open source tools in less than a year I was hooked after my first program
  4. 4. Sample of Boards Mega Uno Due LilyPad Total of 16 official boards produced...
  5. 5. Why is it popular? Easy - Programmed based on a language called Wiring Cheap - clones can now be bought for $9 or less Low energy - .1 watt Durable - fanless, little to no heat Open source - schemas are all online and free Makes it excellent for prototyping!
  6. 6. Where to Start? Arduino Inventor’s Kit Arduino UNO LEDs Motors / Servos Buttons / Switches Sensors
  7. 7. Components LED Resistors Transistor Servo Piezo Element Potentiometer
  8. 8. Components DC Motor Push Button Photo Resistor Ethernet Shield LCD Shield WIFI Shield
  9. 9. Examples Blink Distance Photocell Temperature
  10. 10. Blink
  11. 11. Distance
  12. 12. Photocell
  13. 13. Temperature
  14. 14. Internet of Things Term goes back 1999 Born from areas of M2M, but now connections are online! Increased in popularity as NFC, Bar/QR Codes evolved ABI estimates 30 billion connected devices by 2020 Devices are connected by BLE, Wifi (6LoWPAN), Cellular Driven by lower costs of Sensors, HW Networks and Cloud
  15. 15. Internet of Things Environmental Monitoring - Atmospheric Conditions Infrastructure Management - Repair & Safety Industrial Applications - Productivity Medical and Healthcare - Healthy Living Building / Home Automation - Convenience & Power Saving Transportation Systems - Safety
  16. 16. Internet of Things Lots of measurement today. Final stage of IoT is where the network adjusts and takes action Still in the early days, but IoT is happening today! Look at your power meter and manufacturing companies Consortiums are forming today with Google, Intel, Microsoft Number of cloud and hardware companies are being acquired by larger players.
  17. 17. Internet of Things Billion dollar companies are being started in garages and at user groups today. Security Cloud Software & Middleware Sensors
  18. 18. Arduino and IoT Partnerships with Intel SoC ( Galileo Project ) IoT is all about measuring things. Arduino is positioned to help everyone do this. Come to a meeting / Hackfest http://Arduino.MN
