Connecting to the Internet MQTT and Putting the I in IoT
Modern IoT systems don’t only have to control things in their local environment, but also have to connect to the wider world to glean external information, report information or issues to an aggregation system, or just so you can control your IoT device from your smartphone. This seminar will discuss the cloud side of IoT, as well as a more practical example of connecting to an mqtt server and passing data from our edge sensor.
