Internet of Things with the Arduino Yún (Free PDF)

File Size: 3.85 Mb

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing topic in the tech world, and more and more hardware projects that are funded using crowd-funding campaigns include some connected objects. Such objects can be smart watches that connect to the Web, the weather station, cameras, energy monitoring devices, and even robots. Many industry giants such as Google and Samsung are also entering the market with connected objects and wearable devices.

On the other hand, millions of people around the world use the Arduino platform to create hardware projects. Because Arduino is so easy to use, it allows not only hobbyists, but also artists and people without a tech background to create amazing hardware projects. The platform is always evolving with new solutions that allow people to create more and more complex DIY projects.

One of the latest boards from Arduino—the Arduino Yún—mixes these two worlds harmoniously. This board's release was appreciated by hobbyists around the world who wanted to develop connected objects. Indeed, developing applications for IoT has always been quite complex and requires a lot of expertise in both hardware and web applications development. However, we are going to see why using the Arduino Yún can make the process much easier.

The Arduino Yún is the same size as the Arduino Uno, which is the most common Arduino board. However, the difference is that it features a small Linux machine that runs on a separate processor as well as an onboard Wi-Fi chip so you can connect the board to your local Wi-Fi network.
