AVNET's iotconnect.io cloud platform is an online service that you can use to send data to, and then show it on a dashboard. In this blog series I'm learning the Python SDK and integrating BLE devices.
In this post: what do I want to achieve, and what will I need to get there?
I got a kit from Avnet with a SmartEdge IIOT Gateway and an ON Semiconductor RSL10 BLE sensor kit.
The SmartEdge and the RSL10 are preloaded with an example specific for this combination.
My goal is to understand the example, evaluate the solution and extend it.
I've played with the Python sample code that runs on the SmartEdge and understand most of it by now.
My first posts will focus on the SDK part that gets the device provisioned on the iotconnect.io cloud.
I learned something new while investigating: how to remotely debug a Python script running on a Linux box with Visual Studio.
Just like the standard Python SDK example that is pre-installed on SmartEdge IIOT Gateways, this example uses TPM (Trusted Platform Module) security.
I'll review how that works in a breakout post.
If I do everything correctly, my board will appear on this map and the data measured by the RSL10 sensors will be available...
