IoT (“internet of things”) is a major buzz word these days, but ever wondered what it means or how it works? Learn about how IoT really works by building a simple mobile application that turns on a light when you just walk near it! During this project you will build a simple mobile phone application that tracks your location using beacons. This app will signal a raspberry pi to turn on or off a lightbulb through AWS IoT. When we are done you should not only understand how IoT works but you will also learn how to build a simple mobile phone application, use a Raspberry Pi and see some of what you can do with a beacon.
