Course summary

You should now understand how to use the IBM Watson IoT Platform to create and deploy applications that are connected to devices such as a Raspberry Pi and an iRobot.


More specifically, you should know how to:

  • Connect a Node-RED application to a virtual temperature sensor
  • Connect a Raspberry Pi to a Node-RED application to read the temperature from the device
  • Deploy the Node-RED application on IBM Bluemix
  • Add social service notifications to a Twitter account
  • Add a Cloudant database to your Node-RED flows to store and analyze image data
  • Create a UI in Swift and Xcode to show temperature data
  • Optionally, add a RaspCam camera to the Raspberry Pi and send pictures to the Cloudant database on Bluemix
  • Use the Watson Visual Recognition service to analyze images from the camera or the Internet
  • Create a voice user interface to invoke commands on the Raspberry Pi
  • Optionally, configure communication between an iRobot and the Raspberry Pi
