Create a device schema on the Internet of Things Platform service on IBM Bluemix
To send messages from a smart device over IBM Bluemix to your Raspberry Pi, you need the Watson IoT™ platform.
In the previous labs, you used the Internet of Things Platform Starter boilerplate with its Node-RED environment. In this lab, you’ll reuse the Internet of Things Platform service that you used in the previous labs with Swift on iOS and with Node-RED on Raspberry Pi.
- Log in to Bluemix, find the Watson IoT Platform service from your boilerplate application (accessible from the Dashboard), and start the service. Then, click Launch dashboard.
- Select Devices and then click Add Device.
- Select the RPi3 device that you created in Lab 2.
- Enter the following new device ID:
RaspberryPi3iRobotCreate2. Save the device information for later. You will need it for the Node-RED flow on the Raspberry Pi.
You are now ready to pass commands from a smartphone to your Raspberry Pi over the MQTT protocol used by the Watson IoT Platform.
