Google IoT Core Workshop: From Provisioning to Data Visualization

UST Room #419

8:00 am - 10:00 am

Hardware & Cloud

How This Fits Into IoT

The world of IoT often focuses on the provisioning of devices and connecting those devices to your IT ecosystem, and those are valuable activities, but what do you do with that data once you have collected it.

Google Cloud IoT Core provides the ability to securely provision and collect data from IoT devices, but it also provides an entry point to the larger data analytics ecosystem of Google Cloud.

What Attendees Do

We will hand out Raspberry Pi devices provisioned with Raspbian OS. The attendees will provision this device to Google’s IoT Core Service and will walk through several use cases to understand the capabilities of secure bi-directional communication between IoT Devices and Google’s Cloud Platform.

After collecting data from the device and other simulated devices the attendees will also work with the data analytics capabilities of the Google Cloud Platform to understand how insights can be derived from the data collected from IoT Devices.
