Internet of Things, IoT

he interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data. Some Citizen Science projects detailed on this hub are using sensors and data analysts for environmental monitoring and to understand what activity may be happening in the field, for example, in a penguin burrow.

  • Cayenne 'My Devices' - provides a place to keep sensor data and monitoring of events. Whilst it is a commercial service it also allows small projects to set up an account. Learn how to do so on GitHub with 'myDevicesIoT / cayenne-docs'
  • GitHub is a software development platform, with instructions for over 777,000 open-source apps, with code and development tools.
  • GLOBE A worldwide community of students, teachers, scientists, and citizens working together to better understand, sustain, and improve Earth's environment at local, regional, and global scales. GLOBE is sponsored by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Department of State.
  • Rapspberry Pi The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed i by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries. As they are very inexpensive and small, they are ideal to coordinate IoT devices. Documentation for Raspberry Pi .
