Android IoT Device Client

The "Internet of Things" is a catchy way of describing the variety of devices connected through the Internet. This includes webcams, wearable tech like the Pebble and Android Wear watches, car sensors, appliances, and even rudimentary robots. With the Internet of Things (IoT), you can manipulate them from the web.

Nowadays a new emerging technology is Internet of Things (IoT): this post describes how to create Internet of things with Android . In IoT project, all the physical objects (things) are connected together using internet infrastructure.

OUR SKILLS MATRIX:

Aligning the skills of current IT professionals with the Internet of Things is becoming a challenge as the IoT evolves with new capabilities and produces changing conditions. According to VisionMobile, there are currently only 300,000 developers contributing to the IoT but 4.5 million will be needed by 2020. A lack of IoT skills and knowledge is a major concern and may be one of the biggest obstacles to adopting and using the IoT effectively.

1. Security and Data Analytics
With the millions of devices connected to the Internet of Things, comes massive amounts of data that need to be analyzed and protected. Skilled engineers, architects and analysts will be needed to gather and process the information.

Skills and Knowledge Needed:
  • Vulnerability assessment
  • Public key infrastructure (PKI) security
  • Ethical hacking
  • Wireless network security
  • Knowledge of data ethics and privacy policy
  • Securely managing data
  • Cybersecurity analysis

2. Business Intelligence
All of the data collected through the IoT can and should be turned into actionable intelligence for businesses. Therefore, professionals with a strong knowledge in data analysis, Big Data applications and business acumen will be in high demand.

Skills and Knowledge Needed:
  • Sensor data analysis
  • Data center management
  • Predictive analytics
  • Programming on Hadoop and NoSQL
  • Strong business acumen

3. UI / UX Design
IoT objects will come in all shapes and sizes and User Interface and User Experience professionals will be needed to create interfaces that are effective and user-friendly.

Skills and Knowledge Needed:
  • Responsive Web Design (visuals adjust to screen size, platform, and orientation)
  • Service Design (approach is human-based that guides users through complex items)

4. Mobile/Remote Development
When mentioning the word “mobile”, most everyone thinks of a smartphone, but with the IoT, a mobile device can mean a whole lot more. Anything that is connected could be considered mobile, such as a car, which creates a whole new ecosystem of devices that will require new skills. Remote devices also have similar challenges – such as a submersible monitor that collects marine data. One can imagine the many new challenges such an environment presents. Many IoT objects will be controlled through mobile devices which will drive demand for software developers including Apple iOS and Android developers.

Skills and Knowledge Needed:
  • Experience developing apps that communicate with external hardware and sensors.
  • Testing devices on newer and more advanced platforms

5. Hardware Engineering
IoT devices can be simple, tiny devices on a telephone pole or complex remote computers or sensors located in adverse climates. The range of requirements is vast and the hardware engineering challenges mirror the uniqueness of these devices which subsequently push the limits of hardware design and implementation.

Skills and Knowledge Needed:
  • Developing and installing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other connectivity solutions
  • AutoCAD drafting
  • Computer-aided design (CAD)
  • Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) engineering
  • Wireless sensor design
  • Quality assurance
  • Sensor technology
  • Embedded software

6. Networking
A large number of ways to send and collect data are created with all of the embedded sensors utilized in IoT objects that communicate to one another. A reliable and secure avenue of traffic is vital, therefore electrical and network engineering skills will be essentials for the IoT. Existing, open and standard networking technologies imbedded in IoT devices/infrastructures is the goal and will drive the skills requirements.

Skills and Knowledge Needed:
  • Knowledge of current networking standards and technologies
  • Deploying and troubleshooting modern networks
  • Knowledge of wireless (WPA/WEP or 3G/4G) connections,
  • Applying and managing RFID (radio frequency identification)
  • Wireless protocols like Bluetooth Low Energy.

TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES:

Android Things is an IoT platform that helps build connected devices, leveraging Android software, and paired with the company’s cloud-based services, and can be used for allowing devices that can be allowed to connect with the Internet as well as other gadgets to enhance functionality.

There is a much greater push towards smart gadgets that can talk to each other, and form a sort of a mesh that allows you to control functionality over the web, remotely. The problem with IoT at present is that there are far too many individual platforms, and that confuses consumers and also means there is hardly any interoperability.
The are so many developer tools which we are using at OdiTek are listed below.

Eclipse IoT Project
The Eclipse Foundation has a long list of IoT-related projects that include standards and development frameworks. The project also offers a wealth of videos, tutorials, sandboxes and other tools to help new IoT developers get started on their first projects.

KinomaJS
The Kinoma platform encompasses both hardware and software tools for prototying IoT devices and applications. KinomaJS, its JavaScript-based application framework, is available under an open source license. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X

M2MLabs Mainspring
Based on Java and the Apache Cassandra NoSQL database, Mainspring describes itself as "an open source application framework for building machine to machine (M2M) applications such as remote monitoring, fleet management or smart grid." Features include flexible device modeling, device configuration, communication between devices and applications, data validation and normalization, long-term data storage and data retrieval. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X

Node-RED
This "visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things" simplifies the process of connect IoT devices with APIs and online services. It is built on Node.js and includes a browser-based flow editor. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X
