Make an IoT wearable t-shirt that sparkles with data using MQTT and Ably

Make an internet connected t-shirt with LEDs that respond to realtime data In summary: We will make a wearable, flexible LED array which will change colour in realtime as users draw on an app. It uses the Ably MQTT broker and the Ably Javascript SDK along with addressible RGB LEDs and an Adafruit wifi enabled microprocessor. We change the colour of individual LEDs sewn on the t-shirt, by sending realtime updates data with Ably's messaging platform to an Arduino via MQTT.

Accelerating Digital Transformation with IoT

If your business is in the process of digital transformation, IoT technology may be factoring into your plans. IoT gives organizations across industries new opportunities to foster a more direct connection with customers. It lets them collect new data, turn that data into insights, and then turn insights into action. IoT has become so prevalent that companies in most industries can’t afford to put off adopting it.

Driving Digital Twin adoption with LC/NC App development for IoT

In the age of a new normal, remote monitoring and control have become a necessity across the enterprise. The prominence of IoT extends beyond its traditional purpose of sense and integration, evolving to complete end-to-end Enterprise Digital applications that represent physical assets, processes, and environment as a replica in a virtual representation.

Accelerating Insight and Uptime: Predictive Maintenance

Historically, maintenance has been driven by a preventative schedule. Today, preventative maintenance, where actions are performed regardless of actual condition, is giving way to Predictive, or Condition-Based, maintenance, where actions are based on actual, real-time insights into operating conditions. While both are far superior to traditional Corrective maintenance (action only after a piece of equipment fails), Predictive is by far the most effective.

Top 7 IoT Tools & Platforms for App Development

The connected reality of gadgets presented by the Internet of Things (IoT) can no longer be considered as just a buzz as it has already transformed our living to a great extent. The connected things made our homes, workplaces, and transportation smarter. No wonder IoT apps are now one of the most popular app categories. As the latest statistics reveal, the global market share of IoT apps is expected to touch a whopping 520 billion USD by the end of 2021.

How to Visualize & Accelerate Digital Twins IoT Development

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way we physically and digitally interact in the world. With the global IoT market projected to reach nearly $2 trillion by 2028, developers are looking for ways to take advantage of the increasing demand and gain a cutting edge. For many teams, IoT development combined with using digital twins for verification allows them to make better decisions during development and visually market their devices after launch. How?

The 4 keys to a successful manufacturing IIOT pilot

If you have read our previous post focusing on the challenges of planning, launching and scaling IIOT use cases, you’ve narrowed down the business problems you’re trying to solve, and you have a plan that is both created by the implementation team and supported by executive management. Here’s a plan to make sure you’ve got it all down. Think of these success factors like the legs of a kitchen table and the results that you desire, a bowl of homemade chicken soup.

Pushing Past Pilot Paralysis to Launch and Scale IIOT Use Cases

With billions of industrial IoT (IIOT) devices in place, generating massive volumes of data from “the edge,” the potential for proof of concept success for use cases in the factory can be paralyzing. While the value of this digital revolution, aka Industry 4.0, is clear, realizing the full promise has been slow. Research and real-life experience from Accenture shows that many manufacturers get stuck early on or can’t get beyond proof-of-concept pilots to scale.

APIs and IoT: Generating Increased Connectivity for Your Organization

Anything that can be connected will be connected. This is the ultimate goal of technology. Connections with new objects and devices open the door for big data and new insights. It’s a branch of technology long in the making, with just a few hiccups. But advances in API technology aim to address these concerns and advance the IoT into a new era.

Introducing DreamFactory's MQTT Service

MQTT is a communication protocol for the publish-subscribe architecture. You can use DreamFactory as a MQTT client for your IoT projects. It’s easy to connect to any MQTT-based message broker using DreamFactory and easily publish and subscribe to any topic. DreamFactory’s MQTT client service is native to the platform, supporting role-based access controls, live API documentation, and more.
