Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


In this chapter, we work through an Internet of Things (IoT) example scenario, beginning with data collection and working through to data transmission and analysis. This example is designed to be generic to ensure that the techniques are transferable, particularly as IoT devices become more commonplace. Where possible, we utilize commodity hardware and established technologies, explaining design decisions throughout.We design and build a weather station with over ten sensors, using a variety of electronic interfaces connected to an embedded-system gateway running Linux. The data is transmitted using AMQP to a cloud-hosted Hadoop instance via a service bus. The Hadoop cluster is used to store and analyze the sensor data; some sensor data is transmitted to third-party services.
