The goal of this teaching kit is to enable anyone to create Internet of Things Robots! Digital literacy is an important topic that everyone should learn. Our world is increasingly build out of devices that are programmed. If you don’t know how to create them, you are stuck only being able to consume other people’s ideas. This kit was made possible through support from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority’s (CIRA) Community Investment Program.
One of the most common tasks is to build a web page that sends signals to the Particle board to activate functions.
This example shows how a web page can act as a score board for a Particle-controlled game.
A web page can be set up to show the current state of cloud-exposed variables on the Particle. Useful for monitoring the state of sensors.
If This Then That is a flexible, graphical system for combining triggers (the "If") with actions ("That"). There are a wide range of triggers and actions, and in this example, data from the Particle is sent to IFTTT and then stored in a Google Spreadsheet.
