Avoid the chaos of GDPR in the realm of IoT

Interpretation of GDPR in IoT devices - Man holding Ipad

Faced with stricter regulations on data processing under the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and a growing demand for IoT-functionality within the field of consumer devices, companies now have an important decision to make when it comes to choosing the correct IoT platform. In this blog post, we’ll boil it down to just one […]

IoT trends to look out for in 2019

Hand shows the numbers 2019 emerging from the network connections.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at an exponential rate and being embraced by companies in every sector. Increasingly, IoT technology is providing practical solutions and operational enhancements in both industry and commerce. Gartner predicts that the amount of IoT connected devices will jump from 8 to 20 billion between 2018 and 2020. Here […]

P2P IoT vs. Database-driven IoT – which one to choose?

Image of App access to iot devices

Database-driven IoT is when data from the IoT device travels to a centralized server that stores and process the data in a cloud database, as you can see in the illustration above. A use-case could be the current temperature from a thermostat. In this use-case, the thermostat measures the temperature via a sensor and sends […]

Secure P2P remote control of ESP32 WiFi FreeRTOS based Module with AppMyProduct

The ESP32 is a powerful WiFi module from the creators of the successful ESP8266 low-cost WiFi module, Espressif. The creators has released the ESP-IDF (Iot Development Framework) which is a FreeRTOS based core for the module that you can plug your own code and modules into. The ESP32 module is a dual protocol hybrid with […]

CC3200 Two-Way Audio with Android

Texas Instrument’s CC3200 is a single-chip microcontroller unit with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, created for the Internet of Things. It can run the FreeRTOS operating system and provides a hardware encryption engine. Sounds interesting? It did to us! So we created a demo that is capable of streaming two-way audio between the CC3200 and an Android […]

App My Pi – AppMyProduct Heat Control Demo on Your Raspberry Pi

Have you ever wanted to connect and remote control an embedded device in real-time, like for example your Raspberry Pi? Are you concerned about the security of your communication, but still want to quickly develop high-quality apps? With our IoT application platform AppMyProduct we provide the solution for you! To give you an impression, we […]

STM32F746G-DISCO Board with FreeRTOS + AppMyProduct

This is an updated version of a previous post incorporating our new AppMyProduct platform. When working with STM32 ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers, the free embedded software STM32Cube from ST provides all necessary drivers and a collection of middleware components to reduce the initial development effort. One of the mentioned middleware components is the popular FreeRTOS real-time operating system Nabto is […]

ESP8266 WiFi Module + AppMyProduct

This is an updated version of a previous post incorporating our new AppMyProduct platform. The ESP8266 is a low-cost WiFi module that can be programmed directly like a microcontroller. Already thinking of your next Internet of Things project? While an available Arduino library allows a quick start, there is still one problem to overcome: How […]

The Roomba (Part 2 of 2)

Please read Part 1 to read about the preliminary steps in the Roomba saga. This part will be the fun part where we turn the Roomba into a fully fledged remote controlled vehicle fitted with realtime video feed as well! If at any time you feel like trying this yourself, you can sign up for a free […]

The Roomba (Part 1 of 2)

As some of you might have seen on twitter we had a device laying around at the Nabto headquarters with Nabto written all over it. [tweet https://twitter.com/nabto_com/status/735109173466267650 align=’center’] Today is the grand reveal of our Roomba hack! Like the CoffeePi this project was rather substantial so the Roomba hack will be split in two parts. […]
