Course description

Build Your First Internet of Things (IoT) Application on Arm

Arm technology powered the smartphone revolution, and now it’s helping power the Internet of Things (IoT). This online course will provide beginners with an accelerated path to gain the knowledge necessary to thrive in a world transformed by innovations in IoT.

You’ll start your learning journey in this course by understanding the fundamentals of IoT, but quickly move to practical projects that will teach you the essentials of building Arm-based IoT applications.

For example, our labs will teach you the basics of device management for Arm-based IoT solutions - how to develop programs to control peripherals and sensors on a microcontroller and how to transmit this data to mobile and cloud-based applications using Bluteooth and Wi-Fi.

Given that mobile computing platforms are where IoT often happens, we’ll also give you a basic understanding of Android application design, so you can integrate your mobile device into your IoT applications.

In the final lab exercise, you’ll complete the course by creating an activity tracker that uses simple heuristic modelling to predict different classes of activities.
