Building IoT prototypes can be fun

The age of makers When I was 10, I was fascinated by electronics and robotics. I remember dismantling my old electro-mechanical toys in order to reuse some of their parts, and combining them to Lego blocks to build my own prototypes. Unfortunately, this was mainly basic tinkering that never really lead to something working. I think that one of the main obstacles to this was that, understanding as well as manipulating electronic components, was quite complicated for kids, even when resorting to dedicated electronic kits (such as “Science Fair electronic project kits”). This was a long time ago and since,...

Build Connected Health applications with scriptr.io and Withings

About Connected Health Connected health is a new model for health management that leverages technology to deliver care outside of traditional health care settings. While the demands on health and social care services are increasing, notably because of a growing and ageing population, cost of medical treatments are rising whereas health and social budgets are more and more constrained. Technology can provide interesting and cost-effective solutions to the aforementioned concerns, by: Improving the education of patients who have easy access to quality information, which helps in offloading health professionals, Enabling remote and near real-time monitoring and processing of patient...

Get insights on your Nest devices’ data

About this tutorial Nest’s smart thermostats are self learning devices: they remember your preferences and settings and use them to build a personalized schedule, so you do not have to program it yourself. On another hand, these thermostats are not very talkative when it comes to their historical data (e.g. recorded temperature and humidity levels). To obtain the latter the end user can either wait for the Nest Home Report, which is more geared toward consumption facts, or go through the APIs (which is not really an option for a non programmer). In the remainder of this tutorial, we...

Implement apps with Carvoyant and scriptr.io: getting started

About this tutorial The scriptr.io team has implemented a connector to simplify and streamline the way developers access Carvoyant’s APIs from scriptr.io. Using a few native objects, developers can directly access cars’ data from within their scripts and thus, create sophisticated IoT applications and processes around connected vehicles. In this tutorial, you will learn how to sign-up to scriptr.io (if not already done) and write your first script to get familiar with the web IDE. Once this is done, we will see how to check-out the carvoyant connector from Github into your scriptr.io workspace then we will start implementing...

Connected vehicles with Carvoyant and scriptr.io

If you are looking forward to implement the next great IoT application for connected vehicles, Carvoyant and scriptr.io have what you need. Carvoyant is a connected car platform that allows applications to be built around connected cars without being concerned as to how the car is connected. Carvoyant focuses exclusively on a connected car API that allows developers to retrieve data collected by a Carvoyant device, simply plugged into cars. Applications built using Carvoyant can be accessed by other drivers to broaden distribution and extract the maximum value of the data flow. At scriptr.io, we really like what Carvoyant...
