Connect LEGO Mindstorm EV3 to IBM IoT platform over MQTT

Learn how to connect LEGO Mindstorm EV3 robot (with WiFi adapter) to IBM Watson IoT Platform, how to control movement and speech from NodeRed, and how you can use L-TEK Firefly sensors to trigger robot actions defined on NodeRed.

Getting started with the IBM Edge Analytics SDK in Watson IoT Platform

Learn how to use the SDK for carrying out data filtering operations with Edge Analytics. See the flow involved and use the sample SDK application on any Edge Gateway device that supports the Java platform.

Use Weather Company Data in your IoT project

Learn how to use Node-RED and data from the Weather Company in your IoT projects. With a server application running on Bluemix, you use the IoT Platform Starter service to provide weather data to a Raspberry Pi client app.

Geofencing with IOT, IBM Geospatial Analytics and Mapbox

Learn how to build your own geofence GUI to draw and manage geofences. This recipe uses standard components on IBM Bluemix. Node-Red is used to handle IoT location events, and a mobile-enabled web GUI generates location events from your phone.

Connecting your device with IBM Watson IoT using a ThingPark LoRaWAN network

Using the LPWA IoT technology to enable device-to-cloud communications, in this recipe learn how to provision a new device on a LoRaWAN network powered by ThingPark, and configure ThingPark to automatically push all device data to your own IBM Watson IoT service.

Visualize sentiment analysis for received emails using LED lights

Visualize with LED lights the result of sentiment analysis performed on unread emails by NodeRED in IBM Watson IoT Platform. The LED lights are controlled by an Arduino MKR1000 board, which retrieves the sentiment score and changes the light accordingly.

Automating Device Diagnostics, Updates and Quick fixes

Diagnose issues with devices, perform updates and reboots, and automate the whole process on the Watson IoT Platform.

Integrate IBM Watson IoT Platform with IBM Predictive Maintenance and Quality

Identify problem hot spots and their solutions by integrating these two products to receive data from devices, analyze the data in real time, create work orders in Maximo, and send recommendations back to Watson IoT Platform.

Handling Alerts and Device Actions with Edge Analytics in IBM Watson IoT Platform

Picking up where the "Getting Started with Edge Analytics in Watson IoT Platform" recipe left off, learn how to define the edge rule that publishes an alert to the edge gateway for device action.
