January 16th, 2018 – Ubidots and BigClown are thrilled to announce an affordable (and educational) hardware and software solution for makers, innovators, explorers, and educators alike. BigClown and Ubidots were both born from the maker community with innovation not only being a prerequisite but the mission!
The term IoT, short for the Internet of Things, is becoming quite popular as businesses and individuals continue to incorporate internet connected devices into their lives. Amazon’s Alexa is an IoT device as is your smart phone. These commercial products already number in the millions, but the largest growth of IoT expansion can be found outside these personal experiences and in our chairs, washing machines, streetlights, factory floors, oceans, and beyond. When referencing IoT, it is becoming increasing difficult to navigate all language, acronyms, and 1,000s of platforms all vying for your attention. To alleviate this headache, Ubidots put together an elementary infographic to help guide the development of any IoT solution. Sure, this is a rudimentary description of an industry driving the next evolution of business and personal efficiency, but with this infographic focused on How IoT Works help you better understand the steps and immediate questions to ask when building any IoT solution.
Ubidots and Zerynth partner embedded solutions with data analytics, and visualizations for your IoT applications.
Ubidots is pleased to announce its technology partnership with Zerynth, providers of a suite of professional development tools that support Python or hybrid C/Python firmware development for 32-bit microcontrollers and the most common development boards: ESP32 and ESP8266, Arduino DUE and MKR1000, ST Nucleo, Particle Photon and Electron, Flip&Click, Quail, and more. Zerynth was created to simplify the access to the embedded world, and with the Ubidots-Zerynth integration, firmware developers can now connect their designs to the cloud in just a few lines of Python.Continue reading “Ubidots Announces Embedded Technology Partnership with Zerynth”
Ubidots and Controllino partner for affordable Industrial IoT Solutions without the headache.
Ubidots is thrilled to welcome Controllino to the Ubidots ecosystem of device manufacturers and providers. We have been playing around with countless devices these past few years and the Controllino is just simply amazing. This industrial PLC device is freely programmable to your needs and specifications and is based on the Arduino open source software technology to tailor the MINI, MAXI, and MEGA Controllino boards to tackle the shop floor’s most desirable data collection and automation needs.
Single Board Computers (SBCs) are weaving their way into even the most sophisticated of Smart Factories — and they just might save you some serious cash.
Also called “MiniPC”, a Single Board Computer is exactly what it sounds like: the core elements of a desktop or industrial gateway (input / output, microprocessing, memory), but in a single, self-contained board. A low-cost, self-service complement to industrial gateways, SBCs allow IT and control engineering teams to create custom-built solutions for themselves.
Ubidots and Sigfox partner for super-low energy, long-distance asset tracking and data transmission solutions
Sigfox takes you where cellular cannot–with less energy consumption and lower cost for data transmission. With a unique approach to wireless connectivity, Sigfox uses an optimized communications protocol to cleanly transmit your device’s data to Ubidots.
Ubidots is excited to join the Sigfox ecosystem as an IoT Platform Provider. Navigating the IoT ecosystem to find an affordable device-to-cloud solution for your IoT initiatives is an exhausting process. But, with the Ubidots and Sigfox partnership, developers, businesses, and System Integrators can turn to the Sigfox ecosystem, select a device that suits their application, and easily forward its sensor data to Ubidots.
Ubidots and Digital Matter partner to power smarter, faster telematics and GPS solutions.
If you work in transportation, or have an affinity for taking the back roads, you’ve likely experienced GPS failure: this app is telling me my truck is…where?
Digital Matter (DM) is here to make tracking tools better — providing smarter, ultra-reliable white-label GPS tracking and telematics devices for resellers in the the fleet, logistics, and communications industries. And through a new partnership with Ubidots, you can now easily connect your DM devices to the Ubidots’ cloud and application builder, and create a complete GPS or telematics application in just a few hours.
Ubidots’ app builder and Hologram.io’s cellular network are combining forces to bring you a complete IoT development toolkit
Dear tinkerers, we’ve got more free tools to add to your toolkit. For your next IoT project, you can send and receive data through Hologram’s global cellular connectivity—and easily set up custom visualizations through Ubidots’ application builder. For free!
Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes when you make an emergency call? When you dial the local emergency line in Medellín, Colombia, a medical team of 3—a doctor and 2 pre-hospital care technicians—work under immense time pressure to determine the care needed, and dispatch the nearest appropriately equipped ambulance in a matter of minutes.
