Ubidots and WIZnet partner for Simple Embedded IoT Solutions

February 22, 2018, Ubidots is pleased to announce its technology partnership with WIZnet, the sole innovator to patent the hardwired TCP/IP technology into a microprocessor chip back in 2001. Since then, a yearly average of 10 million WIZnet chips have been used in various embedded Internet devices worldwide and WIZnet and Ubidots have joined forces to ensure system integrators and IT innovators have not only the hardware requirements to power critical IoT applications but also the software to display, computer and visualize the sensor data in real-time.

A leader in Open Source Hardware, the WIZnet hardware solution consists of hardwired TCP/IP technology, with the Arduino Ethernet Shield that has been recognized as the de facto standard for IoT. (Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.) The complete series of WIZnet hardware makes your solution simple with the advantages of Arduino and Ubidots.

IoT Startup Weekend @ Denver

Last week we had the opportunity to sponsor the IoT Startup Weekend in Denver:

As stated in the event’s official page:

Let’s say you’ve wired up your Particle Core with some sensors and you’re able to access that data via the Internet. Awesome. But where does that data go? What does it do? That’s where Ubidots comes in. Ubidots provides the infrastructure to make sense of your sensor data. You can watch your data stream in on a real time dashboard, or trigger actions when the sensor value hits a threshold.
Ubidots will provide high usage accounts for all participants during the event, and the three winning teams will each get free starter plan subscriptions for 1 year.
Thanks to the event’s organizers for counting us in.
Btw, if you’re new to IoT, find the closest IoT or Makers event near you. It’s possibly the best way to get started!

Live Tracking the International Space Station

During last october’s Python Boston User meetup, we put together this simple but fun project. Because this was a software meet up -not a hardware one- my goal was to read some already-available realtime data and make sense of it through the Ubidots service.

Luckily I found this service made possible by Nathan Bergey which updates the ISS position in real-time. By reading its live data we are able to measure the distance between the ISS and Boston, and then post the whole data to Ubidots
