Raspberry Pi And The IoT In C - - Pulse Width Modulation, Servos And More
One way around the problem of getting a fast response from a microcontroller is to move the problem away from the processor. In the case of the Pi's processor there are some builtin devices that can use GPIO lines to implement protocols without the CPU being involved. In this chapter we take a close look at pulse width modulation PWM including, sound, driving LEDs and servos.
Smart home technology is intended to make our homes more more convenient to control and better protected. An unwanted side-effect is that the devices used introduce an easy way for hackers to take over. Recognizing this danger, the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has launched the IoT Home Inspector Challenge.Click For more

Just like software, it's useful to prototype and validate your IoT project quickly. Unfortunately, not all businesses have a bench of electrical engineers and embedded software developers on staff. That’s why Google has teamed up with Seeed Studio and Beagleboard.org to bring us the BeagleBone Green Wireless IoT Developer prototyping kit for Google Cloud Platform (GCP).Click For more
