How to Develop Internet of Things (IOT) Applications?

The term “Internet of Things” refers to a homogeneous network that connects the real-world objects around us and exchanging information between them without human participation. The interconnection can include any kinds and combinations of cable (twisted pair, coaxial, power supply) and also wireless (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, cellular) links. Internet of Things is a popular concept in mobile software development. IoT solutions simplifies our day to day life. There are various regions for the usage of IoT. These can manage smart homes, medical facilities that automatically diagnose and also determine treatments based on the results of surveys, or logistic companies that track the real time location of their vehicle. That’s why many IT companies are focusing to this immense segment of software development and also the demand and cost of developers building the software increases. 

Here you can see Principles, stages, options to develop, tools, areas of developing IoT.

5 Main principles that you should consider before creating an application-

1. Safe collection of Data-

Data is collected outside of the usual data transmission networks with the help of special equipment. Hence it is important that this data should be safe. It is necessary to think about the ways of protecting such received information (in particular, the integrity and security of the initial settings in such devices, and mechanisms for the sensitive data encryption).

2. Organize high performance data-

Data collection system consists of many electronic devices. Hence organizing large volume of data from these devices is necessary. So consider the mechanism that can easily and effectively collect and organize the massive data.

3. Create an IoT platform-

IoT platform is a set of software tools that not only helps to collect data but also to organize it from electronic devices.

4. Develop an IoT solution in the cloud- 

Cloud storage are to ensure the quick deployment of processed data to a user device and also to organize storage. These systems can guarantee the effective operation of IoT application with minimum operating cost and requirements for carrier networks.

5. For effective data management-

Such solutions can guarantee the rapid delivery of processed results to end users even at the case of data collection devices failure.

Stages of developing an IoT application-

1. Select centralized data storage-

A cloud storage is best for accumulation, systematization and further analysis of collected data. Cloud solutions are perfect from the perspective of providing efficient data transmission over low-speed networks.

2. Develop server side data handling algorithms-

IoT applications offer extensive functionality for sorting and also analyzing the collected data. This allows for the creation of high-performance, intelligent and scalable backend.

3. Create Front-end-

Mostly all recent platforms for IoT application development allows the creation of full-featured, also user-friendly front-end application interfaces with advanced functions.

Best Options to develop IoT apps-

1. Amazon Web Services-

It is one of the largest platforms that allows for monitoring the location of goods at any stage of their deployment. To provide efficient data exchange between chips and hardware such as PCs Amazon web services are used . It is a full-fledged infrastructure of agnostic platforms. It includes file hosting, cloud computing and virtual servers also. One of the largest advantages of this is for IoT app development including increased security, flexibility and also adaptability.

2. Azure IoT Suite-

It is popular software package from Microsoft, especially developed for simple integration of information collection devices into a consolidated system for transferring, storing, analyzing and processing data. Azure IoT Suite provides access to a reliable and scalable storage bank of large volumes of information. Microsoft Azure Cloud is also supplemented with an extensive list of advanced services, including Azure IoT Hub, Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Storage, Azure Cosmos DB.

3. Oracle IoT-

It is one of the leading software solutions for the development of Internet of Things applications. Based on cloud computing technologies, applications created with Oracle IoT have a whole host of advanced capabilities, including device virtualization, high-speed messaging, endpoint management, stream processing, data enrichment, event storage, REST API support, and also enterprise connectivity. In 2017, this platform was complemented with new products: IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud, IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud, IoT Production Monitoring Cloud, and also IoT Connected Worker Cloud, designed to solve a number of business tasks and improve the process of converting data into the user-friendly form.

3. KAA IoT-

It offers very rich toolkit for developing IoT applications. KAA IoT has a lot of advanced features; among them, a well-thought-out functionality for the adjustment of mobile device compatibility, flexible management of an unlimited number of sensors for the collection of information through an SDK server, real-time sensor monitoring, cloud services, automation of software updates, and also automated user personal device settings distribution, etc.

By using the above tips, you can easily develop applications for IoT.
