Arduino IoT Cloud in public beta
Open-source hardware and software platform provider Arduino has introduced an IoT Cloud as part of its professional IoT strategy. Targeted at developers, system integrators and maker hobbyists, the Arduino IoT Cloud is an IoT application platform that enables users to develop and manage IoT applications that solve real-life problems in a business environment or in everyday life.

Convenience and flexibility were key considerations for the Arduino IoT Cloud. A major benefit is its ability to program Arduino boards, whereas previously users were required to program them via Arduino Sketch.

The Arduino IoT Cloud will quickly and automatically generate a sketch when setting up a new thing, thus enabling a developer to achieve a working device within five minutes of unboxing a board. The Arduino IoT Cloud also allows other methods of interaction, including HTTP REST API, MQTT, command-line tools, JavaScript, and WebSockets.

“Arduino now offers a complete platform with the MKR family, providing a streamlined way to create local IoT nodes and edge devices. These use a range of connectivity options and compatibility with third-party hardware, gateway, and cloud systems. The Arduino IoT Cloud allows users to manage, configure and connect not only Arduino hardware but also the vast majority of Linux-based devices – truly democratizing IoT development“, commented Massimo Banzi, CTO and Co-founder of Arduino.

To highlight how the Arduino IoT Cloud would work in tandem with the MKR family in a real-world solution, Banzi cites an agricultural example, where low power and alternative connectivity options are essential:

“Suppose we want to build an IoT greenhouse, the goal is to control this greenhouse remotely, i.e., to be able to turn on and off the lights, start the irrigation system, and read and adjust the temperature inside the greenhouse, all without the need for human intervention. The complete system can be automated and controlled using an Arduino MKR WIFI 1010 board along with the Arduino IoT Cloud."
