IoT fall detection tutorial


This project will walk through how easy it is to interface the Texas Instruments LaunchPad™ development kit with Temboo's online service to quickly prototype an Internet of things (IoT) device.  The beauty of the Temboo service is its ability to make interacting with APIs simple. Here we will use the Twilio API to create and send an SMS triggered by a change in the Educational BoosterPack™ MKII's accelerometer readings. As the user we simply have to set up an account with both Temboo and Twilio, fill in some settings and slightly modify some Temboo-generated code.
