Program M2M Networks using Temboo and TI’s LaunchPad kits


Have you ever thought of a great idea for an Internet of Things (IoT) application, but been stymied by having too many ‘Things’ and not enough Internet? You aren’t the only one—sometimes, it’s just too cumbersome or expensive to bring all of your sensors and devices online, especially if there are a lot of them or if they’re widely distributed. Fortunately, however, Temboo just released new machine-to-machine (M2M) programming tools to help you connect TI’s LaunchPad kits in local multi-device networks to the Internet — now, you can bring all the power and flexibility of Internet connectivity to your distributed chips and sensors without sacrificing the benefits of low power and wide distribution.

Programming and Protocols

Temboo supports three M2M protocols for handling communications among networked LaunchPad kits: MQTT, CoAP, and HTTP. Each one has different benefits and you can choose which to use based on the needs of your application. Once you’ve made your choice, Temboo’s visual programming interface enables you to automatically generate all the code you need to connect each LaunchPad kit in your network to any web service. You can also save the network configurations that you specify, making it easy to add and subtract devices or update their behavior remotely.

With Temboo M2M, you can program scalable, flexible and production-ready distributed device applications in minutes. From monitoring air quality and noise levels in urban environments to tracking cross-country shipments, to controlling water usage in agricultural settings, networked sensors and devices enable all sorts of powerful IoT applications. See it in action in this video, and then try out Temboo’s M2M programming support to connect all your networked TI LaunchPad kits to the Internet of Things!
