I’d like to welcome you to the second episode of our new series of videos and guides, designed to help you learn about and make your very own connected objects This is Adafruit and Digi-Key’s ALL THE INTERNET OF THINGS – a six-part series, covering everything you need to know about the Internet of Things (which we will shorten to IoT). For our second guide, we’ll go over the most popular protocols used in the IoT industry, as well as the upsides and downsides of each type of protocol to help you decide what you’ll use to connect your devices to the internet and exchange data. In TRANSPORTS we talked about – “How to Get From Your Device to the Internet” – POWER, DISTANCE, AND BITS.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
