In 2005 Limor “Ladyada” Fried founded Adafruit in her dorm room, dedicated to making electronics accessible to everyone, and to open source principles such as sharing information. Over ten years the company has grown into one of the largest and most popular sources for electronics kits, tools, and tutorials. Now Adafruit is approaching the Internet of Things with the same open principles, and is introducing the Adafruit.IO service to help people interact with their creations over the internet.
A crucial part of the Internet of Things is user trust, and in 2013 Limor contributed a proposal for an Internet of Things Bill of Rights to the New Yorks Times Room for Debate series on the Internet of Things. The principles in this Internet of Things Bill of Rights included:
Similar to how the United States Bill of Rights outlined the basic liberties of its citizens, defining an Internet of Things Bill of Rights is an important step in building user trust and growing the IoT.
This talk will introduce the Adafruit.IO service and show how it’s built on the principles of the Internet of Things Bill of Rights. Adafruit.IO can can easily bring data on line from platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black and more, using open protocols and software. We’ll show examples of Adafruit.IO, such as graphing sensor data and controlling devices over the internet.
