“Everything will eventually be connected to the Internet and Arduino will be our glue.” — Juliette Powell, We the Data
Will 2013 be the year of the Internet of Things? Indeed, more and more “things” around us are busy collecting data, connecting to other devices and machines via the Internet, and causing those devices and machines to act on that data. As our world becomes more automated, We the Data’s Juliette Powell surmises that the Arduino platform, developed with Atmel AVR microcontrollers, will become the “glue” behind the Internet of Things. Arduino, Powell writes, is how we humans can give something to the Internet. And the fact that Arduino is an open-source hardware platform aligns with the very basis of the Internet, architected around open-source software.
Do you agree that Arduino is the glue behind the Internet of Things?
