The Internet of Things (IoT, sometimes called Internet of Everything or Internet of Objects) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data with the operator and/or other connected devices. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.

In our case, we will study the IoT from the android point of view, and in a localized area (the wireless sensor lab, C6 in the Merchinson campus of Napier University). We will develop several projects, having for aim to communicate from an Android smartphone (phone) to another device (smartphone, server or object).
The projects will go from easy to more complex, with the goal to, in the end, set up some examples of application.
The description of our project will be split into three parts. Just click below on the part you are interested in to be redirected.
