SDC 2016: Our Smart Trash Can is on the Road Again

May 5 2016

Samsung shared their compelling vision for the connected future at last week’s 2016 Samsung Developer Conference, and we are proud to be a part of the conversation. It has been nearly a year since we first announced our collaboration with Samsung on the launch of their ARTIK platform. Every ARTIK board comes preloaded with the Temboo library, so building applications for the Internet of Things is simpler than ever before. Happy anniversary, Samsung!

In an SDC session on maximizing the power of ARTIK with development tools, Samsung Tech Evangelist Wei Xiao demonstrated how she created a network of smart trash cans with ARTIK and Temboo. She chose the MQTT protocol to add machine-to-machine (M2M) messaging functionality to our smart trash can IoT app. With their built in M2M capabilities, ARTIK and Temboo work hand in hand to enable developers to get up and running with complex networked applications in no time. We featured Xiao’s networked smart trash can tutorial in a previous post.

SDC 2016 isn’t the only conference our smart trash can attended this year. Samsung brought it along for the ride to both the Consumer Electronics Show and the Mobile World Congress. If you love the smart trash can as much as Samsung does, we’ll show you how to build your very own–or one of our other IoT apps (it’s easy!).

To get started developing your own applications with Temboo and Samsung ARTIK, take a look at our Samsung ARTIK tutorials.

At the 2016 Samsung Developer Conference, Samsung features a simpler way to develop for IoT with Temboo and ARTIK.

Smart Networked Trash Cans with Temboo and ARTIK

March 4 2016
Samsung and Temboo

Temboo Smart Trash Cans are a great way for developers to start getting involved and thinking about how the development and advantages of smart cities can be. At Samsung’s latest presentation at the CES and Mobile World Congress, they’ve brought to light how this can be taken even further using MQTT to network the smart trash cans and make them even smarter. With Temboo coming pre-installed in every Artik board, creating industrial and production-ready solutions like this are increasingly easier to develop.

Smart Sensors for IoT Data

January 22 2016

There are all sorts of useful applications for sensors that can connect to the cloud, from logging data to sending alerts to disseminating information. We built a connected sensor Internet of Things application that logs temperature data and sends email alerts to specified individuals when the temperature falls outside an expected range. This video explains how it works: 

Although we chose to use a temperature sensor here, any type of sensor could be used in a connected application like this one. We wired our temperature sensor to a Samsung ARTIK 10, which we programmed to email us whenever the temperature that the sensor was reading got too hot or too cold. We also created a simple PHP web app to let us update the temperature thresholds that we were using for our alerts. Check out the instructions on our website to build a connected sensor app of your own!

Machine-to-Machine to the Cloud

November 18 2015

Now you can program scalable, flexible, and production-ready distributed device applications in minutes with Temboo’s new support for M2M networks! From monitoring air quality and noise levels in urban environments to tracking cross-country shipments to controlling water usage in agricultural settings, you can use networked sensors and devices in all sorts of powerful IoT applications.

Connect your networked Samsung ARTIK, Texas Instruments, and Arduino hardware to any web service, and choose to have your gateway communicate with your edge devices using MQTT, CoAP, or HTTP. Check out this video to see it all in action!

Make Waste Management Smarter

November 13 2015

Making waste disposal more efficient can cut costs for cities while also keeping them cleaner overall. We built an Internet of Things application that makes it easy to monitor waste levels in trash bins. In this video, we show you how to build a smart trash app that monitors how full a trash can is and lets you know when it needs to be emptied.

We connected an IR distance sensor to a Samsung ARTIK 10, and attached the sensor to the lid of a trash can. Then, we programmed the ARTIK to send an alert to the sanitation department using Zendesk if the volume of trash in the can reaches a certain threshold. When the can is emptied, the ARTIK will also create an event in a Google Calendar to log the activity. Check out the instructions on our website to build a smart trash can application of your own!

Build the Industrial Internet of Things

October 28 2015

Trash cans that let you know when they’re full, production lines that can be controlled from a mobile app, and buildings that help you calculate how much you’re saving by heating them more efficiently—these are just a few of the powerful new end-to-end IoT Applications that Temboo enables you to build. From picking your hardware to generating your program code, Temboo’s dynamic, step-by-step user interface shows you how to create connected applications that will make your industry smart.

Every Temboo IoT Application includes a helpful demo video, a suggested list of materials, and an illustrated series of step-by-step instructions. Once you’ve finished setting up your application on our website, Temboo automatically generates all the application code you need, customized to fit your specifications and ready for production—you can upload it to your hardware right away, or extend and modify it to customize your application even further. Each application can run on several Temboo-integrated chipsets, from industrial SoCs to maker boards; you can select the Samsung ARTIK, Texas Instruments, or Arduino board that you are using, and we’ll continue to add more supported hardware to that list.

Take a look at our first IoT Applications, and be sure to check back as more are released!

Samsung and Temboo Join Forces

May 12 2015

This morning, we joined Samsung in introducing their new ARTIK platform at IoT World in San Francisco. Samsung’s collaboration with Temboo was announced by Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Samsung Electronics, during Samsung’s keynote presentation about their new range of IoT modules. We’ve been working together with Samsung to make it easy to connect ARTIK devices to cloud services, and every ARTIK board will ship with a Temboo library pre-installed so that developers can get to work building powerful ARTIK IoT applications right away. As with the other hardware platforms that Temboo supports, ARTIK devices can be programmed to run any of the 2000+ Choreos in the Temboo Library, stream data to the cloud, trigger and respond to web-based processes, and more.

Samsung Electronics’s Vice President of Ecosystem, Curtis Sasaki, said:

“Bringing Temboo’s technology stack to the ARTIK platform is an important part of our effort to provide developers all the tools they need to design and build a wide range of IoT devices and applications. Together, we can lower the barriers around programming IoT devices to interact with the cloud, enabling developers to build multi-functional applications in minutes.”
