Is LPC 1768 mbed Application Board suitable for IOT application ?

Hi ,

Currently exploring the a/m platform for IOT application. I understand that there is already a IOT Platform (https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/IBMEthernetKit/ ) which doesn't use LPC1768 and also it uses only Ethernet port for IOT access. Secondly, I also realised that this IOT platform uses IBM bluemix which seems easy to use but limited to 30 days.

In short, I am looking at a possibility of having a solution for simple IOT application that

1) uses LPC 1768 mbed Application Board 2) uses wifi function instead of Ethernet 3) Uses a freeware open IOT platform 4) The IOT platform must be easy to use (prefer no programming involved as I am not a software guy)

Hi,

The IBMEthernetKit example code also support the LPC1768 + mbed application board. You can simply import the program below and build it for the LPC1768 target.

https://developer.mbed.org/teams/IBM_IoT/code/IBMIoTClientEthernetExample/

The WiFi example is available here: https://developer.mbed.org/users/MACRUM/code/IBMIoTClientWifiExample/

You can use Murata Type-YD WiFi module with the mbed application board. https://developer.mbed.org/components/SNICInterface/

I hope this helps.

Dear Toyomasa,

Thanks for your reply. from what I read, it seems like I can download your wifi example and using https://developer.mbed.org/users/MACRUM/code/IBMIoTClientWifiExample/ and hardware LPC1768 + mbed application board + Murata Type-YD WiFi module, it should work. Will have to see how after I go order the parts. But meanwhile a couple of questions :

1) Where to get the wifi adapter that can fit the mbed application board? other then switchScience. Don't seems to be able to find it.

2) Possible to use other wifi module other than murata? I guess there will be some programming need to be done?

3) What is your experience using the IBM IOT platform? It seems like after 30 days, it will not be free?

Thanks, hope for your reply. :)
