AWS IoT with Raspberry Pi
AWS IoT provides the cloud services that help to connect your IoT devices to other devices with the help of AWS cloud services. AWS IoT enables device software that can help you integrate your IoT devices into AWS IoT-based solutions, secure data and interactions, process and act upon device data, enables applications to interact with devices.
This guide illustrates the capabilities of AWS IoT Core; we are going to build an instance with Raspberry Pi and APDS 9301 light sensor for measuring luminous flux per unit area with it. Then we demonstrate how to set up and configure Raspberry pi and AWS IoT Core. Finally, we will publish sensor data to the AWS IoT server using the MQTT protocol.
To learn more about MQTT and how it works, follow our guide on the topic:
Let's start by setting up some prerequisites for the project.
