View your chipKIT variables via the Ubidots Cloud

The chipKIT embedded platform is a great starting point for developing Internet of Things applications. But how do you store and work with the data that your application collects? With the cloud-based Ubidots platform, you can collect and store your data as “dots.” Every time your device sends a value to their cloud, a “dot” is created. Ubidots offers a free “Maker Plan” which allows you to collect 30,000 “dots” per month.

To get you started, they have created some chipKIT-based application tutorials:

The tutorial we’re sharing today is a follow-on post to the Local Temp with chipKIT and Raspberry Pi post, and is an example of how you can take the previous tutorial to the next level.

So, you’ve collected the temperature data via the chipKIT uC32 and the Basic I/O Shield, you’ve sent the data to the Raspberry Pi, but now what do you do with it? This tutorial will show you how to take that data and publish it to the cloud, the Exosite cloud to be sure! For more information on how to create your own IoT application, see a previous post about Exosite, a company that makes connecting devices, networks, and users a breeze via their cloud-based data platform.
