BeagleBone Wireless Internet-Of-Things (IoT) Developer Prototyping Kit for Google Cloud Platform

Posted by Industry News on

Seeed Studio BeagleBone Green Wireless IOT Developer Prototyping Kit for Google Cloud Platform

Since the arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT), many developers feel the urge to build a thing or two to introduce the IoT capabilities into their business or operating environment. Unfortunately, the lack of available hardware elements and reliable development platforms has long been an issue.

Seeed Studio has worked with Google and BeagleBoard.org to provide a fitting solution, which resulted in the introduction of an IoT developer prototyping kit for the Google Cloud Platform. The BeagleBone Wireless Internet-Of-Things (IoT) Developer Prototyping Kit for Google Cloud Platform collects various types of sensors and actuators that are used in numerous internet-equipped devices. All the sensor and actuator modules feature plug-and-play capabilities and are fully compatible with the new BeagleBone Green Wireless Board, which is the fundamental element in this kit.

The kit includes:

  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) added on the original BeagleBone Green
  • A fully Open Hardware design
  • Two integrated Grove connectors for quick prototyping without soldering or breadboarding
  • Onboard SD card slot for storage extensions
  • Built-in PRU real-time co-processor that is well suited for specific industrial protocols
  • Up to 65 digital I/Os and analog-to-digital converters that are key for IoT prototyping situations

The kit also comes with a Grove base cape that can be attached directly onto the BeagleBone Board Green Wireless to provide plug-and-play experiences with the Grove modules.

IoT Hackers Handbook: An Ultimate Guide to Hacking the Internet of Things and Learning IoT Security

IoT Hackers Handbook: An Ultimate Guide to Hacking the Internet of Things and Learning IoT Security

2017 has seen IoT devices being hacked like never before. We have seen attacks such as the Mirai Botnet, vulnerabilities in popular cars, hacking of IoT rifles, attackers taking advantage of smart toys and the list goes on. 

Everything is getting connected like never-before, yet, security is one of the last thoughts during the product launch stage for most of the manufacturers. 

This book can be treated as a technical journey into mistakes which manufacturers make while building IoT devices, or the so-called “smart things”. 

IoT Hackers Handbook is written in a beginner-friendly way covering everything from the extreme basics and then using exercises and labs to have the readers learn-by-doing. 

Some of the contents that are covered in the book include: 

  • Embedded Device Exploitation Firmware Exploitation and Emulation 
  • Hardware communication protocols – UART, SPI etc. 
  • JTAG debugging and exploitation 
  • Software Defined Radio, ZigBee and BLE Exploitation 

After reading the book, you will be able to understand the various security vulnerabilities crippling the Internet of Things devices, and how you can play a major role in identifying these security issues, thus making the IoT ecosystem safer.
