Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring iOS connectivity options, part of Programming the Internet of Things with iOS.
- So far, we've only talked about using Bluetooth…and WiFi with your IOS devices.…But there are other connectivity options…beyond WiFi and Bluetooth.…For example, mesh networks.…There's a company called Pinoccio…which offers a device that comes in two different flavors.…The lead scout, the one you see over here on the left,…and the scout over here on the right.…The lead scout on the left has WiFi.…The regular scout on the right doesn't and communicates…with the lead scout in a mesh, which means,…you can have a system that has one lead scout that talks…to your WiFi router that talks to your IOS devices…and then a bunch of the Pinnoccio devices,…that's the regular scouts, that might be scattered around…an environment doing various things.…
Those black strips on the top and the bottom…of both the lead scout and the regular scout,…are IO pins so that you can connect them up…like a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino to any kind of sensors…and effectors that you want to connect up to.…There's a variety of kinds of non-RF networking.…
