How to collect and analyze sensing data of IoT platform

This post shows how to connect IoT platform to Cloud service and how to display sensing data for graphical analysis.
* Scope of post
* Platform : WIZwiki-W7500
* cloud data loger : data.sparkfun.com (Phant.io)
* cloud chart : analog.io
* IDE; Web-Compiler(mbed.com)
* HTTP Query

  • What is Phant?
    • Phant is a open source cloud server platform by powered Sparkfun Electronics.
    • Sparkfun created data.spartfun.com ,which is a free cloud service running phant. –
    • To collect data from your device to cloud service, you just need to register a new stream.
    • After register, you get two keys for accessing the data; one is q private key is required to update that stream, other is a public key grants access to any other stream on the service.
    • All communication with Phant is carried out over HTTP. So, your device should be acted as HTTP Client.

  • Phant : Phant.io

    Phant is a modular node.js based data logging tool for collecting data from the Internet of Things. It is the open source software that powers data.sparkfun.com, and is actively maintained by SparkFun Electronics. Phant is short for elephant. Elephants are known for their remarkable recall ability, so it seemed appropriate to name a data logging project in honor of an animal that never forgets.

analog.io

  • 3rd party of data.sparkfun.com
  • Graphing front end
    >analog.io is a full stack IoT web service and hardware platforms where people can create connected devices and share them with the world. It is designed to solve all kinds of world problems from air pollution, improving farm output or studying the bee population. It is really only limited by the users imagination. (for more detail)
