Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) is a sprawling set of technologies and use cases that has no clear, single deenition. One workable view frames IoT as the use of network-connected devices, embedded in the physical environment, to improve some existing process or to enable a new scenario not previously possible. These devices, or things, connect to the network to provide information they gather from the environment through sensors, or to allow other systems to reach out and act on the world through actuators. They could be connected versions of common objects you might already be familiar with, or new and purpose-built devices for functions not yet realized. They could be devices that you own personally and have on your person or in your home, or they could be embedded in factory equipment, or part of the fabric of the city you live in. Each of them is able to convert valuable information from the real world into digital data that provides increased visibility into how your users interact with your products, services, or applications. The speciic use cases and opportunities across different industries are numerous, and in many ways the world of IoT is just getting started. What emerges from these scenarios is a set of common challenges and patterns. IoT projects have additional dimensions that increase their complexity when compared to other cloud-centric technology applications, including: Diverse hardware Diverse operating systems and software on the devices Different network gateway requirements This guide explains the elements you can combine with Google Cloud Platform to build a robust, maintainable, end-to-end IoT solution on Cloud Platform.
