Certification in IOT Course FAQs

Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, credit card size computer. So you can use this computation power for making IoT devices. you can connect sensors to GPIO. It will receive all the data and can analyze data collected from the sensor on the device because of its high computation power and can remain hidden because of its small size. It has inbuilt Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so you can send that data to the cloud. So it has almost all kinds of necessary ingredients to make an IoT device. It’s the best package in small size.

Raspberry Pi is a single-board microcomputer that is a pretty useful device for embedded and IoT applications. The RaspberryPi3 has onboard Wi-Fi with which you can directly connect it to the internet for sending data(eg. sensor data) and receiving data through the internet. This gives an added advantage over Arduino where you first need to interface an ESP8266 explicitly for Internet connectivity.

It also has an Ethernet adapter by which you can connect it to a router that has network connectivity for remote controlling via port forwarding. This will be difficult with other microcontrollers. All IoT applications need internet connectivity so easy access and no separate interfacing for Wi-Fi makes the coding easier.
