RPi IoT Device Experiment

I plan on experimenting with a Raspberry Pi, which is set up as an IoT device (running Ubuntu Core).

The three main objectives are:

  • Environment sensor: capture the ambient air temperature and relative humidity, with this data recorded in a time series database (hosted in the cloud).
  • LCD screen: display the IP address of the ethernet interface.
  • Upgrade history: interact with the snapd daemon to retrieve the OS’ upgrade history. Present this to the user via a web app (hosted in the cloud).
