MediaTek Labs announced a MediaTek LinkIt™ ONE and Grove IoT Starter Kit Powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Suited for developers, the new Starter Kit includes the MediaTek LinkIt ONE, one of the world’s most connected platforms, and a range of Grove sensors from Seeed Studio to help customers bring their ideas to life in IoT. AWS provides a complete cloud services and cloud management portfolio that will give IoT developers using LinkIt ONE fast, flexible, secure and stable access to the cloud.
The MediaTek LinkIt ONE SDK (for Arduino) includes libraries that have been certified to run AWS IoT Services in order to create software for the LinkIt ONE board using the popular Arduino IDE, and connect it to one of the world’s biggest commercial cloud services. A range of Grove sensors easily plug into the LinkIt ONE, allowing developers to securely store and manage all the sensor data from their IoT devices in the cloud using AWS.
The Grove sensors contained within this new IoT Starter Kit include a 3-Axis Digital Accelerometer (+16g), Loudness Sensor, Light Sensor, Moisture Sensor, Touch Sensor, Temperature Sensor as well as a Grove Base Shield, LED Bar and 1.12 inch OLED Display. AWS IoT Services enable secure, bi-directional communication between internet-connected things — sensors, actuators, devices, applications — and the cloud over MQTT and HTTP.
“MediaTek Labs is committed to bringing IoT to the masses by providing a simplified solution to assist developers as they start on their first IoT projects,” said Marc Naddell, VP of MediaTek Labs. “The new IoT Starter Kit contains everything a developer needs to create powerful proofs-of-concept for IoT and Wearables and bring their ideas to fruition.”
With the new Amazon IoT Cloud Services and the MediaTek LinkIt ONE development platform, makers will now have easy access to the professional, robust, and highly secure AWS cloud and a scalable and secure way for managing, displaying, and analyzing the potential billions of data points that will be created by the upcoming wave of IoT devices.
