About this Event

Google recently released the Coral Environmental Sensor Board ( https://blog.hackster.io/google-releases-coral-environmental-sensor-board-for-the-raspberry-pi-d63245510fbb ), a board with a light sensor, barometric pressure sensor, and humidity/temp sensor, as well as connections for UART, I2C, and PWM. It further goal is to allow you to securely link your projects and collect, analyze, and process the sensor data using Google’s lineup of various tools.

There will be a LAN setup with a Raspberry Pi with the Coral Environmental Sensor Board ( https://coral.withgoogle.com/docs/enviro-board/get-started/ ) and an internet connection for IoT Core ( https://cloud.google.com/iot-core/ ). There will be a brief presentation (~15-30 minutes) of the installation, setup, and connection. For the next ~hour, attendees will be free to play with the setup. To wrap up, we'll go around the room and see what people were/weren't able to put together, strength/weaknesses/relevance/irrelevance of the platforms.

You'll need a laptop, IDE, SSH client, and Google account.
