This chapter shows an IoT Reference Design Kit based on i.Mx6 processor that one could purchase online from CompuLab [1, 2].
Three models are available: single core Solo, Dual-core, or Quad-core.
The software image to download onto the board from www.freescale.com.
The IoT Reference Design Kit will provide the hands-on opportunity for one to experience the smart IoT software platform and IoT applications in delivery of various IoT products.
The Quick Start Guide provides the necessary step-by-step instructions to set up and demonstrate the IoT capabilities on the i.Mx6 board.
The software platform includes a Wireless access point (AP) Gateway that is easy to use and integrated with optimized open-source applications that support the use of wireless smart phones and smart tablets to perform remote monitoring, control of internet of things, and cloud services.
The following wireless-sensor-network (WSN)-based application can be demonstrated:
Home/Building Automation. Remote monitoring and control of appliances using a ZigBee-based Smart-plug modlet.
In addition, WiFi wireless-based media streaming applications can also be demonstrated:
Video Surveillance (NVR). Network Video Recording for video surveillance supports for wired or wireless IP cameras with auto detection.
