Sensing and actuating on IoT devices

In this section, we will learn how to sense and actuate on IoT devices. This part is important because we can gather data through sensor devices or interact with the environment through actuator devices. For testing, I use Arduino, from Arduino.cc, and Raspberry Pi boards.
