BeagleBone Black with Cloud Service

This chapter’s project will demonstrate how to connect a BeagleBone Black (BBB) running the Angstrom Linux distribution to an online web service. The BBB will also have temperature sensors interfaced to it. The BBB will run a program that takes measurements and subsequently sends them to the Xively web service. Users will be able to log into the Xively website and observe both current and past measurements. This project is designed to show you how to set up a cloud-based sensor system, which stores all sensor data remotely, eliminating the need for a local database.
