Intel ® Edison Tutorial 6: Intel Cloud-based Analytics Part 1 3 Introduction In this tutorial, you will: 1. Be introduced to the cloud-based analytics service, 2. Learn to create an account, 3. Learn to register an Intel Edison and sensors/actuators, 4. Learn to collect sensor data provided by the Edison using IoT agent, and 5. Learn to use custom components such as rotary sensor. Things Needed 1. An Intel Edison with Arduino-compatible breakout, 2. A micro USB cable, 3. A Grove Starter kit, and 4. A PC or Mac Intel Cloud-based Analytics Overview Intel provides a cloud-based analytics system for the Internet-of-Things (IoT) that includes resources for the collection and analysis of sensor data that the Intel® IoT Developer Kit provides [1]. Using this service, Intel Galileo/Edison device developers can jump-start data acquisition and analysis without having to invest in large-scale storage and processing capacity [1].

Intel ® Edison Tutorial 6: Intel Cloud-based Analytics Part 1 4 As shown in Figure 1 , the latest embedded Linux image for Edison/Galileo includes a pre- installed IoT Agent that communicates with the Intel IoT Analytics system via either MQTT or HTTP protocols. MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol that was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport [2]. A user can interact with the IoT Analytics system via IoT Analytics Dashboard as shown in Figure 2 . Figure 2 Home Paege of the IoT Analytics System Before we start working with the Intel Cloud-based Analytics system, please consider the followings: Using the iotkit-admin program to change your device ID (from the default of MAC address) does not make the device anonymous. The device IP address will still be available to Intel and the IoT Analytics site. In addition, if a device collects and submits GPS coordinates, Intel will have access to that information, as well. Please carefully review the Terms and Conditions and the Intel Online Privacy Notice [1]. Do not connect an Intel® IoT Developer Kit board to any kind of actuator that could cause harm or damage. It is possible that users could unintentionally activate these devices [1].

Intel ® Edison Tutorial 6: Intel Cloud-based Analytics Part 1 5 Account Creation Before we proceed, it is important to note that the Intel IoT Analytics Dashboard website makes errors on some web browsers. As of October 14, 2015, the following errors are reported: Windows 1. Microsoft Edge and Explorer do not interact with the Cloud website properly.
