More Decks by Pooja Mistry

Other Decks in Technology


  1. Prototyping the Internet of Things with Node-RED

  2. Node–RED Flow- based programming for the Internet of Things •

    Browser – based editor • Node.js runtime • Extendable palette
  3. 2013: Created by IBM Emerging Technology Services and open sourced

    later that year 2015: Added to the default Raspberry Pi image 2016: Became a founding project of the JS Foundation. 2018: Hit 1,000,000 installs
  4. Flow Based Programming • Invented by J. Paul Morrison at

    IBM in early 1970’s • A network of asynchronous processes communicating by means of streams of structured data chunks • Each process is a black box – it doesn’t know what has come before it or what comes after it ; it just acts on the data it receives and passes the result on
  5. Why Node – RED ?

  6. None
  7. None
  8. None
  9. What is a Node-RED Node ?

  10. None
  11. None
  12. From the Edge to the Cloud Easily installed on the

    default Raspberry Pi image, Node-RED can be used out of the box to begin creating IoT applications Available in the IBM Cloud catalog as a quick start application, it takes moments to create cloud applications that combine services across the platform. Easily installed on other cloud platforms.
  13. None
  14. None
  15. None
  16. Other Input Nodes HTTP – Act as an HTTP endpoint;

    great for building RESTful services IBMIoT – Receive messages from an attached Watson IoT Platform Also can receive from Websockets, MQTT (pick your own broker), TCP and MQ Light
  17. Other Output Nodes HTTP Response; required as the final node

    when the input comes from an HTTP Request IBMIoT – send events out to the attached Watson IoT account Twilio – send SMS messages via the Twilio service IBM Push – Send Push notifications to mobile devices Also can send requests through TCP, UDP, MQLight, WebSockets.
  18. Social Nodes Storage Nodes Watson Services Nodes

  19. Sign up for IBM-Cloud Get a head start with IBM

    Cloud, sign up via: https://cloud.ibm.com/registration
  20. Find Node-RED on Catalog

  21. Demo Time!

  22. So many more things to do with Node-RED Install it

    locally and get wiring
  23. IBM developerWorks Recipes : https://developer.ibm.com/recipes/ Lots of contributed recipes for

    connecting things to Watson IoT platform – many using Node-RED
  24. More Node- RED Resources Node Red nodes and Flows: •

    https://flows.nodered.org • Find new nodes, share your flows and see what other • people have done with Node-RED Node Red official documentation: • https://nodered.org/docs/ • Getting Started - User Guide - Cookbook Watson Node Red nodes: • https://github.com/watson-developer-cloud/node-red-labs • A collection of examples on how to use the Watson nodes in Node-Red Community Hosted Node Red Guide : http://noderedguide.com/ • “ The node red guide is a series of lectures designed to get you stared with Node-Red” Pooja’s Node-RED Demo: https://github.com/pmmistry/Intro-to-Node-RED John Walicki Node-RED Examples: https://github.com/johnwalicki
