A few weeks ago Google released an updated preview version of the Google Cloud IoT Device SDK for Embedded C at GitHub. The open source C library allows developers to better connect even the simplest IoT devices to Google Cloud IoT Core.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products. It provides a series of modular cloud services including computing, data analytics, data storage and machine learning. Google lists over 90 products under the Google Cloud brand. Cloud IoT Core, as a secure device connection and management service for IoT, is one of them.
With the service for managing IoT devices in the Google Cloud, microcontrollers can now be more effectively integrated into IoT networks. The focus lies on smaller devices in Smart Homes. Google is collaborating with providers of various microcontrollers. According to Google, the Development Kit will include a Board Support Package that will enable the development of new features with low engineering impact. In addition, it has all the necessary security precautions for networking with IoT via JSON Web Token.
Here you find a great introduction to Cloud IoT Core and here a great Use Case in the context of Smart City, more precisely how to use Google Cloud IoT Core in Smart City Waste Management.
