IOTA— How to stream your device data via IOTA (MAM) messages to the distributed immutable Tangle and visualize its content.
In Part 1 we introduced the targets and hardware in Part 2 Google IoT and Part 3 MindSphere.
This article compares IOTA and uses its protocols for our specific business / use case and compares it to the selected IoT platform solutions.
I send measurement data to the Tangle (IOTA’s immutable database network) and explore how to visualize it for our scaled, hopefully successful environmental sensor business case. The questions on how expensive will be this implementation per device and what is in for the user. Bearing in mind that the current network and protocol is under constant development and that the future importance and advantages of IOTA maybe only fully unfold when moving from Internet based to mesh IoT network based architectures. Furthermore for our use-case in my opinion a combination of cloud based and IOTA based features would be more appropriate for the moment anyways.
