[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m Martin Kronberg and
this is the IoT Developer Show, where we look at IoT
technology, share learning opportunities, and showcase
cool demos and the creators behind them. In this episode, we’re talking
with Joe Butler, a product manager here at Intel, about
the out-of-box experience with the new Up Squared
Grove IoT Development Kit. Joe, thank you so
much for being here. Could you tell us a
little bit about what you do here at Intel? Sure, Martin. So my job here at
Intel, I get to work with various groups
across Intel to get developer products to market. Make it easier for
IoT developers. Awesome, well thank you for
taking the time to come here and chat with us. Well, what can developers
expect from the kit? Well, it’s very easy to use. It’s great for high-computing
applications, like computer vision, machine learning, and
media encoding and decoding. OK, so what are some of
the interesting features? Well the UP Squared
board that’s included has pretty much every
I/O you can think of. GPIO, PWM, I2C’s, SPI, a USB
3.0, mini PCIe, M.2, SATA, HDMI, DisplayPort, and it
even has two ethernet ports. That’s a lot of
different interfaces that developers can use. Definitely. Probably the most importantly,
it has out-of-the-box compatibility with Arduino’s
new cloud-based development environment, Arduino Create. Very cool. So what kind of performance are
we looking at with this board? The board’s running
a full Ubuntu 16.04 and it has a dual-core processor
with two gigabytes of RAM. And so you can run multiple
applications at the same time, like a database and
a video encoding. All right, well that
sounds pretty good. Let’s unbox it and
check out the kit. Sure. The kit comes with the
board, with a power supply, some sensors with an adapter
board, and some cables. Let me show you
how to set it up. First, I connect the USB cable
from the board to my computer and the ethernet
cable to my board. Then I’ll turn it on and wait
a couple of minutes for it to boot. While it’s booting, I’ll
navigate to the Arduino Create website and go the
getting started flow. I’ve already logged in. So at this point, my computer
is configuring my board to my Arduino Create account. It’ll ask me to name
my board and that’s it. It’s set up. Wow, well it really seems like
it’s easy to set this board up to run headlessly. Yeah, it’s really made
for that out-of-the-box. So let me show you how easy
it is to run an application. Here’s a sketch I
built using OpenCV. It basically detects
eyes and faces and outputs the number of
faces to the LCD screen. So you can see right now
it’s detecting two faces– me and you– and as I move the
camera away, it sees no faces. When I move it back, it
finds our faces again. So there you go. Now we’ve got more
examples built into Arduino Create for
sensors, MQTT with Azure, and AWS, as well as other
computer vision temples. Very cool. Can I use other
development environments, other than Arduino Create? Definitely. Yeah, you can use Intel
system studio for C++, but you can also use
Python, JavaScript, or Java. Since it’s running Ubuntu
16.04, you can pretty much use whatever you want. Very cool. It sounds like there’s going
to be a lot of flexibility for developers then Yeah, for sure. Well, this is a really cool kit. And if you guys want
to learn more about it, you can check out the
links that we provided. Joe, thanks again
for being here. You’re welcome. And now for some IoT news. We recently launched the
Intel System Studio 2018. This helps developers boost
performance, power efficiency, and reliability for their system
and IoT device applications. To learn more about this
all-in-one development tool suite, visit our site to
download it and learn what’s new in the latest version. Thank you watching the
IoT Developer Show. Don’t forget to like and
