Farnell element14 has launched the GraspIO Cloudio – a Raspberry Pi add-on board with a Drag and Drop programming interface on iPhone, iPad, Android.

Other features include: Voice Assistant Capabilities, IFTTT (“If This Then That”) Integration, IoT Cloud Service, Sensor Monitor and Dashboard, Custom Notifications with Image and Video and One Tap Multi-Board Upload.

“The GraspIO Cloudio, when combined with a Raspberry Pi, is a Full Stack IoT platform meaning that you can programme IoT devices simply and quickly with drag and drop programming on a mobile app,” explained Steve Carr, Global Head of Marketing at Premier Farnell and Farnell element14.

“The combination of built-in hardware facilities and access to application software will make Cloudio a valuable addition to the range of tools available to developers of projects involving voice, motion, imaging and cloud interaction.”

Cloudio unlocks physical computing applications with Raspberry Pi through a number of features that include: a 0.96-inch OLED display, IR sensor, light sensor, temperature sensor, tactile switch, three ADC ports, a mini servomotor port for external sensors, three digital output ports, an RGB LED, and a buzzer.

Potential applications for the Cloudio include: voice control, users can create their own voice assistants using the inbuilt speech recognition feature to control Cloudio from a smartphone; speech output in which projects can be made to “talk” with the easy-to-use in-application “Speak” block and the Raspberry Pi’s own headphone jack and, using Cloudio’s on-board or external sensors, it can be deployed as an edge device to design intelligent and responsive sensor monitoring projects. Real-time sensor graphs can be viewed on a mobile device and data can be exported for IoT analytics.
