IoT (Internet of Things) connects the physical world to the Internet.
The next logical step is enabling the connected physical world to speak the same language. HTTP is the major communication platform of the Internet.
Low cost, low power embedded boards are resource-constrained systems, which do not provide sufficient performance and memory space for standard web server implementations. The author will propose a number of
techniques that will allow you to run modern web interfaces on embedded systems with a few hundred kilobytes of flash and some tens of kilobytes of RAM.
After looking at few free and Open Source TCP/IP stacks, file systems and RTOSes, the author will show by example how on-the-fly streaming and function-based CGI helps to provide dynamic web content with minimal resource allocation. New web standards like HTML5, CSS3 or SVG provide further help to create usable and appealing web interfaces with minimal resources on the server side. Last not least, HTTP-based machine to machine communication and JSON formatted data combined with mashup technology allows to integrate tiny devices into a new WoT (Web of Things).
