IoT Projects using Arduino – TOP 10 IoT projects in 2020

Through this post, you’ll learn how to make some of the top IoT Projects using Arduino. The easy to understand content of this blog will give you a good idea of basic concepts and applications of IoT. All the IoT projects using Arduino mentioned in this post are selected based on the application, implementation, and complexity involved.

Before heading on to the projects, lets first understand what’s IoT. The Internet of Things or IoT implies the interconnection of various electronic devices through the internet, continuously monitoring, tracking, sharing, or collecting data. The emergence of IoT has helped mankind take a giant leap forward.

First of all the sensors, processors, and communication hardware helps us to collect the data. This collected data is then either sent to the cloud to look over. Finally, the device/sensor makes the required adjustments as per the analyzed data.

This way IoT creates an environment for effective resource utilization to minimize human effort which ultimately saves time and improves security.

With all the above things considered, here we present the Top 10 selected IoT projects using Arduino.

  1. Smart Bin
