Server Infrastructure Required

This lab can be completed if you have access to the server infrastructure in a private lab or if you are at an event such as Cisco Live!

IoT: DevNet Connected Train

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a computing concept that describes a future where everyday physical objects will be connected to the Internet and be able to identify themselves to other devices.


Completion Time: 15 minutes

  • Using DevIoT, read sensor values
  • Control traffic light based on Train location and returned sensor values


IoT is about putting sensors on all manner of machines to collect data, linking them over wired and wireless networks, and then applying data analytics to assess. Using Cisco's DevIot, you are asked to read the sensor values and based on train's position on the track Change the traffic light before it passes the marked railroad crossing preventing a "virtual" accident.

Fairly simple, right? Let's Begin!
