Leveraging IoT and Dashboarding for Setting up a Smart eBike

This tutorial is designed to guide you through setting up a microcontroller (ESP32) to send data to SmartWorks and have SmartWorks interact with apps designed by the user.

Introduction

The tutorial provides the basics of SmartWorks and how it can be implemented to interact with other applications. You should use the concepts highlighted here and apply them to your own projects as well. The tutorial is split up into several sections as a guide for on how to setup this project; however, you can also decide to use the knowledge from a few sections into their own projects. SmartWorks provides the flexibility and capabilities to design your own IoT projects.

For a video introduction to the tutorial and it's concepts, watch the video below.
