I’m looking into getting started with my own IoT project — in my case, I’m interested in building a security system which takes a few different inputs into account – potentially including some ML image recognition – before deciding what actions to take including sending alerts, triggering alarms or lights, and similar.
To do all this, I’m going to need some sort of a small development board that will run an OS and offers some connectivity options. GPIO? SPI? RS232?
I have an Intel Neural Compute Stick 2 to help with some of the ML bits if needed. But I know almost nothing. Maybe I should start with a Raspberry Pi or similar and get my sensor interfaces working?
Happy to take suggestions, I have no experience in this area and want to start off in the right direction!
