Nico's Talk

Beyond the browser – how to talk with robots


With Progressive Web Apps and the Project-FUGU, the web is increasingly becoming a full-fledged platform for complex applications.

But what has been missing for a long time is the possibility to communicate with devices in the periphery. With WebBluetooth, WebUSB and a whole bunch of new APIs, this gap has now been closed, which makes it possible to interact with light bulbs, fitness trackers, experimental input devices or even DIY toy cars directly via a web application.

Sounds pretty cool, and it is. But those who are used to open and transparent transmission protocols will inevitably come up against a few hurdles - the story of a frontend developer dipping his toes into the IOT world.
