This is a book about building Arduino-powered devices for everyday use, and then connecting those devices to the Internet. If you’re one of the many who have decided to build your own Arduino-powered devices for IoT applications, you’ve probably wished you could find a single resource–a guidebook for the eager-to-learn Arduino enthusiast–that teaches logically, methodically, and practically how the Arduino works and what you can build with it.Building Arduino Projects for the Internet of Things: Experiments with Real-World Applications is exactly what you need.
Most of the book is targeted at beginners in computing and programming. A few parts, such as the small electronics project and setting up a web server, assume some intermediate skills.
The Raspberry Pi is one of the most successful open source hardware projects ever. For less than $40, you get a full-blown PC, a multimedia center, and a web server–and this book gives you everything you need to get started. You’ll learn the basics, progress to controlling the Pi, and then build your own electronics projects.
Do you have an idea for a cool project? Have you ever wanted to create a robot or your very own game controller? Well if you have then the Arduino is probably the piece of hardware that you can use to accomplish just such a task as well as countless others. When we were growing up we had rector sets and other small electric kits filled with transistors, resistors and other devices that allowed us to send signals to devices that we had growing up. With the advancement of modern technology and the throw away society building things and learning how they work is a lost art.
