Beginning Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi by Charles Bell

By Charles Bell

Starting Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi teaches you the way to construct sensor networks with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and XBee radio modules, or even exhibits you ways to show your Raspberry Pi right into a MySQL database server to shop your sensor data!

First you'll know about the differing kinds of sensors and sensor networks, together with the way to construct an easy XBee community. Then you'll stroll via development an Arduino-based temperature sensor and knowledge collector, via development a Raspberry Pi-based sensor node.

Next you'll study other ways to shop sensor info, together with writing to an SD card, sending info to the cloud, and constructing a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your info. You even how to connect with and have interaction with a MySQL database server without delay from an Arduino! ultimately you'll easy methods to placed all of it jointly by means of connecting your Arduino sensor node for your new Raspberry Pi database server.

If you need to see how good Arduino and Raspberry Pi can get alongside, in particular to create a sensor community, then starting Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi is simply the e-book you wish.
