By Charles Bell

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

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

Next you'll research other ways to shop sensor info, together with writing to an SD card, sending info to the cloud, and developing a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your facts. You even find out how to connect with and have interaction with a MySQL database server without delay from an Arduino! eventually you'll tips on how to positioned all of it jointly by way of connecting your Arduino sensor node in 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 ebook you would like.

The official boards sport a distinctive blue-colored PCB with white lettering. With the exception of one model, all the official boards can be mounted in a chassis (they have holes in the PCB for mounting screws). The exception is an Arduino designed for mounting on a breadboard. Leonardo The Leonardo board represents a bold leap forward for the Arduino platform. Although it supports the standard header layout, ensuring the continued use of shields, it also includes a USB controller that allows the board to appear as a USB device to the host computer.

Cc through open source agreements—some of which have been bundled with the IDE. The Arduino supports a number of analog and digital pins that you can use to connect to various devices and components and interact with them. The mainstream boards have specific pin layouts, or headers, that allow the use of expansion boards called shields. Shields let you add additional hardware capabilities such as Ethernet, Bluetooth, and XBee support to your Arduino. The physical layout of the Arduino and the shield allow you to stack shields.

For example, the X-CTU application allows you to create a packet and send it as a group. Once you have all the modules connected to a terminal application, activate the hexadecimal display on each. For this example, I used two computers (you can use three or as few as one). The coordinator is connected to a Mac running CoolTerm, the router is connected to a Windows 7 virtual machine running X-CTU, and the end device is connected to a Windows 7 laptop running X-CTU. You should give the modules five to ten minutes to self configure before proceeding.
