- Code your sensor nodes with Python and MicroPython
- Work with new XBee 3 modules
- Host your data on Raspberry Pi
- Get started with MySQL
- Create sophisticated sensor networks
You’ll review the different types of sensors and sensor networks, along with new technology, including how to build a simple XBee network. You’ll then walk through building an sensor nodes on the XBee, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino, and also learn how to collect data from multiple sensor nodes. The book also explores different ways to store sensor data, including writing to an SD card, sending data to the cloud, and setting up a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your data. You’ll even learn how to connect to and interact with a MySQL database server directly from an Arduino! Finally you’ll see how to put it all together by connecting your sensor nodes to your new Raspberry Pi database server.
