Build sensor networks using Python and MicroPython utilizing XBee radio modules, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino boards. This revised and updated edition will put all of these together to create a sensor network, and show you how you can turn your Raspberry Pi right into a MySQL database server to store your sensor data!
Now you’ll review the various types of sensors and sensor networks, together with new technologies, such as how to construct a very simple XBee network. You’ll then walk through constructing a sensor node on the XBee, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino, and also learn how to collect information from multiple sensor nodes. The publication also explores different ways to store sensor information, such as writing to an SD card, sending info to the cloud, and setting up a Raspberry Pi MySQL host to host your data. You’ll even know 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 linking your sensor nodes into your new Raspberry Pi database server.
If you want to see how well XBee, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino may get together, especially to create a sensor network, then Beginning Sensor Networks with XBee, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino is just the book you need.
