Beginning Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi by Charles Bell

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 ways to show your Raspberry Pi right into a MySQL database server to shop your sensor data!

First you'll find out 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 construction an Arduino-based temperature sensor and knowledge collector, through construction a Raspberry Pi-based sensor node.

Next you'll examine alternative ways to shop sensor information, together with writing to an SD card, sending facts to the cloud, and constructing a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your information. You even the best way to connect with and have interaction with a MySQL database server without delay from an Arduino! eventually you'll easy methods to positioned all of it jointly by means of connecting your Arduino sensor node for your new Raspberry Pi database server.

If you must see how good Arduino and Raspberry Pi can get alongside, specially to create a sensor community, then starting Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi is simply the booklet you would like.

Fortunately, you do not have to get too far into the specifics in order to use it. However, it does help to know how the packets are formed so that you can diagnose and debug your data messages. I shall present some of the frequently encountered packets as you progress through the book. htm Chapter 2 ■ Tiny Talking Modules: An Introduction to XBee Wireless Modules Loading the Firmware for the Modules The first thing you need to do is to load the firmware for each module using the X-CTU application.

Router: A node that is configured as a router is designed to pass on (route) information to other radios. Routers enable the healing of mesh networks by joining networks and exchanging messages from other nodes. Routers are typically powered with reliable sources because they must be dependable. Thus, a data-aggregation node would be a good choice for the router radio mode. • End device: An end device is a node that sends or receives information to the router nodes and the coordinator. It has an advantage in that less processing is going on, so power consumption is lower.

Arduino also provides an integrated development environment called the Arduino IDE. The IDE runs on your computer (called the host), where you can write and compile sketches and then upload them to the Arduino via USB connections. The IDE is available for Linux, Mac, and Windows. It is designed around a text editor especially designed for writing code and a set of limited functions designed to support compilation and loading of sketches. Sketches are written in a special format consisting of only two required methods—one that executes when the Arduino is reset or powered on and another that executes continuously.
