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 indicates you the way 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 tips to construct an easy XBee community. Then you'll stroll via development an Arduino-based temperature sensor and information collector, via construction a Raspberry Pi-based sensor node.

Next you'll study other ways to shop sensor information, together with writing to an SD card, sending facts to the cloud, and developing a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your information. You even how you can hook up with and have interaction with a MySQL database server without delay from an Arduino! eventually you'll methods to positioned all of it jointly via connecting your Arduino sensor node on your new Raspberry Pi database server.

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

Analog/RF and Mixed-Signal Circuit Systematic Design

Even though within the electronic area, designers can take complete advantages of IPs and layout automation instruments to synthesize and layout very advanced structures, the analog designers’ job remains to be regarded as a ‘handcraft’, bulky and extremely time eating method. therefore, large efforts are being deployed to enhance new layout methodologies within the analog/RF and mixed-signal domain names.

Solder Paste in Electronics Packaging: Technology and Applications in Surface Mount, Hybrid Circuits, and Component Assembly

One of many most powerful tendencies within the layout and manufacture of recent electronics programs and assemblies is the usage of floor mount expertise as a substitute for through-hole tech­ nology. The mounting of digital units and elements onto the outside of a published wiring board or different substrate bargains many merits over putting the leads of units or elements into holes.

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.

Digi makes this easy by providing a nice configuration application named X-CTU. Loading firmware can only be done with the X-CTU application. Sadly, it runs only on Windows. Fortunately, it’s used only once in a while, for loading the firmware and setting the ZigBee role. All other operations that you encounter in this book—and for most projects—can be achieved with the AT command via a simple serial terminal application. org/) software. Of course, you need a valid Windows license to install the virtual machine.

Start by loading the ROUTER API function set on one module, and set it aside. Then load another module with the ROUTER API function set, and set it aside. Finally, load the last module with the COORDINATOR API function set. Configuring the XBee Modules Each module should be reset with the factory defaults. You can do this with the X-CTU application on the Modem Configuration page. Click the Restore button to set the factory defaults, and then click Write. That is all you need to do! But what about all those addresses and PAN IDs and stuff?
