Building Arduino Projects for the Internet of Things by Adeel Javed

Building Arduino Projects for the Internet of Things

Building Arduino Projects for the Internet of Things – Gain a strong foundation of Arduino-based device development, from which you can go in any direction according to your specific development needs and desires. You’ll build Arduino-powered devices for everyday use, and then connect those devices to the Internet. 

You’ll be introduced to the building blocks of IoT, and then deploy those principles to by building a variety of useful projects. Projects in the books gradually introduce the reader to key topics such as internet connectivity with Arduino, common IoT protocols, custom web visualization, and Android apps that receive sensor data on-demand and in realtime. IoT device enthusiasts of all ages will want this book by their side when developing Android-based devices.

If you’re one of the many who have decided to build your own Arduino-powered devices for IoT applications, then Building Arduino Projects for the Internet of Things is exactly what you need. This book is your single resource–a guidebook for the eager-to-learn Arduino enthusiast–that teaches logically, methodically, and practically how the Arduino works and what you can build with it. 

Written by a software developer and solution architect who got tired of hunting and gathering various lessons for Arduino development as he taught himself all about the topic. For Arduino enthusiasts, this book not only opens up the world of IoT applications, you will also learn many techniques that likely would not be obvious if not for experience with such a diverse group of applications

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Javed is a software developer who offers this work as ‘a guidebook for the eager-to-learn Arduino enthusiast.’ … the book is technically sound and of adequate breadth. The exposition is clear, and the code for all projects is available for download. … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals.” (C. Vickery, Choice, Vol. 54 (5), January, 2017)

From the Back Cover

This is a book about building Arduino-powered devices for everyday use, and then connecting those devices to the Internet. Connected devices allow for applications to be built around the connectivity benefits, a trend commonly referred to as The Internet of Things (IoT). The connectivity between devices is where the action lies today.

If you’re one of the many who have decided to build your own Arduino-powered devices for IoT applications, you’ve probably wished you could find a single resource–a guidebook for the eager-to-learn Arduino enthusiast–that teaches logically, methodically, and practically how the Arduino works and what you can build with it.Building Arduino Projects forthe Internet of Things: Experiments with Real-World Applications is exactly what you need. Written by a software developer and solution architect who got tired of hunting and gathering various lessons for Arduino development as he taught himself all about the topic, this book gives you an incredibly strong foundation of Arduino-based device development, from which you can go in any direction according to your specific development needs and desires.Readers are introduced to the building blocks of IoT, and then deploy those principles to by building a variety of useful projects. Projects in the books gradually introduce the reader to key topics such as internet connectivity with Arduino, common IoT protocols, custom web visualization, and Android apps that receive sensor data on-demand and in realtime.IoT device enthusiasts of all ages will want this book by their side when developing Android-based devices.
