Publisher Comments:

Get ready to create distributed sensor systems and intelligent interactive devices using the ZigBee wireless networking protocol and XBee radios. By the time you're halfway through this fast-paced, hands-on guide, you'll have built a series of useful projects, including a complete ZigBee wireless network that delivers remotely sensed data.

Radio networking is creating revolutions in volcano monitoring, performance art, clean energy, and consumer electronics. As you follow the examples in each chapter, you'll learn how to tackle inspiring projects of your own. This practical guide is ideal for inventors, hackers, crafters, students, hobbyists, and scientists.

  • Investigate an assortment of practical and intriguing project ideas
  • Prep your ZigBee toolbox with an extensive shopping list of parts and programs
  • Create a simple, working ZigBee network with XBee radios in less than two hours — for under $100
  • Use the Arduino open source electronics prototyping platform to build a series of increasingly complex projects
  • Get familiar with XBee's API mode for creating sensor networks
  • Build fully scalable sensing and actuation systems with inexpensive components
  • Learn about power management, source routing, and other XBee technical nuances
  • Make gateways that connect with neighboring networks, including the Internet

Synopsis:

'

The Internet of Things is the new generation of devices that serve as the Internet\'s interface to the physical world. Today\'s tiny microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators are powerful, inexpensive, and simple enough to code that anyone with basic programming skills can create a variety of fun, useful, and even profitable systems — such as devices that detect and extinguish fires or automatically water plants when the soil becomes too dry. This hands-on introductory guide will quickly show you how it\'s done.

You\'ll learn how to program embedded devices using the .NET Micro Framework and the Netduino Plus board, and then connect these devices to the Internet using Pachube, a cloud platform for sharing real-time sensor data. Getting Started with the Internet of Things briefly introduces the tools and then walks you though several techniques for using them, using a series of C# examples:

  • Develop programs that demonstrate the use of simple outputs (actuators) and inputs (sensors)
  • Build client programs that show how measurements can be pushed to an existing Web service
  • Create server programs that provide Web services to clients on the Web
  • Develop a program that is both client and server and runs in the cloud
  • Get .NET classes and methods needed to implement all of the book\'s examples

Synopsis:

This valuable little book offers a thorough introduction to the open-source electronics prototyping platform that's taking the design and hobbyist world by storm. Getting Started with Arduino gives you lots of ideas for Arduino projects and helps you get going on them right away. From getting organized to putting the final touches on your prototype, all the information you need is right in the book.

Inside, you'll learn about:



  • Interaction design and physical computing
  • The Arduino hardware and software development environment
  • Basics of electricity and electronics
  • Prototyping on a solderless breadboard
  • Drawing a schematic diagram

And more. With inexpensive hardware and open-source software components that you can download free, getting started with Arduino is a snap. To use the introductory examples in this book, all you need is a USB Arduino, USB A-B cable, and an LED.

Join the tens of thousands of hobbyists who have discovered this incredible (and educational) platform. Written by the co-founder of the Arduino project, with illustrations by Elisa Canducci, Getting Started with Arduino gets you in on the fun! This 128-page book is a greatly expanded follow-up to the author's original short PDF that's available on the Arduino website.
