Build powerful Robots and IoT solutions using Intel Edison
Change the way you look at embedded electronics with Intel Edison. It is a small computing platform packed with a set of robust features to deliver hands-on performance, durability, and software support.
This book is a perfect place to kickstart development and rapid prototyping using Intel Edison. It will start by introducing readers to the Intel Edison board and explaining how to get started with it. You will learn how to build a mini weather station, which will help you to acquire temperature and smoke level and push it to the IoT platform. Then you will see how to build a home automation device and control your appliances using an Android app. Furthermore, we will build a security system using a webcam to detect faces and perform voice recognition. Toward the end, the book will demonstrate how you can build two robots, which will be based on different line sensing sensors and can be controlled by a PC.
The book will guide the readers through each and every step of execution of a project, using Intel Edison.
What You Will Learn
- Program your device using the Arduino processor language, Python, and Node.js
- Interface different sensors with the Intel Edison
- Build a home automation system using MQTT, Android, and WPF
- Perform face detection using Intel Edison
- Develop a high-speed line follower robot
- Control a robot using a PC application and an custom controller
