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 ways to show your Raspberry Pi right into a MySQL database server to shop your sensor data!
First you'll know about the differing kinds of sensors and sensor networks, together with tips on how to construct an easy XBee community. Then you'll stroll via construction an Arduino-based temperature sensor and knowledge collector, by way of development a Raspberry Pi-based sensor node.
Next you'll study alternative ways to shop sensor info, together with writing to an SD card, sending information to the cloud, and establishing a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your info. You even how you can hook up with and have interaction with a MySQL database server at once from an Arduino! ultimately you'll the best way to positioned all of it jointly by way of connecting your Arduino sensor node for your new Raspberry Pi database server.
If you need to see how good Arduino and Raspberry Pi can get alongside, in particular to create a sensor community, then starting Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi is simply the booklet you wish.

Tip All numeric values are entered as hexadecimal values. To demonstrate how these commands work, let’s connect a module that has been loaded with the ZigBee ROUTER AT firmware. Figure 2-10 shows a typical configuration session starting with connecting to the module and displaying its values and then exiting command mode using CoolTerm on Mac OS X. ■■Note The first time you run the ATDH, ATDL, or ATMY command without a parameter, you may see a result of 0. This indicates the value has not been set.
When you install the software, you have the option to download the latest firmware updates. Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, this step could take some time to run. If you elect to skip this step, you can do it from within the software. pid=4624&osvid=0&type=utilities. Once the software is installed and you launch the X-CTU software, you need to connect to your XBee module. To connect to the XBee, simply insert the XBee module into the adapter and connect it to your computer. You should see the power LED glow.
Figure 3-6. cc) Although branded as an official Arduino board, the Arduino Micro is produced in cooperation with Adafruit. 56 Chapter 3 ■ Arduino-Based Sensor Nodes Nano The Arduino Nano is an older form of the Arduino Micro. In this case, it is based on the functionality of the Duemilanove4 and has the ATmega328 processor (older models use the ATmega168) and 14 digital I/O pins, of which 6 can be used as PWM output, and 8 analog inputs. The mini has 32KB of flash memory and uses a 16MHz clock.
