The Intel(r) Edison is a remarkable device. It is as small as an embedded processor, but has enough power to allow it to be used as a tiny server. With its built-in support for WiFi, GPIO, I2C and SPI it is a capable IoT device. However, to make use of its unique qualities you have to take a step beyond its simple Arduino emulation and make use of it as itself, in its native mode. This means using the mini-breakout board and dealing with the fact that it is a 1.8V logic device and programming it using C to bring out its full power. Once you know how, this isn't as difficult as it seems at first. The rewards are well worth the effort. Exploring Intel(r) Edison starts with setting it up for the mini-breakout board. Then it looks at the advantages of choosing C as the language in which to program it, showing how to set up the Intel(r) System Studio IoT Edition IDE. Now we are ready to get building circuits and coding. Using the mraa library is the direct way to work with the GPIO lines and we need to master it before looking at ways of making things faster with memory-mapped I/O, achieving realtime facilities with Linux and using pulse width modulation. From here we are able to start connecting sensors - the HTU21D (I2C), DHT11/22 (custom) and the DS18B20 (1-wire). There are problems to overcome along the way - how to convert from 1.8V to work with higher voltages and how to support a 1-wire bus. The final circuit, to add AtoD, uses the SPI bus and implements a software emulation. Finally we look beyond mraa with a Linux-based approach to working with GPIO lines and how to set the GPIO mod

Raspberry Pi Iot in C

ISBN: 1871962463
Release Date: 2016-10-02
Genre:

The Raspberry Pi makes an ideal match for the Internet of Things. But to put it to good use in IoT you need two areas of expertise, electronics and programming and because of the way hardware and software engineering tend to occupy separate niches you may need help with combining the two. This book teaches you to think like an IoT programmer. In Raspberry Pi IoT in C you will find a practical approach to understanding electronic circuits and datasheets and translating this to code, specifically using the C programming language. The main reason for choosing C is speed, a crucial factor when you are writing programs to communicate with the outside world. If you are familiar with another programming language, C shouldn't be hard to pick up. Here it is used in conjunction with NetBeans and with the bcm2835 library. The main idea in this book is to not simply install a driver, but to work directly with the hardware. So rather than using Raspberry Pi HATs or other expansion boards we use the Pi's GPIO (General Purpose Input Output) and connect off-the-shelf sensors. If you want to know how to work with the GPIO lines directly, how to work with near realtime Linux and generally take control of the Pi this is the book you need. It explains how to use the standard bus types - SPI, I2C, PWM - and with custom protocols including an in-depth exposition of the 1-wire bus. You will also discover how to put the Internet into the IoT using sockets and the low cost ESP8266. After reading this book you will be in a better position to tackle interfacing anything-with-anything without the need for custom drivers and prebuilt hardware modules. Having written a Blinky program to check that everything we need is installed and working we move on to exploring the basics of using the GPIO and also master memory mapping, pulse width modulation and other more sophisticated bus types. From here we can start connecting sensors, which is a core requirement for IoT. First we'll meet the ubiquitous I2C bus, next we'll implement a custom protocol for a one-wire bus, and eventually we'll add eight channels of 12-bit AtoD with the SPI bus, which involves overcoming some subtle difficulties. Next we look at the traditional serial interface how to use it to communicate with other devices. This paves the way for getting the Pi on the web - after all this is a book about the Internet of Things -using first a USB WiFi adapter and sockets and then the low cost ESP8266, which is particularly useful with the Pi Zero which has only one USB port. Having transformed the Pi into both a web client and a web server we can then use them to exchange information.

MQTT Essentials A Lightweight IoT Protocol

Prior knowledge of working with IoT devices is essential. What You Will Learn Understand how MQTTv3.1 and v3.1.1 works in detail Install and secure a Mosquitto MQTT broker by following best practices Design and develop IoT solutions combined with mobile and web apps that use MQTT messages to communicate Explore the features included in MQTT for IoT and Machine-to-Machine communications Publish and receive MQTT messages with Python, Java, Swift, JavaScript, and Node.js Implement the security best practices while setting up the MQTT Mosquitto broker In Detail This step-by-step guide will help you gain a deep understanding of the lightweight MQTT protocol. We'll begin with the specific vocabulary of MQTT and its working modes, followed by installing a Mosquitto MQTT broker. Then, you will use best practices to secure the MQTT Mosquitto broker to ensure that only authorized clients are able to publish and receive messages. Once you have secured the broker with the appropriate configuration, you will develop a solution that controls a drone with Python. Further on, you will use Python on a Raspberry Pi 3 board to process commands and Python on Intel Boards (Joule, Edison and Galileo). You will then connect to the MQTT broker, subscribe to topics, send messages, and receive messages in Python. You will also develop a solution that interacts with sensors in Java by working with MQTT messages. Moving forward, you will work with an asynchronous API with callbacks to make the sensors interact with MQTT messages. Following the same process, you will develop an iOS app with Swift 3, build a website that uses WebSockets to connect to the MQTT broker, and control home automation devices with HTML5, JavaScript code, Node.js and MQTT messages Style and approach This step-by-step guide describes the MQTT protocol for your IoT projects

ISBN: 9781457186974
Release Date: 2015-05-14
Genre: Computers

The Photon is an open source, inexpensive, programmable, WiFi-enabled module for building connected projects and prototypes. Powered by an ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller and a Broadcom WiFi chip, the Photon is just as happy plugged into a hobbyist's breadboard as it is into a product rolling off of an assembly line. While the Photon--and its accompanying cloud platform--is designed as a ready-to-go foundation for product developers and manufacturers, it's great for Maker projects, as you'll see in this book. You'll learn how to get started with the free development tools, deploy your sketches over WiFi, and build electronic projects that take advantage of the Photon's processing power, cloud platform, and input/output pins. What's more, the Photon is backward-compatible with its predecessor, the Spark Core.

The BBC micro: bit is capable of taking on a variety of roles including that of a powerful IoT device. In order to gain full access to its features and to external devices, however, you need to use C which delivers the speed crucial to programs that communicate with the outside world. Written for the electronics enthusiast, micro: bit IoT In C starts with a first "Hello Blinky" C program with the mbed online compiler, we move to the desktop to using an offline approach using the yotta development environment plus NetBeans to make things even easier. Now we are ready to discover how to control the micro: bit's I/O lines, exploring the basis of using the GPIO. For speed, however, we need to work directly with the raw hardware and also master memory mapping, pulse width modulation and other more sophisticated bus types. From here we can start connecting sensors using first the I2C bus, then by implementing a custom protocol for a one-wire bus, and eventually adding eight channels of 12-bit AtoD with the SPI bus, which involves overcoming some subtle difficulties. We then look at serial connections, one of the oldest ways of connecting devices but still very useful. The micro: bit lacks WiFi connectivity but using a low-cost device we enable a connection to the Internet via its serial port which allows it to become a server. To conclude we look at the micro: bit's LED display. This may only be 5x5, but it is very versatile, especially when you use pulse width modulation to vary the brightness level, something we demonstrate in a classic game, written of course in C.
