Setting Up the Galileo Board and the Development Environment


In this chapter, we built a completely automated system for plant gardening applications, based on the Intel Galileo. Here's a summary of what we did in this chapter:

First, we connected the soil humidity sensor and plugged it to the soil. Then, we used the relay to automate the watering of the plant. Finally, we connected the project to the cloud through for monitoring online. We also displayed the data on a dashboard through the Freeboard online service

In the next chapter, we will tackle a more advanced project. That is, we will build a complete home automation system! We will take everything you learned so far to build this system for your home using the Intel Galileo as a hub of your system.
