Intelligent IoT Projects in 7 Days

By: Agus Kurniawan

Overview of this book

Intelligent IoT Projects in 7 days is about creating smart IoT projects in just 7 days. This book will help you to overcome the challenge of analyzing data from physical devices. This book aims to help you put together some of the most exciting IoT projects in a short span of time. You'll be able to use these in achieving or automating everyday tasks—one project per day. We will start with a simple smart gardening system and move on to a smart parking system, and then we will make our own vending machine, a smart digital advertising dashboard, a smart speaker machine, an autonomous fire fighter robot, and finally look at a multi-robot cooperation using swarm intelligence

Vehicle entry/exit detection

A parking lot usually has an in-gate and out-gate. When a vehicle comes in, a driver presses a button to a get parking ticket. Then, the gate opens. Some parking places use a card as driver identity. After it is tapped, the gate will open.

Here's a real parking gate:

To build a parking in-gate, we can design one as shown in the following figure. We put sensor devices on the left, right, and a front of a vehicle. You can use sensor devices that we have learned about.

For instance, we can use an ultrasonic sensor. We'll put some sensor devices on the right, left, and front of the vehicle. The sensor device position in the gate is shown in the following figure. All sensors acquire and obtain distance values, dx. Then, we set a threshold value from a collection of distance values to indicate whether...
