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

Central control machine

Most vending machine use FPGA to control all processes and transactions. One of the core controls of a vending machine is the AMS Sensit 2 PC board that you can see here:

For a simple vending machine, you can use an Arduino board as the control unit in your vending machine. Arduino provides more digital and analog I/O pins that you can attach to the machine. You can extend these I/O pins using additional ICs.

Moreover, we can use your Raspberry Pi as a control unit for your vending machine. The Raspberry Pi has capabilities of a computer with low-end features. You can use desktop libraries such as OpenCV with Raspberry Pi to perform image processing and detection.
