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

Basic remote robot navigation

A robot can be controlled remotely through radio communication. We can use an RF module, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth to communicate between robot and another system.

In this section, we'll try to control a robot from a computer using Bluetooth. In general, a communication model between a robot and a computer can be described as follows:

There are some radio and wireless modules that you can use to integrate with your robot to communicate with a computer.

For testing, I use the MiniQ Discover Arduino for robot platform from DFRobot: Since this robot platform uses the Romeo board (Arduino compatible) as the core robot board, it supports an RF/wireless module-based XBee shield. You can check it out at This is what it looks like:

I use Bluno Bee (
