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

XBee development for Arduino

If your robot platform uses Arduino as the MCU model, we can use XBee on the Arduino board. Several Arduino shields for XBee are available as well. Some robot platforms based on Arduino even provide an XBee shield in the board.

In this section, we'll develop an application to communicate between our computer and an XBee module on an Arduino board. We need two XBee modules for this demo.

Configuring the XBee module

We're using a mesh network for communication among XBees. In the previous section, we applied DigiMesh firmware to our XBee modules. In this demo, we'll develop an application to send data from XBee on an Arduino to XBee on a computer.

First, we configure all XBee modules...
