Intel Edison Projects

By: Avirup Basu

Overview of this book

Change the way you look at embedded electronics with Intel Edison. It is a small computing platform packed with a set of robust features to deliver hands-on performance, durability, and software support. This book is a perfect place to kickstart development and rapid prototyping using Intel Edison. It will start by introducing readers to the Intel Edison board and explaining how to get started with it. You will learn how to build a mini weather station, which will help you to acquire temperature and smoke level and push it to the IoT platform. Then you will see how to build a home automation device and control your appliances using an Android app. Furthermore, we will build a security system using a webcam to detect faces and perform voice recognition. Toward the end, the book will demonstrate how you can build two robots, which will be based on different line sensing sensors and can be controlled by a PC. The book will guide the readers through each and every step of execution of a project, using Intel Edison.

Open-ended task for the reader

Since you have got a fair idea of how to realize small IoT projects, we'll provide you a simple open-ended task for you to implement.

We've used dweet.io and freeboard.io. Besides this, there are several other IoT platforms, such as Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Thingspeak. Your task is to simulate a similar thing on other IoT platforms. Azure and IBM requires you to sign up by the use of debit or credit card, but for the first month it's free and it can be used for IoT, while, on the other hand, Thingspeak is totally free and it has support for Matlab.
