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.

What this book covers

Chapter 1, Setting up Intel Edison, covers the initial steps of setting up the Intel Edison, flashing it, and setting up the environment for development.

Chapter 2, Weather Station (IoT), introduces you to IoT and uses a simple case of a weather station where we use temperature, smoke level, and sound level and push data to the cloud to visualize it.

Chapter 3, Intel Edison and IoT (Home Automation), covers a case for home automation, where we are controlling electrical load using the Intel Edison.

Chapter 4, Intel Edison and Security System, covers voice and image processing for the Intel Edison.

Chapter 5, Autonomous Robotics with Intel Edison, explores the field of robotics, where we develop a line-following robot using the Intel Edison and related algorithms.

Chapter 6, Manual Robotics with Intel Edison, explores UGVs and also guides you through the process of developing controller software.
