Internet of Things Projects with ESP32

By: Agus Kurniawan

Overview of this book

ESP32 is a low-cost MCU with integrated Wi-Fi and BLE. Various modules and development boards-based on ESP32 are available for building IoT applications easily. Wi-Fi and BLE are a common network stack in the Internet of Things application. These network modules can leverage your business and projects needs for cost-effective benefits. This book will serve as a fundamental guide for developing an ESP32 program. We will start with GPIO programming involving some sensor devices. Then we will study ESP32 development by building a number of IoT projects, such as weather stations, sensor loggers, smart homes, Wi-Fi cams and Wi-Fi wardriving. Lastly, we will enable ESP32 boards to execute interactions with mobile applications and cloud servers such as AWS. By the end of this book, you will be up and running with various IoT project-based ESP32 chip.

Introducing cloud technology

Cloud technology enables us to scale our infrastructure and software capabilities. Some companies are likely to have issues with investing in software and hardware. In addition, both software and hardware need to be maintained in order to keep up performance, security, and scalability.

In general, cloud technology services provide three models that can address our business problems. The following is a list of cloud technology services:

  • Platform as a Service (PaaS): This service enables us to get a platform for managing applications without worrying about the infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): This service provides the infrastructure for our solution without investing in server hardware.
  • Software as a Service (SaaS): This service provides software that we can use any time.

Some cloud companies, such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure...
