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.

Technical requirements

Before we begin, make sure that you have the following things ready:

  • A computer with an OS, such as Windows, Linux, or Mac, installed.
  • An ESP32 development board. The ESP-WROVER-KIT board from Espressif is recommended.
  • An ESP32 development environment configured on your computer.

  • An DHT22 sensor module.
  • The CoolTerm tool, which can read and write data over serial communication (UART). This is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. We set our serial tool to the ESP32 board with Baudrate 115200.
