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.

Making Your Own Wi-Fi Wardriving

Wardriving is the act of locating and possibly exploiting connections to wireless networks while driving around a certain area or region. Wardriving can be used to obtain a list of Wi-Fi SSIDs in a particular area. In this chapter, we'll learn how to implement Wi-Fi Wardriving with the ESP32 board. We can use existing Wi-Fi hotspots and maps in locations that are retrieved from GPS.

We will explore the following topics in this chapter:

  • An introduction to Wi-Fi Wardriving
  • Accessing your location via GPS from the ESP32 board
  • Implementing Wi-Fi Wardriving using ESP32
