Overview of this book

In our modern, internet-connected world, where billions of devices constantly collect and send data to systems to be stored and processed, it’s surprising how the intricacies of data transmission and storage are often overlooked in the IoT domain. With Arduino Data Communications, you'll bridge the knowledge gap and become an expert in collecting data from IoT sensors, transmitting data, and configuring your own databases. This book is an exploration of IoT’s inner workings, guiding you through the process of setting up an end-to-end system that you can employ to prototype your own IoT solutions, using easy-to-follow examples. It begins with a general overview of the Arduino ecosystem, acquainting you with various sensors and shields and unveiling the art of data collection. You’ll then explore data formats and methods to store data, both locally and on database servers. As you progress through the chapters, you’ll learn how to set up REST and MQTT infrastructure to communicate with databases and get hands-on with LoRaWAN, Ethernet, cellular, HC-12, and RS-485. The final chapters are your training ground for real-world projects, imparting the essential knowledge you need to tackle complex challenges with confidence. By the end of this Arduino book, you'll have seamlessly configured an end-to-end system, all while immersing yourself in practical scenarios that bring the world of IoT to life.

To get the most out of this book

You will need a version of the Arduino IDE installed on your computer. All code examples have been tested with Arduino IDE 2.2.1 running on a MacBook Pro with Intel Core but should work on other operating systems and future versions of the Arduino IDE.

Software/hardware covered in the book

Operating system requirements

Arduino IDE 2.2.1

Windows, macOS, or Linux

Python 3.7

JavaScript

Arduino MKR WiFi 1010

You will need an Arduino Portenta together with an Arduino Portenta Vision Shield – Ethernet for the code examples in Chapter 8. A little knowledge of either JavaScript or Python will help you understand the code examples in Chapter 5.

If you are using the digital version of this book, we advise you to type the code yourself or access the code from the book’s GitHub repository (a link is available in the next section). Doing so will help you avoid any potential errors related to the copying and pasting of code.
