Overview of this book

ESP32 is a versatile microcontroller and a great starting point for anyone venturing into the IoT realm, but its configuration and interfacing of sensors can be challenging for new users. Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) simplifies programming, uploading code, and utilization of ESP32 capabilities, enabling users to incorporate it into their IoT projects with ease. This book will help you learn the essentials of sensing, networking, data processing, and applications with ESP32, laying a strong foundation for further IoT development. Starting with ESP32 and Arduino Ide 2.0 basics, you'll first explore practical implementation examples of interfacing sensors with ESP32. These examples will also teach you how to interface the ESP32 camera and display modules with ESP32. As you progress, you’ll get to grips with IoT network and data protocols, as well as the many options they unlock within IoT applications. The book will also help you leverage your newly acquired knowledge with exciting projects ranging from smart connected devices to data loggers and automation. By the end of this book, you'll confidently navigate ESP32 projects with newfound knowledge and skills, know what IoT protocol to select for your applications, and successfully build and deploy your own IoT projects.

Interfacing displays with ESP32

Displays are beneficial for IoT projects involving ESP32 due to their ability to provide visual feedback and enhance user interaction. With displays, real-time sensor data, system status, and notifications can be easily conveyed, improving user experience. Additionally, displays enable the creation of intuitive user interfaces, allowing users to interact with the IoT system directly and access information conveniently.

In this section, we will discuss various display options that can be interfaced with ESP32 and cover the following topics:

  • 16x2 LCD display
  • OLED display
  • TFT display with touch integration
  • E-paper display
  • Comparison of all the aforementioned displays

By the end of this section, you will have a solid understanding of how displays are interfaced with ESP32, and you will be able to select a suitable display for your next project.
