About the author:

Marco Schwartz is an electrical engineer, entrepreneur, and blogger. He has a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Supélec in France and a Master's degree in Micro Engineering from the EPFL in Switzerland. Marco has more than five years of experience in the domain of electrical engineering. His interests gravitate around electronics, home automation, the Arduino and Raspberry Pi platforms, open source hardware projects, and 3D printing.

Internet of Things (IoT) is currently a growing trend in the technology space, and the Arduino Yún is the perfect board to get started with building IoT projects.

Internet of Things with the Arduino Yún covers many of the powerful features of the Arduino Yún via four exciting projects. The first project is all about sending weather measurement data to a Google Docs spreadsheet for easy online visualization. The second one is about building an energy consumption meter and controlling devices remotely. The third focuses on the field of security by helping you to build a camera that is triggered by motion and that uploads pictures automatically to Dropbox. Finally, the last project relates to the field of robotics and focuses on building a robot that is controlled via Wi-Fi. The book also teaches readers how to send sensor measurements to Google Docs via Temboo, interface the Arduino Yún with Twitter via Temboo, and how to create automated e-mail alerts based on measured data.

The following are the chapters covered in the book:

Chapter 1: Building a Weather Station Connected to the Cloud

Chapter 2: Creating a Remote Energy Monitoring and Control Device

Chapter 3: Making Your Own Cloud-connected Camera

Chapter 4: Creating a Wi-Fi-controlled Mobile Robot
