Book Description

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. This book covers many of the powerful features of the Arduino Yún via four exciting projects. The first project is all about sending weather measurements 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 is in relation with the field of robotics, and focuses on building a robot that is controlled via Wi-Fi.

The main focus of this book is to teach everything you need to know to build complex projects using the Arduino Yún, organized around the fields of home automation, security, and robotics.
