About

Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the way devices/things interact with each other. And when you have IoT with Python on your side, you'll be able to build interactive objects and design them.

This book lets you stay at the forefront of cutting-edge research on IoT. We'll open up the possibilities using tools that enable you to interact with the world, such as Intel Galileo Gen 2, sensors, and other hardware. You will learn how to read, write, and convert digital values to generate analog output by programming Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) in Python. You will get familiar with the complex communication system included in the board, so you can interact with any shield, actuator, or sensor.

Later on, you will not only see how to work with data received from the sensors, but also perform actions by sending them to a specific shield. You'll be able to connect your IoT device to the entire world, by integrating WiFi, Bluetooth, and Internet settings. With everything ready, you will see how to work in real time on your IoT device using the MQTT protocol in python.

By the end of the book, you will be able to develop IoT prototypes with Python, libraries, and tools.

Features
  • Rapidly prototype even complex IoT applications with Python and put them to practical use
  • Enhance your IoT skills with the most up-to-date applicability in the field of wearable tech, smart environments, and home automation
  • Interact with hardware, sensors, and actuators and control your DIY IoT projects through Python
