Book Description

2 April 2012
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a global network that links physical objects using Cloud computing, web applications, and network communications. It allows devices to communicate with each other, access information on the Internet, store and retrieve data, and interact with users, creating smart, pervasive and always-connected environments.

Despite the Internet of Things being a relatively new concept, there are already a few open platforms available that enable remote and seamless management and visualization of sensor data: Cosm, Nimbits, and ThingSpeak are just a few examples. And Arduino works with all of them.

The Arduino is an incredibly flexible micro-controller and development environment that cannot only be used to control devices, but can also be used to read data from all kinds of sensors. Its simplicity and extensibility, in addition to its great success and adoption by users, has led to the development of a variety of hardware extensions and software libraries that enable wired and wireless communication with the Internet. Arduino is the ideal open hardware platform for experimenting with the world of the Internet of Things.

Make your Arduino talk to the world!

This book will provide you with all the information you need to design and create your own Internet of Things (IoT) applications using the Arduino platform.

More specifically, you will learn:
  • About the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing concepts
  • About open platforms that allow you to store your sensor data on the Cloud (like Cosm, Nimbits and many more)
  • The basic usage of Arduino environment for creating your own embedded projects at low cost
  • How to connect your Arduino with your Android phone and send data over the Internet
  • How to connect your Arduino directly to the Internet and talk to the Cloud
  • How to reprogram your Arduino microcontroller remotely through the Cloud

  • Detailed Table of Contents can be found at: http://www.buildinginternetofthings.com

    Updated version (v1.1): Contains corrections, improvements and updates about IoT Platforms!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book 15 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good write-up of the concept of the Internet of Things. Essentially the concept is that everything and anything can be internet-enabled and can interact in some way with a web browser or similar. Think of a room thermometer that can log temperatures to a data-logging web site or perhaps your car tweeting it's fuel-level. Anything is possible!
Charalampos covers the concept and gives examples with code over the book. Rather than being a pure project book with component lists and code it talks a great deal around the examples and gives you a good grounding and platform to branch out and do your own designs.
All in all a good read and thought-provoking subject matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about Internet of Things and DIY projects: 6 April 2012
By David Hayden - Published on Amazon.com
This is my first book about arduino and internet communication. I have learned a lot from the book, especially about cloud computing and protocols for communication. I like the way the book is structured. Although I am not very experienced programmer it was easy to build most of the projects on the book. (some of them require various equipment, easy to get but you may consider the cost). I also liked the fact that the author is easily accessible and always willing to answer my questions and help with the projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide To Using Arduino, Sensors, & Android With The Internet of Things 28 Mar 2012
By Ira Laefsky - Published on Amazon.com
This excellent guide by a skilled practitioner introduces the Arduino, or Microcontroller Enthusiast to a new range of applications, where sensor data coming from the home, the environment, or health and fitness appliances can be shared and analyzed by remote applications on the Web or through Web Services and Cloud-based Applications. This introduces the Microcontroller Hobbyist and Professionals to the new world of "The Internet of Things". Dr. Doukas is an expert in Microcontrollers, Health Information Technology, Electronics, Bioengineering and Data Analytics as well as so-called Cloud Computing. He provides careful introduction in separate chapters on use of Sensors and Actuators, Microcontrollers, emphasizing the Open Source Arduino, the range and capabilities of Cloud/Web Services for Sensor Data Storage and Analysis. For performing the more advanced projects in the second half of the book some exposure to electronics, programming the Arduino in C and Java Applications is recommended, but these can be easily learned from the sources recommended in the book and an extensive supporting website (search Google for Building Internet of Things) or look at the book's pointer.

This is an excellent introduction to two of the most important technologies in the Maker's and Engineer's toolkit Using Microcontrollers for Sensor and Communication Applications, and the emerging Internet of Things (perhaps the single most important technology advance of the decade).

In addition to the excellent resources provided by this book, the author's website provides downloads of all code, necessary external libraries and magnified full color illustrations. The author is a rising talent in the world of hobbyists and practicing engineers. I heartily recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb compendium of a dynamic field 16 May 2012
By Pete Karagiannis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's still early days for IoT, yet Charalampos has done a great job of getting information on the quickly emerging world of physical computing out of the academic realm and into the hands of practitioners who just want to 'build stuff'. Like any emerging field, one needs to consider both the fundamentals and the state of the art. The web is great place for "did you hear about X? They just released Y!" But if one lacks the requisite background in Arduino [they may have an electronics, software development or computer science background but not all 3], yet wants to quickly get up to speed on the fundamentals of Arduino and the Internet of Things, this book will give you some intermediate projects to help you build on your more advanced ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of interesting topics, cool projects 12 April 2012
By John R. - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a great introduction for making projects with the Arduino and connecting them to internet applications. It covers communicating using wireless, bluetooth and ethernet networks. It presents very cool projects, I have enjoyed mostly the sms automation that uses Android communication and the one that teaches how to make your own sensor application on the google engine.

The print quality could be better but is acceptable (given also the price level).
I recommend the book to anyone already familiar with the Arduino and programming knowledge (book not for very beginners)
