Book Description

BeagleBone is a microboard PC that runs Linux. It can connect to the Internet and can run OSes such as Android and Ubuntu. BeagleBone is used for a variety of different purposes and projects, from simple projects such as building a thermostat to more advanced ones such as home security systems.

Packed with real-world examples, this book will provide you with examples of how to connect several sensors and an actuator to the BeagleBone Black. You’ll learn how to give access to them, in order to realize simple-to-complex monitoring and controlling systems that will help you take control of the house. You will also find software examples of implementing web interfaces using the classical PHP/HTML pair with JavaScript, using complex APIs to interact with a Google Docs account, WhatsApp, or Facebook. This guide is an invaluable tutorial if you are planning to use a BeagleBone Black in a home automation project.

What you will learn

  • Build a CO (and other gas) sensor with a buzzer/LED alarm to signal high concentrations
  • Log environment data and plot it in a fancy manner
  • Develop a simple web interface with a LAMP platform
  • Prepare complex web interfaces in JavaScript and get to know how to stream video data from a webcam
  • Use APIs to get access to a Google Docs account or a WhatsApp/Facebook account to manage a home automation system
  • Add custom device drivers to manage an LED with different blinking frequencies
  • Discover how to work with electronic components to build small circuits
  • Use an NFS, temperature sensor, relays, and other peripherals to monitor and control your surroundings
