Sensor Projects with Raspberry Pi: Internet of Things and Digital Image Processing
Start solving world issues by beginning small with simple Rasperry Pi projects. Using a free IoT server; tackle fundamental topics and concepts behind the Internet of Things. Image processing and sensor topics aren’t only applicable to the Raspberry Pi. The skills learned in this book can go own to other applications in mobile development and electrical engineering.
Start by creating a system to detect movement through the use of a PIR motion sensor and a Raspberry Pi board. Then further your sensor systems by detecting more than simple motion. Use the MQ2 gas sensor and a Raspberry Pi board as a gas leak alarm system to detect dangerous explosive and fire hazards. Train your system to send the captured data to the remote server ThingSpeak. When a gas increase is detected beyond a limit, then a message is sent to your Twitter account.
