Employ the Intel Galileo board to design a world of smarter technology for your home
This book starts by teaching you the essentials of the Intel Galileo board, its components, how to wire it, and how to use it safely. The book will teach you how to use and combine simple sensors to build more complex connected objects with the help of an Internet connection. You'll also learn how to control and read from your sensors by building a number of interesting projects. Finally, the book will familiarize you with the art of controlling your objects using mobile devices.
By the end of the book, you'll be able to understand the key concepts of the Internet of Things, and what a "Thing" truly is. This book will make you ready and also more aware of what you can do with a Galileo board, while inspiring you with more ideas to build your own home projects.
