IoT Development With ESP32 - Build Exciting And Powerful IoT Projects
The ESP32 is a series of low-cost, low-power System-on-Chip (SoC) microcontrollers with integrated Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth. The ESP32 series uses a Tensilica Xtensa LX6 microprocessor in both dual-core and single-core variations and includes built-in antenna switches, RF balun, power amplifier, low-noise receive amplifier, filters, and power management modules.
Other components include around 48 I/O pins (variable) and an array of peripheral interfaces. The ESP32 is capable of functioning reliably in industrial environments, with an operating temperature ranging from –40°C to +125°C.
Engineered for mobile devices, wearable electronics, and IoT applications, ESP32 achieves ultra-low power consumption, combining several types of proprietary software. ESP32 also includes state-of-the-art features, such as fine-grained clock gating, various power modes, and dynamic power scaling.
The ESP32, a low-cost MCU with integrated Wi-Fi and BLE capabilities, comes with a variety of modules and development boards for building IoT applications efficiently. Wi-Fi and BLE are standard network stacks for Internet-of-Things applications providing cost-effective solutions for your business and project requirements.
This book is a fundamental guide for developing ESP32 programs and starts by explaining GPIO (General Purpose I/O) programming with sensor devices. The reader gets up to speed with ESP32 development through several IoT projects such as weather stations, sensor loggers, smart homes, Wi-Fi cams, and Wi-Fi wardriving. The reader learns how to use ESP32 boards to facilitate interactions between mobile applications and cloud servers, such as AWS.
By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to control a range of IoT projects using the ESP32 chip.
The Moddable SDK enables you to unlock the full potential of inexpensive microcontrollers like the ESP32 and ESP8266.
Coding for these microcontrollers in C or C++ with the ESP-IDF and Arduino SDKs works for building essential products but doesn't scale to handle the increasingly complex IoT products that customers expect.
It is estimated that trillions of devices will be interconnected over the next decade through the Internet of Things, demanding a considerable effort from developers. The emergence of cheap Espressif microcontrollers, featuring WiFi connectivity, allows independent developers to become part of this process quickly.
This book is not intended to teach you the theory comprehensively, but to give you practical and fully functional solutions, in the form of complete programs. Much of the theory is already known by some of the readers or may be found in many other textbooks. But the programs presented here include great effort and have many original solutions following one of the underlying paradigms of programming: "Keep i(o)t simple". And - the most important thing for such a book - all programs have already been verified by third parties, in this case, students from Hyperion University. They have provided precious feedback.
ESP32 WiFi, Bluetooth Classic, BLE, CAN Bus Module
This board comes with an onboard ESP32 WROOM-32 WiFi, Bluetooth Classic, BLE Module, and a CAN Bus port with a transceiver. Onboard is an RGB LED, IO pins on a 0.1" pad. Programming is accomplished with the USB-to-Serial converter with USB-C connector, automatic bootloader and reset.
