Another great book from PacktPub. The subtitle is great to give a short description on what this book is about: “Integrate sensors into your Raspberry Pi projects and let your powerful microcomputer interact with the physical world“.
It begins with an introduction to Linux, basic electronics, communication protocols, so everyone who is interested in the topic can begin tinkering, you don’t need to be an embedded Linux expert. The chapters cover very interesting topics like measuring distance using ultrasonic sensors, measuring temperature, air pressure, humidity, using a photoresistor, an A/D converter, how to process and store gathered data, and lastly how to use OpenCV for simple image processing.
I recommend this book for everyone who want to learn building something with sensors connected to the Raspberry Pi.
