Sebastopol, CA—Get ready to create distributed sensor systems and intelligent interactive devices using the ZigBee wireless networking protocol and XBee radios. By the time you're halfway through this fast-paced, hands-on guide—Building Wireless Sensor Networks (O'Reilly Media, $34.99 USD)—you'll have built a series of useful projects, including a complete ZigBee wireless network that delivers remotely sensed data.
"Until now there's been no full guide to creating sensor networks that's appropriate for non-engineers," says author Rob Faludi (@faludi). "Building Wireless Sensor Networks is appropriate for researchers, hackers, crafters, artists, inventors, and scientists. They will want this hands-on, fast lane guide to help develop robust wireless sensor networks, and intelligent interactive devices.
"The information and structure of the book is really perfect for anyone creating hands-on networks," Faludi continues, "especially those who don't have a computer science background or electrical engineering degree. The focus here is on getting things done, with plenty of references to further information for those that need it or are just plain curious."
Radio networking is creating revolutions in volcano monitoring, performance art, clean energy, and consumer electronics. As you follow the examples in each chapter, you'll learn how to tackle inspiring projects of your own. This practical guide is ideal for inventors, hackers, crafters, students, hobbyists, and scientists.
