Now that you know what sensor networks are and even how to build sensor nodes using an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi, it’s time to do something really cool with your Raspberry Pi. The last chapter discussed the various ways you can store data from your sensors. One of the most reliable and the most versatile is storing your sensor data in a database. This chapter explores using a Raspberry Pi as a database server.

While this has always been an option with the Raspberry Pi starting from the older version 2B boards, it is even more an option ...
