In this chapter, we analyzed the requirements to control a vehicle with MQTT messages.

We understood the methods we needed to call for the Paho Python Client and their parameters. We analyzed how callbacks worked and we wrote code to subscribe to topic filters as well as to receive and process messages.

We wrote code that processed commands for a vehicle with Python. The code is able to run on different IoT platforms, including Raspberry Pi 3 family boards, Qualcomm DragonBoard, BeagleBone Black, ...
