"Embedded Internet" refers to the use of the Internet to monitor and control machinery, appliances, communications equipment, data acquisition systems, process control systems, medical equipment, PDAs, and many other devices. This book explores how to design and construct microcontroller systems that are Internet-active, and offers a collection of design applications that have been fully tested and validated. Aimed at embedded systems designers, this text provides a "cookbook" of functional design modules that can be reused in any number of applications. The authors guide the reader through building various sensors and control devices that connect to the TINI interfaces. They explain how to write programs that control them in Java, and then they tie them all together in numerous practical applications. The illustrated book has many examples of code that can be run on Windows and Linux platforms. All Java source presented in the book is included on the accompanying CD.
