With the rapid development of the Internet of Things, a gap has emerged in skills versus knowledge in an industry typically segmented into hardware versus software. Practitioners are now expected to possess capabilities across the spectrum of hardware and software skills to create these smart devices.
This book explores these skill sets in an instructive way, beginning at the foundations of what makes "smart" technology smart, addressing the basics of hardware and hardware design, software, user experiences, and culminating in the considerations and means of building a fully formed smart device, capable of being used in a commercial capacity, versus a DIY project.
Practical Smart Device Design and Construction includes a set of starter projects designed to encourage the novice to build and learn from doing. Each project also includes a summary guiding you where to go next, and how to tie the practical, hands-on experience together with what they have learned to take the next step on their own.
What You'll Learn
Practical smart device design and construction considerations such as size, power consumption, wiring needs, analog vs digital, and sensor types and uses
Methods and tools for creating their own designs such as circuit board designs; and wiring and prototyping tools
Hands-on guidance through their own prototype projects and building it alongside the projects in this book
Software considerations for speed versus ease, security, and basics of programming and data analytics for smart devices

Who This Book Is For
Those with some technical skills, or at least a familiarity with technical topics, who are looking for the means and skills to start experimenting with combined hardware and software projects in order to gain familiarity and comfort with the smart device space.
