Here is a new book for the group to use. Below is from the author:

This comprehensive book provides detailed materials for both novice and experienced programmers using all BeagleBone variants which host a powerful 32-bit, super-scalar TI Sitara ARM Cortex A8 processor. Authored by Steven F. Barrett and Jason Kridner, a seasoned ECE educator along with the founder of Beagleboard.org, respectively, the work may be used in a wide variety of projects from science fair projects to university courses and senior design projects to first prototypes of very complex systems. Beginners may access the power of the "Bone" through the user-friendly Bonescript examples. Seasoned users may take full advantage of the Bone's power using the underlying Linux-based operating system, a host of feature extension boards (Capes) and a wide variety of Linux community open source libraries. The book contains background theory on system operation coupled with many well-documented, illustrative examples. Examples for novice users are centered on motivational, fun robot projects while advanced projects follow the theme of assistive technology and image processing applications

Another new book for the group. Below is from the author:

Z-Wave is the leading international standard for wireless communication in Smart Homes. Different products from different vendors work together and interoperate in one single network to provide intelligent lighting, safety, security and energy efficiency. This book describes all you need to know about Z-Wave: The radio layer standardized by the international ITU organization, the networking between the device to realize a stable communication and finally the device specific application functions that ensure the interoperability between the different devices. Practical guidance for the installation and trouble shooting of wireless networks is provided as well.

Yet another new book for the group. Below is from the author:

A dozen fiendishly fun projects for the Raspberry Pi!
This wickedly inventive guide shows you how to create all kinds of entertaining and practical projects with Raspberry Pi operating system and programming environment. In Raspberry Pi Projects for the Evil Genius, you’ll learn how to build a Bluetooth-controlled robot, a weather station, home automation and security controllers, a universal remote, and even a minimalist website. You’ll also find out how to establish communication between Android devices and the RasPi.

Each fun, inexpensive Evil Genius project includes a detailed list of materials, sources for parts, schematics, and lots of clear, well-illustrated instructions for easy assembly. The larger workbook-style layout makes following the step-by-step instructions a breeze.

Build these and other devious devices:

LED blinker
MP3 player
Camera controller
Bluetooth robot
Earthquake detector
Home automation controller
Weather station
Home security controller
RFID door latch
Remote power controller
Radon detector
