Over the air data transfer

I want to connect a presence sensor over the air to nvidia jetson TX2. how do I do this, since there are no procedures for this and I am pretty new at this [using nvidia Jetson]. i am using esp8266 nodeMCU to connect to Nvidia Jetson, tried using mqtt, can’t rap my head around it. Kindly need help. Thanks

I think I posted it in the advanced forum

We have a dedicated Jetson TX2 forum (https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/board/188/jetson-tx2/ ). Best to post your question there ;)
