Have you heard about IoT?? A simple way to describe Internet of Things (IoT) is controlling or monitoring any device through the Internet, which are embedded with sensors, software, network connectivity and necessary electronics that enables them to collect and exchange
Interested to build your own Internet-of-Things (IoT) project? Now, it’s the right time to do it. ESPert is an platform that allow anyone to develop their own IoT connected solutions easily and affordably. By using ESPresso Lite V2.0, you can create any
If you are using UC00A, UC00B, or FTDI cable, or any UART devices, did you ask the questions: Is the UART working? Is the transmit pin is transmitting data? Is the receive pin receive data? You want to check whether
Introduction Fingerprint Reader Integrated SM630 is a fingerprint verification module. It consists of optical fingerprint sensor, high performance DSP processor and Flash. It boasts of functions such as fingerprint login, fingerprint deletion, fingerprint verification, fingerprint upload, fingerprint download,etc. By interfacing with
Bluetooth wireless communication is becoming more and more common recently. In response to this trend, Cytron Technologies has came up with a new Bluetooth module called BlueBee, which provides hobbyists a wireless remote control on their microcontroller circuits thus robots through serial port communication service attached with BlueBee. In the section, a simple project will be constructed to illustrate how to use BlueBee for wireless communication to interface another Cytron product, breadboard friendly Arduino, BBFuino to control LEDs.
BBFuino is a clone of Arduino which is specially designed to fit onto breadboard for prototyping and learning purposes. Like Arduino, it can be used to develop interactive objects like taking inputs from switches or sensors, controlling a variety of light motors and other physical outputs. BBFuino is using Atmel microcontroller Atmega328 loaded with Optiboot bootloader. This feature makes it compatible to Arduino IDE and sample codes provided by Arduino.
