Evothings – Part 1 Setup

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link The greatest thing that happened after the introduction of Arduino was the Evothings + Cordova framework. Evothings workbench is both a framework and a just in time debugger. It uses Cordova in its core, and its programming language is the notorious Javascript. Applications are written in HTML/CSS for their GUI and Javascript for their logic, yes just like a website…. Read Article →

ESP8266 Tutorial Part 2 – Connect to WiFi and Download from the Internet

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link In part one of this series, we gave an introduction to the ESP8266, setting the IDE and the circuitry needed to get started. In this post, we will go through some basic software capabilities particularly connecting to a WiFi network, and establishing a connection to a web server to download data. The ESP8266 is not an Arduino, it is only… Read Article →

The ESP8266 – A Tutorial – Part 1 Environment Setup

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link Introduction The Internet of Things is a relatively new concept in the world of electronics. It was also quite expensive and maybe even unreachable by some hobbyists. The introduction of the ESP8266 changed that perception forever. Being first designed as a simple Serial WiFi adapter; today it is the most common IoT device among electronic hobbyists and hackers alike. The… Read Article →

Transceiver 433mhz

Arduino 433Mhz RF Wireless Data Transfer

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link The most practical and cool way of sharing data from 1 Arduino to another is by far using a radio transmitter and receiver. The simplest form of wireless transmission (I could find) is the 433Mhz ASK modules. They come in pairs, a receiver and a transmitter. They are ridiculously cheap, selling at $1 or less a pair!! These modules provide… Read Article →

Arduino Ultrasonic Range Finder – HC-SR04

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link In this tutorial we present a method of measuring the distance between an Arduino and nearby objects. It is of particular use for automated robots for giving them ‘eyes’ to look out for nearby objects, measure the distances between them, and acting upon that distance. We present the HC-SR04 range finder sensor The cheap sensors normally have 2 cylindrical objects… Read Article →




Digispark

Introduction to Digispark

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link In today’s blog post we’ll analyze one of the smallest and most practical boards out there. The Digispark board. It’s size, including the USB port, is 25mm x 18mm (so tiny)!! This little board is powered by an ATTINY85 chip and clocked to 16.5Mhz. For conveniece, it has a built in USB port and can be plugged into a your… Read Article →

Arduino Beginner’s Course Lesson 5– Installing and Using Libraries

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino’ from this link Libraries are an essential part in the Arduino world. They are what makes Arduino so easy to use. Libraries are written to encapsulate complex functions and expose them as simple function calls to the user. For example to switch a pixel on and off in an LED monitor. This is relatively very complex but, fortunately some folks at Adafruit created… Read Article →
