MySensors Products The MySensors Sensebender boards are being manufactured and shipped by our partner Itead Studio.

MySensors Sensebender Micro is a compact Arduino compatible board that is stackable with the NRF24L01+ radio. Arduino compatible boards and Programmers This is probably the cheapest module. Radios. Wireless outdoor Arduino weather station with PC logging and Graphs. I wanted to have a log of outdoor weather with PC logging and graphs for quite some time now.

Wireless outdoor Arduino weather station with PC logging and Graphs

There are such devices in the market but their cost is really high. So, decided to build one by myself and enjoy the experience too. Features Temperature, Humidity and barometric pressure measurement No external power for outdoor sensors required (solar powered) Wireless communication between outdoor sensor and PC Full logging and reporting on weather information on PC Relatively inexpensive and easy to build Code is also available at Components of the solution Arduino compatible Seedstudio Stalker board for remote sensors.

Notes about the components: Battery: I built the outdoor sensor unit with 2000mAh battery, however by monitoring the device for few months now, including winter I can tell you this is really an overkill as the battery does not get drained or even close to that.

Understanding Z-Wave Networks, Nodes & Devices

The radio layer, network layer and application layer work together to create a robust and reliable network that enables numerous nodes and devices to communicate with each other simultaneously. Radio Layer: Defines the way a signal is exchanged between network and the physical radio hardware. This includes frequency, encoding, hardware access, etc.Network Layer: Defines how control data is exchanged between two devices or nodes.

This includes addressing, network organisation, routing, etc.Application Layer: Defines which messages need to be handled by specific applications in order to accomplish particular tasks such as switching a light or changing the temperature of a heating device. The Network Layer The Z-Wave network layer controls how data is exchanged between different devices (nodes) on the network, it consists of three sub-layers. The Media Access (MAC) and Transport Layers Explained Occasionally, a message may get lost. ZigBee. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

ZigBee

ZigBee est un protocole de haut niveau permettant la communication de petites radios, à consommation réduite, basée sur la norme IEEE 802.15.4 pour les réseaux à dimension personnelle (Wireless Personal Area Networks : WPAN). Ratifiées le 14 décembre 2004, les spécifications de ZigBee 1.0 sont disponibles auprès des membres de la communauté industrielle ZigBee Alliance. Guide to gyro and accelerometer with Arduino including Kalman filtering. Hallo everybodyI recently bought this analog 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) IMU board ( from watterott.com.

Guide to gyro and accelerometer with Arduino including Kalman filtering

It uses three gyros and three accelerometers to calculate angles in three dimensions. I looked a while for some code online and how to connect with them. After many hours of research I succeeded of making af precise measurement of angles in two directions. I decided to write a short guide for fellow electronic enthusiasts. The main purpose of this guide is to teach others how to get some useful data from their IMU or just a gyro or accelerometer. Before you begin you have to connect the IMU as follows: Acc_Gyro Arduino3.3V <--> 3.3V GND <--> GNDGx4 X <--> AN0Gx4 Y <--> AN1Gx4 Z <--> AN2Acc X <--> AN3 Acc Y <--> AN4 Acc Z <--> AN5 Also connect 3.3V to the AREF pin on the Arduino for more accuracy.It is VERY important that you do not connect the sensor to 5V - this will destroy the sensor.

Now your are ready for reading some data from the sensor. Atan2 has a output range from -? Sources:
