PLC, Arduino industrial. Temboo. Two Arduino-based Kickstarter projects worth a look. Two Arduino-based Kickstarter projects worth a look Zoe Romano — May 20th, 2013 Some weeks ago I read an article on the New York Times talking about Kickstarter.

Two Arduino-based Kickstarter projects worth a look

The author was exploring the logic of the platform and especially in which way backers shouldn’t really be considered like investors. They aren’t because their main aim is not looking for the project that will give them the greatest return on their money. Kickstarter as a phenomenon is made much more comprehensible once you realize that it’s not following the logic of the free market; it’s following the logic of the gift […] People contribute to them because they’re friends who know the artist personally; they’re fans engaged in a highly personal if unidirectional relationship with the artist [creator]; or simply because they’re intrigued by the project and want some sense of participation in it. Here we are then, highlighting two Arduino-based projects because we are intrigued by them and hope you like them too. Welcome Arduino Yún – the first member of a series of wifi products combining Arduino with Linux. Massimo Banzi announced it some minutes ago during his annual “The state of Arduino” presentation at Maker Faire Bay Area: Arduino Yún is the first of a revolutionary family of wifi products combining Arduino with Linux.

Welcome Arduino Yún – the first member of a series of wifi products combining Arduino with Linux

Yún means “cloud” in chinese language, as the purpose of this board to make it simple to connect to complex web services directly from Arduino. Designed in collaboration with Dog Hunter, a company with extensive experience with Linux, the board adopts the Linino distribution which provides signed packages to ensure the authenticity of the software installed on the device. Historically, interfacing Arduino with complex web services has been quite a challenge due to the limited memory available and they tend to use verbose text based formats like XML that require quite a lot or ram to parse.

On the Arduino Yún we have created the Bridge library which delegates all network connections and processing of HTTP transactions to the Linux machine. nRF51822 - Nordic Semiconductor. The nRF51 Series hardware support is provided by the nRF51 DK development kit and the nRF51 Dongle.

nRF51822 - Nordic Semiconductor

The nRF51 DK and nRF51 Dongle support the nRF51822 and nRF51422 SoCs and can support Bluetooth Smart, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary development. nRF51 software support are split in two major parts: SoftDevices containing wireless protocol stacks; and the nRF51 Software Development Kit (SDK) forming a common code base for all nRF51 devices. nRF51 DK and nRF51 Dongle support all Nordic SoftDevices and the nRF51 SDK. 3rd Party Boards 3rd Party Matching Baluns nRF51 DK The nRF51 DK is a versatile single-board development kit for Bluetooth Smart, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary applications using the nRF51 Series SoC. The kit is hardware compatible with the Arduino Uno Revision 3 standard, making it possible to use 3rd-party shields that are compatible to this standard with the kit. nRF51 Dongle Software The nRF51 series are supported by an extensive offering of Software.

Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2. Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2 is world’s smallest OBD-II emulator with KWP2000, ISO9141 and CAN bus simulation.

Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2

It provides an 16-pin female OBD-II port which is identical to that of a real car and responds to requests for standard OBD-II PIDs from plugged-in OBD-II compliant device. It emulates up to 6 active vehicle diagnostic trouble code (DTC) as if a real car has when encountering a component malfunction or fault. Request for VIN is also responded and the VIN can be altered. The emulator connects to PC via USB cable and is operated via an easy-to-use software GUI. Secondary development is possible with serial TTL connector available for connection of interaction with Arduino or other embedded system with source of data (e.g. sensors).
