MKR1000 OSH: Schematics The MKR1000 is open-source hardware! You can build your own board using the following files: Pinout Download the pinout in PNG format An Arduino-compatible, electronic building block system! by GHI Electronics, LLC FEZ Medusa is an open source hardware (OSHW) processor board that combines the Arduino platform with an ever-growing list of modules, for sensing and controlling things. This modular design of building blocks does not require any hardware experience, we call it FEZ for fast and easy. On the software side, you will program using the Arduino IDE, just like if you were programming Arduino Uno, it even hosts the same micro ATMEGA328P. On the hardware side, everything is modular building blocks using a unified socket map. Arduino is one of the most popular platforms for educators and hobbyists. Its open source JAVA IDE is made to run on Windows, Linux and Mac.

ARTIK GET A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON loT. Rethink how you get to market with the Samsung ARTIKTM loT ecosystem. Samsung ARTIK is the end-to-end, integrated loT platform that transforms the process of developing, launching, and managing loT products. With a flexible, open ecosystem, from silicon totools to cloud, plus an extensive array oftechnology partners, you can shorten yourdevelopment cycle to a degree you never thoughtpossible. Which Board is Right for Me? For a few months after Raspberry Pi came out, the choice was pretty simple. If you wanted to talk to arbitrary electronics, your best bet was to buy an Arduino microcontroller board; if you needed the power of an ARM-based processor to run Linux, the Raspberry Pi single-board computer (SBC) was the obvious choice (that is, if you could get your hands on one. Delivery issues are mostly resolved, but last year some people waited more than six months for their Pi).

The Ultimate IoT Challenge Using ARTIK Cloud Full rules Eligibility criteria: Contestants must (a) be at least 16 years of age, (b) be a resident of a country other than Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria, (c) not be involved in the execution or administration of the Contest, and (d) not be an employee (or the immediate family member or a household member of an employee) of, or Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. (“Samsung”) or a Samsung affiliate. Contestants are referred to as “you,” and Hackster, Samsung, and Samsung’s affiliates are collectively referred to herein as “we” or “us.” To be eligible for judging, an entry must meet all of the following content and technical requirements:

Feeding power to Arduino: the ultimate guide Let’s deal with the problems of the various powering modes for the most famous Arduino boards, in order to overcome doubts users may have and to provide useful advices. When you want to use an Arduino board in stand-alone mode, the first problem to face is the one of how to power it, once it is disconnected from the computer’s USB port. Unfortunately, a faulty knowledge of the theme of powering sometimes leads people to make unforgivable mistakes, since the first result is often that of seeing the board go up in smoke and almost always irremediably, since from that moment it will not work any more. In the premise it is good to point out that the article will deal with the powering modes of the Arduino boards operating at 5 V (UNO, MEGA, Duemilanove); a short, specific note will be dedicated to Arduino YÚN, that is still a 5 V board, but with features that are different from the other ones.

Tour - Handbook Tools for Rapid Prototyping with Microcontrollers Microcontrollers are getting cheaper, more powerful and more flexible, but there remains a barrier to a host of new applications; someone has to build the first prototypes. Without the right tools, implementation details can quickly get in the way of productive prototyping and experimentation. A very cheap ESP8266 WiFi smart car controlled by phone based on NodeMCU DoitCar is designed and developed by Shenzhen Doctors of Intelligence & Technology (SZDOIT), which is the most cost-effective. It is widely applied in many fields, sucha as the electronic lover, college students, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile data collection, etc. DoitCar has a great temptation for the smart car solution.

Arduino Tutorial - Lesson 5 We've done a lot so far, blinking lights, printing messages...all of that stuff is output: signals coming from the Arduino. The next step is to start playing with input, with the Arduino responding to outside events. In this lesson we will begin with the most basic kind of input, a push-button switch! You're probably familiar with switches, there's tons of them in your house.

Up and flying with the AR.Drone and ROS: Getting started Updated December 17th. In this tutorial (#1) we will: Install ROS, the AR.Drone driver and AR.Drone keyboard controllerFly the AR.Drone using the provided keyboard controller In tutorials 2-5, we will: Modify the keyboard controller to work with a joystick or control pad, giving much finer control (link)Look more closely at the data sent back from the drone and play with the onboard tag detection (link)Write a controller for the drone to enable tag followingWrite a controller for the drone which allows us to control drone velocity, rather than body angle Updates:

ESP8266: Weather Station V2 Code published This is a total make over of the earlier weather station. Instead of building my code on the NodeMCU lua firmware I decided to switch to the Arduino IDE based development setup. The reason for this was the constant problems with heap memory running out and other instabilities. Embedded Web Server for FreeRTOS using uIP TCP/IP stack on the Philips LPC2124 ARM7 From FreeRTOS V4.0.3, this demo requires CrossWorks V1.6 or higher. This demo application uses the FreeRTOS GCC ARM7 port along with the Rowley Associates CrossWorks integrated development tools to create a multitasking embedded web server example. The example executes 12 of the standard demo application tasks, the idle task, and a task containing Adam Dunkels uIP (µIP) embedded TCP/IP stack and sample small web server. FreeRTOS has made some modifications to the uIP stack since this demo was created. See the Embedded Ethernet Examples List page for more information. The demo is preconfigured to execute on the LPC-E2124 embedded Ethernet development board (instructions are provided should you wish to use an alternative development board), for which the uIP TCP/IP stack port and embedded Ethernet device drivers were provided by Paul Curtis of Rowley Associates.
