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 Li-Po batteries, Pins and board LEDs CC-6LoWPAN The CC-6LOWPAN-DK-868 Kit is 868/915 MHz development kit based on hardware from Texas Instruments and software from its third party Sensinode Ltd. The kit uses Wireless Network Processor (WNP) firmware on the CC1180 system on chip (SoC). The CC1180 WNP allows you to separate the 6LoWPAN stack from the applications processor, enabling a faster time to market. The kit also uses a library version of the software stack to run both user application and 6LoWPAN stack on the CC430 SoC. The kit comes preloaded with software and firmware that supports IPv6 pinging of the nodes from a PC.

15 Predictions for Tech and Design in 2015 It’s our favorite time of year, when frogs from around the world examine the state of technology’s future. Below you’ll find 15 declarations and projections from experts whose work continually advances the human experience. This compilation forecasts a few of our expectations for the future, and we look forward to your feedback as we collectively consider what is to come. iotsys - IoTSyS - Internet of Things integration middleware IoTSyS is an integration middleware for the Internet of Things. It provides a communication stack for embedded devices based on IPv6, Web services and oBIX to provide interoperable interfaces for smart objects. Using 6LoWPAN for constrained wireless networks and the Constrained Application Protocol together with Efficient XML Interchange an efficient stack is provided allowing using interoperable Web technologies in the field of sensor and actuator networks and systems while remaining nearly as efficient regarding transmission message sizes as existing automation systems. The IoTSyS middleware aims providing a gateway concept for existing sensor and actuator systems found in nowadays home and building automation systems, a stack which can be deployed directly on embedded 6LoWPAN devices and further addresses security, discovery and scalability issues.

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. The DoitCar kit is including the car chassis, 2 pieces of 6V motors, NodeMCU WiFi board, motor driven shield board.

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. When I finally found code that demonstrated the use of my beloved SSD1306 based OLED 128×64 displays the final piece was in place. WeatherBug: ESP8266 WeatherStation with IFTTT and HomeKit support I assume you're familiar with Daniel Eichhorn's ESP8266 Weather Station. I modified it to do a little more. Hardware changes Used a WeMos D1 mini with the DHT shield

Enginursday: First Impressions of the ESP32 An overview of Espressif's sequel to the ESP8266 - a new WiFi/Bluetooth-enabled system-on-chip, with a massive GPIO count. Favorited Favorite 3 Last year, the ESP8266 took the embedded IoT world by storm. For less than $10, you could get a programmable, WiFi-enabled microcontroller with just enough GPIO to wiggle some LEDs and monitor some sensors. NEW PRODUCT – Espressif ESP32 Development Board – Developer Edition September 21, 2016 AT 11:25 am NEW PRODUCT – Espressif ESP32 Development Board – Developer Edition The ESP8266 started a small revolution by bringing WiFi to a small and cheap package that also had enough processing power and enough pins to get small things done. Now get ready to take your bite-sized WiFi capabilities to the next level with the ESP32 Development Board! The development board breaks out all the module’s pins to 0.1″ headers and provides a CP2102 USB-TTL serial adapter, programming and reset buttons, and a power regulator to supply the ESP32 with a stable 3.3 V. Espressif doubled-down on the CPU resources for the ESP32 with a dual core, running at 160MHz and tons more pins and peripherals.

Getting Started with NodeMCU Board Powered by ESP8266 WiSoC Since ESP8266 is now so popular, I’ve recently bought a NodeMCU board to try it. I selected this board because the latest version of the board is breadboard-friendly, integrates a USB to serial chip, and it can be powered by a simple USB to micro USB cable. I also noticed a ESP8266 tutorial with NodeMCU firmware by SwitchDoc Labs the other day (using ESP-12 and Adafruit Huzzah), which I applied to my NodeMCU board, but since I encountered a few issues, I decided to report my findings, and write my own little getting started guide to switch on/off LED and GPIOs using a web interface.
