Information Display System using WeMOS and MAX7219

May 12th, 2017 No comments

This tutorial is all about making a WiFi based information display system using WeMOS

This tutorial is all about making a WiFi based information display system. This system is built around ESP8266 but not the standalone ESP8266 instead WeMOS is used and programmed using Arduino IDE. So In this video, we will check out how to make an information display system like that using Wemos and MAX7219 based dot matrix display modules. The display system fetches data from the local/online server and displays the received. In this system, u can display any data that you want and that’s up to you however over here I am using this to display my YouTube subscribers and twitter followers count.

Programming Onion Omega using PHP

May 1st, 2017 No comments

This video demonstrates how to program Onion Omega 2 using PHP. It also includes accessing GPIO of onion Omega by using PHP.Programming Onion Omega using PHP. Omega2, the $5 IoT computer.It is a Linux computer designed specifically for building connected hardware applications. It combines the tiny form factor and power efficiency of the Arduino, with the power and flexibilities of the Raspberry Pi.

The Omega2 is simple, even for people who are just getting started with building hardware.The Omega2 is affordable, starting at just $5.
With the Omega2, we want to lower the barrier of entry and allow everyone to take the leap into hardware development.

IIC

This tutorial is all about IIC (I2C) communication on Raspberry Pi by using JAVA and for that, I have used Pi4J library. To demonstrate this in the tutorial I have used MCP23017 Port expander IC with Raspberry Pi. MCp23017 is a 16 Bit input/output Port Expander ICcomes with I2C Interface. To interact with the IC suing IIC (I2C) port  here we have used Pi4J and JAVA.

MCP23017 Features:
16-bit input/output port expander with interrupt output
Cascadable for up to 8 devices on one bus
25mA sink/source capability per I/O
Supports 100kHz, 400kHz, and 1.7MHz I2C™Compatible compatible modes

Fetching data from server | Arduino/ESP8266

December 9th, 2016 2 comments

Arduino/ESP8266Arduino/ESP8266: Fetching data to Server (LOCAL and Online) using WifiClient on from the ESP8266 module using Arduino IDE.

The chip first came to the attention of western makers in August 2014 with the ESP-01 module, made by a third-party manufacturer, AI-Thinker. This small module allows microcontrollers to connect to a Wi-Fi network and make simple TCP/IP connections using Hayes-style commands. However, at the time there was almost no English-language documentation on the chip and the commands it accepted.The very low price and the fact that there were very few external components on the module which suggests that it could eventually be very inexpensive in volume, attracted many hackers to explore the module, chip, and the software on it, as well as to translate the Chinese documentation.
