Nodemcu arduino interfacing project

A guide to getting started with the ESP8266 with the Arduino IDE This assumes that yo have a NodeMCU type board with the Silicon Labs CP2102 USB to UART Bridge. These boards are convenient because they can be connected directly to your computer for progamming and serial console. NodeMCU pin functions First install the  Silicon Labs CP2102 USB to UART Bridge driver for your operating system. Then follow the ...

How to use ESP8266 ESP-01 as a SENSOR web client

I’m not going to explain in detail what is ESP8266 because if you have found this post I’m sure you already know it. But just in case, it is an awesome cheap board (less than 4$) with built-in wifi communication (802.11 b/g/n), and SPI, UART. You can also use its processor to run your code. Wiring: Use FTDI with 3V3 output. If you face problems with this running on Windows check this link: Unbrick FTDI 232R ...

ESP8266 + DS18B20 Temperature sensor sends data to Thingspeak.com

Its been a while i was searching for a cheap wifi module and with the help of smart-prototyping.com, i was able to get a module almost less than USD 5. To connect the module to breadboard for prototyping, i made a small jig to interconnect with the board easily. So i can wire up the device and interface anything to GPIO's. Be careful with the module cause the device it powered with 3.3V and both UART side l ...

ESP8266: Arduino compatible $5 MCU with WiFi

This is the 1st part of a series of 3 posts on the new ESP8266 microcontroller I only talk about a bare handful of new boards because most of them don’t pass my test: whether they’ll let me do something today that I couldn’t do yesterday. But every once in a while a new board, or a chip, comes along that makes me sit up in my chair. The ESP8266 is one of those, and the things that make it interesting is tha ...

Breadboard adapter for ESP8266 module

ESP8266 is an inexpensive serial-to-wifi tranceiver chip that allows to connect any microcontroller with a serial port to a WiFi network. Because of its simplicity and low cost, it is getting popular among hobbyists for building Internet of Things (IoT) applications. While there are varieties of breakout boards available for ESP8266 from the Chinese markets, the most popular one is the ESP-01 version that p ...

Programming an Arduino via WiFi with the ESP8266

A (not so) brief introduction. I’ve been working on a new robot called RoDI for a summer course at my Alma mater. RoDI is a low cost wireless robot to teach robotics and programming I started developing last year (reminder to self: I still need to post about it), but it wasn’t until a month ago that I started to work on it more often. The first version used a HC-06 Bluetooth module to communicate with the c ...

ESP8266 Wifi Temperature Logger

They day I read at hackaday (http://hackaday.com/tag/esp8266/) that a new $5 wifi module was available, I order a few of them to test. Now, a few weeks later I want to share my experience. This is a very simple demo using the ESP8266 and Arduino to update a remote server (https://thingspeak.com/) using a digital temperature sensor. These are really exciting times for the Internet of Things (r)evolution. Pri ...

Arduino Basic Wifi Project using ESP8266 wifi module

Overview ESP8266 is a highly integrated chip designed for the needs of a new connected world. It offers a complete and self-contained Wi-Fi networking solution, allowing it to either host the application or to offload all Wi-Fi networking functions from another application processor. ESP8266 has powerful on-board processing and storage capabilities that allow it to be integrated with the sensors and other a ...
