Arduino Yun SBC adds Wifi and Linux to Leonardo features

[Updated Sep 30] — Arduino announced the first open source Arduino hacker board with built-in WiFi, and also the first to run Linux. The $69 Arduino Yun integrates the functions of an Arduino Leonardo, featuring an Atmel ATmega32U4 microcontroller and 14 GPIO pins, with an Atheros AR9331 WiFi SOC running OpenWRT embedded Linux on a 400MHz MIPS processor. Arduino, the Italian-based project that designs the o ...

Internet Datalogging With Arduino and XBee WiFi

Introduction Are you looking to get your data gathering project hooked into the “Internet-of-Things”? Then check out data.sparkfun.com! It makes posting data to the web as easy as constructing a URL and POSTing it to a server. I wanted to create a quick project to test out SparkFun’s data logging service. Combining an Arduino, XBee WiFi module, and a variety of gas, temperature, and light sensors I built an ...

How to build an open WiFi finder using ESP8266 and two coin batteries

In the past few months ESP8266 has created a real revolution in the IoT space. I’m using it in a project that will hit Indiegogo in a month or so and you, of course will support me ☺ During the development process I’ve learned a lot and I want to share a part of it. Let’s build cheap open WiFi finder together! Software NodeMcu firmware https://github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware ESP8266 flasher http://www.x ...

How to tweet from an Arduino using the wifi sheild

Hey, I am a big fan of Instructables. I have consistently used it for the past 3 years and now its time for me to write one myself.Here we go. This instructable is for those who want to make some inanimate object tweet automatically. Like say for example you are building a robot and you want the robot to tweet to you or to the world. This obviously means your robot needs to have access to the internet and s ...

Getting an ESP8266 wifi module to work with Arduino

Last night was another BuildBrighton nerd-meet-up and, luckily, we had a couple of these new fangled ESP8266 wifi modules to try out. In case you've been living in a cave with a tin can tied to the end of piece of string as an internet connection, you'll probably know that these are the ultra-cheap wifi modules currently flooding out of Chinese factories and onto "hacker benches" all over the world. The rea ...

Probably the Cheapest WIFI Computer in the World (ESP8266+LUA)

This article describes the ESP-01, fitted with LUA firmware that is able to converse with a serial terminal in a high level language, store programs and data, turn things on and off in a package that costs almost nothing. The possibilities for ridiculously cheap remote temperature sensors and more are finally here. The software is new, the hardware is relatively new – and we need people working on software ...

Arduino Wifi With Hi Flying HF-LPT100 / USR WIFI232-T

The Arduino's greatest weakness is also it's greatest triumph. That is, it is only a low power simple processor, which makes internet connectivity for such a simple device difficult. Often the network interface has a few orders of magnitude greater performance than the arduino atmel avr processor itself. Arduino Yun is the answer to wifi connectivity for arduino. Ushering in a new era known as the internet ...

Wifi Switch board or Smart Plug with Esp8266, Attiny 85 & PIR Sensor with android app

The Wifi Arduino 85 is a small board with ESP8266 -01 module, Attiny85 micro controller and a relay. It Also has and additional header for connecting an external relay or to connect sensors like PIR, IR etc depending on your application. If you are a tinkerer you will also be able to connect a HC-05/06 Bluetooth module and convert this board to a Bluetooth Arduino 85 board. I am going to make a Swith board ...
