Time Stamp from Web Server

INTRODUCTION In this project, we will learn the basics of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and how to communicate to a webserver over TCP. We will request and receive packets from the Google web server using the above communication protocol. The 4Duino display is used to print the status of the connection and the received information for debugging purposes. Transfer of Data over Internet The 2 most commo ...

The Internet of Bees: Adding Sensors to Monitor Hive Health

The Digital Beehive uses Wi-Fi to broadcast a beehive’s weight, humidity, temperature, and battery voltage every minute to SparkFun’s data channel service called Phant. The raw data can be seen here but you can view some prettier graphs of the data here on analog.io (sign-in required). On a visit to Portland, Oregon, last summer my friend mentioned he had always wanted to put a load cell under a beehive to ...

Pin Control Over the Internet – Arduino + Ethernet

In a previous article we showed you how to control digital pins over over serial, and showed how such a simple thing can be so powerful. One major downfall with that is you need to be nearby to send commands… So today we are going to look at doing the same thing, but this time we will be doing it over the internet using the Arduino Ethernet Shield. As per our usual style, I am going to make this as simple a ...

Milk in Fridge – Internet of Things

I think that one day, all food cupboards & fridges/freezers will be smart. All products will have an RFID or video recognisable label which will update a list of product usage. Your local supermarket will gather this information & replenish your products as required - who knows ?? (After about 3 mins, skip forward to about 30 secs from end) Anyhow, I wanted to make my own Internet of Things and I wa ...

Internet of My Own Things

The Internet of Things has a different meaning for different people. For some, it means monitoring room temperatures from a mobile phone, whereas for other, it is controlling garden lighting from a laptop computer. For sports-minded people, it might mean logging their heart rate in real-time to a cloud service. Is there a common denominator between this wide range of different applications? Our answer is Ai ...
