Learn how to build your own IoT temperature logger with data uploaded to the cloud. This project uses itbrainpower.net dual SIM full-size GSM shield [a-gsmII] for data transmission (or itbrainpower.net dual SIM full-size GSM GNSS shield [b-gsmgnss]) and Dallas/Maxim 18B20 1wire temperature sensor. Required time: 30-45 minutes – hardware side 30-60 […]
For robots, being able to understand or navigate their environment is often critical to functioning properly. While there are plenty of sensors that allow robots to glimpse their surroundings, one category of sensors that is rapidly gaining popularity is light and laser-based (LiDAR) distance measurement/object detection. In this article, we […]
Build yourself your own Arduino temperature SMS alarm – thermal monitoring system having MAXIMUM and MINIMUM temperature thresholds, keep alive messages and (oldies but goldies as) SMS paging and remote ARM/DISARM system. You can supervise one or more 1WIRE temperature sensor(s) and page via SMS the “heating and chilling events” and keep alive messages, including last temperature.
This project will show you how fast you can build your own alarm system capable of supervising one or more magnetic contacts and inform you via SMS of the “burglar event”. You even have the possibility to control (ENABLE/DISABLE) the alarm system remotely, via SMS commands. For SMS communication purposes one of two pin […]
