Previous posts: EasyConfigure - Modular/Configurable System Intro EasyConfigure - Hardware Components EasyConfigure - BASH scripting EasyConfigure - MQTT test setup   ESP8266 I recently received a couple of ESP8266 WiFi modules that I considered using for remote sensor data transmission via MQTT protocol. Initial plan was to access this module from Arduino Micro (interfaced via UART) but as I was getting more familiar with these modules I learned that they can be programmed with custom ...
Previous posts: EasyConfigure - Modular/Configurable System Intro EasyConfigure - Hardware Components EasyConfigure - BASH scripting   1. Introduction I still didn't receive Analog Devices kits but hopefully I will very soon. This is due to alternative route complications. My time was used for software development. I managed to make an application to test performance of MQTT based solution.   2. MQTT broker I'm using a Raspberry Pi model B as hardware platform for my MQTT broker. R ...
Previous posts: EasyConfigure - Modular/Configurable System Intro EasyConfigure - Hardware Components   1. Introduction Time is getting shorter for this challenge so it seems like a good idea to use tools that will help in making the progress faster. Since I'm still waiting for the contestant's kit, the only way I can work right now is by working on the software side and on hardware components that I already have. I decided to make parts of this project with simple BASH scripts. BASH scr ...
Previous posts: Sudden Impact Design Challenge - Modular/Configurable System Intro     Hardware Components  My plan is to make a modular and easy to configure prototype. It will also have to be accurate and should provide realtime sensor data. In my initial post I explained my plan only in rough words. I will now try to be more elaborated about the hardware components.   1) Remote unitsa) MCU and wireless connection Remote units will be based on a small development module. ...
First of all, I owe a big "thank you" to Element14 and all the sponsors for selecting me as one of the participants in this challenge! Also, I have to say thanks to members who are always eager to help each other. This community is amazing! Everything I create during this challenge will be open-sourced, of course. I think this is the best way I can return for everything I learned here.   Project description   Regarding the proposed system, I plan to make it modular and easy to conf ...
