IoT: In the Cloud

29 posts
We'll connect an Arduino MKR to AWS IoT with an Ethernet cable and the MKR ETH shield. I've done this before on a MKR1010 with WiFi. This post uses the same example, with a wired Ethernet solution. With this example, you can safely connect to AWS and interact with their MQTT service.   What do you need?  An Arduino MKR. Any will do, MKR1000, 1010, ..... An Arduino MKR ETH shield mounted on it An internet connected Ethernet cable plugged into the shield.   For the setup o ...
After breaking something, how many times have you wished a band aid or duct tape could fix the issue? When I was in college, my classmates and I had an inside joke saying, “If it can’t be fixed with duct tape then you’re not using enough duct tape.” I still live by this, for the most part, because duct tape is an all-in-one solution. It’s cheap, flexible, easy to use, and can be cut into different shapes. What if I told you that KEMET has a product that is almost li ...
In an IoT sensor application the sensor usually sleeps most of the time and wakes in regular periods for a very short time to send its measurements to the cloud. This should reduce the average current consumption to 10 - 100 uA and enable a long battery lifetime.   Concept of Arduino IoT cloud and misuse Based on my previous experience of the Arduino IoT cloud I think this cloud aims at another target. It wants to connect your Arduino to the cloud and keep the connection online all the time ...
Arduino IoT cloud  Connecting a Arduino to the Arduino IoT Cloud is very simple and straight forward. As long as you have the right Arduino board. At the moment there are only Arduino MKR 1000, Arduino MKR WIFI 1010 and Arduino MKR GSM 1400 supported. I have an Arduino MKR WIFI 1010 so I am fine. To connect it with the Arduino IoT Cloud you just have to follow the following tutorial:   https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/133030/iot-cloud-getting-started-c93255?f=1   This tutor ...
It seems like I am a little bit late for the IoT: In the Cloud challenge. Nevertheless since I received a Arduino MKR WIFI 1010 board from element14 and that my project is now almost I finished I will present it anyway.   Introduction and Idea For us humans there exists the real ambient temperature and the apparent temperature (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apparent_temperature ). For low temperatures the the apparent temperature depends mostly on the real temperature and the wind speed and ...

This will be my final blog in the IoT: In the Cloud project.  I have finished programming the controller logic and have modified the enclosure to mount the relay module and drilled out the wiring access hole.   Controller Logic For this first pass I basically replicated the control logic of the mechanical timer that I am replacing and with the Cayenne dashboard I can update it remotely.  The sprinkler schedule can be set for a two week period.  The day buttons are selected ...
A compact stand-alone system which allows transport providers and law enforcers to manage transport systems efficiently. This project focus to build a complete system for Traffic Evaluation, Management and Monitoring that is capable of relaying the real-time vehicle data (user id, vehicle registration number, vehicle speed, vehicle location etc) into a dedicated cloud for advanced analysis. This allows transport providers and law enforcers to manage transport systems efficiently by accessing ...
About a couple of months back a work buddy of mine, moved back to Canada and  gave me 4 Sonoff switches, he was using the Sonoff to control his lamps using the default sonoff mobile app. I dint want to use the mobile app, to send data to the cloud, and after a couple of search’s on the internet found they use an ESP8266, which means if you are able to locate the pads you can re-program it, to load your own firmware . On Github there are repositories which you can use to flash the Sono ...

Story behind the project: I believe that a project without a story is stale and tasteless and doesnot have a vivid connection with the author/maker.Last year I was diagonsed with measles and jaundice at the same time.I was taken to a hospital nearby when my condition was not good.Being a college student 2000 km away from home is difficult,especially in these cases. When I reached the hospital all my tests were taken and I just needed to be prescribed the correct medicine. But, the skin speciali ...
