Remote Monitoring & Control Enter Your Electronics & Design Project for a chance to win up to a $200 Shopping Cart of Product! Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   Finally I am able to interface all the sensors and successfully transmit all the data to the IBM IoT platform. There is definitely some room for improvement especially in selection of sensors etc. Currently, Instead of completely reinstalling the firmware I have used two s ...
Remote Monitoring & Control Enter Your Electronics & Design Project for a chance to win up to a $200 Shopping Cart of Product! Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   Introduction  This blog is to close out this project for the purposes of the remote monitoring competition.   In blog 1, I presented an old project, which was based on fuzzy logic and used analog moisture sensors which corroded over time. The data collected was ...
I tried the GridEye sensor outside last night where the temperature dropped to about 10 C, which is actually better for detecting the cats as they would stand out more from the background ambient temperature. I did have to make a few tweaks to the settings and the training data set for the Artificial Neural Network as all my previous testing had been done inside where the temperature is about 20 C.   Regretfully, no cats were detected last night after several hours of sensing. I think it m ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   During the life time of any IoT device and especially which is located at remote place, sometime you need to simply restart the device. In conventional MQTT broker there is no such option of remote resetting the device or managed device option. So you have to create everyt ...
  Another Project14 Challenge complete - sort of.....  As always, some goals were met and some were not.  I thought that I would summarize where I got to.   Blog Post Index LoRa Experimental Environmental Sensors (LoRaXes) - Introduction LoRa Experimental Environmental Sensors (LoRaXes) - Need to use a bigger case LoRa Experimental Environmental Sensors (LoRaXes) - GPS is Working LoRa Experimental Environmental Sensors (LoRaXes) - Case Layout LoRa Experimental Environm ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   When you want to store information in any embedded project then you can either use external storage devices or internal storage of embedded controller. The internal storage space (SRAM or EEPROM) is usually very small with limited number of erase/write cycles. Therefore ex ...
There's not much time left before the end of the Remote Monitoring and Control Project14 competition so I'm rushing to get finished, or at least, nearer to finishing. I have combined the two Arduino programmes I have been working with; one from the GridEye sensor and one for an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) into a single working programme. It is a bit of a bodge in places as I didn't want to spend too much time on good solutions if it wasn't going to work. The main problem I have had is to con ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   DHT temperature and humidity sensors are pretty useful for DIY environment monitoring applications. You can easily interface it with Arduino devices but when it come to other devices like PSoC from cypress semiconductors you wont find any library or ready made solution. I ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   Intro: Over the last few years I had different types of succulent plants but due extreme outdoor environment I have lost many of these. After a lot of experimentation now I know exactly how to take care of these plants in alien conditions. The most crucial factor in healthy ...
As I am having trouble processing and interpreting the data obtained from the GridEye sensor when trying to detect a cat I decided I needed some artificial Intelligence to help me as all my intelligence is worn out. There is a programme for Arduino that implements an Artificial Neural Network, hopefully still available as shown below.   /****************************************************************** * ArduinoANN - An artificial neural network for the Arduino * All basic settings can ...
