Posted by frelfrel Oct 31, 2019
This sample demonstrates how to get data from GPS and put it to IoT Central and display on Map. This sample is modyfication of AzureIoT sample. Hardware used Azure Sphere AVNET + GPS NEO-6M.     Source Code: https://github.com/MariuszFerdyn/azure-sphere-samples/tree/master/Samples/AzureIoT%2BGPS   Circuit Diagram:     My blog: https://rzetelnekursy.pl/ ...
When looking for a driver for my noname 128x64 OLED display I remembered that I used quite excellent u8g2 library once and it was really painless and seamless experience. What is u8g2? Let me quote the description from GitHub: U8g2 is a monochrome graphics library for embedded devices. U8g2 supports monochrome OLEDs and LCDs, which include the following controllers: SSD1305, SSD1306, SSD1309, SSD1322, SSD1325, SSD1327, SSD1329, SSD1606, SSD1607, SH1106, SH1107, SH1108, SH1122, T6963, RA8835, LC7 ...
Hi, Guys this is my small blog on how to solve two problems which I faced! 1. SDK Installation (TAP-Windows wont install! Therefore 'Azure Sphere Device Communication Service' wont start!) 2. Suddenly your Azure Sphere Died (Wont power with any charger or wires! U5 Regulator replacement!)   First - SDK Installation Errors! Before following the instructions here check - - No other TAP-Windows drivers present (No other VPN services and software's running!) - Visual Studio 2019 / 2017 wi ...

I finished the challenge and being new to this blog and new to the Azure Sphere, it was a real challenge to get something interesting up and running. Also, The changes By Microsoft to the SDK and OS, added more challenges to a moving target. But Things were only made much better. It gave me a sense that I was on the cutting edge by using the Beta version.   My background and career for the past 35 years has been as a Software Engineer. Now, I'm retired and concentrating on Learning more ab ...

Introduction Parts Circuit Assembly Code The lock Usage Config Alarms Azure Telemetry Settings Properties Commands Rules Summary   Introduction Every where I go looking for some Azure Sphere resources I see that it's always secure in every possible aspect. Looks like the creators of the chip are focused on this task the most. And I'm not really surprised. Currently majority of IoT connected devices are open source or not ESP ba ...
As a part of my project I needed a PWM source and since hardware PWM was not accessible before OS 19.09, the only other option was to do it old school: by bit-banging GPIO pins. Turns out it wasn't that difficult and since this technique might sometimes be useful even with HW PWM present, I'd like to share my code for others to use.   PWM (or Pulse Width Modulation) is basically a clock signal with a programmable duty cycle. PWM generator could then be decribed by using two values: clock f ...
1. Introduction In this project, we make use of Avnet Azure Sphere Starter Kit, Arduino Uno and Azure IoT Cloud Services to build an Azure Sphere Remote Sensing Car. The hardware includes Avnet Azure Sphere Starter Kit, Arduino Uno and a car model, while the software includes applications running on Avnet Azure Sphere Starter Kit, Arduino Uno and desktop PC. Azure IoT Cloud Services include Azure IoTHub, Azure Stream Analytics and PowerBI. The video of the project is shown as follows. This pro ...

Overview  Lately there is a haze hazard happening in Malaysia. I thought of doing the air quality project using the Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit.  While researching on doing the project, I found out that I do not have the air quality sensor to use with the Azure Sphere.  Hence I change it to this project which I use the onboard temperature sensor and a relay click board.     Features The idea is simple.  The context is my home where I want to keep it comfortable ...

During my experiments with Azure Sphere I wrote, ported or created wrappers for a few various I2C sensor drivers. If you plan to use some of those sensors in your project, feel free to use libraries included below. Drivers are organized into Visual Studio libraries which can be simply added into your project without polluting your main project directory with more files. Every driver also includes an example of its use in a real Azure Sphere application. All drivers were updated to OS 19.09 Targ ...
My original blog post is here, detailing my design goals for my IoT idea to implement on my Azure Sphere Starter Kit (home monitoring device).   Since my first post a few weeks ago, I have managed to accomplish the following:   1. Received, unboxed and successfully set up my Starter kit to be able to run the daily server sync script for the Phase 1 "Get Connected" of the Azure Sphere Sensing the World Challenge. 2. Began the daily server sync on 9/11 3. Subsequently had an issue af ...
I've managed to get the OLED-C Click board working with the Avnet Azure Sphere Starter Kit. It will work with the OLED-C in mikroBUS #1 or with a few changes in a header file it will work in mikroBUS #2. I would include a photo, but it seems that the display and my smartphone camera do not get along! https://github.com/FredMurphy/AzureSphereOLEDC   There were a few bumps along the way - not least the fact that there are 2 versions of the board that use completely different drivers. This ...

This project is a system to control and monitor a gated area in a vehicle lot or event space.  The project is designed around the Avnet Azure Sphere MT3620 starter kit. The system controls two gates or doorways.  The gates are simulated using two stepper motors.  The stepper motors are actuated using click stepper2 modules:   https://www.mikroe.com/stepper-2-click The system waits for a request to open the incoming gate.  The controller keeps a count of how many g ...
As part of my Sensing the World entry, I purchased an Environment Click https://www.mikroe.com/environment-click The heart of the Click board is a Bosch BME680 environmental sensor, which can measure temperature, relative humidity, pressure and VOC content.   I wanted to share my experience using this Click Board with the Azure Sphere Starter Kit in the hope that others find it useful. Alternatively, perhaps it is some form of therapy....(read on for more information)   There is one ...
