IoE Everywhere

This year's Cisco Live event in Milan, Italy was packed with Internet of Everything from various vendors. These are just some quick photos - apologies for the quality, they were from a mobile phone in the brief time I had:   Most important first: Lego city!   You can see the little round light sensors (light dependant resistors) installed in the road in the photo below. The street lamps are white LEDs: Lego parking spots and Lego parking violations can be monitored: A beautif ...
Introduction Prototype Code Demo Next Steps   Introduction  Since I got my Spark Core, I've been fiddling without really knowing what I wanted to do with it. Lately, I've also been playing with my Rapiro again, and that's when I got the idea to build a physical controller for the robot, with at its heart a Spark Core.   The controller would be used to send different MQTT messages depending on which button was pressed. Rapiro (or any other IoT device, really ...
Dear colleagues,   I'm more than happy to announce the release of panStamp NRG, our new Wireless ISM module based on the CC430F5137 MCU and programmable from the Arduino 1.5 IDE.     panStamp NRG is pin, radio and software compatible with our classic AVR modules but entirely relies on a Texas Instruments CC430F5137 MCU instead of our old Atmega + CC1101 approach. As result, we are getting a more robust module providing more features, more speed and consuming less power: Dim ...
Earlier this year I released the design for my laser tripwire doorbell. A handy device that does a great job of letting me know when someone arrives at the house. It’s been wonderful because it trips even if the doorbell is not pressed (e.g. for the mail) and it swaps an annoying tone for a pleasantly silent blue LED. While accumulated snow will render it useless, it has been working really well! As a businessman I finalize designs and release them so they can be trusted by others and I c ...
In my previous blog posts I mainly focused on the IoT aspects of the project. In Old meets new, the 1-Wire Weather Station on the SPARK Core. (part 2) I showed a scan of the 1-Wire bus, which showed the devices in the 1-Wire Weather Station. In the last one Old meets new, the 1-Wire Weather Station on the SPARK Core. (part 4) I showed how two extra 1-Wire temperature sensors ar read and published in the cloud. In Old meets new, the 1-Wire Weather Station on the SPARK Core. (part 1) I very briefl ...
Introduction Project Morpheus is a battery simulator - primarily Lithium Polymer (LiPo) cells but other batteries are possible too. It will be possible to dial up a 3V coin cell profile for example or AA batteries as another example. Once the profile has been selected the battery simulator will behave like that battery, so for example in 3V coin cell mode it won’t drive a motor very well, but in 3V dual AA battery mode it can. It achieves this by dynamically modifying the output terminal v ...
