CoPiino, The Melding of Arduino and Raspberry Pi

CoPiino, The Melding of Arduino and Raspberry Pi | Home Automation | Scoop.it

The CoPiino is a Arduino compatible Atmel 1284 based "shield" for the Raspberry Pi that allows remote editing and uploading of Arduino sketches using a web browser. Access the CoPiino app running on the Raspberry Pi with a web browser to edit and upload new sketches. Transfer sensor data from the CoPiino to the Raspberry Pi for display by the Apache Web Server, and stored by the MySQL server running on the Pi.

Wireless Relay Control with Arduino & the CC3000 WiFi chip

Wireless Relay Control with Arduino & the CC3000 WiFi chip | Home Automation | Scoop.it

Controlling relays is a central piece in any home automation system. With them, you can easily switch on and off any electrical device in your home, like lights. This project is the second part of a series showing you how to use Arduino & the CC3000 WiFi chip for home automation purposes. The first part was dedicated to how to read data wirelessly from a temperature & humidity sensor.

Arduino The Documentary now online

Arduino The Documentary is finally out. We have been waiting for long, but now you can see it at Vimeo (EN, ES) and download it from Archive.org (EN, ES). The file is licensed under CC-SA 3.0 and can be redistributed. The makers are working in making a batch of DVDs that will include the full interviews as well as footage of the different locations where the documentary was made (ITP, Parsons, Adafruit, Rockwellgroup, and Makerbot New York; Medialab Prado and IES Miguel Hernandez, Madrid; Laboral Centro de Arte, Gijon).

Nice drawings of the Arduino UNO and Mega 2560

If you’re looking to make your own shield for the Arduino platform, you’ll definitely need to know where all the pins and holes are located on the Arduino. After doing a quick search, I was unable to find an accurate technical drawing of the new Arduino UNO and Arduino Mega 2560.

Arduino To Ableton Live Via Pure Data

Arduino To Ableton Live Via Pure Data | Home Automation | Scoop.it
It’s still unfinished here. It’s basically opening the communication between the arduino, scaling everything from 0-127 to be compatible with MIDI, then being routed through various CC’s to mac’s IAC driver, which passes the MIDI CC’s into Ableton Live.

So there you have it. A few things are missing, the LED’s still need to be added and tweaked, a problem with there not being enough power to illuminate the very demanding buttons, although I plan to resolve this with an external DC adapter though.

Arduino Blog » Blog Archive » Fritzing is out with a new release including Arduino Yún microcontroller! | Home Automation | Scoop.it

Fritzing is an open-source hardware initiative that makes electronics accessible as a creative material for anyone. You can easily learn how to build a circuit for you project and also design your own PCB.

WiFi Enabled Whole House Power Meter

WiFi Enabled Whole House Power Meter | Home Automation | Scoop.it
First things first – this project is a blatant and obvious rip-off of John Jarvis’ power monitoring project! A few minor details have changed but I have to give him credit for a great project idea. I was intrigued by John’s power meter and it gave me an excuse to buy and try an Arduino – a handy and fun little embedded project platform! John’s power meter uses the ethernet shield and some CGI scripts, etc., to talk with his server – I went with AsyncLabs WiShield to put my power meter onto the network – my backend to get the data to the server is also a bit different (but of course).

The basic idea of the project is that an Arduino Duemilanove is continuously reading the analog pins that a couple TED Current Tranducers are connected to (one per phase). The Arduino does a little smoothing/averaging of the data and waits for an IP connection to send that data out on. Another machine has a Win32 service running on it and every minute it queries the power meter for its current data; the data that is received is stuffed into a MySQL data base. When a web request comes in to view the data a few pre-canned charts are generated real time and returned to the web user’s browser.

Tutorial: Arduino And The AREF Pin

Tutorial: Arduino And The AREF Pin | Home Automation | Scoop.it
We measure resolution in the terms of the number of bits of resolution. For example, a 1-bit resolution would only allow two (two to the power of one) values – zero and one. A 2-bit resolution would allow four (two to the power of two) values – zero, one, two and three. If we tried to measure a five volt range with a two-bit resolution, and the measured voltage was four volts, our ADC would return a value of 3 – as four volts falls between 3.75 and 5V.
