Communication Mediums: Netduino Ethernet Part 2

Results were not the same, Netduino Ethernet was way faster than Arduino WiFi, no delay’s instant execution, Netduino Plus is bundle of joy for those who wish to build home automation cheap solution with Ethernet and SD-card slot, wins the race again Arduino & Arduino WiFi, making Netduino a web server and parsing data was a breeze and no bugs, I find it to be wonderfully robust, have a look at the video below; Netduino & Ethernet Sheild : Controlling my room lights from Kazi Murtaza.

Arduino WiFi Shield : JSON Parsing

char ssid[] = "Kazi-House"; // your network SSID (name) char pass[] = "123456789"; // your network password int keyIndex = ; // your network key Index number (needed only for WEP) int status = WL_IDLE_STATUS; WiFiServer server(80); void setup() { //Initialize serial and wait for port to open: Serial.begin(9600); // check for the presence of the shield: if (WiFi.status() == WL_NO_SHIELD) { Serial.println("WiFi shield not present"); // don't continue: while(true); } // attempt to connect to Wifi network: while ( status !

Communication Mediums: Arduino WiFi, RN-42 Bluetooth, Netduino Ethernet

Hello, I have gotten my hands on couple of communication devices which could be used for android and Arduino/ Netduino communication, first RN-42 SMD bought from – link, Arduino WiFi Shield also bought from – link and third is Netduino it self which comes with Ethernet shield built-in, and Netduino is given to me by my teacher for educational purposes only, sad cant keep it. Any ways lets start of with, RN-42 SMD is fairly cheap comparatively to others available for sale on spark fun and is very easy to use you just need 4 connections VCC(3. Read On →


Netduino 101 : potentiometer example

potentiometer example takes analog input and light up leds accounting to the input 1023 divide by 5; namespace potentiometer_netduino { public class Program { public static void Main() { var voltagePort = new AnalogInput(Pins.GPIO_PIN_A1); var lowPort = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_A0, false); var highPort = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_A2, true); OutputPort led1 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D1, false); OutputPort led2 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D2, false); OutputPort led3 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D3, false); OutputPort led4 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D4, false); OutputPort led5 = new OutputPort(Pins.

Arduino vs Netduino : the more things change, more they remain same.

Arduino and Netduino are kinda of like small computers that have allowed us to do marvelous things, like controlling our environment and more they are not really that expensive Arduino mega 2560 is 7k and Netduino plus is 5k, if you have not heard of this before, this article is not really for you. I recently got new Netduino Plus thanks to my sir for lending it to me, and I have been playing with it. Read On →

This is basic things i have at my dissposal, list you will need to follow my experiments, if you have any suggestion do comment ITEM ARDUINO MEGA 2560 Rev3 Bluetooth Serial Module TRANSISTORS (C945) RESISITANCE (330 ohm ) RESISITANCE ( 10k ) BREAD BOARD JUMPER CABLES or WIRES Relay 6V PRINTER CABLE ANDROID PHONE ARDUINO WIFI SHIELD 7805 12V TO 5V 5V DC ADAPTER 100 OHM RESISTANCE BLUETOOTH RN42 SMD NETDUINO 9V BATTERY 9V BATTERY STRAP VERO BOARD for now I guess that’s it.

My Jarvis

Jarvis, the one from iron man movie, Yes, Digital Life Assistance crazy idea for hobby project, right ? well we have seen many different kind’s of implementation’s in hope’s of achieving what that rich bastard has, but if we were to have it, we must first have platform to build upon, as far as I can see we need a system which is capable of achieving tasks in real world and virtual world, so to start off my first task is controlling the lights with Arduino, don’t worry I will be taking it slow.

Arduino: toggling leds through SERIAL monitor

ok here is a sample code which receives data from serial and toggles devices to test it you can plug in led’s to test it, //for keeping the current status of leds int status1 = ; int status2 = ; int status3 = ; int status4 = ; //leds connected to Arduino int pin1 = 2; int pin2 = 4; int pin3 = 6; int pin4 = 8; void setup() { //open serial ports Serial.
