Yoctopuce, USB sensors and actuators

Meet Yoctopuce

Yoctopuce designs, manufactures and sells USB devices to let your computer sit in the real world, not in the cloud. Our USB modules are tiny, easy to install and easy to drive programmatically. Among them you will find:

YoctoHub-Wireless-g

YoctoHub-Wireless-gHub enabling the connection of 3 Yoctopuce modules directly on a wireless network (802.11g), with a built-in timer.

Driving a Roomba with a Yoctopuce module

We recently bought a Roomba automatic vacuum cleaner and we started to look at how to hack it as soon as it was out of the box. The Roomba is equipped with a serial port which enables you to control the robot. This serial port uses a Mini-Din socket and works in TTL levels (incompatible with an RS232 port). Luckily, we just announced the Yocto-Serial: a serial interface which can work with TTL levels.

And here is the Yocto-RS485!

In an industrial environment, the 4-20mA standard is a practical and robust mean to move a captor several hundreds of meters away. But when you multiply the number of sensors or the physical parameters to be measured, or when the resolution of analog transmissions is not good enough, you must find another transmission system. That's when the RS-485 standard comes in: it is the industrial cousin of the RS-232. And from today, thanks to the Yocto-RS485, you can interface RS-485 devices with the same ease of use an any Yoctopuce module.
