Not so long ago, someone asked us if our devices could be driven directly from Microsoft Excel. Actually the answer is yes. But, unfortunately, this not as easy to do as we like our libraries to be. Anyway, seeing Excel plotting data coming directly from a Yoctopuce sensor might be worth the effort.
While surfing on the Internet, we found a nice little sensor: an optical rangefinder built by Sharp. Robotic specialists know it well, it's the most well known sensor to detect obstacles. In our selection of products, we currently don't offer a rangefinder sensor (telemeter). As an example, we are going to show you today how you could interface analog sensors of this type thanks to a Yoctopuce module.
Now that Windows 8 is finally available, we had to check that our modules work without trouble on this new OS. To perform a real test, we created a small C# application allowing us to monitor the temperature of several components of the computer (disks, graphic card, etc.) with the help of thermocouples. The good new is that it works!
This week, we are looking again at the Android library. We have published the first demo app on Google Play, and we have performed the same performance measures as run previously on traditional computers. We have also brought some improvements on the example we presented a few weeks ago.
This week, we present a new sensor, the Yocto-VOC. These three letters are the acronym of Volatile Organic Compounds, all of these molecules which mix with the oxygen in the air we breath, such as carbon dioxide for example. Then, what can we do with this nice little VOC sensor?
