New product: the Yocto-Altimeter

By mvuilleu, in New stuff and Android, may 11,2014.

The Yoctopuce module family welcomes a new member: the Yocto-Altimeter. As you'll have guessed, it's a barometric altimeter allowing you to determine the altitude (or the relative height) of its location. Some of you already used the barometer of the Yocto-Meteo as an altimeter, but this new module provides much better measures.

Using OpenWrt with Yoctopuce USB devices

By mvuilleu, in Tiny PC and Reviews, may 02,2014.

Do you know which is the smallest and cheapest machine, with Ethernet and Wifi network support, and to which we can connect Yoctopuce sensors and actuators? It's neither the Raspberry Pi, nor the BeagleBone. It's an even smaller machine, sold with an enclosure and a power cord, available in chain stores from $35: the TP-Link MR3020. When you take it out of the box, it's only a simple travel Access Point. But with a few clicks, you can install OpenWrt and new opportunities arise...

Yoctopuce is now available in Maven

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Programming, april 24,2014.

Maven is the most popular build engine for Java. We have therefore modified our Java library to make it compatible with Maven and it is now also available from the Maven Central Repository. Thanks to this, it's now possible to use the Yoctopuce library in a Maven project by adding only three fields in an xml file :-)

Controlled-environment cultivation

By martinm, in Internet of Things and Measures, april 11,2014.

As illustrated in a previous post, you need only a few Yoctopuce modules and a very simple logic to regulate an environmental factor such as humidity. Starting from there, why not generalize the principle and produce an environment fully optimized for a specific aim, such as growing plants? We decided to test this principle to grow mushrooms. Mushrooms, rather than tomatoes or pumpkins, because mushrooms grow fast and in the dark. It's therefore quite easy to make a time-lapse of their growing if you control lighting well...
