Last year, Microsoft announced the Azure IoT Suite. Behind this somewhat pompous name hides two examples of use of their Azure cloud with connected objects. We are going to see how to use Yoctopuce modules in one of these two examples.
This week, we present a small and quite simple DIY project based on the fact that white ping-pong balls make excellent light diffusers. We built a kind of multicolor chandelier, that you can drive through the Internet and which is PoE powered.
Even in the Internet of Things era, there are automation and measuring applications that require to work in a completely autonomous way, without any network connection of any kind. Someone asked us recently how to implement such an autonomous data logger using our sensors. The system should not require any network connection but use a USB key to retrieve the data. We are going to cover this example in details and at the same time take this opportunity to test a relatively new mini-computer that we recently discovered...
We often receive requests for an Android version of the VirtualHub. It doesn't exist, but we provide an Android library enabling developers to use our modules directly from their app. However, we didn't have a solution for users who don't want to develop their own applications. We adjust our aim by announcing our new Android application: Yocto-Toolbox.
