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?
After several days of testing, we published this week a new version of the programming libraries (API) for all the languages, as well as a new version of the VirtualHub software, allowing you to reach our USB modules through the network. New or improved features are:
- improved ARM support (MK802, MK805, and Raspberry Pi)
- access control on network connections
- HTTP callback in the VirtualHub
- improved performances with all the languages
Until now, when you wanted to test a Yoctopuce module, change a parameter, or read a sensor value, you had either to run a VirtualHub, or to write a short program yourself. From now on, there is a faster, simpler, and more efficient solution: the command line API...
When we geek try to cook a nice chunk of meat, the tricky part is the cooking itself. Instead of sitting idle while the meat cooks, we go read something on the iPad, code some stuff or even to talk with the guests rather than watching a meat in the oven. And at the end, the meat is often overcooked. But this is gonna change. Our new recipe, using a Yocto-Thermocouple and Raspberry Pi, solves the issue. The Raspberry Pi will monitor the meat temperature for us, and send an e-mail as soon as the ideal temperature is reached. And long life to the smartphones !
