The application that we discuss this week answers an actual problem that we encountered this Summer: how to replace an old float level regulator for a swimming pool, impossible to repair, with an alternative solution which fits in the same small sealed cavity. The main aim is to avoid expensive replacement work. If at the same time we can increase our control on the pool water consumption, it's always a bonus...
The post of this week is dedicated to Android. We implemented Android projects a number of times already, but this week we are going to concentrate on the software part. We are going to write a short application displaying the value of a temperature sensor connected by USB.
You are probably aware of the problem: how to ensure a minimum of security when you back out of a private property in a car, without visibility. Most of the time, people simply back out really slowly and hope that no one bumps into them. But you are still at the mercy of a distracted driver. Hence the idea of a light barrier triggering a light signal to warn oncoming traffic of the danger.
A few years ago, we explained how to create an anemometer, but there is another solution to measure wind speed: the Pitot tube. This week, we are going to see how to measure wind speed with a Pitot tube for scaled modelling and a Yocto-0-10V-Rx.
It took us some time to find a design that suited us, but this week we can finally announce the latest member of our family of USB analog interfaces: Here is the Yocto-0-10V-Tx.
