Include the C++ library into your project

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Programming, july 15,2013.

Yoctopuce libraries include multiples examples showing how to use our devices. In the C++ libary we also include binaries for all supported OS, Makefiles and preconfigured project for all supported IDE. So you can modify an recompile our examples very easily. But we never explained how to create such projects from scratch. For some environments this is very easy and intuitive, but for some other you need to configure a few more things. This week we will show you how to integrate our C++ library from source into an IDE project created from scratch.

How to build a rain sensor

Most recent cars include a cool gadget: automatic windshield wipers, which start to wipe as soon as it rains. As we are curious by nature, we wondered how car rain sensors work and whether it was possible to build one ourselves, without needing to put a windshield in the middle of the garden.

Interfacing a building with a computer

By mvuilleu, in Electronics, june 28,2013.

Electric circuits used in buildings for signalling and control have some specificities. When you know them, it is easy to drive them with Yoctopuce modules connected to a standard computer. This enables you to replace obsolete programmable logic controllers with systems much easier to program, while offering a much more modular solution than dedicated PCI interface cards.

Using Yoctopuce built-in data logger

By mvuilleu, in Programming, june 25,2013.

Most of our USB sensors include an embedded data logger. It is trivial to activate this data logger. However, after using it for a while, we noticed that the programming interface used to retrieve the data is not very intuitive. We therefore decided to bring some improvements to it to facilitate its use. Here is an outline of what will probably change, to provide you with the opportunity to give us your feedback before the choices are definite.

What happens inside the fridge?

By martinm, in Measures, june 14,2013.

What exactly happens when we open and then close the fridge door? Obviously, the light switches on and off, but how do temperature and power consumption vary? To be frank, this question is not quite innocent. I started a while back to have doubts about how well, or bad, my fridge was working. I have therefore decided to get to the bottom of it. And I made some rather interesting discoveries.
