Create a stand-alone Java App that displays info from a connected sensor

This article assumes you have already some experience in creating Java Apps. For instance if you have done the first 2 lectures of the course Application Development. You should also have prepared the DHT temperature/humidity sensor and have a working sketch for it (eg. by completing step 1 and 2 of this assignment, or via … Continue reading Create a stand-alone Java App that displays info from a connected sensor

Create a connected distance sensor with an ESP32 module

This short tutorial introduces the ESP32 module (a Lolin32 Lite) and connects an HC-SR04 Ultrasonic sensor. The entire prototype will be powered by a battery and sent its data to a webserver via Wifi. It is assumed you have installed the Arduino IDE and have some basic understanding of using electronics and wiring a breadboard. Although in … Continue reading Create a connected distance sensor with an ESP32 module

Using an Optical (IR) sensor with Arduino

This short tutorial introduces the Optical (infrared) distance sensor (Sharp GP2Y0A21YK0F). It is assumed you have installed the Arduino IDE and have some basic understanding of using electronics and wiring a breadboard. If you want to learn more or if anything is unclear, check out this extensive tutorial. Although in this example we use a display, you can … Continue reading Using an Optical (IR) sensor with Arduino
