Build an App with App Inventor which can display values of a connected sensor

This tutorial describes how to Use App Inventor to build an App which can read the online values of a connected sensor. For this, it uses a WebViewer Component and a Clock to refresh values. This is part 2 of a series, the first part, “Create a connected sensor” can be found here. This second … Continue reading Build an App with App Inventor which can display values of a connected sensor

Tutorial: Create a connected sensor

This tutorial demonstrates how to build a simple sensor and publish its values online (on a web server) using an ESP32 module. We will build an Arduino sketch which will read the sensor values, connect to WiFi, connect to a website and publish the values on the website. The published values can then be used … Continue reading Tutorial: Create a connected sensor

Getting started with the ESP32 Wifi module

The ESP32 Wifi module can replace an Arduino, as it has similar properties. It’s main advantage is that it is faster, has more memory and has WiFi and Bluetooth on board. Just like the Arduino Nano it can be mounted on a breadboard. This allows building very compact prototype circuits: Make module ready for use … Continue reading Getting started with the ESP32 Wifi module

Build an RFID reader with Arduino and the RC522 RFID module

The RC522 RFID module is a cheap module which comes with a card and a dongle.You can buy it at our local electronics shop the STORES for a few euro’s (search for ‘rfid’ in the price list). Or buy it here. Only thing you have to do before you can use it is solder the … Continue reading Build an RFID reader with Arduino and the RC522 RFID module
