The hardware user guides for the Freakduino and Freakduino 1284P are now online. Previously these …
The Wireless Communications with Arduino tutorial series continues with this third part focusing on collecting real time data using sensors.
Most people that purchase devices from FreakLabs are mainly focused on collecting data wirelessly. There’s a typical design pattern where you have one or more devices with sensors attached sending data to a single receiving node that aggregates the data. From there, it can be processed directly or sent on to the internet to be stored on some database in the cloud. This tutorial focuses on the first part in the data chain: wiring up a sensor to a freakduino transmitter and sending that data to the receiver. Hope you enjoy 🙂
