Cadmus Collects and Analyzes IoT Data Using MATLAB and ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables power producers, public utilities, and other companies in the energy sector to collect energy power consumption data from hundreds of factories and thousands of homes in near real time. This wealth of information has opened opportunities to evaluate energy efficiency initiatives, predict power demand,… read more >>

MATLAB Toolboxes are Now Available on ThingSpeak for IoT Analytics

Posted by Hans Scharler,

ThingSpeak offers an easy way to collect data from things, analyze and visualize the data with MATLAB, and act on your data. With MATLAB from MathWorks, you have access to powerful data processing and analysis functions for IoT data. To extend the functionality, we offer toolboxes such as the Statistics and… read more >>

Analyzing Squirrel Behaviour and Weather Forecasting with MATLAB and ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Lord Kelvin said, “If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.” In Carsten’s project, he built a squirrel feeder complete with sensors and a camera. The “Squirrel Cafe” allows squirrels to lift a cover and take a peanut. When that happens, data gets collected and the feeder tweets its… read more >>

Weather Station with Particle, SparkFun, ThingSpeak, and MATLAB

Posted by Hans Scharler,

[Haodong Liang] has released a weather station project with full MATLAB data analysis, device source code, and procedures on Hackster.io. He used the Particle Electron to connect the SparkFun weather station to ThingSpeak anywhere covered by a 2G/3G cellular data network. The project demonstrates how to build your own and… read more >>

Updates to the MATLAB Analysis App with Lots of Example Code

Posted by Hans Scharler,

When using the MATLAB Analysis app on ThingSpeak, the MATLAB function to represent date and time (datetime) allows you to represent points in time. You can also use datetime(‘now’),  datetime(‘today’), datetime(‘yesterday’), or datetime(‘tomorrow’) to create scalar datetimes at or around the current moment. Check out our documentation for more information… read more >>

You’ve Collected Lots of IoT Data, Now We Can Help You Figure Out What It Means!

Posted by Hans Scharler,

For the last several years, I have been collecting data with ThingSpeak from devices all around my house. I have been tracking temperature, humidity, light levels, outside weather data, my deep freezer’s temperature, the state of My Toaster, and air quality metrics. I just recently started to think about what… read more >>
