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 >>

Store, Share, and Visualize Sensor Data using the BrickPi, Raspberry Pi, and ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Dexter Industries launched a very successful Kickstarter campaign this past summer to build and release the BrickPi. The BrickPi turns the Raspberry Pi computer into a robotics and sensing platform for LEGO® MINDSTORMS®. Since the wrap up of the campaign, users have jumped on board making cool projects using the BrickPi including a step-by-step… read more >>

Connecting Arduino to ThingSpeak using Python

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Over on the Tenet Technetronics Blog there are some great posts about how to connect Arduino to ThingSpeak using Python as the middleware. Please check it out and thank them for putting together an awesome ThingSpeak Application Note and video. The video demonstrates publishing sensor data to the web using ThingSpeak and Python…. read more >>

Using REST, Arduino, and Python to Update ThingSpeak Channels

Posted by Hans Scharler,

[sirleech] of Australian Robotics created a project based on the RESTduino libraries by Jason Gullickson for Arduino-based microcontrollers. RESTduino turns an Arduino into a RESTful device and gives you the ability to access it with structured URLs. In this project, sirleech extends RESTduino with some Python scripting so that a… read more >>
