MSP430 Wireless Weather Station

Contrary to popular belief, Arduino is not the only microcontroller I use for projects.  I often program Atmega 8-bit CPUs in C for my research, I’ve played with PICs at various jobs, and I’ve also worked with Parallax Basic Stamp and Propeller chips.  This semester, I added the TI MSP430[…]

Processing-Based SudoGlove Visual Debugger

SudoGlove Visual Debugging Software As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently presented the SudoGlove Control System at Cornell’s BOOM Competition.  I was concerned (rightly so) that I wouldn’t be able to drive the RC car around much due to the large amount of foot traffic for the event.[…]

Hacker Highlights: Steven’s Temperature Display

Open Source saves the day once again!  Working off the Arduino+I2C+Processing powered temperature display that I crafted in my 7th Arduino Tutorial, [Steven Dayton] has crafted a beautiful Processing Sketch that puts mine to shame.  He created the illustration using InkScape 0.48, and has included 3 variations of the background[…]

Tutorial 7 for Arduino: I2C and Processing

This tutorial was featured on the official Arduino blog on 3/9/2011 As promised, this week brings another communications tutorial! In this video, we’ll use both the serial and processing knowledge that we gained last week, plus an I2C enabled temperature-sensing IC. We’ll use processing to generate a pretty room temperature[…]

Tutorial 6 for Arduino: Serial Comm and Processing

This tutorial was featured on the official Arduino blog on 3/9/2011 The next four episodes are all about communicating between the Arduino and other devices.  In this video, we’ll focus on communicating with the computer via a standard serial connection.  We’ll be using a new programming language called “processing” to[…]
