In present work, I aim to control servo motor as an Internet of Things(IoT) so i use ESP8266 , which is the low cost wifi module (approx. 3$), to establish connection between Tiva LaunchPad(as a client) and Computer(as a server) via internet with Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). I use Java application to create server to control servo on the PC side of the project. One can see the Java Application in below video. Video Tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NBJP0-isrg Servo Motor: Micro Servo 3.7G (approx. 1.5$) WiFi Module: ESP8266 (approx. 3$) Source code (IoT.rar) can be found in below link. It incudes both Java(as a Server) and Code Composer Studio(as Client) codes. TI E2E
Hi guys, For my final year project I'm going to be doing some embedded development related to "the internet of things". The specs aren't fully formed yet but it'll be mcu+sensors+wifi+maybe some actuators. At the moment I've been doing some research on components, and was wondering if I could get some of your input? So for wifi connectivity I'm looking at the CC3000 and RN-171, and currently favouring the CC3000. I was wondering if anyone worked with either of these chips, and what they thought about them? My big question involves choosing a microcontroller (ideally a development board initially). The final application will likely be battery powered, so low power is a must. Sensors etc need some a/d, and since it is wifi enabled I would like a reasonable amount of RAM/Flash to experiment with. Currently, since I have some experience with the value line series, I'm considering the MSP430F5529 board since it seems to have ample resources. I was wondering if anyone could weigh in with thoughts/ ideas/ suggestions? I've also been looking into the STM32LVDISCOVERY board, but have seen a few complaints with about the quality of resources (libraries etc) available for it. I know this forum might be biased towards the MSP430 but I'm posting in other micros hoping to get the opinions of those who have worked with other brands, but all feedback is welcomed :grin: (Its not a major issue for me, but when it comes to development I tend to prefer working in Linux and avoiding the use of an IDE, so any chips with compilers that support Linux would be a bonus )
