This project uses Edison Grove kit to take temperature readings and plot graph on a mobile device. We will use XDK IoT Edition to build the project. Please refer to Intel Edison and Intel XDK IoT Edition 101 to learn how to setup XDK IoT Edition in your development environment.
- Attach the Grove kit's base base shield to the expansion board.
- Set the voltage toggle switch to 5V.
- Slide the connector on one end of the Grove cable into the socket on your temperature sensor.
- Slide the other end of the Grove cable into the A0 socket of the base shield.
Start the XDK IoT Edition and create a new project. Under the Internet of Thing Embedded Application, select Template. On the right side, choose Local Temperature. Then click Continue.
Key in a project name and click Create.
Then your project opens.
To update the code, find out the IP address and add a manual connection.
