Today, I will show you an IoT demo made with Arch Link, We upload the data to dweet.io and view the information in real time. Arch Link is an mbed enabled development board based on Nordic nRF51822 and WIZnet W5500 ethernet interface Link which is designed by SeeedStudio. Get ready to make and program the demo yourself using Arch Link and any other Grove Sensors.
By the time you’re done with the demo you will gain the following experience:
- 1.Be familiar with mbed development platform;
- 2.Master the dweet.io IoT cloud platform.
Now, let’s get started.
Dweet.io doesn't require any setup or sign-up—just publish and go. It's machine-to-machine (M2M) for the Internet Of Things (IOT) the way it was meant to be.
It’s simple publishing and subscribing for machines, sensors, devices, robots, and gadgets (we just call them things). We call published messages ‘dweets’. It’s helpful to think of dweet.io as a Twitter for things, in fact.
Ready as shown in the figure below.
1) Mount Base Shield to your Arch Link and connect Grove - Temperature to A0 port;
2) Connect the Arch Link to network with a standard Ethernet cable;
3) Connect Arch Link to PC via USB cable;
Make sure that you have found the MBED storage device as the picture below shows.
If you haven’t a mbed account yet. You should register an account by click here.
Then import the program to you complier.
Choose the Arch Link mbed platform in the top right-hand corner of the compiler.
Then you will see the dialog box shown in the figure below, select the Seeed Arch Link Platform.
Compile your code, there’ll be a hex file generate.
Copy the hex file to the MBED storage device, Then the MCU will automatically restart.Wait a few minutes then chlik here to view the data information.
This project is made as an Open Source Project. It's a starting point. Let your creativity go wild with the mechanical, electrical and software design. Make the demo your own. Decorate it. Improve the work. No matter what, write a recipe about it.
To share and progress together.
