Ever wanted to monitor your city’s Current Weather Conditions, Carbon Footprint, Noise and Pollution levels? Do you want be a Climate Change Crusader or set-up your own Tweeting Weather Station and share your local weather conditions with the world?

Meet Tweeting Weather IoT Station aka TWIST – a DIY, Open-Source Environmental Monitoring and Meteorological Data Acquisition Platform. The purpose of TWIST is so that individuals and communities can collect data of what’s actually happening in their environment and share this data on social media such as Twitter.

This Instructable will show you the steps needed to get started with the ESP8266 using a fantastic little development board for the ESP-12E module. The board includes everything needed including a USB to Serial adapter, surface-mount LED, and voltage regulator. In addition, it is easily mountable on a breadboard for developing your own IoT project(s)!

The main goal of the Instructable is to cover all the different options you can use in terms of firmware for developing applications that use the ESP8266 to connect to the web. The content, although available, is scattered throughout various sites around the web thus we decided to condense it in one place.

9-axis motion sensor and MCU reside in tiny package

Bosch-Sensortec-BMF055

by Susan Nordyk:

Housed in a 5.2×3.8×1.1-mm package, Bosch Sensortec’s BMF055 9-aix sensor combines an accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer with a 32-bit MCU to enable easy programming and customization. It can be used by designers creating advanced application-specific sensor fusion algorithms for robotics, gaming, remote controls, navigation systems, drones, and human interface devices for IoT projects.

The BMF055 system-in-package integrates a triaxial 14-bit accelerometer, a triaxial 16-bit gyroscope with a range of ±2000 degrees per second, and a triaxial geomagnetic sensor. Based on a 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ core running at up to 48 MHz, the Atmel SAM D20 microcontroller employed by the BMF055 provides in-system programmable flash memory and a rich set of peripherals and interfaces.

I think that one day, all food cupboards & fridges/freezers will be smart. All products will have an RFID or video recognizable label which will update a list of product usage. Your local supermarket will gather this information & replenish your products as required – who knows ??

Using Efficient SPI Peripherals for Low-Cost MCU-Based IoT Designs

article-2015july-using-efficient-spi-fig1

by Warren Miller @ digikey.com:

Efficient Internet of Things (IoT) designs must balance a host of requirements that often work against each other. Low cost is important, but often supporting all the key features required by the application increases MCU pin count and memory size—two things that work against low cost. Low power is also important for IoT applications where battery operation is a must. Adding features and improving performance can up the power requirement, however. Clearly finding the right balance between all these requirements can be a problem, but that’s just the type of challenge engineers expect from cutting-edge designs.
