Building a Sensor Network for an 18th Century Gristmill

Monitoring 100 year old factory processes are hard, but it gets easier, safer and more reliable with a Network of nRF24L01 RF transmitters. Story The modern factory process relies heavily on digital technology to monitor different parts of the facility. With digital technology, factories have become safer, more productive and easier to operate. This technology …

XMOS startKIT: Building an XMOS and Raspberry Pi Robot XMP-1

Introduction The XMOS startKIT from Farnell (or Newark) is a very low cost (£12 including VAT) processor platform that works well with the Raspberry Pi. Together is possible to construct robotics applications with almost no soldering required. The XMOS startKIT is a near-credit-card sized board with an XMOS chip on it with multiple ‘XMOS cores’ …

Raspberry Pi and Arduino: Building Reliable Systems with WatchDog Timers

Summary: In this Instructable we look at how to build more reliable computer systems using WatchDog timers. We show how to set up and use the Raspberry Pi and Arduino internal watchdog timers. We also explain why an external WatchDog Timer is a better choice in many, but not all, systems. See more on WatchDog …
