Today we will look at the Arduino Nano 33 IoT board, an updated 32-bit version of the original Nano. This board combines WiFi, Bluetooth, an IMU, and a Real-Time Clock in a package identical to its older cousin.
We’ll see how to set up the board with the Arduino IDE and how to use all of its features.
I’ll be using this board in a few IoT projects, so it’s a good idea to get familiar with it.
The WiFi Stepper is exactly what its name would imply – a board that lets you control a stepper motor via WiFi. Its full-featured web-based interface gives you complete control of your motor, and it can support steppers of all sizes up to 85 volts at 10 amps!
Today I’ll demonstrate how to use this versatile board. I’ll hook it up, learn how to use it and even run a simple Bash script on a Raspberry Pi to demonstrate how to incorporate it in your programs.
The “Internet of Things” or “IoT” is one of those buzzwords that you hear more and more of these days. But like the term “working in the cloud” it’s something that not everyone completely understands.
In this article I’ll introduce you to the Internet of Things. I will examine what it is, what it means to your future and how you can get involved by building really cool devices to take advantage of it now. So follow me on your Guide to the Internet of Things.
Web Site Updates
I am applying several updates and improvements to the website this week, and you may notice some “odd behavior” on a few pages while the changes are being performed.
Please feel free to continue to use the website during these upgrades. The changes that I am making will (hopefully) make the website a more useful resource for you.
