TOUCHBERRY PI 3 10″ SOFTWARE MOCKUP CONTEST ON IOT SOLUTIONS WORLD CONGRESS BARCELONA

TOUCHBERRY PI 3 10″ SOFTWARE MOCKUP CONTEST ON IOT SOLUTIONS WORLD CONGRESS BARCELONA

On this post it is showed how it was programmed the Interface of the Touchberry Pi 3 in the mockup contest on IoT Solutions World Congress Barcelona. This software has been programmed in Python 3 using de PyQt library. Apart from the interface it has been stablished an UDP protocol to interact with the PLC via Ethernet using a ThreadSocket. The software has been divided in two files. The first one is called MainWindow, it is the interface configuration and…

An introduction to Node-Red

An introduction to Node-Red

Node-Red is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. It is very intuitive, easy and fast-programming. It is an excellent tool for working graphically. It is programmed with a browser-based flow editing. The strong point is that it allows to interact data from a software, hardware(like Arduino) using different protocols (like TCP) to a software/hardware. It is able to wire nodes, generate functions to process the data and much more interesting…

Software for IoT solutions

Software for IoT solutions

On this post it is showed different software that can be used as a IoT solutions with the Industrial Shields equipment. Firmata: Firmata is a protocol to communicate between Microcontroller (as Arduino) from software on a Computer (as can be a Panel PC). This protocol can work as a firmware on any Microcontroller architecture, also as software on any computer software. On Industrial Shields case with firmata you can use the Panel PC or a Computer as a Client, and a…
