Programming the BeagleBone Black with Python    Send article as PDF   

Building a surveillance system with a PIR sensor, the BeagleBone Black and Python.

The BeagleBone Black is an outstanding tool for projects that involve the Internet. Access is easy (simply connect it to the router through an Ethernet cable ), and both Python and JavaScript feature libraries that greatly simplifies matters.

Programming with BoneScript on the BeagleBone Black

This Article introduces BoneScript, a Node.js library containing functions specially created for the BeagleBone Black. This library simplifies the process of accessing and configuring the pins of your BeagleBone Black.

Controlling an output, reading a button/sensor, controlling a motor are quite easy with BoneScript. If you used an Arduino before, you’ll find most functions very similar.

Install Cloud9 IDE on the BeagleBone Black

The Cloud9 IDE is an open-source web based programming platform that supports several programming languages.

This great piece of software comes installed on your BeagleBone Black by default. And in our opinion this is one of the key features that makes the BBB a great programming board (the Raspberry Pi lacks a good IDE).

Getting Two ESP8266 WiFi Modules Communicating

esp-client-vs-server    Send article as PDF   

In this project we’re going to make two ESP8266 talk with each other.

How it works? We’re going to set one ESP as an Access Point (Server) and another ESP as a Station (Client). Then they’ll establish a wireless communication and the Client sends a message to the Server saying “Hello World!”.

Getting Started with the BeagleBone ‘Black’    Send article as PDF

BeagleBone BlackThe BeagleBone Black is a low-cost embedded Linux computer that has found love in the workbenches of many hobbyists, engineers and developers. Operating at 1GHz, providing the possibility to have lots of memory (thanks to its microSD card slot) and access to the Internet, this tiny board is a quite powerful computer on its own. (It also looks great. Something about those rounded edges, probably) Its niche, however, is probably the fact that it features an absurd amount of input and output pins, along with several interfaces that allow different devices to be connected and different communication protocols to be used (you can see a list of those by the end of this post). This bridges the gap between the realms of computing and electronics, allowing to create complex and ambitious electronic projects — often interacting with the Web — while experiencing little to none software or hardware constraints.
