Esp32 and Internet of Things, IOT
The Esp32 or Esp8286 work well for Internet of Things. You can put them to sleep in low energy mode for battery use and they are addressed. They are fast and can be used for a lot more than just simple sensors, which is usually the only thing I use them for...

Internet of Things
Found the esp8266 and esp32 platforms that can run Arduino code and communicate over Wifi instead of USB and serial. I've created a new block that connects up to the Arduino control that accepts connectiom to the wireless wifi that communicates to these two...

logs, bugs and run once only
So now its time to implement and debug the system before going on to webassembly and object recognition. There are times when I run Hal, it runs twice from a remote login with SSH. To start Hal, I place the binary startup line in the hidden '.profile' file ...

Raspberry PI to Multiple Arduino failure
Wow! I give up. Automatically opening multiple Arduino ports on the Raspberry Pi using a unique name matching process in eprom of the Arduino is too complex for me to continue. I'll come back to it sometime in the future. For now, the code is commented out ...

Multiple Arduinos on one Raspberry PI
Wow!!! Still not done with opening the Arduino board ports using unique names in the Eprom. It's a lot more difficult than I thought. I tried using the same Serial port system as the pin input and outputs controlling the system on Hal's schematic Arduino co...

Remote Viewing and Control working
Hal is now ready to control and view remotely. We're not talking  about a list where you turn things on and off. We're talking full control or viewing of any part of a thought (object) that resides in a remote Hal. One power plant I programmed, uses 1900 co...

Remote Viewing of sensors done
Hal now can view sensor information through other computers. Now, you may say, well I've got a system where I can turn lights on and off and other stuff from the internet at my home. There are numerous system that do it, so what's the big deal? Well!!!!!!! ...

Raspberry Pi/Arduino multiple connection matching works
I can finally connect as many Arduinos as needed to one raspberry Pi. It works. I can now ignore the different operating system names for com ports and connect using names stored in the EEProm of that Arduino. Can't say its bug free but it affords me the fr...

What left with Hal before releasing
I am lucky. First I'm retired.  Secondly, I will receive a pension for the rest of my life, that is, Ig I'm lucky and the system doesn't fall apart. I worked for that retirement and I deserve it. Although I understand many CEOs have raped the money out of t...
