Octoblu IoT with chipKit Uno32 + Motor Shield

Octoblu IoT Cloud Platform - chipKIT Uno32 + Motor Shield Omni-Wheeled Robot
Octoblu IoT Cloud Platform – chipKIT Uno32 + Motor Shield Omni-Wheeled Robot!

chipKIT boards have a new option for building IoT applications: the Octoblu platform! In this hackster.io tutorial, Andrew shows you how to get up and running with Octoblu using a chipKIT Uno32 and a chipKIT Motor Shield… oh, and of course, a few other things including omni wheels, to make a cool robot! Give it a gander and “respect” this project 😉

Lee Goldberg, of EDN, takes the chipKIT Wi-FIRE–Digilent’s latest chipKIT board, powered by Microchip’s 32-bit PIC32MZ microcontroller–combines it with Imagination’s FlowCloud service, and proves for himself that building an Internet of Things (IoT) application out of the box can actually be quite simple! Read the EDN review for more details 🙂

chipKIT IoT and Ubidots Cloud

View your chipKIT variables via the Ubidots Cloud

The chipKIT embedded platform is a great starting point for developing Internet of Things applications. But how do you store and work with the data that your application collects? With the cloud-based Ubidots platform, you can collect and store your data as “dots.” Every time your device sends a value to their cloud, a “dot” is created. Ubidots offers a free “Maker Plan” which allows you to collect 30,000 “dots” per month.

To get you started, they have created some chipKIT-based application tutorials:

Send Local Temp from chipKIT and Raspberry Pi to Exosite Cloud

Local Temp from chipKIT and Raspberry Pi published to Exosite Cloud
Local Temp from chipKIT and Raspberry Pi published to Exosite Cloud

The tutorial we’re sharing today is a follow-on post to the Local Temp with chipKIT and Raspberry Pi post, and is an example of how you can take the previous tutorial to the next level.

So, you’ve collected the temperature data via the chipKIT uC32 and the Basic I/O Shield, you’ve sent the data to the Raspberry Pi, but now what do you do with it? This tutorial will show you how to take that data and publish it to the cloud, the Exosite cloud to be sure! For more information on how to create your own IoT application, see a previous post about Exosite, a company that makes connecting devices, networks, and users a breeze via their cloud-based data platform.
