In this blogpost and this Instructable from Digilent, check out how you can control your chipKIT WF32 from a remote computer with internet access. Your chipKIT WF32 must be connected to a network, but other than that, all you need is an SD card for your WF32. Check out the tutorial for all the details to make your chipKIT WF32 a host webserver that allows access to the WF32 pins from a web page.
Another cool Kickstarter is under way! It’s called Connect-Pi, and it combines a Raspberry Pi web server and a responsive, mobile web application to create an automation system, allowing the user to control and monitor Arduino-type systems from anywhere in the world. Connect-PI allows you to connect up to 10 devices out of the box but you can add more devices by simply configuring the IP addresses of the new devices. Currently, Connect-PI libraries are tested for Arduino Uno boards, but they are portable to any microcontroller-based platform (including the chipKIT platform)!

As a follow-on post to yesterday’s post about the FM Radio with chipKIT uC32 and Basic I/O Shield, we are sharing the tutorial that adds Bluetooth® connectivity/remote control to your chipKIT FM radio tuner. Check it out!
This project may look like a cute little remote-controlled car, but it is far more than that; it is a GPS-guided autonomous car. Give it some way points and away it goes! FUBAR Labs member Jason put this together using a chipKIT Max32. Read more about how this car was built on the summary page for this project.
If you’ve ever wanted to view and change parameters on a board without plugging into a PC and making the changes, PONTECH’s new Android app makes this possible for chipKIT boards with USB hosting capabilities. PONTECH just released this Property Viewer Android app, as their own Quick240 product is chipKIT-based. To read more about it, visit PONTECH’s post!
