Playing with Arduino

So it’s been quite a while since I last posted. I’ll have to do some followup posts to journal about what I’ve been up to. This one is about my new endeavors with Arduino. My friend has been wanting to automate his heating and cooling system for his home to give him complete control over each room. It’s looking like we’ll use the Arduino as the brains of the project, with an Ethernet port and eeprom to serve up pages. I’m looking forward to the data gathering and processing side of the project. With lm34 temperature sensors and using the ADC 10bit resolution on the ATMega328p this will be fun to figure out.

    Fun fact: You can have a REPL on an Arduino! Just set up a serial connection, and run Forth on the device. (I could even imagine wiring up a serial port on the final project, to be used for debugging purposes…)

    I can’t remember if I shared this fact with you at the Open Source conference, but even so, it’s something to keep in mind. 🙂
