The project presented here it is a TCP/IP socket system between an Arduino Ethernet Shield and a program running in a laptop elaborated by Processing. To demonstrate a total communication between the client and the server of the TCP/IP socket, I’ve designed a program in which the data sensors are represented in the screen and when a button is pushed, the client or the server respond with a light.
This project describes both the communication between an Arduino Mega and a UPNP capable router, as well as the serial communication between Gameboy and Arduino.
the Sonos is a uPnP based system there is no IR or way to traditionally control it. Everything needs to be done via HTTP calls. He’s using an Ethernet Shield to translate the RS232 events to uPnP messages.
This tutorial will teach you about the working of Ethernet and how it is used with Arduino? This project is using Ethernet Shield and Arduino.
Ethernet shield is used to connect Arduino to the internet to get instruction to switch appliances on and off from a webpage. And then we will be able to control home devices through web server which can be accessed from anywhere around the world.
To test the performance of the W5100 shield, you need to know a real-time data brokerage platform - DeviceBit platform. Upload the data collected by sensors to DeviceBit through the W5100, and you can then DIY a mini smart home system.
