This project is about making a electronic pot (the Arduino E-Pot) hat would measure the basic needs of the plant (humidity, temperature and the presence of light)
This project is a great example of the Raspberry Pi’s ability to eclipse Arduino when it comes to interaction. [Fall Deaf] mentions that he used to use an Arduino board with an Ethernet shield to add extensible interactivity to his project.
In order to complete this lesson, you will need an Arduino, an Ethernet Shield, and the Pressure Sensor. If you do not have this particular pressure sensor, you can probably follow along in the lesson using whatever sensor you have that is of interest.
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.
Iboard is a unique Arduino board which features a WIZnet ethernet port, an XBee socket, nRF24L01+ module interface and an ATMega328.
