The power usage and temperature of a device can give more insights than we can see directly. With a solar panel, for instance, power measurement is obvious and known. However things like variations in power generation over time, degrading of the panel itself, etc. can be important insights. Read the full update.
In the first update, we had seen setting up AWS IOT account and had used the bare-metal 'C' on ESP32 to securely communicate with the cloud service. Today, I am happy to announce an Arduino library to achieve the same. Read the full update.
We have put a lot of effort into making making demos that demonstrate the capabilities of Hornbill ESP32. The single board can replace Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a microcontroller shield. In this update we would like to share a tutorial on building Hornbill Lights; which uses two core components of the ESP32 module. Read the full update.
First, a big thank you for making the Hornbill Campaign a success. We should now be able to kick off manufacturing the first batch of 100 Hornbill ESP32 Dev boards. There is still a lot of effort required to write firmware, example codes, libraries for Arduino, and App Templates for the hardware to be really useful. We will announce a set of stretch goals in the next update, after carefully defining the work that we will be doing for the days to come. Read the full update.
