IoT Parking Lot Demo on Toradex modules


Wednesday, June 15, 2016

IoT

In this blog post, I am going to talk about our IoT parking lot demo and the technology behind it. I will try to explain how to use Azure IoT Hub to send messages between Azure services and devices to achieve the same level of communication we had in our demo. I will also quickly try to explain all the different modules we used in our demo, but my samples will focus on Azure IoT Hub and how to easily send and receive messages. 

Azure IoT Hub on a Toradex Colibri VF61 – Part 1: Sending data to the cloud


Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Colibri

The concept of the Internet of Things is intrinsically related to the sending of data to the internet and its so called cloud services. People from the electronics field are everyday more easily connecting devices to the cloud as the evolution of technology is allowing the use of smaller and less power-consuming electronics as time goes by. Still there is an unanswered question for many of these electronics developers: how to make all of the gathered data useful? Because that is what the Internet of Things is about.

How to Use GSM/3G/4G in Embedded Linux Systems


Wednesday, May 18, 2016

LinuxEmbedded devices connected to the internet are growing every day. In many cases, these devices will be installed somewhere without a wire or wireless network connection. A good way to keep the devices connected to the internet in these situations is by seeking mobile network coverage. Therefore, this blog post will present the necessary configurations to connect a device running Linux to the internet through the PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) link.

Using Node.js and the Express Framework to Access the Colibri VF61 GPIO via Web


Monday, April 25, 2016

ColibriThis article is meant for anyone who wishes to quickly start developing an embedded Linux web application with access to the hardware GPIO, so that the user can control and/or monitor a system remotely. The application developed here, is based on the Colibri VF61 CoM (Computer on Module) by Toradex + the Iris Carrier Board, and a PCB with LEDs and switches. The main goals are to walk the reader through the process of developing Node code for accessing the GPIO via filesystem, building a simple yet user-friendly UI, and using the Express framework for hosting a minimal webserver that communicates with the client-side application by AJAX calls.

Why choose System on Module over SBC for embedded product development?


Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Modularity Single Board Computer (SBC) offers a ready-to-use embedded development platform for building end-products. SBC accelerates time-to-market and minimizes development cost and risk. However, System on Module (SoM)/Computer on Module (CoM) is a more appropriate choice for building embedded products.
