Project: How To Disable a #WiFi #Drone with #RaspberryPi
Quadcopters capable of transmitting high-quality video are making it possible to affordably record unique perspectives. This create a new problem in security, safety, and privacy. In addition to the concern of constant surveillance, there’s the possibility that businesses (or hackers) can collect location information from mobile devices by using roving drones. Here is a project makezine.com teaches you how to disable those annoying drones.
#Arduino core for #ESP8266 WiFi chip
This project brings support for ESP8266 chip to the Arduino environment. It lets you write sketches using familiar Arduino functions and libraries, and run them directly on ESP8266, no external microcontroller required.
ESP8266 Arduino core comes with libraries to communicate over WiFi using TCP and UDP, set up HTTP, mDNS, SSDP, and DNS servers, do OTA updates, use a file system in flash memory, work with SD cards, servos, SPI and I2C peripherals.
#MKR1000 – new #Arduino board for #IoT.
The new IoT hardware, the Arduino MKR1000 and Genuino MKR1000 cost around €30. It has been designed to add a Wi-Fi shield to the Zero module for IoT designs. Read more on arduino.cc
#ESP32 – Next gen #ESP8266 from #Espressif
The ESP32 has many improvement. Appart from WiFi support, it also includes a Bluetooth 4.2 radio. The CPU is similar to the ESP8266 – it’s a 32-bit Xtensa® LX6, but the ESP32 has two cores! There’s also 128KB of ROM and 416KB SRAM, but Flash memory (for program and data storage) is still left up to an external chip (up to 64MB).
#Googles Plans #WiFi In 400 Train Stations Across #India
Google plans to bring Free Wi-Fi to its 10 million rail passengers a day. And it’s free (to start).
Right now, the FCC is considering a proposal to require manufacturers to lock down computing devices (routers, PCs, phones) to prevent modification if they have a “modular wireless radio” or a device with an “electronic label”. The rules would likely:
- Restrict installation of alternative operating systems on your PC, like GNU/Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, etc.
- Prevent research into advanced wireless technologies, like mesh networking and bufferbloat fixes
- Ban installation of custom firmware on your Android phone
- Discourage the development of alternative free and open source WiFi firmware, like OpenWrt
- Infringe upon the ability of amateur radio operators to create high powered mesh networks to assist emergency personnel in a disaster.
- Prevent resellers from installing firmware on routers, such as for retail WiFi hotspots or VPNs, without agreeing to any condition a manufacturer so chooses.
#Project #HowTo build a WiFi Switch/SmartSwitch using ESP8266, Attiny85 and Android app
The Wifi Arduino 85 is a small board with ESP8266 -01 module, Attiny85 micro controller and a relay. It Also has and additional header for connecting an external relay or to connect sensors like PIR, IR etc depending on your application. If you are a tinkerer you will also be able to connect a HC-05/06 Bluetooth module and convert this board to a Bluetooth Arduino 85 board.
I am going to make a Swith board using the following ingredients
- Wifi Arduino 85 Board (comes with ESP8266 -01 module)
- Mobile Charger (5V 1A DC )
- PIR Sensor
- Plastic Gang Box(4″X7″)
- Varistor (270V AC)
- Three Pin Socket
- Three Pin Plug
- Double sided tape
Apart from this you will need a blade to cut the plastic box and a screwdriver
Lets start building it …
Which #ESP8266 Module is right for you
The ESP8266 is an amazing chip for all your home automation & Internet of Things projects. This chip costs less than $5, has WiFi connectivity, an onboard processor, and is compatible with the Arduino IDE. I already wrote a guide on how to get started with the ESP8266, but I wanted to dive deeper and answer a fundamental question: how to choose your ESP8266 module?
Indeed, there are many choices available on the market, and it is easy to get lost between all of them. This is why I wrote this guide to help you out choosing your ESP8266 module for your next project. This list is of course non-exhaustive, but these all are modules I tested myself and I was satisfied with. Let’s dive in!
