Arduino and the Web using NodeJS and SerialPort2

Posted on Sunday, June 3rd, 2012 in Arduino, code by the machinegeek


Bangon Kali posted this article on how to listen for signals from an Arduino through the Serial Port (Linux, Mac) or COM Port (Windows) using the SerialPort2 Node.JS module and serve signal data to the web in real time using Socket.IO.

Via The Code Project.

    The article pointed to by this post has a broken link to the WampServer project. The official homepage for WampServer is here:

    http://www.wampserver.com

    Select your language in the upper right of the page, or for English go here:

    http://www.wampserver.com/en/

    There is a third party article on how to install WampServer 2 here (but note the link on that page to the WampServer home is broken too, use the link above):

    http://www.bulletprooftemplates.com/how-to-install-wamp-20

    Actually you don’t HAVE to use WampServer for this (which is a Windows binary install), any web server and back-end scripting language would suffice (I like Apache and Perl). The rest of this project is Java based, so it is cross-platform.

    I wonder if this approach would be better using something like a Raspberry Pi, which is actually cheaper than an Arduino Ethernet shield by itself ;-)

    Dang it! Now I see that there are so many broken (loopback) links in the original article that it makes the whole thing useless!

    Hello, I am the author of the article that you are referring to. Thank you for reviewing things. It has been a while since I have written it. I will try to check and see if there is something to be fixed on the article. Thank you very much.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
