Windows Remote Arduino WiFi Lamp with Arduino Yun

In an earlier post i explained how i exposed Arduino Yun Serial Port over TCP.   This allowed me to control an Arduino Yun with Windows Remote Arduino over WiFi. This project is a further extension of it in exploring what is possible with Windows Remote Arduino. This time i connected a LED strip (TM1803 based three wire LED strip from Radioshack) to my Yun and controlled its color through an Universal Windows App that uses Windows Remote Arduino. Here is the lamp in action.

Arduino Yun Serial Port over TCP

Introduction

This article contains instructions on how to expose the Arduino Yun Serial Port over TCP.

Few days back, the Windows IOT challenge dropped in my twitter feed. While the challenge was very interesting, after poking around the web, I quickly realized that there is no Windows IoT Core for Arduino. Hopefully, sometime soon, Microsoft and Arduino will give us one.

Until then we will have to make do with Windows Remote Arduino. It is essentially a Firmata client library wrapped in a Windows Runtime Component. I had both an Arduino Uno and an Arduino Yun and I wanted to check out the Windows Remote Arduino interfacing.

Swap File for Extending the RAM on Arduino Yun

This post guides your through setting up a swap file for extending the RAM on the Arduino Yun. In the last blog post, Arduino Yun OpenWrt upgrade, sftp and nodejs , I installed nodejs on my Arduino Yun. Then when I tried to install some more node packages using node package manager (npm) i ran in to “out of memory” issue.

 FATAL ERROR: Evacuation Allocation failed – process out of memory

Aborted

Arduino Yun OpenWrt upgrade, sftp and nodejs

As i get to understand more about the capabilities of Yun, i did some basic house keeping work on the Yun. I expanded the disc space with a micro SD card. Upgraded the OpenWrt-Yun firmware and installed sftp and nodejs.

Interactive WiFi Christmas Tree for Internet of Holiday Lights Road Test

In Dec 2014, I was one of the finalist for the Holiday Lights Road Test challenge conducted by element14.com.I chose to build an Interactive WiFi Christmas Tree . I wrote several blog posts on element14.com to share my build process with the community. I am cross posting most of those blogs from element14.com to my blog. The following is the introductory post for what my project is about.
