Maddog in Campus Party Valencia

Maddog was here yesterday to celebrate the commemoration of 20 years of Linux. Of course we were there and we took a photo to celebrate with him and all the Campuseros this birthday.

Campus Party Workshop

Hi Guys

Pinguino workshop is more and more active. We are working on communication with sensors with Pinguino32. Infra-red communication is OK, we can now transmit messages with an infra-red led and receive them with a TSOP module. We are going to share the code today on the blog.
Today is our last session, we prepared some code to connect Pinguino32 each other, with IR, Zigbee module and finally, the communication activity will be monitored through a Linksys router with OpenWRT. Benoit is working on a graphical application with processing to display the communication activity.

As usual, Boops is working hard, day and night..........

Campus Party Valencia

As usual, Campus Party is a great event !!
After a quick presentation of Pinguino, we started a "network with sensors" workshop. The goal is to establish communication with sensors beetween PIC32-PINGUINO boards. Light, laser, zigbee, serial and interfacing with a WRT54GL for link with the net.
Fortunately, Boops is with us. He designed a shield for Pinguino 32 with 4 IR LED as transmitter and 2 IR Demodulator as receiver.

As Pinguino IDE is still an experimental version, the first day has been devoted to installation ( windows and Linux ). The second day, we started to test IR transmission and reception. Today, we will design our 'sensor network' and establish a common protocol.
Benoit is writing a processing application to monitor communication of modules.

Campus Party is a good way to speak about this project, exchange idea, share knowledge and more......
Now I must go to listen and Android application development conference. Yet another interesting subject for Pinguino !!
