Simulate GPS / read Photoresistor with MKR1000 #ArduinoMonday

NewImage

Thanks to Juan for sharing this project with us! Check out more on hackster.io

How to face IoT, the best is trying and making by your self with real hardware, in my case I began with MKR1000 – Arduino, the second challenge is to send to the web the information, in this case I find the platform from Adafruit.

With this context I decide to read a photo-resistor with the MKR1000 and publish the information with Adafruit IO https://io.adafruit.com/

The idea is to learn by your self how to publish data with Adafruit IO, they have a lot a examples and here is also a way to learn.

The Adafruit IO has a GPS viewer and also a GPS an cellular hardware from FONA

Before to buy such a hardware is a good idea to simulate the data interface, the in this case I generate simulated coordinates but prepared according to the FONA 808 and sent in the right format to Adafruit, in order to have a feeling before to test with real hardware.

The serial monitor from the MKR1000 is showing information to control if all is running OK.
