PiLogger Upgraded with Data Streaming to ESP8266 Wireless & LS044Q7DH01 Memory LCD #piday #raspberrypi
Pierre Muth’s PiLogger project is an ongoing, evolving build – as many maker projects are. And it recently got a breakout upgrade in the form of an additional display combining ESP8266 wireless with a Sharp LCD memory monochrome display. The display is currently designed to refresh every 2 minutes and he encased it all in a nice metal frame too (see image below).
For a while now the Pilogger needs a small remote display. The logging station is neither particularly compact nor elegant, therefore I made some tests about a battery powered status display. I tried solutions which I never used mainly by curiosity but also in order to continue to learn something. Especially the Wifi chip ESP8266 and a Sharp memory LCD.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
