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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
