Scan and Display Nearby WiFi Data using MKR1000 + Nokia 5110 Monochrome LCD

This is an incredibly simple breadboard-friendly project built using the MKR1000 and a Nokia monochrome LCD from the Arduino Slovakia folks – if you have these spare parts laying around this could be a fun project for the field. The lone sketch file is here on GitHub.

In this article we try scanning Wi-Fi network using the Arduino MKR1000 . We will be based on a model example that comes to the library WiFi101, but modify the program so that the results appear on the screen Nokia 5110 .

Scan WiFi network is grateful for each project onlookers. Put together a scanner, you can still go to settlement and follow what networks there are. Or do you just sit at the table and watch what all is in your vicinity. For example, I can see from my table 5-7 on networks. Two of which they are at my house and surrounding are somewhere in the nearby apartments.

Nokia 5110/3310 monochrome LCD + extras: These displays were used in old Nokia 5110/3310 cell phones (before the smart-phone fad turned every cell phone into a TV). It’s a 84×48 pixel monochrome LCD display. These displays are small, only about 1.5″ diagonal, but very readable and come with a white backlight. This display is made of 84×48 individual pixels, so you can use it for graphics, text or bitmaps. These displays are inexpensive, easy to use, require only a few digital I/O pins and are fairly low power as well Read more.


Arduino MKR1000: WiFi!? On an Arduino!? You shouldn’t have! The MKR1000 from arduino.cc gives the functionality of the Arduino Zero with the added bonus of a WiFi chip. Based around the Atmel ATSAMW25 SoC (which is basically an Arduino Zero + WINC1500 WiFi all-in-one), the MKR1000 is specifically designed for IoT Projects and devices. Read more.
