I am an Computer Science Sophomore who is an intern at a small rural water plant facility. I was asked to create a system that would allow remote monitoring of the level of the water tank in a rural water system.
Part of this meant that I would have to put a sensor on the water tank. The tank is nowhere near electrical power, it’s in a cellular dead zone, but is within a quarter mile of the community center’s public WiFi. Because of this, the easiest route to get information from the tank monitor was the public WiFi.
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.
