Connecting sensors to internet services is not a mirical at all. Here is my tiny example. I use the embedded controller C-Control I Version 1.1 with the starter board from Conrad, three sensors from Conrad, my windows PC, and a service from pachube to feed sensor data in the web.
Please download the C-Control2pachube source code. Please take care to install the required libraries before you can run the java code:
- eeml available at www.eeml.org
- processing.core library available at www.processing.org
- gnu.io serial port access library which is also part of the processing library
- serial run time rxtxSerial.dll which is also part of the processing library
The sensor feed is available online all the time. But you will see valid data only if my computer is turn on.
