Log data from an Arduino to Google Docs

 There are many ways of sending data of logging data with an Arduino board - no secrets there. And getting data from an Internet-connected Arduino can be complex, and even cost real money to use one of the various logging services. However Mukesh Kumar has brought to our attention a method of sending data from an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board straight to a Google Docs spreadsheet. This is great as you can analyse and distribute the data amongst a team of people almost instantaneously at a very low cost.

For more information and a complete tutorial, head over to Mukesh's article hereAnd we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Looking to do this for yourself? Then you need an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board. We have two, the Freetronics EtherTen:

... the Arduino-Uno compatible with onboard Ethernet, microSD socket and optional PoE. Or if you need an Arduino Mega2560 board, consider the Freetronics EtherMega:

Quite simply the EtherMega is the fully-loaded Arduino-compatible board on the market today. Apart from being completely Arduino Mega2560-compatible, it includes full Ethernet interface, a microSD card socket, full USB interface, optional Power-over-Ethernet support and still has a circuit prototyping area with extra I2C interface pins. So if your project is breaking the limits, upgrade to the EtherMega today.
