Online data analysis with Arduino and plotly

As mentioned last week a new Internet-of-Things platform has entered the market by the name of plotly, which offers a method of capturing data from connected devices for display and analysis. Taking an interest in this new platform, the people at the tronixstuff wesbsite have created a simple tutorial showing how to easily send data captured by an Arduino to the plotly service.

Although still only in the beta stage, plotly offers a simple method of graphing and analysing data, but also allows further modification due to its open-source APIs and online ability to run mathematical and statistical functions using the data which you can then download. 

Considering it's free for public use, plotly offers an interesting and convenient online data analysis tool. For more information, visit the plotly tutorial page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino project - save time, space and money with the Freetronics EtherTen. Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
