As the year progresses, the "internet of things" is becoming quite prevalent due to the increasing number of systems hitting the market. One new system of interest is called "NearBus" - an open system that allows you to read and write to registers of a microcontroller - and in our case an Arduino. Thus with NearBus you can set the parameters for various functions which are then synchronised with the remote Arduino with Ethernet board (or an EtherTen!). The process is demonstrated quickly in the following video:
It looks quite simple and is an interesting addition to the Internet of Things marketplace. For more information, head over to the NearBus website. 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.
