Genuino MKR1000 from Arduino.cc has WiFi and can be powered with a battery
The Genuino MKR1000 offers a practical and inexpensive solution for engineers who want to add WiFi to their project. The module is based on the Atmel ATSAMW25 SoC (System on Chip), which is part of the SmartConnect family of Atmel's wireless products. The Li-Po charging circuit
allows the Genuino MKR1000 to run on battery or external 5V. The MKR1000 has
good 32 bit computing just like the Arduino Zero, many I/O interfaces, WiFi with a Cryptochip
for secure communication and the ease of use of the Arduino IDE for software development.
The new BeagelBone Green Wireless has WiFi and Bluetooth LE. The BeagleBone Green (BBG) is a joint development by BeagleBoard.org and Seeed Studio. It is based on the BeagleBone Black. The BBG has with two Grove connectors, so it is possible to connect Grove sensors easily. The HDMI port has been removed and the power connector is changed to micro-USB. The software is fully compatible with that of BBB and the existing capes
of BBB can also be used on the BBG. BBG Wireless is both CE and FCC certified.
Discover the Microsoft Azure IoT cloud with this Starter Kit
The Microsoft Azure IoT Starter Kit for the SparkFun Thing Development Board is designed to easily connect your application to the cloud of Microsoft Azure IoT. This kit an
'fAzure certified for IoT' SparkFun Thing Dev Board with a breadboard and wires to make your
circuits. The kit also has a number of sensors, like a LDR (photoresistor) to detect light and a sensor to measure the anbient temperature and humidity. Once your board is connected to Microsoft Azure you can see and analyse your measurement data. Microsoft Azure is a leading provier of cloud computing and the Azure IoT Hub offers a secure and reliable communication
between sensors and the cloud.
Do you want to read battery powered sensors wireless over great distance without WiFi or mobile phone?
LoRa is a wireless technology for transmitting and receiving a small amount of data over a long distance
with low power. A range of 15 km is possible in suburban area's. You can use the LoRa network of KPN, Proximus, The Things Network, etc. or you can build your own network. The Dragino LoRa Shield is a LoRa transceiver for transmitting and receiving data. The LoRa Shield uses the RFM95W from HopeRF which
is already used in various LoRa applications. For the LoRa shield various examples and libraries are available.
