The Arduino ESLOV IoT Invention kit is a simple plug-and-play toolkit. It is specifically designed keeping in mind the requirements of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Arduino ESLOV simplifies the entire process of deploying an Internet-connected devices network, making it possible for almost anyone (even without programming and hardware knowledge) to build connected devices.
It’s almost completely easy, there’s no soldering or complicated programming involved. Due to this, the entire focus can be set on the required device than all these time-consuming aspects.
So, if you are yet to get yourself into the IoT niche, ESLOV could be the best starting point for you to gain hands-on experience with electronics.
You must have already checked out the prices of various modules Arduino ESLOV kit in our previous post if you haven’t go check it first or you can also check them out on the official Kickstarter page.
If you are already convinced, select the reward model you like and support them or else continue reading to know more about the Arduino ESLOV.
ESLOV will help you build your gadgets in minutes!
The Arduino team, on their Kickstarter page, describes building your IoT project is as easy as following three simple steps.
All you have to do is make up your mind on what you want to build, identify the modules required and start building with below steps.
- Connecting ESLOV modules: Once you have identified the required modules, connect them using cables or mount them on the ESLOV Wireless and Motion hub and plug this into your PC.
- ESLOV’s visual code editor: The next step is to make use of the visual code editor. The editor automatically recognizes and displays the connected modules on the screen. Now all you have to do is to sketch connections between the modules to program and bring the project to life.
- Publish your projects on Arduino Cloud: Arduino cloud now helps you access your project using the internet from anywhere in the world (including your phone). All you have to do is to publish your project into the Arduino cloud. And control it with the click of your mouse or a touch on your phone.
If you have already been using the Arduino Editor, you can program the ESLOV modules as well using the provided libraries.
This can help you make the modules perform customized actions, or enhance the hub functionality, or vary and check on the communication protocols, and the possibilities are endless.
Technical Specifications of Arduino ESLOV Kit
You might have already understood that the brain of this project is the ESLOV Wireless & Motion Hub. It is composed of the following parts.
|MCU||Microchip SAMD21 ARM Cortex-M0+ micro-controller @ 48 MHz with 32KB RAM and 256 KB flash|
|Connectivity||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n|
|USB||1x Micro USB port|
|Sensor||1 Motion sensor|
|Connector||5-pin ESLOV connector(I2C protocol) plus a multifunction pin for wake up with IRQ and discovery|
The Arduino ESLOV modules with dimensions 2.5 x 2.5cm are based on the Atmega ATmega328P MCU and will have to be connected to the ESLOV hub. In their Kickstarter campaign, Arduino has promised to provide 25 different modules.
