The workshop aims to serve as an introduction to WiFi and Bluetooth communication, using Arduino as a testing platform. The WiFi part will be done using the ESP-01 board; communicating with it using AT commands to connect to ThingSpeak – an online datalogging platform. The bluetooth part will focus on communicating serially with the HC-06 Bluetooth module, in a simple wireless light-switch application.
- To have a basic idea about WiFi and Bluetooth communication.
- To be able to use AT commands to communicate with the ESP-01 board.
- To understand the basics of the HC-06 Bluetooth module.
Basic Arduino and programming knowledge is needed to fully understand the setup.
