Controlling Your Hardware from the Web Using Arduino

Using Arduino Ethernet shield 2 to control a hardware from the web is discussed. Arduino Ethernet 2 Library is used to implement in an Arduino Uno board as a server in an example as well as a client in an another example. The latest version Arduino IDE ( 1.7.6 in our case ) is used in the following examples. An Arduino Uno board with Ethernet shield 2 is shown below.

Accelerometer LIS3DSH

LIS3DSH is an 3-axis MEMS accelerometer made by STMicroelectronics. Its full scale range is selectable from ±2g to ±16g. The size is small and it is only 3mm x 3mm. Either SPI or I2C can be used to interface with it. Supply voltage is from 1.71 V to 3.6 V. In this article, testing and evaluation of STEVAL-MKI134V1 adapter board is discussed.
