Welcome back to another Learn Robotics Tutorial! In this article, I will show you how to use the NodeMCU controller (ESP8266) with dweet.io & Freeboard.io to collect, publish, and display sensor data.
The inspiration behind this tutorial stems from my experience in manufacturing. We have a ton of legacy equipment that isn't "connected." Therefore, we don't know when a machine is running, down, or fully staffed unless we are physically standing at the machine. I'm going to show you how to simulate machine status in a manufacturing environment. Furthermore, we will be using concepts from the tutorial I wrote on publishing to dweet.io. If you haven't checked that out, please read that tutorial first.
