  1. **Edit > when trying all the pins, I notice the SCL pin on the breakout board seems to give me the most accurate temperature reading, is this correct? I'm playing with the breakout board and I have it connected to the Temperature brick. I have the 5V and GND pin connected to the 5V and GND on my Arduino Leonardo board. Now in my Temperature Sketch with Arduino, I am using the Analog pin A0 with my Arduino. Which pin on the Tinkerforge Breakout board do I need to connect A0 to in order to get a correct temperature reading? Here is my Arduino sketch... //TMP36 Pin Variables
  2. No, but I can take them apart and modify them so they will be.
  3. Threw the body together with a couple servos, NiMH battery pack, chop sticks and some other parts laying around the house. Currently it is setup for popping on a Tinkerforge Master and Servo brick. A WIFI extension will be used to control this bot using my computer and WIFI router. I will also program an ATmega8 AVR for use in controlling this thing. If you have any more ideas on what I can do to it, let me know.
  4. Here are some ideas... http://nwazet.com/plate http://nwazet.com/product/mounting-solution http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/734 http://www.serpac.com/ http://www.pactecenclosures.com/
  5. I was thinking you guys would have it set up where I would have to have 2 wifi extensions... one connected to the computer and another connected to whatever im running with wireless. Now I see that I just need one wifi extension which is awesome. So when connecting to the wifi extension, do I need a brick connected whatsoever to my computer? Or do I just use brickv to connect to my wireless router and control everything from that?
  6. Is there an easy way to have a brick/bricklet function without being powered by a computer? Or would we just have to rewrite the firmware?
  7. At the moment I only have the master brick, io16, breakout, and some sensors. I am wanting to control a couple servos I have laying around. This is the model of the servo...http://www.servocity.com/html/hs-311_standard.html I'll probably end up buying the DC brick later but until then, is there any way I could use the master brick to send pulses or anything? I'm pretty new to this stuff. I would be powering the servos with a separate battery pack.
  8. I reinstalled MySQL and got it working. This is the output I get with that command... Now, when I open the page ExampleCallback.php which I have placed on my Apache server, it does nothing but display a blank page. My host, port, and uid are correct... I've played around with these settings within the PHP file... I'm thinking my problem may be permissions or something? or something to do with the ports? I have run this command to set permissions...
  9. Ive been using parts with Python but now want to start playing with PHP. When I run the command "pear install Tinkerforge.tgz" I get this error... So does this mean I need to install MySql in order to use PHP with the bricks/bricklets?
  10. Temperature Sensor Using the io16 and temperature bricklet along with with a master brick from Tinkerforge, I have created a simple temperature sensor project which outputs its' readings to LEDs on a breadboard. The red LED lights up during warmer temperatures and the yellow LED lights up during cooler temperatures. #!/usr/bin/env python # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- # Temperature Sensor using IO16 and Temperature bricklets import os HOST = "localhost" PORT = 4223 UID = "xXx" # Change to your UID for IO16 bricklet UID2 = "xXx" # Change to your UID for Temperature bricklet from tinkerforg

    I just added to the Python section. I wish there were more English speaking people on here. I think its confusing because the forum defaults to German or some other language.
  12. Done. Although I'm new to the Wiki stuff so I'm sure someone can make it look better. I'll add onto it as I play with Python more.
  13. I'm learning Python so I wrote some scripts for the Ambient Light and Linear Poti bricklets. This may be useful for people who are new to programming. This gives a basic idea on how to use the bricklets as a switch. Ambient Light: #!/usr/bin/env python # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- import os HOST = "localhost" PORT = 4223 UID = "xxx" # Change to your UID from tinkerforge.ip_connection import IPConnection from tinkerforge.bricklet_ambient_light import AmbientLight # Callback function for illuminance callback (parameter has unit Lux/10) def cb_illuminance(illuminance): less = '''Light
