Makers, developers and hobbyists that are looking to remote control multiple Arduino boards may be interested in a new solution created called the Connect-PI.
The Connect-PI consists of two components that include server hardware which is powered by a Raspberry Pi mini PC. Together with a Connect-PI Web application that allows you to access your Arduino boards from your desktop computer, laptop or smartphone using a web browser.
The Connect-PI project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more :
“Upload the Arduino sketch with Connect-PI library and connect Arduino and Connect-PI Server to your home router via Ethernet or WIFI.
You don’t need to download any app, just use any smart phone or tablet to browse the web app that sits right here on your local Connect-PI server, through your home network. Through Kickstarter we hope to improve this web application to make it as intuitive and powerful as possible.
Adding more devices is very simple as you just need to configure the IP settings of the new devices. Connect-PI allows you to connect up to 10 devices out of the box but you can add more devices by simply configuring the IP addresses of the new devices. “
For more information on the new Connect-PI Web Application and Raspberry Pi server jump over to the Kickstarter website for details and to make a pledge to own one of the very first.
