How to Add nodeMCU Board to Arduino IDE

Want to Program nodeMCU using Arduino IDE but not getting nodeMCU as a board in the board option as shown in the image below.

Follow the simple steps of adding board to the Arduino IDE and program nodeMCU via Arduino IDE.

Method 1:-Using boards manager option, connect your computer system with internet because board manager will downloading file from the internet.

Step1:-Open Arduino IDE and click on File->Preferences

A dialogue box will appear, in the field Additional Boards Manager Url

Copy & Paste the below link: http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json”

After copying the link click on OK button.

Step2:-Go to Tools->Board->Boards manager

Make sure your computer system is connected with Internet. It will be downloading some Index in the beginning.

There will be an option like esp8266 by ESP8266 community, click on that you will get an Install button, click on the install button to install the board’s files.It will download the board’s files and install the ESP Board in the Arduino IDE.

If the installation gets completed without an error, you can select the board to nodeMCU from the Tools->Board.

Go to Tools > Board > Select nodeMCU1.0 from the List.

Introduction to Arduino

Posted by | Blog Post | No Comments

Arduino Download Link

Few years ago when the programming was quite difficult,only professionals and highly experienced people were able to write the program for the computer and machines. Nowadays many more complex systems are created and their complexity is increasing day by day but somehow we can analyze and relate those concept, thanks to the technology in education which enhances learning skills and makes learning an effective learning and the technology which are easy to operate and have the similar functionalities like complex systems.

 

An Arduino is an example of the technology which gives you hands on experience with hardware as well the software program to operate the hardware.If you are a beginner/enthusiast in embedded systems and robotics

,if you want to explore how thing works and how to make thing work Arduino is a perfect board to start with.

 

Arduino company have a wide varieties of boards designed to perform different tasks based on your requirement.From an arduino which you can stitch to your cloth to a wi-fi enabled arduino everything is available to make projects like turn signal indication t-shirt to control your home appliances from anywhere in the world where internet connectivity is available. Every board have specific GPIO pins.You can attach input devices like a sensor to collect the data and output devices like motor/actuator to react on that data.

ARDUINO

Lets get Started with Arduino .

                                                     Image:Arduino Uno

                                Arduino Uno is a flagship board of Arduino Company.

 Technical Specifications:-

  • Microcontroller – Atmega328
  • Operating Voltage – 5volts
  • Input Voltage – 7v-12v(recommended)
  • Analog Input Pins – 6 pins
  • Digital I/O Pins – 14(6 PWM pins)
  • Power Out Pins – 3v,5v

 

Let us work with Arduino using a simple experiment to Blink two led’s consecutively with the help of digital pins.

Components Required:-

  1. Arduino Uno
  2. Usb Cable for Arduino
  3. 5 Male to Male Jumper Wires
  4. Breadboard
  5. 2 Led’s
  6. Laptop/PC with Arduino IDE installed

Connections:  +ve Led1->pin no.5

–veLed1->Ground

+ve Led2->pin no.6

-ve Led2->Ground

Resistors are not necessary, you can make the circuit without resistors. In case if you want to connect a resistor than connect a 100 ohm resistor with Blue led and 220 ohm resistor with Red led.

 

 

Image: Connections

After completing the connections , Open Arduino IDE and upload the code. The Code is shown below.                                    The two LED’s are connected on PIN 5 & 6.

 

Board Selection :

Now open tools menu and select the Arduino uno/Genuino from the board option.

 

After selecting the board option we have to tell to the Arduino IDE on which port Arduino UNO is connected. So click on tools menu and select the port option and choose the port on which Arduino is connected.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Selecting the right board and port upload the program with the help of Upload button .If you followed every step mentioned above your Led should have started blinking.

Anaconda Installation

Posted by | Blog Post | No Comments

Installation Of Anaconda

  1. Go to the following Link to download the Anaconda Distribution.

Anaconda Download

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  Please choose the distribution according to your system.

Download according to your system Configuration and OS(ex-64 Bit for 64 Bit OS)

Anaconda Version

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. After Downloading the Anaconda, locate the setup where it was downloaded and install the Anaconda.

4. Check whether anaconda is working properly ,open command prompt and type conda info.

Anaconda Installation

 

 

 

 

 

 

If it shows error like  [ ‘conda’ command is not recognized ] ,then we have to Add the Path to the system.

5.  How to Add Path?

First you have to find the folder where anaconda is installed,

So browse your folders and you will be getting the path  like this –   C:\users\yourusername\anaconda3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1:- Go to My Computer > Right Click and Click on Properties

After opening properties Go to Advance System Settings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 : Open Environment Variables.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the environment variable box double click on path to add path.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And add these paths ; Write ‘Path’ in Variable Name & below paths followed by Comma in Variable Value

  • C:\users\yourusername\anaconda3
  • C:\users\yourusername\anaconda3\script
  • C:\users\yourusername\anaconda3\library\bin

Replace the yourusername   with the user name of your PC and then add variable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: After adding variables open command prompt and verify using “conda info”. And you should be able to see something like the below screen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4:  Run the Anaconda Navigator using start menu and your Anaconda Navigator should get start.

 

Introduction to Machine Learning

Posted by | Blog Post | No Comments

Humans reacts on everything on the basis of past experience or the conscious mind and are independent to take the decisions,machine performs the task they are taught.Humans can take the decision by their own intelligence but the machines are bound to take the decision according to the parameters they have in their control body i.e. computer program or code.Machine Learning is the field which gives capability to machines without being accurately programmed.
Machine Learning uses algorithms,mathematical models to predict the most related outcome for a specific task.

Machine Learning is sub-categorized to three types :

1->Supervised Learning -(A training data is required to learn)

2->Unsupervised Learning -(Machine is able to learn self sufficiently)

3->Reinforcement Learning-(By using Hit and trial method machine is able to learn)

Example-

Have you ever searched some project on the e-commerce website and got the suggestion of the same product on
your any social media account or got the suggestion like people also buy the same product with this,

this is done with the help of machine learning,An algorithm is designed in such a manner to show the previous bought
together product with the same product or the product you have been searching on different sites.

There are different platforms to get started with Machine Learning, Mostly at learning stage people use Python to begin with. You can check out the Installation of Anaconda in this Blog Post to install Anaconda and Get Started.
