We can monitor everything with this project, but I took the rotary angle sensor as an example.

Demo




Things Used In This Project
  • Arduino UNO
  • PHPoC WiFi Shield for Arduino
  • Rotary angle sensor


Wiring Diagram
  • Stack PHPoC WiFi shield or PHPoC Shield on Arduino
  • Connect pin GND, VCC and SIG of rotary angle sensor to GND, 5V and A0 of Arduino, respectively.

Data Flow

Arduino ---> PHPoC WiFi Shield ---> Web browser

Arduino reads the angle value from sensor and send the value to PHPoC WiFi Shield. When receiving the value, PHPoC WiFi Shield send it to Web Browser via websocket. JavaScript function visualizes the angle value on Gauge.

Note that: PHPoC shield has a built-in program to pass data from Arduino to web browser. Therefore, we don't need to care about it.



What We Need to Do
  • Set Wifi information for PHPoC shield (SSID and password)
  • Upload new UI to PHPoC shield
  • Write Arduino code

Setting Wifi Information for PHPoC Shield

See this instruction http://www.phpoc.com/support/manual/...rk_first_setup .


Upload new Web UI to PHPoC Shield

Upload remote_gauge.php to PHPoC shield using PHPoC debugger according to this instruction.

<remote_gauge.php>

Write Arduino Code

#include "SPI.h"
#include "Phpoc.h"

PhpocServer server(80);
boolean alreadyConnected = false;
int sensorPin = A0;  
float sensorValue = 0;  // variable to store the value coming from the sensor
int lastAngle = 0;

void setup() {
    Serial.begin(9600);
    while(!Serial)
        ;

    Phpoc.begin(PF_LOG_SPI | PF_LOG_NET);

    server.beginWebSocket("gauge");

    Serial.print("WebSocket server address : ");
    Serial.println(Phpoc.localIP());  
}

void loop() {
    // when the client sends the first byte, say hello:
    PhpocClient client = server.available();

    if (client) {
        sensorValue = 0;
        for(int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
            sensorValue += analogRead(sensorPin);

        sensorValue /= 100;

        int angle = (int)(sensorValue / 1024.0 * 280);

        if(abs(angle - lastAngle) > 1){
            String txtMsg = String(angle) + "\r\n";
            char buf[txtMsg.length()];
            txtMsg.toCharArray(buf, txtMsg.length());
            server.write(buf, txtMsg.length());
            Serial.println(txtMsg);

            lastAngle = angle;
            //delay(300);
        }
