Visualizing Sensor Data with WebGL and WebSockets

The saying goes that a picture is worth a thousand words. By that reasoning, a web-based 3D scene complete with models, textures, lighting, and animations must be worth at least a million. It can’t be denied that data visualization can be extremely beneficial when it comes to understanding complex and frequently multi-dimensional data-sets. What better place to take advantage of these informative and rich 3D or 2D visualizations than in the field of embedded systems? It is a realm where sensors and measurements abound, and analyzing the data flow coming from them can often feel like taking a drink from a firehose. If you are still displaying your data from CSV files or boring tables, this tutorial will open your eyes to some truly amazing possibilities!

Writing Your Own Serial Port Processing Function Using Callbacks

Handling serial data streams is our bread and butter. In a majority of cases, NetBurner’s serial device platforms are ready for your Serial-to-Ethernet applications right out-of-the-box; however, in applications that require precision serial data timing, additional processing may be needed. In this article, we’ll show you an implementation of callback functions to handle these scenarios.
