We’ve created and released a set of nodes for the Samsung Artik IoT boards. These are designed to run under Node-RED on the boards themselves and provide access to, and control of the hardware pins including analogue and digital IO and pwm.
If you pair these with the powerful FRED nodes – which allow communication between a Node-RED instance on a device (Pi, Artik, Edison, etc) and the FRED cloud hosted Node-RED – you get the ability to access the Artik hardware from the cloud and to control any attached sensors/actuators.
We’ve created a tutorial showing how to read the pins and control a motor connected to the Artik board, check it out at:
Let us know if you have any questions, or suggestions for other useful nodes.
How our customers are using FRED
For those of you interested in using Node-RED for production, we’ve put some use cases on our website that talk about how our customers are using FRED to deliver real services.
For IoT hardware manufactures: one of our customers builds and sells IoT sensor devices for the wearables market. They wanted to bundle a development environment with their product. We adapted FRED to their needs.
Sensing and monitoring for precision agriculture: a US based customer wanted to retrieve data from their on farm sensors, graph, analyse and alert and then move the data into a large scale farming hub operated by Monsanto.
Sense Tecnic felt it important enough that we wanted to join as a founding member, obviously to help move Node-RED forward, but also to represent our 2500+ users – you!
