With the ESP8266 and TI CC3200, I have done several experiments with “how these WiFi / IoT events are happening”. Now I will do various experiments with the new Node Mcu v3 card. All work will progress through this card. I plan to share the work on the blog.
Node Mcu is a self-contained structure for IOT projects with open source support. It has ESP modules on it.
Now we first acquire a Node Mcu. You can find affordable products on the go. Robotics and electronics markets are relatively expensive.
The development environment is Arduino IDE.
After installing the Arduino IDE, the Node Mcu card should be added to the system by following the steps below.
Open the Files / Preferences window and paste the following link at the bottom of the Additional Boards Manager section.
Close the page by saying OK
Open Tools / Board / Boards Manager
Download the package for the listed ESP8266
Now the list of all ESP8266 related cards has been added to the Arduino IDE. If you have any cards, you can continue from there. We will continue with NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP 12E Module).
After this phase you can examine various examples from File / Examples.
We will continue to study the projects in future posts.
