There was an interesting point raised by a netizen wondering how they could stream data from the Arduino, via the serial port, to a web page.
I’d like stream data to my disk via serial and then send it to a central server, e.g. log an event.
I wouldn’t use any separate modules.
Any help appreciated.
- Use a Linux/UNIX/OS X box
- Redirect serial output to file or Help: Read in data from the serial com in real time. (Google: redirect serial port to file linux)
- Use Apache to webify (i.e. make available via HTTP) the log
Also, of interest, is ARDUGATE: CONTROLLING ARDUINO WITH WEB BROWSER, which addresses the issue in reverse.
