Create QR Code in Windows 10 UWP

A year ago, I wrote an UWP application that can generate QR Code. However, at that time, the QR Code library I used was ZXing.Net, the last update for this package was in 2014. Now, time has changed, the author of ZXing.Net seems not to update the package any more. However, we have to move on, so I found a fantastic new library to generate QR Code...

UWP App for the Raspberry Pi Azure Surveillance Camera

I wrote a post about Raspberry Pi Surveillance Camera with Linux and Azure, it was using an ASP.NET website for displaying the photos. I made an UWP client App these days, you can download from here https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblgggzfnv0 (Because WP is already finished, so I don't provide Windows 10 Mobile package) It doesn't allow u...

Read AppSettings in ASP.NET Core

Today, I was rewriting an old ASP.NET MVC5 Demo project to ASP.NET Core, and found that the way we used to read Web.config by ConfigurationManager.AppSettings[] is no longer working. .NET Core has many new ways to achieve this. I picked one that suitable for my project. Here is how I do it. The old...

Raspberry Pi Surveillance Camera with Linux and Azure

Because Windows 10 IoT Core is not supporting Pi Camera, I can only use Linux instead. These days, I made a surveillance camera, the functionality is simple, when a person passed by the camera, it will take a picture and upload to Microsoft Azure Storage. It also got a website to remotely view the photos. 1. Hardware A PIR Sensor, a Pi Camera, a...

Uploading PiCamera images to Azure

Recently Windows 10 IoT Core Build 14393 is coming, but still without PiCamera support, WTF. So I can only choose Linux for my project. When I was using Windows, I use C# + Azure SDK to upload photos to Microsoft Azure. So how to do it on Linux? After some research, here's how to do it. My system is Raspbian Linux. First, we need to install Azure...

How to use Windows RDP to connect Raspbian Linux

Because Windows 10 IoT Core is not yet ready to replace Raspbian, in some case, we have to use Linux. The remote operation on Linux is usually done by SSH. If you want remote desktop like the one on Windows. There are two options: tightvnc or xrdp. I used to  use tightvnc, it does not have any problem with daily use. But I have to install a tightvn...

Windows 10 IoT: How to Drive an SSD1306 I2C Display

I bought a 128x64 0.96 inch OLED display, like this one: The driver chip for this screen is called SSD 1306, typically, this chip will have 2 layouts, SPI or I2C. However, the examples fo how to drive I2C with SSD 1306 is very rare, and they run on Raspbian not Windows. Luckly, with the help from a Microsoft Staff in US, we finally got the code...

Raspberry Pi 3 and Windows 10 IoT Core Basics

最近有时间,总结了一下关于树莓派3及Windows 10 IoT的基础知识。适合没有接触过硬件但有一定编程经验的读者入门。我自己刚刚买树莓派的时候花了很长时间入门,搞清楚各种概念和属于。很多网上的帖子都是分散在各个角落的,并且是英文的,有些还是过时的,有些是爆的,所以我觉得有必要总结一篇基础入门帖子。这篇文章讲的都是抛砖引玉的概念,并不包括End-To-End的Case,想要做一个完整实验的文章,请看我博客的物联网开发系列文章:http://edi.wang/category/list/iot  如果有错误和补充,欢迎在评论里指出。 一、树莓派3 树莓派是基于ARM芯片的卡片电脑,大小和一张信用卡一样。今年推出了第三代,集成了板载蓝牙和WIFI。之前的树莓派1和2都是需要用USB WI...

315MHz Remote Door Control by Windows 10 IoT

这几天我用树莓派实现了一个模仿车库遥控门的设备,分享给大家。(优酷视频 http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTU3ODk1NDY2OA==.html )   一、遥控模块 首先介绍一下我用的遥控器和接收板,这种遥控模块在中国随处可以买到,基本都是长这样的。很多卷帘门、车库门都是用这种遥控模块的。做无线电实验购买的是非锁的版本,注意最好同时购买天线。天线用的是50欧姆单芯导线,其实就是个铜丝,注意购买时候要看好频率,中国大陆的无线电许可频率是315MHz,国外也有用443MHz的,我买的遥控器是315MHz。注意遥控器发射频率和接收频率要匹配就行。遥控接收端芯片是PT2272-M4,M4的意思是点动模式,即按住遥控器按钮输出高电平,松开停止输出。遥控板的ANT端...

Reed Controlled Light by Windows 10 IoT Core

Reed switch is an electronic component to connect / disconnect the switch by magnetic field. When it touchs magnetic field, the two iron sheets inside the tube will clip together, so the switch is connected.  The application of Reed Swith: Door light controller: When you open the door, turn the light on. When you close the door, turn off the ligh...
