If you plan on using multiple Phidget devices in your project, then you'll need to use the unique serial number of the board to distinguish between each one. This is easy to do in Flowbotics, but first, you'll need to get the serial number. The serial number is listed on each device, or you can
In this lesson, we take a look at Radio Frequency Identification, RFID for short. These systems use data strings stored inside special tags (or transponders) to uniquely identify people or objects when they are scanned by an RFID reader. These types of systems are found in many applications such
This lesson will help you choose and install a sensor for detecting objects. There are plenty of sensors that can do object detection, each offering different pros and cons, so you need to decide which one will fit your project best. When choosing a sensor, you need to ask yourself how you&rsquo…
Phidgets supports a variety of languages, but before you start programming, you'll need to get the library for the language you like working in, which can be found on the language pages on Phidgets.com. While you're there, you'll also find the code examples and an in-depth API.
Phidgets are easy to use sensors and controllers for programmers. After just a bit of coding, you'll have your computer connected to the real world via an assortment of sensors as well as motors, relays, remote control, RFID, LEDs and more! But first, you'll need to get the drivers i
RobotShop and DSP Robotics just launched some new apps to get Phidgets quickly working on your computer. These apps are made with FlowBotics Studio, the new robotics software development platform. The new apps make it really easy to use Phidgets (you don't even need to install the Phidgets driver
