One of the advantages of the arduino platform is that it allows one to store and access data from an online server. Using the arduino redback - yellowjacket compatible I am going to show you how to access data from an online server.
Step 1: Setup
What you need for this project is:
1. arduino redback
2. ft232rl breakout board
Step 2: Connection
Mount the arduino redback onto the ft232rl breakout board as shown in the diagram. Ensure that the DTR pins match.
Step 3: Code.
The arduino code is attached below
Step 4: Process
The arduino redback sends a get request (www.kisese.byethost7.com/kura/results_b.txt) to the server. The server then returns the data contained in the text file results_b.txt. As simple as that.
