Tessel is a small server that can be programmed with javascript. Tessel comes with on-board Wifi which enables it to connect to the internet. The capability of a tessel board can be extended by attaching various modules. Some of these modules are the Climate Module, the Ambient Light + Sound Module and the Accelerometer Module. Here I demonstrate some of my tessel projects. Use the following list to navigate to the desired project.

  • Realtime Temperature & Humidity
  • Hosting a Small Website On Tessel
  • Motion Detector ( Upload images to a server + send text message when motion is detected )

Real Time Temperature & Humidity

The climate module was used in this project to collect temperature and humidity information every 500 milliseconds. This information was then sent to a website (Click Here to Visit), which updated the website's database. The information was then displayed and contiguously updated with the help of some Ajax. Red color indicates an increase in a value while green indicates a decrease. So in the following video we observe that when the climate module is exposed to a hair dryer the temperature increases almost instantaneously. Humidity decreases but the change is more gradual.
