DATA LOGGER
« on: August 24, 2010, 03:20:02 pm »
hi, i have been given a project where i have to log sensor data such as temp with a micro and send it to a PC using ethernet.. the prob is im completely new to networking. iv been tryin findin references for this sub on net but i just couldnt comprehend them coz most articles either advertised their readymade ethernet boards or provided a Hebrew like source code with no explanation:)
; until i kam across an abstract of ur book "embedded ethernet".. i must say i cud grasp atleast a rough overview abt networking..
now issue is that i have to send the data to a PC nd display it on a GUI,nothing fancier.. i need not worry about sharing info on internet. i could have done it using USB but iv been given an option of oly ethernet in the project..
in view of this can i communicate directly from the application level to ethernet? should i even worry abt TCP/IP coz im not usin internet at al... its just point to point commn on a local netw..
Well im a complete beginner so any help wud be highly appreciated...

For TCP/IP or UDP programming on a PC in .NET, see the System.Net.Sockets namespace.

For the microcontroller programming, the XPort server from lantronix is one way to do it quickly. (Other companeis have similar devices.)

is it possible to send data using raw ethernet packets,without higher level protocols  and let an appln on PC decode it?  i dont want to net enable my device. its just point to point communication betw my embedded system and PC..

TCP/IP or UDP don't require an Internet connection and are likely your best bet for this.

Has anyone on here used the Fast Dash/Data logger? Im really interested in it for my car because I would like to be able to see all the XFI info while driving the car and not have to look at a lap top. Also, there website is not very informative. Does it come with a type of vehicle speed sensor and is there anyway to make a fuel level work on it? If anyone has used this let me know how you like it beofore I drop 850 for it. Thanks guys.
