• WiPy2 Micropython: Temperature measuring via 1-Wire Micropython

    One of the first IoT use cases that comes in ones mind ist measuring the temperature of your environment. An easy and cost-efficient way is to use an 1-Wire bus sensor like the DS18S20. You can get this sensor for around 2,15€ and it is really easy to implement in your µC as there are a bunch of libraries for the 1-Wire protocol. So the first thing to do is put the sensor in a bread board and connect it to your WiPy2 breakout board. The pin assignment is simple. Connect Pin1 of the sensor to GND, Pin2 to G10 and Pin3 to 3.3V. That' s it.

For testing purposes I first wanted to run a small GUI on the Beaglebone via remote control (SSH). SSH has this great -X switch that enables X11 Forwarding. So I wanted to use this from my Mac to remote control the Qt GUI on my Beaglebone. Here is how I did it.
