Determining a Plant’s Health with TinyML

The brain of this project is the Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense, and it was chosen for several reasons. First, it has a rich set of powerful sensors, including a 9DoF IMU, APDS-9960 (color, gesture, proximity, and brightness), microphone, and a temperature/humidity/pressure sensor combo. In order to move the board around the plant’s leaf and […] The post Determining a Plant’s Health with TinyML appeared first on Open Electronics. The... Read more

Please welcome the Arduino IDE 2.0 (with debugger)

While the Arduino IDE provides a simple and clear interface that is ideal for novice users, the more advanced users often report that the editing capabilities are a bit limited compared to modern editors. This includes features like code indentation, block folding, auto-closing brackets, regular expression search and replace, comment toggling. In addition to this, many […] The post Please welcome the Arduino IDE 2.0 (with debugger) appeared first on Open... Read more
