Actiegroep @SchipholWatch heeft een heuse woordvoerder: @alfredblokhuize. Ik sprak hem over hun eigen lawaaimeetapp @AppExplane en hun gebrek aan vertrouwen in de overheid. @NHNieuws

[] Actiegroep ontwikkelt zelf app die lawaai Schiphol meet: “Geen vertrouwen in overheid” – NH Nieuws


De normale Android app voor incidenteel meten kun je downloaden via [WayBack] ExPlane – the app to register aviation noise / [WayBack] Explane +150K (@AppExplane) / Twitter.

Waarschijnlijk is er inmiddels een app om het continue te meten [] SchipholWatch on Twitter: “Oudere telefoon voor continu meten vliegherrie …” / Twitter:

  • [WayBack] Oudere telefoon voor continu meten vliegherrie | SchipholWatch / [WayBack] New version of Explane under development |
    • … Explane: er komt een nieuwe versie van de app, waarmee ook continu kan worden gemeten. Met de nieuwe versie kunnen omwonenden gedurende zelf te kiezen periodes alle overkomende vliegtuigen registreren en doorgeven aan de centrale database.

    • Daarvoor is geen aparte sim-kaart nodig, zolang de telefoon maar in het bereik van een bekend wifi-netwerk ligt.

    • Ook zal de nieuwe versie via Bluetooth kunnen communiceren met een goedkope (en eventueel waterdichte) decibel-meter.

    • is wel enkele maanden tijd nodig, omdat ook deze weer wordt gebouwd door onze vrijwilliger Roelof Meijer. Hij werkt op vrije dagen aan de app.

En voor Raspberry Pi:

Good tips for powering any kind of LED strips from the Adafruit NeoPixel Überguide | Adafruit Learning System

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/22

Read these tips before playing with any kind of LED strips: [WayBack] Powering NeoPixels | Adafruit NeoPixel Überguide | Adafruit Learning System.

There are more, but these are the most important:

  • When connecting NeoPixels to any live power source or microcontroller, ALWAYS CONNECT GROUND (–) BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. Conversely, disconnect ground last when separating.
  • Adding a 300 to 500 Ohm resistor between your microcontroller’s data pin and the data input on the first NeoPixel can help prevent voltage spikes that might otherwise damage your first pixel. Please add one between your micro and NeoPixel.
  • Before connecting a NeoPixel strip to ANY source of power, we very strongly recommend adding a large capacitor (1000 µF, 6.3V or higher) across the + and – terminals. This prevents the initial onrush of current from damaging the pixels.
  • Be extremely cautious with bench power supplies. Some — even reputable, well-regarded brands — can produce a large voltage spike when initially switched on, instantly destroying your NeoPixels!
    If you use a bench supply, do not connect NeoPixels directly. Turn on the power supply first, let the voltage stabilize, then connect the pixels (GND first).

Remote power control your IoT hardware and remote updating boot SD cards

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/16

Thomas Rini (of U-Boot and Yocto fame) mentioned these solutions for remote power control of IoT devices and remote updating SD cards in this slide State of the U-Boot – Thomas Rini, Konsulko Group:

Two power solutions I like myself are:

The combination of these allows for really flexible production and testing environments.

18650 Battery shield V3(RaspberryPi&Arduino) from lspoplove on Tindie

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/04

As you know Tesla has thousands of 18650 batteries. The 18650 battery is a strong existence. So we made this 18650 battery shield for maker.


  • Battery protection(Over charge or Over discharge)
  • Micro USB port Input
  • Type-A USB Output
  • 0.5A current charging
  • 1 switch control USB output
  • 5~8V Input Voltage
  • 3V & 1A Output
  • 5V & 2A Output
  • LED indicate(Green means full,Red means charging)
  • 3V output port x3
  • 5V output port x3

Charging can only be done at 0.5A, so using it as a sort of UPS seems not possible, but an interesting device nonetheless.

The other products referenced from the same page are interesting too and will undoubtedly bring me some new ideas for some projects.

Relays and Arduino / ESP8266 / ESP8266X

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/19

As a follow-up on Raspberry Pi and relays – follow up on Having one Raspberry Pi reset another Raspberry Pi through relay or transistor some of my research links to bring this to Arduino, ESP8266, ESP8266X and similar devices:
