On this site you can find different articles reagrding electronics and simple DIY projects. Atmel AVR microcontrollers (MCUs) are often heart of this projects. These microcontrollers are very popular nowdays, especially with the appearance of Arduino boards on the market. MCUs can be seen as as small computers that can be used for many different purposes. For example, MCUs can be used for reading different analog and digital sensors. These readings can be tehn stored to SD card or sent via appropriate interface to another machine. MCUs can be used for switching different actuators like relays, dc motors and so on. Usually MCUs provide some kind of interface to the user. This can be simple buttons, trimmers, 7 segment displays, LCD display or more advanced TFT screen with touch screen. You can do a bunch of cool projects with AVRs and make them part of IoT. To help you with that, the following links contain different (mostly hardware oriented) informations which include AVR MCUs, electronic circuits or just general purpose informations regarding electronics which can be useful in IoT projects.
