Description The "Light Group" project combines several subprojects. These are "lamps". LEDs (technical designation: WS 2812) are always used. These are very energy efficient. You can control the lamps via the PC, the editor "Eclipse" is required, there is also a terminal integrated. The computer sends color signals over a network to the ESP (NodeMCU Devboard), which then converts it. In each "lamp" is an ESP. The ESP is programmed with the programming language "Lua", the program on the PC is written in the editor Eclipse with "Java".

General informations

The "Light Group" project combines several subprojects. These are "lamps". LEDs (technical designation: WS 2812) are always used. These are very energy efficient. You can control the lamps via the PC, the editor "Eclipse" is required, there is also a terminal integrated. The computer sends color signals over a network to the ESP (NodeMCU Devboard), which then converts it. In each "lamp" is an ESP. The ESP is programmed with the programming language "Lua", the program on the PC is written in the editor Eclipse with "Java".

Light Cubes

The Light Cubes are "luminous cubes". At the bottom side there is a 12x12 cm wooden plate, which is used as a floor plate. Inside there is an ESP 8266-12 (more specifically: NodeMCU Devboard). A LED stripe (WS 2812) is also used internally to illuminate the Light Cube from 5 sides. The computer communicates with the ESP over the same network. Via a specially adapted script, the computer tells the ESP that the LEDs are connected with the Node MCU Devboard via the GPIO Pin 2 which is supposed to change the colors. Multiple Light Cubes can be controlled at the same time. Two Light Cubes are currently in use. On the PC you should find the editor "Eclipse", a terminal is integrated in the editor.

Light Column

The Light Column is a "luminous column". Inside there is an ESP. A LED stripe (WS 2812) is also used to illuminate the light column from several planes. The computer communicates with the ESP over the same network. Via a specially adapted script, the computer tells the ESP that the LEDs are connected with the Node EMCU Devboard via the GPIO pin 2 which is supposed to change the colors. Multiple Light Cubes can be controlled at the same time. Two Light Cubes are currently in use. On the PC you should find the editor "Eclipse", a terminal is integrated in the editor.
