ESP8266 Firmware


#1

Is there a firmware that is compatible with ESP8266 that communicates with mBlock (i.e. use WeMos D1 R2 with mBlock)?


Using the WIFI module (ESP8266)
#2

We have created a Cloud IoT platform to use with mBot and Ranger ( or with other Arduino compatible boards) using mBlock (or arduino IDE) and a firmware for ESP8266 Module

Easy using Makeblock ME Wifi and Wemos


With your mBot you can:

  • Store data and lists in the cloud
  • Acces stored data from a web browser
  • Connect with other mBots through the cloud platform
  • Control your with your mobile or PC from anywhere

Just the FTDI chip get with the MeWifi module is compatible, or there are other FTDI chips with which is possible to update the firmware of the MeWifi? Also, I suppose that with one FTDI chip is possible to update several MeWifi chips, isn’t it?

You can use any FTDI because i’s only used to update the Me Wifi firmware through RX and TX lines

And yes, one FTDI can update several ME Wifi chips
