I have an Arduino assignment for studies and it requires some sort of protocol usage.
Now I have been reading quite a bit about what protocols are and so on. However, I cannot really understand whether what I have in my project is considered using protocols.
What I have is a dht11 temperature and humidity module and I am using an esp8266 esp01 to feed the values to my computer via wifi and making the values show up on thingspeak.
Now I am using SoftwareSerial for this and if I understood correctly it sort of counts as a protocol.
I am just wondering if this is correct.
If not, how could I implement some sort of protocol usage into this sort of program of mine?
Thank you very much for your answers!
