I have a range of simple sensors that I have working via an Arduino Uno and a Due. I am making a proof of concept but am struggling to select a suitable web technology for the backend.
- Collect data from sensors (operating 24/7 or on event)
- Transmit using EthernetShield
- Receive via backend web technology, ie .PHP or Node.js etc
- Have data available for use thereafter
I have done a lot of reading both here and the wider Internet and it seems that there is a huge range of tutorials/code for the Arduino => Node.js using Serial comms, which I do not want to do.
Does anyone have a suitable alternative? I had considered that Node.js may be a great option but it seems that it's complexity or perhaps newness to me, may be an obstacle.
Anything considered and there is no requirement for a heavy duty DB at the web server/service end, but I'll consider it if required.
