I'm a software developer who has caught the bug and wants to jump into Arduino. I've had a bit of a play already, programming LEDs and servos. This is my first foray into WiFi!!
What I want to do is kinda simple:
- WiFi connected
- Arduino sends a GET HTTP request to a server, gets a JSON payload in reply'
- Parses JSON and, if a certain message is in payload, displays it on an epaper screen and lights up an LED
- Message goes away after a few seconds
- If user taps button while message is displayed, a HTTP request with the message ID (included as part of the payload) is sent to the server, and LED lights up on success
My question is: is this too much for an Arduino Uno R3?
I'd be so appreciative if people could point me in the direction of the right board, wifi module and battery. I'm a little overwhelmed by all the information on wifi and battery and would love a little guidance.
