Did you have experience handling scoreboard in any tournament? Now you can make it more interesting by control it through internet. This tutorial using Teensy as a main microcontroller and ESP8266 as a WiFi module. I’m using NeoPixel LED panel 8×32 as a display that require only 1 GPIO! To control it, you need an Android or iOS smartphone with Blynk app installed. Let’s try!
This video shows how to create an IoT scoreboard using Teensy (Arduino) and ESP8266 with Blynk app.
This is the list of items used in the video.
The custom PCB is created using CNC on Snapmaker. Below is the list of components used in the PCB.
Schematic and PCB files
This is Arduino sample program for Teensy board. Before compile, please install following libraries through Library Manager:
