How to measure the oil usage using Axeda service


Axeda provides advanced cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and machines and implementing innovative Machine-to-Machine [M2M] and Internet of Things (IoT) applications

The Axeda IoT Cloud Service includes

  • Axeda Connect – IoT Connectivity Middleware
  • Axeda Build – IoT Application Enablement Platform
  • Axeda Manage – Connected Machine Management Applications

If you want to know more about AXEDA Cloud service, click here.

From this tutorial, you can learn the basic skills about how to use the AXEDA service and send the data from the device to the AXEDA cloud.

<Go to the staging page on your AXEDA Toolbox account>

Go to the page and register your account.

As you see below, click the AXEDA READY icon and select ‘mbed LPC1768 Device”




We are going to use the WIZwiki-W7500 board, but it’s not supported yet by AXEDA cloud. So, we are going to use the LPC1768 toolbox.

Input the “Device Name” and click “Go” button. You can see the web page as below. As the serial number is required to operate the AXEDA example code, you must remember it.




For this project, we need below hardware.

WIZwiki-W7500 (MCU Platform)


WizFi250-EVB (Wi-Fi Shield)


Sensor Shield


Hardware Configuration



<Compile AxedaGo-WizFi250 Example onto WIZwiki-W7500 Board>

Connect to below link and get the WizFi250 AXEDA example code.

Link for AxedaGo-WizFi250 Example


Before compiling the example, add the serial number that you got from AXEDA Tool box.


After compiling the code, upload the binary to WIZwiki-W7500 board.

<Test Result>

Send data to the demo application

After performing the above code, WIZwiki-W7500 and WizFi250 will transmit the sensing data to AXEDA Tool box. With the sensing data, AXEDA Tool box will create the mbed widget. If you operate the A0 switch on the sensor shield, you can see the changes on the AXEDA mbed widget.
