IoTuz - The Internet of Tuz

Welcome to the 2017 Open Hardware Project. You can see information about this and other MiniConfs at

This year we're bringing a project with the hottest new micro for people to have a play with. The ESP32 is the successor to the hugely popular ESP8266 chip we used for 2016 Open Hardware Project, the (ESPlant,

The ESP32 is definitely the big brother of the ESP8266. Included in it's features: 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Dual Core CPUs

As usual we've got a custom board and some custom software to get you started on your journey! Check out the subdirectories in this repo for more information.

IoTuz firmware can be found at

Hardware assembly instructions

Workshop assembly instructions for people attending the LCA2017 Open Hardware Mini-Conference.

Software instructions

Software setup instructions

Please see mentioned below for an arduino driver.


Marc MERLIN has written a driver for the arduino environment with support for:

  • TFT (hw SPI)
  • Touchscreen (hw SPI)
  • Replacement touchscreen support (calibration option in case your touchscreen is reversed or has different calibration)
  • Rotary Encoder via pin interrupt driven driver
  • Support for A and B buttons "hidden" behind the I2C IO multiplexer
  • Joystick
  • Color LEDs
  • Accelerometer
  • BME280 (temperature, humidity, pressure)
  • IO expander (pcf8574)
  • Infrared receiver

For this software, go to:

Getting IoTuz

You need to clone the IoTuz repo from github, using the --recursive option to pick up submodules. If you download a zip file then the submodule parts will be missing, so we recommend using git to get it.

The command is:

git clone --recursive

Where to Now?

Check out (and contribute to) the wiki. There is a pinout summary, sensor summary, power information, etc.
