I have connected ESP8266 to my Raspberry Pi's WiFi network and assigned a static IP.

My Arduino code

#include "SoftwareSerial.h"

String ssid = "Rpi";
String password = "raspberry";

SoftwareSerial esp(3, 2);// RX, TX

String server = "192.168.50.1"; //my Host


void setup() {
  esp.begin(115200);
  Serial.begin(115200);
  connectWifi();
  httpget();
  delay(1000);
}

void connectWifi() {
  String cmd = "AT+CWJAP=\"" + ssid + "\",\"" + password + "\"";
  esp.println(cmd);
  delay(4000);
  if (esp.find("OK")) {
    Serial.println("Connected!");
  }
  else {
    Serial.println("Cannot connect to wifi ! Connecting again...");
  }
  connectWifi();
}

/////////////////////////////GET METHOD///////////////////////////////
void httpget() {
  esp.println("AT+CIPSTART=\"TCP\",\"" + server + "\",1234");//start a TCP connection.
  if ( esp.find("OK")) {
    Serial.println("TCP connection ready");
  }
  delay(1000);
  /*
    String getRequest =
    "GET " + uri + " HTTP/1.0\r\n" +
    "Host: " + server + "\r\n" +
    "Accept: *" + "/" + "*\r\n" +
    "Content-Type: application/json\r\n" +
    "\r\n";
  */
  String sendCmd = "AT+CIPSEND=";
  esp.print(sendCmd);
  //esp.println(getRequest.length() );
  delay(500);
  if (esp.find(">")) {
    Serial.println("Sending..");
    //  esp.print(getRequest);
    if ( esp.find("SEND OK")) {
      Serial.println("Packet sent");
      while (esp.available()) {
        String response = esp.readString();
      }
      esp.println("AT+CIPCLOSE");
    }
  }
}

void loop() {
  httpget();
}

I get this message

Cannot connect to wifi ! Connecting again...

In my Raspberry Pi I am constantly sending a signal to this IP address.

import socket

TCP_IP = '192.168.50.1' #Local Host
TCP_PORT = 1234            #Listening Port
BUFFER_SIZE = 12

SERVER_IP = '192.168.50.18'  #Arduino IP
SERVER_PORT = 3007            #Server Port

s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
s.bind((TCP_IP,TCP_PORT))
#s.listen(1)

#(conn,addr) = s.accept()
#print 'Connection address: ',addr
while True:
    print 'Sending message'
    s.sendto('1',(SERVER_IP,SERVER_PORT))
    print 'Waiting for response'
    data,addr = s.recvfrom(BUFFER_SIZE)
    if not data: break
    print 'received data: ',data
    print 'data recieved from: ',addr
    conn.close()
s.close()

But I can not see it in my Serial Monitor. Do I need to create a separate program for getting from WiFi?

  • you didn't start a server on esp8266 so nothing listens on esp for signals from raspberry – Juraj Dec 23 '17 at 19:21
  • did you change the wifi mode in esp? it is in AP mode at default – Juraj Dec 23 '17 at 19:22
  • softwareserial at 115200 has errors – Juraj Dec 23 '17 at 19:23

You are recursively calling connectWifi() and therefore your setup function results in an infinite loop. You must not implement loops and for processes, which take some time, you should set and ask a flag. Btw. why don't you use the official ESP WiFi library?

  • What is official ESP WiFi library? – Juraj Dec 23 '17 at 19:18
