Abstract: Mainly the frameworks are developed for the developers for rapid application development and less knowledge or without going in depth of a specific area of science and engineering. In this research an API framework for sensor communication using the concept of bit by bit communication has been proposed and tested. That can be used by the programmer and researchers for rapid application development and research. Design and development of APIs is in Java. Sensors used in the research and development are LM35, MQ7, MQ6 etc. All sensors are connected through microcontroller NodeMCU via Wi-Fi 802.11 protocol, Internet and HTTP server for web enablement of the process of data acquisition. All APIs or frameworks of this research will be integrated with the basic firmata4J or it will be available separately so that the user can use it in both the ways. The developed framework can be used for the rapid application development. Framework APIs will be solving the problem of controlling the devices by computer or cloud. In bit by bit communication with NodeMCU or microcontroller research, firmata4J methods make communication with NodeMCU firmata firmware as per the architecture of NodeMCU and pinout diagram according to standard I/O. But it has few limitations. Now there are two frameworks one is basic that is already available firmata4J and second is FirmSens4J. It is being developed in my research. It will be updating to firmata4J.
