Looking to create ‘the next big thing’? Look no further than TI's Maker and DIY community! Launch your design with TI's low-cost, community-supported development platforms. Begin rapid prototyping applications in minutes with our microcontroller-based LaunchPad kits, Sitara™-processor-powered BeagleBoards and SimpleLink™ wireless connectivity SensorTags.
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who joined the webinar! Here are some helpful links & a recording of the webinar:
We’ll be hosting a webinar with our friends element14 on March 16 (Wednesday). In this session, we’ll show you how to build a cloud-connected multi-node sensor network using various TI LaunchPad™ development kits and BoosterPacks plug in modules. In the webinar you will be introduced to Energia an open source, Arduino-compatible software framework, which introduces multi-tasking. This combines the ease of use of the Arduino/Wiring framework with industrial grade cooperative multi-tasking for running multiple sketches side-by-side. With Energia MT, we’ll be able to take advantage of easy-to-use software libraries to create ultra-low power sensor nodes and a Wi-Fi® -connected Internet gateway.
The diagram below gives a quick overview of what we’ll be teaching how to make using open source hardware and software tools.
Each wireless sensor node will be made up of the ultra-low-power MSP430FR6989 LaunchPad+ CC110L Sub-1GHz RF BoosterPack + analog sensor. We’ll even take advantage of the MSP430FR6989 device’s integrated LCD driver to print real-time sensor readings on the on-board segmented LCD display. Using the CC110L Sub-1GHz RF transceiver, we’ll also periodically send the sensor readings to a centralized Wi-Fi-connected gateway.
The Wi-Fi-connected gateway will be made up of the SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3200 LaunchPad+ CC110L Sub-1GHz RF BoosterPack, effectively forming a Sub-1GHz to Wi-Fi bridge. This star topology can support multiple Sub-1GHz edge nodes and enables cloud-connectivity.
