Sending sensor readings to airvantage :   For this i connected airvantage to the beaglebone black and after its connected go to  http://192.168.7.2:3000/ This is the cloud9 workspace. Now in the cloud9 workspace go to terminal and in the default cloud9 location run the following : npm install mqtt This installs the necessary mqtt module for nodejs in cloud9 directory. Next I created a sample file using the following code to send data to airvantage :     var mqtt = requ ...
Setting up Airvantage     In this post i am going to connect beaglebone  black to airvantage. For this connect beaglebone to the pc and update it. Then following the steps below i was able to connect it to airvantage and update readings and see them.     Hardware : Step 1. Plug the BeagleBone Black to USB and install USB drivers by reading this getting started. Step 2. Set up Internet on your device with an ethernet cable. Step 3. Go to the Cloud9 IDE by openning t ...
Setting up Beaglebone Black This is my post for setting beaglebone for connecting to airvantage. For this beaglebone needs to be setup. For windows machine follow the following steps : Connect beaglebone to USB port of pc using usb cable. Install drivers for beaglebone from http://beagleboard.org/getting-started. It may take a while to install the drivers. Launch : http://192.168.7.2 to log into the board. Next connect the beaglebone black to internet using Ethernet or Wifi. Open Cloud9 ...
Post 3 : I have received the boards now. I will be showing initial experience wuth the boards in the coming days. For now i am trying to interface sound in the system. For this sound detection i will be using adafruit microphone amplifier breakout. Adafruit Electret Microphone Amplifier : It is used to measure sound levels. The specification of the amplifier is : Supply Voltage: 2.4v-5v Output: Rail-to-Rail - up to to 5vp-p Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20 KHz Adjustable Gain 25x-125x Conne ...
Sensors for the competetion : As i havent received the boards, to start with I am explaining in this post the sensors used in the competetion. Air Pollution For air pollution I will be using MQ series of sensors. Which sensor i will use will depend on budget and availability. Here i am detailing all such sensors that I am looking forward to. The MQ series of gas sensors use a small heater inside with an electro-chemical sensor and are sensitive for a range of gases and are used indoors at ro ...
Thankyou for choosing me as a competitor in In The Air Design Challenge. I will be using different sensors in the challenge. Sensors for ozone, smoke, dust , light ,sound level will be used. If possible will be looking for ph sensors and conductivity tests on water samples to get water pollution level. In addition temperature, humidity sensors will be used from ti. The different components will be integrated in the following way: · All the sensors will be connected to MSP430 launchpad. T ...
