I would like to thank all those who were involved in sending me the Grand prize and Finisher prizes of IoT on Wheels design challenge, Element14 and sponsors Duratool & ST Microelectronics. This blog is to update the senders that these prizes have been received with thanks and also to motivate the community members for participating in design challenges and road tests to grab some prizes along with the ton of knowledge they will gain when they complete. My special thanks to danzima and Mindi ...
I received a large box of tools from element14 today which are the finisher prizes in the IoT On Wheels Design Challenge. This is a very useful set of tools for any maker and all that was required to receive it was  to post 10 blogs on the IoT on Wheels Challenge. It did not require a winning proposal to be written and judged. It did not require competing with other makers to see whose project was the best. It just required obtaining a $16 Nucleo module and posting 10 blogs about your p ...
This blog is a continuation of the Konker Connection project. As luck would have it, the accelerometer module did not arrive until one day after the design challenge ended. However that isn't going to stop the project from proceeding. The accelerometers are intended to indicate the tilt angle of the motorcycle and this video demonstrates the accelerometers installed, programmed and functioning in various tilt positions:   Project Links: IoT On Wheels Design Challenge page   Links to ...

This is the final blog on my project for this challenge. The videos I am attaching is of the finished project. The first video is of the finished project description, showing the different parts put together. The second video is of it working in the vehicle. I am very happy how it turned out and that it works so well. I feel it will make a difference the way we drive and more aware of how tired we are while driving. This will also work well to stop distracted driving by alerting you when you are ...
PREVIOUS BLOG NEXT BLOG THE FUTURE OF THIS The Application Implement a conditional statement that doesn't allow the LOCK/UNLOCK button change unless connected to the device. Implement a STOP SCAN button so that the app will not constantly scan for Bluetooth connections. Implement a page that gives you info about the alarm system when it goes off. STM32-Nucleo Implement Security System. Implement a conditional statement that only LOCKS/UNLOCKS when the app sends data. Future Of This I wi ...
PREVIOUS BLOG NEXT BLOG THE FINAL (GIT) PUSH My final update of actual progress is what I have done with the app. My final blog will be all the update and the future for this project that I see. Currently I have updated the weather part of the application to use the Geolocation module that ionic uses in order to tell you the weather in your area. I have also edited the theme to make it more custom and personally appealing. I also added information about the app and project in the about page. I w ...
This project has been a marathon of exploration and learning, ending up with a whirlwind of blogging and trying to document the project. I have been at it non-stop for 3 days now and I have not had any time to reflect back on the project. However, I wanted to get some preliminary thoughts down before the project closes. I will likely add more later if I realize my initial material is missing key points. In my proposal, I kept the goals pretty simple, or so I thought. There was nothing easy abou ...

To get the Nucleo System installed reliably on my motorcycle required a pretty intensive mechanical design effort, but a primary objective was to get the system mounted on wheels, so it was necessary. I first designed a snug-fitting 3D printed bracket to mate the electronics case to the bike. This bracket actually sits on the saddle extension that rides up on the gas tank. It involves a complex multi-curvature saddle shape that stretched my CAD abilities:   Next I designed a base case fo ...
PREVIOUS BLOG NEXT BLOG STM32 CODE (MBED) Here is my last push effort to get my IoT Bike lock working. Unfortunately I haven't been as successful as I wished to be, but will continue working on it, even after the deadline, but will have a few more updates today with where I am at. I have updated the mbed code in order to lock and unlock the bike lock upon a secured Bluetooth connection, however, I have not yet implemented a way to get it to unlock and lock based on the push of the button in the ...

BLOG 15 : BLE Subsystem

Posted by gsgill112 Nov 13, 2017
Hey guys, Let dive into the BLE Sub Section. I was not able to implement much on this front but it is not very difficult to implement. Let me go through the basics first   What is BLE ?? BLE Stands for Bluetooth Low Energy. It is a Simple yet Powerful Technology specially designed for Low power Applications. It's Strength lies in the STATE information transmission.   So, You may ask STATE information ?? Well that means something like Is the Device ON or OFF, is the fan ON or OFF wha ...
Ok, In this Blog I will talk about implementation of the Sensor Subsystem in My project.   Firstly the Role of Sensor Subsystem was to identify the weather for ride and to send it to the User. I had Dropped the Idea of pothole detection as it was not a worth Idea, moreover In my Nextion display You could just touch to report the pothole. see the BUMP Button below !!   As there was a mBed Library available online HERE as well as an Example Program available HERE it was easy to get ...
