    Transform Your Thinking

    ON Semiconductor is challenging the element14 Community to design the most creative solution utilizing their Bluetooth low energy multi-sensor development kit. ON Semiconductor wants the element14 Community to design solutions to everyday problems using the ultra low power consumption BLE on the RSL10-SENSE-GEVK. You can use the sensors provided on the board, or add your own sensors and actuators to be controlled by the RSL10 Sense and Control app.



    The Challenge


    Challengers are invited to use the ON Semiconductor RSL10-SENSE-GEVKRSL10-SENSE-GEVK  to monitor their world and Transform Your Thinking.


    50 successful applicants will get a RSL10-SENSE-GEVKRSL10-SENSE-GEVK free of charge to build and blog their project with.  They can take advantage of the ON Semiconductor RSL10-Sense-GEVK’s ultra-low-power consumption modes, Ultra Low energy Bluetooth 5.0, or the environmental or geomagnetic sensors.  For a chance to win one of the prizes below you must blog your build process and the final outcome of your RSL10-Sense-GEVK projects within the Think ON Design Challenge space. You can also join the challenge as a non-sponsored challenger, but you must include the RSL10-SENSE-GEVK in your project and adhere to all other parts of the terms and conditions.


    Example applications could include:

    Wearable Monitoring for workers in Dangerous spaces such as in foundries.

    A Monitor system sewn into Train drivers jackets

    Monitoring the elderly (Eg. see if they are calling for help or have fallen)

    A system to monitor delicate packages within a shipping facility

    A system Monitor delicate fruits and foods between processing areas

    Used to monitor Organ Transplant Shipments

    A System to Monitor Pets in Transit

    Smart Phone Apps


    The kit is supported by the RSL10 Sense and Control app (IoS ®, Android™) for cloud connectivity. Using this app, you can select multiple sensors to monitor and send to a cloud service you can connect. You can also add your own sensors and actuators to be controlled through the app using the plus button on the bottom right of the sensor selector screen.


    There are 2 modes to the RSL10 Sense and Control app, Send and Receive mode. Receive Mode is for viewing the data from the sensors controlling any actuators you have connected through BLE or the cloud. Broadcast Mode is for sending the sensor data from BLE to a connected cloud service. These settings can be changed by pressing the cog wheel in the top right of the main page.
