1. Introduction   The project was born from the need to have a universal charger that is able to charge both 1 cell and a battery pack for child car or scooter . The main concept to make Li-ion charger was using the block for fast prototyping. I chose as hardware for this role 5 modules: 1. MT3620 2. LM2596 3. INA226 4. MCP4725 5. OLED Display 2. Description of concept     On the diagram bellow are present the connection between all additional boards.   The ...
Background This project uses the Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit to convert a CO2 sensor into an IoT device. The world is becoming increasingly aware that carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas (accounting for about two thirds of greenhouse heating) and it has been steadily increasing its concentration in air since the industrial revolution began. In the last 100 years it has increased from its pre-industrial peak of about 300 ppm to 415 ppm today (you can check it here: https://www.co2.e ...
Hello, This is my entry for the "Sensing the World" challenge. This project is completely open-source: both of the firmwares and the mobile app for viewing the logged data are available on GitHub (firmware and app).   This project is meant to be a tool to better analyze fuel consumption of your car based on the routes you take for moving and commuting. By combining data from a GPS receiver (connected to a standard 9600 baud simplex UART with NMEA protocol) and an OBDII interface (anythi ...
1) Introduction Predictive analytics is the process of using data analytics to make predictions based on data. This process uses data along with analysis, statistics, and machine learning techniques to create a predictive model for forecasting future events. Digital twin technology implies creating a virtual representation of a physical asset or a system; to model its state and simulate its performance. Digital twins are continuously learning systems, powered by machine learning algorithms, whic ...

Use the Azure Sphere Starter Kit and two click boards to monitor current weather conditions and send the data to the Azure Cloud. If you have just received your Azure Sphere device, make sure to follow this getting started guide to get it set up first, or else all of the steps below will fail to work. BME680 Sensor Overview It can detect temperature, humidity, pressure, and even volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as CO2. Bosch provides a basic API, but it doesn’t play nicely with t ...

Unfortunately I found out about this project much too late. I first signed up on Nov, 10, 2019. I not even sure I will have phase 1 completed before the dead line but I figure what the heck, I am going to keep plugin away at it   So I order the kit and got it and got though the first two blogs on setting it up and getting it connected. I determined a project that I wanted to accomplish and order the parts. I am hoping that maybe the date for phase two will somehow get pushed out. If not I ...
Monitor the health of the vehicle and diagnose any potential problem securely, using Azure Sphere and Microsoft Azure cloud services.1. Problem StatementThink about a perfectly normal day of your life. You are following all of your daily routines, happily and then suddenly you have a "heart attack". When you gain consciousness you are already in an operation theater surrounded by doctors in the green gown with a mask on their face, ready to operate. You found out that there are multiple blockage ...

Introduction Hi all! This is my blog post for the Sensing the World Challenge. I would like to wish the best of luck to everyone participating in this challenge! I was always carious how much energy my electrical devices consume, for instance a Mac charger or a fun. It can be really hot in the summer in Poland so the fun was turned on for the whole night. But how much energy it used during the night? So here it is an idea - let's build a device that can measure the energy consumption. It would ...
Azure IoT Farming, its build with Microsoft Azure Sphere MT3620 IoT Kit. The Idea of this project is to control the water flow and lights via cloud. At the 1st step ordered the Azure Sphere MT3620 board from element14 website. After receiving the kit I started with basic intro and examples provided on the element14 community blogs.   I followed the tutorials from element14 blogs able to finish the out of box demo with IoT Hub and IoT Central Application. Moving forward I decided to imple ...

This is a draft version. Still need to publish YouTube video and add GitHub repo.  Overview:What is a better indicator of democracy than the people’s ability to select their leaders and the future of their countries in elections or referendums? Selecting freely, without fear of oppression and with assurance that the results are not amended in any ways without their consent. Some countries still rely on the ink-and-paper based methods to get the voting results, which can take significa ...
Hello element14 World Hello my name is Jan but I am also known by my alter ego "Basement Engineering". I do a lot of electronic related projects and love to share my ideas, especially with young people. That's why once a year, I pack up all of my favorite projects and head to the Maker Faire in Hannover, Germany, where I present them to thousands of people and let them try out my inventions. This year someone from element14, unfortunately I forgot his name, approached me and handed me an MT3620 ...
This project aims to present a device to control air quality in schools, improving health and quality of life for students.   Problem description Tropical countries, such as Brazil, suffer from high summer temperatures, requiring classrooms to have climate control systems. These systems typically use the air contained in the room, and reduce its temperature, creating a more pleasant environment. However, this system has some disadvantages. For air quality to be maintained, air conditioners ...
I set out to better understand how the Azure Sphere development process was different than a typical embedded environment and decided upon using the Azure Sphere MT3620 and it's included 'lsm6ds3 iNEMO inertial module by ST Micro' to develop a simple sensor that could be mounted on the inside of the garage door and would use the accelerometer to detect whether the garage door is open or closed and publish to a web service via the WiFi.   Web Services Back End To prove this concept a simple ...

Most of the new hotels equip an automation system inside the rooms. The standard configuration provides access to the room via an RFID card, the subsequent activation of the room's electrical system and temperature control. I built a standalone proof-of-concept (PoC) system to demonstrate the integration of the Azure Sphere system in the building automation field. The prototype is housed inside a 8-module DIN module recovered from an old 27Vac transformer. Feel free to use any box or leave ever ...
Sensing the Storm with Azure Sphere, AM Radio and IR Thermometer  The goal of this project is to build a device capable of detecting of incoming storms. I used this opportunity to learn about Azure Sphere hardware platform, about writing code for both types of its cores and about interfacing Azure Sphere with the outside world. This project demonstrates Azure Sphere A7 and real time M4 core programming, intercore communication, GPT timer usage, I2C communication and GPIO state manipulati ...
Last month I bought a cheap CNC3018 from China. Is a good machine and I can produce PCBs with satisfying quality. The big noise was however a big problem, so I built a "soundproof" box in which I placed the machine. This setup needs some extras to fully satisfy me and I decided to implement everything with Avnet's Azure Sphere starter kit. In order to follow this tutorial you need to have already acquired the basic knowledge of azure sphere environment. Follow Brian Willes series to learn how ...
