The Sensaura Project

The reason things have been quiet on this site for the past few months is because I have been working on putting together a new project called Sensaura - a scalable and extensible platform for building and deploying wireless sensors. This post provides and introduction to the goals of the project and links to the resources I've set up for it so far. Some Background I've noticed that many of the projects I've been working on over the past few years have a number of similar properties; most of them were small, battery powered devices sending data back over some sort of wireless connection. I've…

ARM Based Sensor Nodes

One idea I have had in the back of my mind for a long time is a framework for small, low power wireless sensors that are easy to build up and deploy around the house and garden. Some of my first experiments were based around an ATmega CPU and the NRF24L01 wireless transceiver. This is hardly a unique idea, projects like this one and this one have been around for a while. More recently I moved to using an ARM processor as the CPU core instead of an AVR, going as far to start building up a prototype based around the XMC1100 processor. A few months ago I found out that Silicon Labs were running a…
