- Code Composer Studio (CCS) download and installed
- Works on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
- A Wave-One Sensor Node from Group Gets
- A CC1310 Launchpad either from TI's Store or through group gets.
The idea is the the CC1310 is both a gateway, and the programmer for the Wave-One Nodes. This is a professional development kit, this means unlike many Arduino projects and maker devices you will need to write code in C. This doesn't mean a beginner should worry, as C is really simple to learn and if you do will open up your ability to use and develop powerful application on a wider range of development kits.
- The Board Contains a BQ25505;
- HDC1000 Temperature & Humidity Sensor Sensor (Updated to Newest IC);
- OPT3001 ambient light sensor.
The Wave-One is a prototyping sub 1GHz sensor node that has everything necessary to be completely independent. It's based on the CC1310 a ultra low power, "Ultra" meaning nA of power consumption when in sleep states. There is also a great power stage for energy harvesting, solar, vibration, and thermoelectric. The ideas that you could develop with this board a prototype of a low power IOT application and then scale down the design for production. The benefit of sub1GHz are the low power and range, it's possible to get thousands of feet while not using large amounts of power to send data.
In this application we will show you how to how to use Wave-one as a standalone sensor placed where it can collect solar energy and report back the temperature, humidity and light intensity back to the CC1310 launchpad that will display those values over UART (Serial) to a terminal on your computer.
Once you have completed that project you can basically complete any project using this development kit. Learning to write code in C also opens up the world of electronics to you, as Arduino libraries are written in C and most programming is either C++ or C for embedded system. The goal of this projects simply to open up a great platform for IOT to a wider audience.
So without further ado, time to start:
